2017 GAYLA Winter Reunion
Book your Ferry Beach experience here:
Community Ritual - Community and Connection
Join the community for a meditative ritual of sharing.
We are bound together by love and support. Our ritual will center around a ceremonial "bundle" that represents our community past, present and absent. The bundle was created during last winter’s gathering and this year we will open it, nourish it, and add to it while sharing stories, readings, song and movement. The bundle symbolically holds our hopes and aspirations, bound together as one, just as we are bound together as one in our community of love and mutual support. Expect to come away with a renewed spirit of brotherhood. All are welcome.
Bring a small, dry object from nature to contribute to the bundle. The object can be anything that has meaning and significance to you about Ferry Beach or GAYLA.
We will also have a variety of shells, beach glass and small branches from the Grove from which you may choose.
Bradley Cohen led a similar ritual at the GAYLA 36 Winter Gathering, and he has helped lead similar ceremonies at Boston Living Soulfully.
