We're talking about Imbolc rituals and history this week on The How to Be Awesome Podcast. The sky is growing lighter and signs of life are appearing in nature. How will you celebrate this point in the wheel of the year?
We proudly host our podcast with Buzzsprout.
This week, Louise is actually cooking, and it's a super simple and delicious Leek & Asparagus Orzotto. Renee's making stuff on crescent rolls dough. You gotta try Breakfast Pizza & Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels.
Then they're talking about the cross-quarter day, Imbolc. They go over the history and traditions of Imbolc or Brigid's Day and dig into some of the other February festivals including Groundhog Day and Lupercalia. If you're desperate for something to celebrate in the dead of winter, Imbolc is the festival for you. Louise is planning to update her altar, and Renee will be doing an intention setting ritual.
Then Louise is learning to let go of her lashes while Renee is nipping imposter syndrome in the bud. Plus Renee recommends You Were Born for This by Chani Nicholas, and Louise is saying "never again" to wired bras.
