Imbolc 2018

Blessed Imbolc has arrived!

Imbolc actually means “in the belly”.  It refers to an ancient Celtic celebration that was held in the early days of February. This is the time in the northern hemisphere when ewe bellies are fattening with the new life growing within. We are halfway between winter solstice and spring equinox. The wheel of the year has officially turned toward spring!

For more information, please check out Nancy’s 2017 article on Imbolc:

Turning Towards Spring

The Sound of Snow

She asked me how to describe the sound
of snow falling softly in the mountains.
I stood among the flurries until the tears came,
until I couldn’t stop them. Not even
if I’d wanted to,
and I didn’t.
And, after a good long while, I replied:
“You must let your heart break for want of love. 
You must listen carefully when it does. 
Whatever it is you hear then,
that is it;
That is the sound of snow falling,
in the mountains.”

Emotional Supermoon

‪Take time for love and nurturing during this watery full moon.

pushes and pulls at us all,

triggering more raw emotion than usual.

Gently hold your “baby self” close. 



Protect the Earth and Water

“We are here to protect the earth and the water.
This is why we are still alive. To do this very thing we are doing.
To help humanity answer its most pressing question:

How do we live with the earth again, not against it?”

~LaDonna Brave Bull Allard at Standing Rock
