Imbolc is said to be from an old Irish word that means “in the belly,” referring to the pregnant ewes who were about to give birth to their lambs. During this time we celebrate the turning of Winter to Spring. In addition, this is also the time to honor Brigid, the goddess of fire, the sun, the hearth, smithcraft, healing, poetry and fertility among many other things.
The Sylvan Sanctuary Druids’ Imbolc Ritual involves a bit of preparation. We bless our Brigid’s Mantles the night before the ritual by leaving them out to collect the dew of the morning. This is called a Brat Bhríde, it is then blessed at the ritual by many hands and worn for personal protection and health throughout the year. Please join us for ritual and pot luck afterwards. As always ritual attire is not required. Please bring a dish to share, a donation to the Monthly Lawrenceville Co-op Food Drive, a wand or staff, and a noise maker.


Come be Curious, Courageous, and Compassionate with us as we strive to be a radically welcoming     sanctuary in a green space, and foster spiritual growth as we joyfully nurture connections and community within our walls and beyond.
