Come join us in ringing in the New Year with 108 rings on the bell, a fire/purification ceremony, meditation and chanting. Bring forward your intentions for what to let go of in your life, and enjoy an evening with sangha in ritual and connection.
This year the New Year's Ceremony is co-hosted by Bellingham Insight Meditation Society. We'll start with a 45 minutes Insight sit at 7pm. Thank you BIMS for teaming up with us this year.
Come a little early to get settled - this is one of our most popular events of the year.
7:00pm Vipassana Sit (sitting meditation)

We'll also be burning any name cards from the altar of people who've died in the last year. If you have any of these from your home altar you are invited to bring them.
