Join us as we welcome the New Year, contemplate what we resolve to do better in 2012 and say farewell to those regrets and errors that are holding us back.
In Fire Communion, we write on slips of flash paper those things that no longer serve us and we symbolically release or let them go by burning them in the fire. White stones are an opportunity to set a new intention (something we would like to develop in ourselves, e.g., more patience) for the coming year. People note their intention with a word or two written on the stone and often keep the stone in a prominent place as a reminder of what they would like to accomplish. This inter-generational service appeals to many different ages. This is what we did last year. Details may change, but the theme remains!
