New Year’s Eve Burning Bowl

Sunday, December 31, 7:00-9:00 pm in the Sanctuary

It’s time to let go! Let go of all those concerns from your past year. Burn them up. Release them. Attend the New Year’s Eve Burning Bowl service and enter the new year without the baggage of the old one. Then create what you want for the New Year. Intend the new and write it down, and it will be sent to you in 2018 to remind you of the new creation you are bringing forth.
