An altar is an extension of the conscious & subconscious mind, a pragmatic & personal tool for focusing our intention. A community altar seeks to find commonalities, to present visual pieces to correspond to the goals we desire to accomplish as we gather together.
Please join us as we build our community altar, infusing the altar with loving, healing, joyful energies to strengthen our sense of community, empower each other & manifest powerful transformations. Feel free to bring items to be placed on the altar for the festival, as well as any snacks or drinks you would like to share with the community.
Feel free to add names to the list for manifesting/healing energies that will be placed on the altar. The list will be offered to the fire early Sunday morning to send the love & healing energies on their way.
Community participation is encouraged. Join us as we set up the altar on Friday 5:00. Watch as it grows from boxes of items into a majestic community masterpiece. Chanting will follow altar set up. Join us as we chant our vibrations into alignment, charging ourselves from our core to radiate love out to all.
