Every year since 2011, Zenyu has held an incredibly intimate beautiful community-building Spiritual Wilderness Retreat for People of Color. Check out pictures and a synopsis from our latest Retreat!
Annual New Year’s Crystal Soup Ceremony
Every New Year’s Eve since 2011, Zenyu invites all interested folks to ring in the New Year in a sacred and delicious way! With a beautiful intention-setting ceremony, guided meditation and a purifying fire we gather together to cast away the old and invite in the transformational and (r)evolutionary energies. In the spirit of building community, we end the night with a delicious soup, created from our collective vegetable contributions. Remember that StoneSoup fable? Well, instead of a boring old stone, we substitute an energized crystal (for a more woo-woo touch). To make this nourishing and sacred brew, we invite all participants to share a single vegetable offering. It is always a beautiful night marked with deep connection!
HUG IT OUT WORK PARTY:
The Community Advisory Board of Zenyu, led by Luzviminda Uzuri “Lulu” Carpenter, organized a Gardening Work Party June 2nd, 2012. It was an event that supported one of our community partners, Hilltop Urban Gardens (H.U.G.) in Tacoma, WA. https://zenyuhealing.wordpress.com/2012/08/10/zenyus-hug-it-out-work-party-a-weed-pulling-success/
