Threshold Path of Imbolc on the Labyrinth: with Barrie Gibby (via Zoom)

January 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


In celebration of Imbolc on Feb. 1, that powerful Celtic Fire Festival between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox, let’s light our “inextinguishable fire” on this eve, in honor of Brighid/Bride/St. Brigid, the ancient goddess-turned-saint, who brings us together under the Great Oak to cross seasonal thresholds of our lives. In this “thin place” time of emerging light, when life is quickening beneath us, we take stock of what to leave behind and remember our own ancestors who gather at our hearth. What is the wisdom of Imbolc and Brigid that we can embrace in our “blue cloak” to carry forward?

Thresholds onto the path, the turns and center place of the labyrinth will be the desk-size meditation platform to walk and culminate our time together (downloads included). Rituals, Celtic stories, labyrinth background and some deeper dives into this thin place will accompany the evening. Instructions for Brigid’s reed cross sent in advance.

Resources sent in advance. Open to all.

Leader: Barrie Carter Gibby works on the creative edge between the branches of words and movement expression. An educator, social justice activist, accomplished pianist, theater director, and labyrinth facilitator, she facilitates retreats to an international audience on a variety of themes. As a member of the Veriditas Faculty (Worldwide Labyrinth Project), Veriditas Council and an Advanced Certified Labyrinth facilitator, Barrie finds sacred spaces everywhere.

Cost: $40. Sessions will be recorded for those with schedule conflicts.

This workshop is a natural extension of our programming, as RCWMS has been using its own 40’ x 40’ canvas labyrinth since 1998.
