30 Dec Burning Bowl ceremony
Timing a burning ceremony on the birth of a new year is symbolic to leave all behind and start fresh.
Fire is portrayed as a powerful symbol of wisdom, knowledge, passion, and purification.
Burning ceremonies have been used historically in many religious traditions and adopted for spiritual practices as a way of releasing the past, negativity, old resentments, hurt, grudges, regrets, or suffering, and to focus on what is more significant to us.
Native Americans have a burden basket or worry basket. While their tradition does not burn their basket, it was a place to deposit worries so that the house would be peaceful and conversations would not be burdened with worries.
