Free Gift for Imbolc and the Feast of St. Brigid

Free gift! A mini-retreat for Imbolc and the Feast of St. Brigid

SONY DSCWe are delighted to offer you the gift of a mini-retreat called Stirring in the Belly to help celebrate the feasts of Imbolc and St. Brigid.

We have offered this mini-retreat in the past as a free gift, but this year it has been expanded to include new reflections on Brigid by Christine, reflections on the Presentation in the Temple by John (February 2nd is the Feast of the Presentation), as well as the gift of a new video of a song on Brigid we had especially commissioned for the Abbey by Laura Ash, and Betsey Beckman teaches you a beautiful movement prayer based on this music. This is in addition to the previous resources of poetry, a guided lectio practice (with audio recording by Christine if you desire), and suggestions for a contemplative walk and creative expression.

If this resource excites you, please consider joining us for Sacred Seasons, a new yearlong program through the Celtic wheel of the year we are offering. Discounts for early registration and combined registration with Lent’s online retreat The Soul’s Slow Ripening: Monastic Wisdom for Discernment.

Feel free to share this free Imbolc resource with others you think might enjoy it!
