About the Event 

Come together around Gathering Stones and hold space as a group in silence. Bear witness our individual and collective experience of this past year and to where and what we are now – in this moment. In this lightly guided meditation, words will be used sparingly, like rain drops falling into a pond. Let your worries and cares from this past year flow into the sea.
