The intention of the Temple Burn Ceremony is to provide our community an opportunity to gather together around the Temple to reflect, release, and renew. The 2020 Temple artists Sylvia Lisse and Renzo Verbeck have entrusted Simeone “Eno” Scaramozzino and his MysticVerse team with the privilege to design and deliver the 2020 Temple Burn experience, written and directed by Simeone.
On Sunday, September 6, 2020 at 8pm PDT, the Temple Burn Ceremony will be a 22-minute virtual “burn” event intended to inspire connection, contemplation, catharsis, regeneration, and transformation in a year when these are needed most.
By providing this experience in the virtual Multiverse, we are able to defy space-time constraints and share in this collective catharsis in a new and innovative way. In keeping with tradition, the moments of the actual Burn will be silent.
Burn to Transform
Leading up to the ceremony, the Burn to Transform program is provided to help people prepare, connect, and integrate the meaning and the deeper sense of the fire ceremony. The program features pre-recorded and live sessions offered by healers, speakers, visionaries, and artists sharing their gifts to facilitate healing and transformation.
As part of the program, composer and pianist Murray Hidary, who performs the live piano headphone experience held at the Temple each year, will stream a live performance on September 6th at 7pm PDT before the ceremony and at 8:30pm PDT after the ceremony.
In addition, Zendo Project will be offering peer support – before, during, and after the ceremony.
