36 Hours of Ceremony - Galactic Alignment
Beginning under the open sky at the sacred fire, in Estancia, New Mexico, at sunset, Thursday December 20, ending at noon on Saturday December 22. The Main Ceremony and activities will take place at 3pm on December 21st and will be broadcast through The Shift Network along with dozens of other events around the world.
Together with Spiritual Elders and community members, we will start the sacred fire with prayers to close the old age at sunset December 20. We will require the assistance of many volunteers to tend the sacred fire throughout the 36 hour event, organized into teams of people in prayer that will be relieved every two hours. Rare Earth Foundation has provided us with ashes from Sacred Ceremonial fires from around the globe, which we will use to unite our prayer with the people of the world!
Sunset December 20th at 4:00pm: First Ceremony
We will light the sacred fire for the Gathering, and it will be kept in prayer for the 36 hours of Ceremony. This Gathering is a time to don your ceremonial regalia if you wish, and definitely bring your sacred objects and your instruments! We will unite in prayer in order to send off the old energies and close out this 26,000 year cycle with thanksgiving and release of that which no longer serves our higher good. Pipe ceremony for those wishing to unite in further prayer.
People in the circle tending the sacred fire will be instructed on the details of this ceremony. Please contact [masked] and indicate also at Meetup, at Urban Shaman.
