The fall brings change to the world.

Leaves turn,
days are shorter,
the Jewish High Holy Days
and Celtic New Year are near,
the world becomes introspective.

We will have our own evenings of Reflection around the Bonfire.

We will share our stories of change and miracles;
sing of seasons, remembering and change;
and meditate on our place in the world.

We will share our voices
around the fire into the night, or just listen,
as we watch the flames dance!


Please bring food and drinks for yourself and some to share.
Also bring friends, your miracle stories, and musical instruments.


Yeashore will provide chocolate, Kosher marshmallows and crackers for S'mores!!

You are invited to bring something to burn
as a way of letting go of it.

Join us at the free "Ctrl + Alt + Del: Tashlique" prior to our San Francisco Bonfire of Reflection!

Reset your system with our modern spin on a 600-year-old Rosh Hashanah ritual called tashlich. This custom of ridding ourselves of all our bad vuggum (karma) from the previous year and getting a fresh start for the new one is traditionally enacted by tossing bread into the ocean. Join us by the shore at Ocean Beach for a brief, engaging ritual and joyful noise accompaniment from shofar blowers, bag pipers, members of the Jazz Mafia and the Ministers of Sound of the Saint John Will-I-Am Coltrane African Orthodox Church. Bring stale bread to share and a shofar, if you have one, to blow along with some of San Francisco's finest players. Enjoy our twist on the traditional sweet with s'mores roasted over a bonfire.
