Brigid’s Well (Imbolc) – In many countries February 2nd is celebrated as Candlemas or Dia de la Candelaria. Starting on the Eve of the 2nd, other parts of the world celebrate St. Brigid’s Day or Imbolc, and for the non-religious there is Groundhog day! Wells are particularly sacred to Brigid, a goddess of transformations, and wells and springs are life giving places. How do we fill our buckets from the well? And what shall we do with this complex, painful, beautiful, unfathomable, time we have been given?
