Celtic Prayer Circle 2020 - 2021
Artist Jaine Rose
Join us as we continue to celebrate and journey through all eight Celtic seasons acknowledging their individual qualities and energies, gifts, symbols and significance. In the Celtic tradition, the changing seasons were considered “thin places” where the veil between heaven and earth lifted or was nearly transparent. In such thin places, the Celts experienced a deep sense of God’s presence especially through awareness of and alignment with the natural world.
As a community, we seek to cultivate a sense of God by celebrating each season’s special energy through prayer, reflection, chant, ritual, poetry and music, honoring the Sacred in all of creation. The Celtic Wheel of the Year offers an inspirational model and context in which to place the reality of our joys and sorrows within Nature’s rhythms: The continuing birth, death and resurrection of life.
Due to ongoing COVID-19 issues, these upcoming gatherings will not meet onsite. Please consider signing up for our free e-newsletter to receive related materials for Celtic celebrations or register for the upcoming Imbolc program:
- December 21, 2020, Winter Solstice/Yule starts the journey of continual sinking and letting go, deeply surrendering to the Holy present in the darkness. Celebratory materials, including a YouTube video, will be distributed in our December 21 e-news.
- February 1, 2021, Brigid and the Winter of Our Discontent: An Imbolc Invocation and Practice, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. EDT. This will be a live, virtual program led by Jane Burns, a teacher and practitioner of Celtic Shamanism. Registration will begin on January 7, 2021. Imbolc, also known as the Feast Day of Saint Brigid, marks the beginning of spring, as it lands halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.
