There will be Walking Labyrinth, a public path of lights ritual for Imbolc in the upstairs room of Melange Magique.
You can show up anytime during the open hours of the ritual as it is not a formal ritual structure. We will be offering visitors the chance to walk the labyrinth of candles in meditation or contemplation. Your walk is the ritual.
Note: Please bring a small item to put on the altar. This item will be passed on to another person. Please no flowy robes/clothes as the candles are all on the floor.
Many bright blessings
Il y aura un labyrinthe public de lumière pour le rituel de Imbolc au second étage du Mélange Magique.
Vous pouvez vous présenter à n’importe quelle heure durant les heures de disponibilités du rituel car il ne s’agit pas d’un rituel structuré. Tous les visiteurs auront la chance de marcher au travers le labyrinthe soit en méditant ou par pur contemplation. Votre parcours est le rituel.
Note : Nous vous prions d’apporter un petit objet à placer sur l’autel. Cet item sera transmis à quelqu’un d’autre. SVP, ne portez pas de robes ou de vêtements longs car les chandelles seront placées sur le sol.
Joyeux Imbolc!
