Frederick CUUPS Imbolc Ritual
Friday, February 5th, 7 PM
 
The smallest flame can bring light into even the coldest, darkest night, and so we will honor the sparks that, together, grow into a fiery blaze. In this Imbolc ritual, we will honor the theme of hope and the growing light that is returning to the world. We will feel our hope rekindled within us. This ritual will allow space for visioning, reflection, and intention setting by meditating on the Thorns, Buds, and Blooms currently sprouting from the cold earth in the gardens of our lives and community.
 
Supplies Needed:
Three Candles.
Three strips of paper (for burning).
A writing utensil.
A safe vessel in which to burn your papers.

High Holiday Rituals

We gather to celebrate each of the eight holidays, or Sabbats, on the Wheel of the Year, which mark the seasons of the Sun — the Solstices, Equinoxes, and points in between in European traditions. All rituals are family-friendly unless otherwise specified.

Earth Centered Spirituality Services

Our Earth-centered Spirituality Group meets on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 10:30 a.m. in the Chapel (11:30 during the summer).  Our time together provides an opportunity to focus on the Sixth Source of Unitarian Universalism: “Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.” Please visit our calendar page to confirm the time and date of future gatherings.

Full Moon Labyrinth Walks, Donation Energy Healing & Divination Practice

Once a month we gather to enjoy the beauty and peace of the Labyrinth by the light of the full moon. During the warmer months in clear weather, we walk the outdoor Labyrinth at the UUCF.  During the cooler months and in wet weather, we walk an indoor canvas labyrinth in the Chapel.  A Labyrinth Walk is not a ritual with a set start and ending time.  It is an open space where you can come walk the Labyrinth in your own time.  During the latter part of of outdoor Labyrinth walks, hand drumming is welcome.

Donation energy healing is available. Divination practice is welcome – please feel free to bring your preferred divinatory tool (runes, tarot, ogham, etc) to practice/trade readings.
