On Thursday night, December 31st, the Chapel Hill Zen Center will welcome the New Year with two periods of meditation at 8:00 and 8:50pm followed by the Bodhisattva Ceremony at 9:20pm, and a Fire Ceremony at 9:50pm followed by refreshments.
For the Fire Ceremony, we write down habits and tendencies, difficult states of mind, tangled aspects of relationships, and so on, that we would like to release. We will have an outdoor fire to burn our papers along with the name cards from Memorial Services held during the past year and incense stubs that have accumulated throughout year. Everyone is welcome for the whole program or to any part of it. The program will end with pot-luck refreshments with beverages provided.
