New Beginnings – Creative Workshop: St Brigid & Imbolc Celebration 2024


New beginnings – Setting revitalizing goals and taking time in Nature

Join us at Festina Lente on Sat Feb 03, for an enchanting morning of creativity and celebration. Embrace the spirit of new beginnings as we honor St Brigid and Imbolc, marking the arrival of spring. The rich history and symbolism behind ancient traditions continue to shape our lives today.

To mark the beginning of Spring: take time to ground, set intentions and create new beginnings with a holistic workshop that will help you add zest and spring into a new chapter of life and renewal.

  • Grounding Imbolc mindfulness sensory walk in the tranquillity of the beautiful walled gardens
  • Native Irish Herbal tea ceremony – make and sip a unique local blend to help nurture fresh intentions and new intentions for the season and eat some traditional St Brigid’s Sweet Bannock (gluten free and low sugar version)
  • Unique Brigid Cloak journaling session – creative prompts and plant-based journaling materials that facilitate and uncloak creation of personal spring action goals and renewal of hope and joy. Take time to set meaningful intentions through a guided, light and fun reflective journaling session.
  • Seasonal plant crafting – inspired by the abundant ways of Brigid: cloaks, nature crosses and landscape collages to decor your creative, desk, home sacred spaces
  • Time to self care more deeply: Make therapeutic plant salt and aromatherapy jars to take home – forage and collect wild plants and herbs to create a “new beginning” blend to renew and energize your mind and body. This take away will help you create a soft and warm heart as you enter new beginnings – and support in letting go of what no longer serves the new you.
  • Edible seed sowing – microgreens and herbal seed sowing to tantalize your new inner and outer garden life!
  • Refreshments
