Come Celebrate Imbolc at Jubilee!
Imbolc is halfway between the dark of winter and the beginning of spring.  At this time of year, winter is in full swing.  Will spring arrive?  Will we have enough to carry us through?  In the depths of the darkness, many use this time to say yes to life.  To feel the spark return, and nurture it into its fullness.  It is a time of light and purification. We will welcome Imbolc with Kirtan and Music with Melanie Leenhouts and Amah Mitchell, a Ceremony by the amazing Byron Ballard, followed by Circle Dancing and more.  Friday evening,  February 3rd, from 7 to 10 pm at Jubilee!.  By donation, but no one will be turned away!
