New Addition – Participant Drawing for Gift Certificate from Mori Ink!

Mori Ink has donated a $50 gift certificate for tattooing, piercing or makeup.  All participants that have met the challenge of raising $108 by midnight on Wednesday, December 18th will automatically be entered into the drawing.  Please let me know if you need ideas for meeting the challenge.  We want to see each and everyone of you Shine a Light!

Your Efforts Turned into Action!

I have posted a power point slide presentation on the website that shares where the money went last year and the proposals for where it will go this year.  I hope you’ll take the time to read through it and see the great work our event will support.

What Should I bring to the event?  And when should I get there?

Please bring a yoga mat and a full water bottle. Shine a Light is a zero waste event so we won’t have cups.  There will be water dispensers for easy refills. There will be a candle placed in front of your mat.  You are welcome to take this home after the event. The doors will open at 5pm.  The event will begin at 6pm.  Arrive early enough for you to get store your belongings, find a space you like for your mat and settle in.

Kirtan – The Sound Check was Fabulous!

Would you like to know the mantras before you arrive on December 20th? Laura Christine and I met at AHS yesterday for a sound check, and Laura’s gift is an amazing addition to Shine a Light.  Laura has provided us with tracks of the music for those that would like to hear it early.

Thank you again for stepping in and choosing to Shine a Light!
