Burn and Banish Community Ceremony

The Banish and Burn Community Ceremony for 2022 will open in late December 2021
This is the tenth year I have hosted the Banish and Burn community ceremony and I hope all of you will join me in walking into 2022 fresh and clean!

Now what has this year in all of its glory and all of its shadow brought to you?

What joys and moments of bliss did you experience?

What sorrows and heart sores did you come up against?

Perhaps the most important question of all: what are you ready to release as we come to the closing of the year's doors?

It is good to realize that as one year ends and another is born we enter into a liminal time where change and magic are afoot.

This is the community ceremony 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.

I have performed this ceremony personally for over 14 years. 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 open the doors into '22, 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 2020
