Annual Burning Bowl Service

A ritual to bid farewell to the old year, and welcome the new, reflecting on and releasing the areas of our lives that no longer serve our highest good. We look forward, creating goals that will advance our journey in the coming year. A portion of the service will be conducted outside. We will continue collecting food donations for Food For Thought throughout the month. Youth programming and childcare are available, and conversation and refreshments follow the service. Everyone is welcome!

Special Saturday Earth-Centered Service: Winter Solstice Celebration

Inanna’s Seven Gates: Embark on an inward journey with Inanna, Queen of Heaven and Earth and Her sister Ereshkigal, Queen of Shadows, descending into the depths of our own psyche to shed the residue and trappings of our lives which no longer serve us. Find within ourselves the water of life – love and compassion – and arise through its transformative magick. Everyone is welcome!

Yuletide Traditions: Ancient Roots, Modern Relevance

We’ll explore the history of yuletide traditions, how yule is celebrated across many religions, and the joy and meaning that yule traditions and stories hold for us our modern times. As part of our holiday “Love Notes and Cookies” project, Cyndia Caravaggio will lead a Love Notes writing opportunity during and after the service. We’ll also be collecting food donations for Food For Thought. Youth programming and childcare are available, and conversation and refreshments follow the service. Everyone is welcome!
