* IMBOLC AT NATALIE'S HOUSE
Thurs. Jan 29, 5:30
Gathering at Natalie's home as on Halloween: 1704 Conger Ave, West Oly, a few blocks off Division. Potluck, Song Circle and Imbolc Meditation led by Philip. Important: everyone please contribute food, as Fred can't be there!
Imbolc is the ancient festival of energy-renewal, when the Goddess enlivens the sleeping seed in Winter's womb, and awakens the first faint stirring of Spring. This ancient European festival to the Irish Goddess Bride became St. Brigid's Day in the Church, and Ground Hog's Day in America!

6:20 Taize´ chant and Centering Prayer with Mary Solberg
Skilled instructor Mary Solberg shares this ancient art of mystical inner silence practiced by Christian contemplatives in the Middle Ages, revived for our interfaith world: An original legacy of Western mindfulness meditation: graceful, simple, useful for all faith traditions.

Bring love poems to your heart, to your lover's heart, to God, Goddess or Nature's smallest creatures! Share poems of love, mystical or sensual, by you or by another. Valentine's Day is an excuse to remember the Heart. 5:30 Potluck followed by Song & Poetry Circle.
