Puja is the act of showing reverence to a god, a spirit, or another aspect of the divine through invocations, prayers, songs, and rituals. An essential part of puja is making a spiritual connection with the divine. Most often that contact is facilitated through an object: an element of nature, a sculpture, a vessel, a painting, or a picture. This icon is not the deity itself; rather, it is believed to be filled with the deity's cosmic energy. It is a focal point for honoring and communicating with the god. The objects allow the devotee to experience direct communication with his or her gods. Puja is an extraordinary sensory experience for the attendees with the colors, scents, sounds, and palpable energy.
For this puja we will be working with Gaia, the Earth Mother revered in the ancient Greek tradition. We invite you to come and connect with her to offer healing and gratitude to the Earth and receive the blessings of abundance and connectivity that she offers in return.
