Let the symbols present in this place guide you on your journey. The evergreens, the beeswax candles, the music – all invite our senses to awaken, to be mindful of what our souls are longing for at the deepest level. This ritual invites us to retreat for a while from the busyness and noise of life and to open ourselves to what the moment and the experience wish to teach us. It is a time to honor the mystery and the wonder of life. Today is the day that we proclaim together the reality of our shared narrative – we are all one and we are one with the entire web of life.
