A Note From Linda
Greetings Friends, and a very Happy New Year to all!
This Sunday we will welcome the New Year in three distinct ways. We will:
Release: We will spend some time in contemplation, then write down those things that we want to let go and throw them out. We can't use fire in the Chamber for a burning bowl ceremony, but we can simulate a way to let this old baggage go!
Create: We will go back into silence listening for our aims, wishes, and intentions for our new year. We will write those down and take them home with us.
Consecrate: In contemplation a final time, we will listen for the word or phrase that will guide us throughout this year in bringing into fruition our aims, wishes, and intentions; then we will consecrate that word or phrase on a white stone.
I can't wait to see you and begin our New Year together! With so much love, Linda
