The Opening Ceremony is one of the beginning events that kicks off the week, as we gather at Transcending The Gender Box, in the parking lot. It is an event that helps recognize our five days of events, that brings Pride, Awareness, Remembrance, Empowerment, Celebration, and Support to the Transgender Community and Allies. It incorporates ritual segments from the Native American culture as we celebrate the diversity that exist in our community. This will also include a drumming circle; there will be some drums available, but you are encouraged to bring your own drum, if you own one. The opening ceremony will also include the Smudging Ceremony, which is a way to create a cleansing smoke bath that is used to purify the body, aura, energy, ceremonial/ritual space or any other space and personal articles. Smudging is performed to remove negative energy as well as for centering and healing. Our bodies and environments are not only physical but vibrate with invisible, silent energy.
