Start getting ready for spring now.
The beginning of a new year is the perfect time for new beginnings. At Imbolc, in February, we celebrated the first tiny stirrings below the surface of the earth. At least, in theory.

Here’s a three-step plan to bringing the New Year’s burst of energy into your life for more than just an evening!
