The Cosmic Walk is a ritual of bringing our knowledge of the 14-billion-year Universe process of evolution and creation unfolding from our heads to our hearts. The purpose of the Cosmic Walk Ritual is to awaken a deeper consciousness in the human of the amazing beauty and age of the unfolding life process of the Universe and to evoke a sense of mystery, awe, and reverence in the person who participates in this ritual. If you would like to serve as the "walker" of the spiral or a reader, please arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of the ritual to receive instructions. After the ritual, time will be allocated for a facilitated small group, large group, and private reflection and processing of the sacred universe story, how it impacts our lives and shapes our worldview, and what commitments we want to make as a result.

The guided ritual will be facilitated by Sister Alison McCrary. Sister Alison McCrary, SFCC is a Catholic nun, public speaker, social justice attorney, Executive Director of the National Police Accountability Project, and a Spiritual Advisor on Louisiana’s death row. She works on issues related to criminal justice reform, immigrant rights, international human rights, cultural preservation, voting rights, disaster recovery, housing rights, and provides support to various social justice movements and organizations locally, nationally, and internationally.
