Those of all backgrounds and faiths are welcome to attend this spiritual, but non-religious ritual event led by special guest, Rabbi Yaakov ‘Trek’ Reef.
During this season of darkness, we invite you to tend your inner light and shine it out into the world and wider universe. Join us for a ritual circle to honor the dark of the New Moon and the light of the 6th night of Hanukkah. This circle will include stories, chanting, a meditation, intention practice for our inner light and candle lighting; all designed to join our inner fires and to cultivate the light of awareness in the service of shaping a more loving, compassionate, and just world.
No prior experience or knowledge required.
