A CommUNITY Vigil

As we face this time of collective loss and mourning, we come together as a global community. We invite you to join us for a special ritual of remembrance, keeping vigil for all the lives and loves that we have lost in 2020. Let us honor our past, embrace our present, and anticipate our future in a spirit of unity and co-creation.

Beatrice and Victoria invite you to participate in a ritual of music, dance, poetry, prayer, and meditation, honoring our collective and individual losses. They will be joined by performing artists from around the globe, whose contributions symbolize the power of art to unify and heal a hurting world. The ceremony will begin and end with light – representing our shared flame of life. Moments of music and spoken word will alternate with times of silent prayer and meditation.  Everyone will be invited to name their personal losses and participate in embodied practices for grief healing. All are welcome.

Please bring a candle and a significant memento or personal artifact representing a loss or losses you have experienced this year.
