Imbolg

Imbolg is a time of the year where the sun is starting to return to the world, and the coldest days are behind us. In this time, current scholarship suggests that the ancient Celts offered to the gods of their hearth to keep away hunger and illness until life could once again return to the land.

For Stone Creed Grove, this is especially a time to honor Brighid, the Celtic goddess who personifies fiery inspiration and the year’s midwife who gives rebirth to the sun.
