Weaving together various spiritual, musical, and heart-based traditions, Jennifer Berezan, Vicki Noble, and Michael Pooley will facilitate a very special New Year Celebration devoted to personal and spiritual harmony, healing of mother earth, and world peace and harmony. At this one-of-a-kind event, you will participate in a Sacred Circle Puja (tantric ritual), explore the healing ecstasy of sound and chant, learn the Dakini Mandala Invocation (an ancient Tibetan & Indian ritual to invoke goddess energy and wisdom), and immerse in devotional singing, sacred movement, and energetic awakening. The evening will conclude with everyone participating in the sacred song and chant Praises for for the World, during which guests and friends will read prayers for peace, Vicki will offer a song of realization and prayer, Archana Samantha Beers will perform a sacred Goddess dance while Eric Schnieder recites Rumi poetry, and more.

Together, let's open our hearts and connect deeply with our selves and others, expand our personal and social awareness, call forth goddess energy and wisdom to help heal our planet and all its inhabitants, and awaken our potential for healing and transformation in each moment. Feel free to bring sacred objects for our group altar... and of course, your open heart and mind. Reservations are strongly encouraged.We look forward to seeing you there!
