These ceremonies will be multi-cultural and our hope is that all belief systems will join as one and share in each others' ceremonies to heal through giving love and gratitude to Mother Earth. If your group wants to share a ceremony, song, dance or prayer, please come out or email us.
There will be a sacred fire burning non-stop throughout the day and night of the ceremony, we invite you to come and drop your prayers for healing, peace, love and harmony into the fire, into the very web of life, healing our environment, our Mother Earth and our selves.
