Spiraling into the Center: Purification and Transformation as the Seasons Begin their Shift

As we continue our revolution around the sun, we pause for a moment to recognize Midwinter and the stirrings of the spring to come. We’ll honor the pagan goddess Brigid and her healing and unifying spirit, in words, music and ritual. The Sacred Breath Choir will also be singing in this service.
