Banish and Burn Community Ceremony

If Your Year Has been Hard then You Need to Be Here.


Our community has been participating in the Banish and Burn Ceremony for over eleven years.


For this is the time where we collectively get clear on what we need to shake off, shake loose, and cast into the sacred flames.


Whatever you are ready to DROP, PUT DOWN, and WALK AWAY from goes into the fire – we banish it by burning it up.


Banishing describes the magical act of removing what is no longer needed in one’s life and fire has long been the choice element to create this kind of alchemy.


Every year I gather the ingredients – woods, herbs, libations, to create a sacred fire and then I write my own petition stating clearly what I am ready to let go of, and then offer it up to the bright flames.


It is simple and powerful magic – my favorite combination. This ceremony includes a banishing blessing that is sent out to all participants.


We are almost ready to journey fresh into a New Year, but before we do there is still one more piece of work to be done, one more load to be set down for good.


It is time to Banish and Burn.

The Banish and Burn Community Altar is currently closed and will open again in December 2024
