Please join me for a relaxing celebration of the FeastDay of St Brigid of Kildare, Ireland! In addition to art, herb planting, and fire, I will also be debuting a group healing meditation experience! It will be a first run for what I intend to be a monthly practice, available live via conference call, or in a recording. See below for the scheduled meditation times.
I will also be working on my shower mosaic, and offering various artwork stations, including mosaic**, collage, and coloring pages. You are welcome to bring whatever artwork (painting, drawing, or other art forms are welcome!) you may be creating, to work in community.
We will have herb seeds to plant (bring your own pot, or use one of my strays!), and you will have the opportunity to create your own herbal blend with essential oils.**
There are books to read, journaling questions to respond to, and artwork to reflect whatever you may be working on personally.
There will be healthy snacks and lunch!
We will also keep a fire burning in my outdoor fire pit in honor of the eternal flame that Brigid's nuns were said to have kept at their monastery.
St Brigid of Kildare lived from 451-525 in Ireland and founded an abbess of women, as well as a school of art.
She is known for dramatic healings and miracles, and is thought to be connected with the Celtic goddess, Brigid. Her FeastDay is February 1, which is also the festival of Imbolc, the midway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, and marks the beginning of Spring.
I am grateful for the nudge I received my friend, colleague, and healer, Heather Neary, to create a community event for this special day. She drew my attention to what is occurring in the cosmos, and the Mayan calendar map of synchronicity, the Dreamspell. Let me share the synchronicities that seemed to shouted out to her, and then to me...
First - January 31, 2018 (the Eve of Brigid's Feast Day) is the third super Full Moon in a row, and coincides with a complete lunar eclipse - the start of an "eclipse portal," which is a powerful time to be conscious of new beginnings and openings. We will have some powerful cosmos energy accompanying us!! (Ask me about Heather's Circles to help us be fully conscious of these energies!)
Second - In the Dreamspell calendar there are cycles upon cycles that include archetypal patterns, each archetype governed by a goddess (intuited by Heather). Feb 1, 2018 is smack dab in the middle of a 13 day cycle of the Yellow Star, The Artist, governed by ---none other than Brigid!
Third - Each of us holds an archetypal energy based on our birthdate. Mine is guided by the Yellow Star, The Artist - BRIGID!!
I realize that "Thursday" is not the usual time for doing a day long event! I felt it important to honor Brigid, and the healing, art, and herbal energies that she brings, on the actual Feast Day. Especially since it follows on the heals of the Full Moon and the eclipse. I would be delighted for you to participate all day long, or for whatever portion you can be present!
And Hey - maybe it's time to take a day off work for Self Care??
Bring a friend, if you like!
