Imbolc Fire Walk 2020
February 1 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm£50
The Imbolc Fire Walk
At this time of Imbolc, when life is resting still beneath the chilled earth, we invite you to join us on the land to feel the primal call of spring as it awakens. To witness the first green shoots pushing through solid ground to rejoice in warmth returning. To witness that which we left sleeping in the dead of winter come to fruition. At this balancing time between spring and winter, life and death, lies the perfect opportunity to release that that no longer serves us and nurture the new and precious within. As the seed dreams in the earth, there is a spark of creation deep inside us, a pure potential that can be awakened at this time.
For centuries the people of these lands have lit fires in this season, in honour of the primal force of spring returning. Celebrations to honour the maiden, the Celtic fire Goddess Bridget, would be held in the spirit of growth and renewal. Patron of smith craft, healing, midwifery, she invites you to step into the transformative fires of her forge. She asks us to walk through her deep and cleansing fire and let all that is impure, that impedes or restrains us, to be taken. To brave the crucible and let ourselves be reformed stronger, purer and more complete. When we walk with the intention and own the force within, we not only transform ourselves, we light the fire of inspiration in others. We become powerful agents of creativity in the world. Join us and answer the promise of spring within.
Firewalking is an act of self-discovery practiced for millennia all over the world. It is a symbolic rite of passage. Just as the wildfires in nature burn away dead and lifeless debris left on the land and fertilise it with ash, creating space for the sunlight and rain to reach the seeds of new growth, so the Firewalk allows us to release energetic and emotional burdens to the Fire, making way for new beginnings.
What you can expect and look forward to for the Imbolc walk.
On arrival I shall invite a moment to connect with yourselves and each other, I will guide you in a meditation of intent. Then as a newly formed tribe for the evening, we shall light the fire and connect with that flame. After the walk we shall come together once more to connect and reflect.
Every Fire-Walk I run, is guided by source, guided by the inner wisdom and connection with the universe. You’re journey will be your’s alone, and unique for where your journey is at that time. If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
As we come together, we come together with a common goal,
to light the fires,
to walk the coals,
to let go of that which needs to be re-born anew in the Fires of Life.
