Join the Cushion Crawl - Fall 2018



Our New Year's Fire Ceremony

December 24, 2017

 Modern ŌM ended the year with an incredibly cool meditation and ceremony for our global and local community. On December 31st at 4PM (EST) Modern ŌM hold a fire ceremony on the beach to release 1,000 intentions into the universe. 

In 2017, 800+ intentions were collected and posted on our Wall of Intention from our Festival and our Concept Store... they carry the collective energy of a thousand individuals, and cover every aspect of life: from money, to forgiveness, to marriage proposals, to expressions of universal love. Powerful.

Our Wall of Intention, with people writing intentions

We were lucky to have Prashant Patel of the Ancient Yoga Academy in town from Singapore to lead the ceremony, and to have support from NAMO Gallery in organizing this special event. 

The ceremony will take place at South Point Beach in Miami from 4 - 6pm EST on December 31st, 2017. Prashant will lead practice, where he will chant a mantra 1188 times to release our community's intentions into flames, to burn into the universe.

Instructions and Preparation:

Since this is a sacred ceremony, there are (recommended) guidelines) for you to receive the full energetic benefit of participation (both in-person and social media participants):

  • Eat vegan and don't drink alcohol for 24 hours
  • Wear all white, or white top
  • Focus on your breath during the chanting
  • Please no chatting, talking, laughing, while chanting is in process
  • You can repeat chant (mentally) if you are seated around Prashant

Try to keep your attention focused on the present moment, the ritual.
