Sixth Annual Ceremony of Light

Formerly known as the ‘Fire of Hope’, Ceremony of Light offers a message of healing and love.
Emerging stronger and closer, we leave behind the dross as we embrace 2022 with the power of Oneness. Light represents all of the very best that we are and can be, and as Beings of Light we create our world.

Join us in a New Year’s ceremony to honor & affirm our commitment to make 2022 everything we could hope for, and Be a community of Oneness, Peace, Hope & Truth.
