Fire Ceremony

Fire has historically symbolized purification and transformation. All ceremonies are as meaningful and powerful as our faith and sincerity when we participate in them. In this ancient and revered vedic ceremony we light the fire and chant two sacred mantras together, each one repeated seven times.  more information


In this ceremony we offer ourselves to God and ask for help and guidance in areas of challenge.  Ask God to help change those traits and behaviors that are obstacles to spiritual growth. Deep, simple and heart opening, the Purification Ceremony can bring profound peace and lasting change to our troubled hearts and lives. A brief period of meditation follows. more information

All are welcome to attend.
Newcomers are encouraged to come and experience the opportunity for personal self offering and the support of others in the process. We are happy to answer any questions.
