Beginning Anew - Start the New Year With Inner Peace

This Meetup is past

9 people went


Start off 2014 with inner renewal and hope. The annual Beginning Anew Ceremony is a powerful and intensely emotional experience. It allows participants to look deeply within their hearts, share their feelings about others and events, and to let go of personal obstacles in order to awaken to peace and inner balance.

There will be 4 main phases: 1) mindful incense offering, 2) sharing regrets, 3) expressing hurt, 4) sharing a difficulty & asking for support. Sharing is purely voluntary but listening is equally a powerful experience. After each phase, a short meditation and loving kindness prayer will be given the participants. Lead by Senpai Daishin.

We offer complimentary meditation lessons for those new to buddhism. Just arrive 15 min. before 10 a.m. and ask the peron at the front desk for the mini lesson.
