Magna Mater

Event source: Basic Calendar Events

The six days of the feast of Magna Mater (Great Mother) are primarily an agricultural festival, in which the first grain would be sown in the fields, and the first gardens would be planted. The Great Mother Earth, and her role as the mother of all beings was celebrated in these days, even as farmers busied themselves with getting their fields furrowed and ready for planting.

During these days, make bread, work in your garden, set up a box of herbs in a windowsill, start composting, and walk in the woods. Make an effort, alone and in group ritual, to connect with the natural world and become aware of the web of interdependence that binds you to your local environment and community.
