The Baptism of Light is a ritual to welcome your newborn to this world and to bestow him with profound blessings. It is designed to reveal and establish the channel of light that exists between the earth and the cosmos. The parents, godparents, family members, and friends form a sacred circle so that the baby can be presented to the universal cosmic energy, mother earth, the four cardinal points, and to the guardians of the site. Fire, incense, water, flowers, seeds, and fruits are used in the ceremony. The guests participate in showering blessings on the baby, and the ceremony ends with an offering to the sea.
