Instead, Wes and I marked the turning of another year by holding our own burning bowl ceremony. I can't remember where I first came across the concept-maybe a reiki website or a Unitarian one. . . in any case, the idea resonated.
What do you want to leave behind you? What do you want to say goodbye to? What do you need to let go before you can move forward?
