What’s a burning bowl?
A burning bowl ceremony, traditionally, is a physical act that is performed by burning old things that do not align with you anymore. Spiritually, It’s a symbolic release; letting go of anything that no longer serves you, placing closure and thanking it for its lessons and moving forward with grace. This is usually performed outdoors by many cultures in various ways during spiritual services, ceremonies or family gatherings.
Lymarie, a current board member, will be sharing this longtime tradition that stemmed from her connections with her Caribbean spiritual Taino roots. This is a personal practice that has been passed on to her from many generations of her Puerto Rican family and friends.
2020 has been a hard year for this world and it’s time to kick it to the curb! Bye bye 2020 , Hello 2021!
