I invite you to join me (and Taliesin) in a sacred circle to celebrate Imbolc. As Imbolc - the celebration of Spring's emergence - nears, it may feel as if Winter is deepening rather than lightening. But remember, the darkest, coldest part of the night is just moments before first light.
This first light of Spring is truly the eternal flame carried on by Brigid, triple goddess of the hearth, healing, poetry and smithcraft. She is also a patron of midwives and protector of women during childbirth, Those of you who have gone through the portal of birth know the dark moment that comes before the greatest revelation of light. It's a time when we know there is no turning back and we must continue on. All women know this truth through the cycles and seasons of our lives.
