Start 2018 from a place of Clarity, Authenticity and Light
Enter 2018 from a centered place of peace. Release the energies of the last year, and set a harmonious tone for the year to come. Sacred Space will be held from 7 to 9 pm in the Sanctuary of the UUCF on Monday, January 1st.
Attendees are invited to move through the Elements, releasing the shadows of 2017 as they go. Elemental Guides will be available at each Quarter to offer a way to move into the energy of a new year. End your Purification journey with a walk to the center of the Labyrinth to receive any messages for the new year.
This ritual is an opportunity to move through Sacred Space. As such, there is no set start and finish time–it does not have a formal ritual structure. Your journey will be self-guided. We will hold the space open from 7 to 9 pm, and you should expect to spend somewhere between a half hour to an hour on your journey.
Please remember that this is a very popular ritual. There is a single path to follow, so at ‘peak’ times (generally around 8 pm), there can be a line. Please plan to arrive early or after the ‘peak’ and please be patient with the process of the people around you.
All are welcome to attend. Silence is held for the duration of the ritual, so please use your judgement about appropriateness for children. A Children’s Ritual is available at the same time that is not dependent on silence 🙂
