Year-End Letting Go Ceremony
Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014
Same event, two different times
5:30-6:45 PM (Mostly full, please consider the 8pm ceremony)
At 8021 Old NC 86 Chapel Hill, NC
Our evening together on the last day of this year will include meditation and reflection on the year.
By candlelight, we will silently reflect on the blessings that we have received over the past twelve months.
By fire, we will send off the year 2014, burning and releasing any regrets and pain.
Our local virtuoso violinist, Jennifer Curtis, will accompany the letting-go ceremony.
We will meditate and get in touch with our peaceful True Nature in readiness for the New Year.
Open to all. Children, age 7 or older, are welcome.
RSVP, with your choice of event time, would be much appreciated.

New Year's Day Celebration
11:00 am - 12:30 pm, Thursday, January 1, 2015
Come celebrate the first day of the New Year, with meditation, prayers, music, dharma messages, Temple updates, and more, followed by a delicious lunch.
Especially in honor of our Temple’s 10th anniversary year, our local sound artists, Daran Wallman and Edie Stuber, will bless our New Year through the sacred sounds of didgeridoo, crystal bowls, and vocal harmonics.
On this New Year’s Day, five practitioners (Nate, Maj-Britt, Linda, Julie, and Pete) will receive their dharma names. The naming ceremony will signify rebirth as a sincere dharma practitioner. Receiving the dharma name symbolizes the intention of deepening practice – the cultivation of true Spirit, wisdom, and mindful actions. Please join us in blessing their aspirations and commitments to a higher path.
With our new hopes and resolutions, blessings upon all of our doors into the future; we would love to greet the New Year with you. Come and join us as we welcome 2015!
