We are still in the energy of the New Year, and in the time of renewal, which brings us to the next High Holy Day which is Imbolc.

With the cold and rain it’s hard to know that Spring is coming but already the beginning of Spring has started. That is why we celebrate the High Holiday of Imbolc. This festival is halfway between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. It is also the Chinese Year of the Earth Dog which is a time for honesty, fairness, and to cultivate integrity of character. The Chinese element Earth brings healing and stability for the coming year.
During this time of year, it is traditional to make or renew Spiritual commitments. The Daughters of the Goddess Temple Dedication Ceremony is where we come together to learn and understand more about the Aloha Dianic Tradition for a year and day. The Daughters of the Goddess Temple is a unique mix of Hawaiian Spiritual traditions and Dianic Witchcraft. This is the time to dive in and learn more about the Daughters of the Goddess Temple and the Temple Mission. The Temple Mission Statement is, “Daughters of the Goddess is An Aloha-Dianic, Womyn-only Goddess Temple dedicated in the Spirit of Aloha to preservation, perpetuation and promotion of Goddess & Indigenous cultures, public ceremony, ritual and Womyn’s Mysteries.”
We circle around an Altar built for three of our Temples’ main Goddesses: Bridget, Laka, and Artemis. Bridget is the Celtic Goddess of fire, healing, the arts, and especially smith craft. Laka is the Hawaiian Goddess of the forest, Hula and Sacred lands. Artemis is the Greek Goddess of the Moon and Wilderness who protects womyn, girls and animals. Imbolc is a time of dedication to spirituality and we do that together as sisters.
For this ceremony, we wear all white clothing and a head wreath/haku lei of greenery and/or flowers. Please bring a white candle in a glass jar that has been decorated for your dedication. This candle will continue the energy throughout the year. There are quite a few preparation details that womyn will need in advance of the ritual. Please RSVP by February 1, 2018. Looking forward to dancing in the New Year of Dedication with you.
