This fundraising Ceremony is part of a long-standing support
project organised by the Glasgow Lodge of the Theosophical
Society. Since 2015, when an earthquake devastated many
villages and cities in Nepal, the Lodge has provided funds which
have supported the rebuilding of the Shree Saraswoti School in
the Sudurpaschim Province and paid the school fees for
orphaned and impoverished children.
The Ceremony will be facilitated by Fotoula as a gift from the
ISIS School of Holistic Health. The Ceremony is online and open
to all. Entry is by donation and all proceeds go directly to the
Society’s Nepalese Children Support Project. The donations are
collected by the Glasgow Theosophical Society and sent to
Nepal once a year.
To book your place and make a donation please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the Society’s bank account details, as well as the zoom link for the Ceremony.
Online Fundraising Ceremony – Imbolc & New Moon
Tuesday, 1st February, 19.00-20.30 (uk time)
At Imbolc our ancestors lit fires on the hilltops
to celebrate the coming of spring – the time of regeneration and the arrival of the life-giving energy
of the sun. As the daylight grows and the first green shoots appear out of the soil, we are filled by the hope of the spring, heralding the time of prosperity and abundance.
Spiritually this is the time when the Goddess leaves the Underworld and emerges on the Earth. The old woman, dressed in heavy woollen robes, transforms into the young maiden who walks the land bringing growth and light. Her radiance melts the snow and softens the hard ground.
In this Imbolc Ceremony, facilitated by Fotoula, we will work with the fire element to light our way out
of the Underworld, honour the gifts of winter, and emerge into our ‘spring’ self – the one who walks towards the light. In doing so, we discover that we are the fire, the light, and the spring. And we will embrace this new beginning that the cycle of
seasons and the river of life activates within us.
