Unity of North Kitsap
will conduct its annual Burning Bowl and White Stone Ceremonies at 11 a.m. on Dec. 31.
These annual ceremonies are open to anyone who wants to begin the new year free from past limitations as well as set an intention to move into 2018 living the highest and best life possible.
The Burning Bowl ritual helps individuals release past hurts, grudges, resentments and regrets that may be restricting their spiritual journey. Participants write their issue on a piece of paper which is folded and held for a moment of quiet meditation before being placed in the burning bowl.
The White Stone ceremony is based on scripture (Revelation 2:17) and includes a period of contemplation for the discernment of a word or name which represents the changes one wishes to make or what they wish to experience going forward. These are written on a white stone imported from Jerusalem and kept by the participant as a personal reminder of our freedom from the past and our intention for the New Year.
Unity of North Kitsap meets at the Suquamish United Church of Christ, 18732 Division Ave., NE, Suquamish.
