On Saturday evening, May 30, during the height of the chaos in Minneapolis, Burton was called to start a prayer vigil. As a spiritual person who practices the Catholic faith, she is inviting people of all faiths and beliefs to continue to join her and strengthen this effort, by adding this vigil into their personal spiritual practice. Below is Burton’s explanation of the Spiritual Dome and how you can get involved.

This prayer vigil is in the form of a Spiritual Dome originating over the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. It is a space made up of prayers and intentions that provides waves of positive change, resources, strength, strategy, and lights of active hope. Along with other ways we spiritually engage, the Spiritual Dome is an added resource, helping us decide how to urgently become leaders of actionable equity.

The Spiritual Dome is thickening at its core in Minnesota so that it can continue to grow and expand to cover the world. So far, we are aware of prayers and intentions from Australia, Canada, Colombia, Germany, India, the UK and the U.S.

As a global community, we are writing a new book with an original path and new language.

This prayer vigil is a way for all to connect, reflect, reconcile, accept and shift the imprints and impact of the systemic practices of racism throughout all facets of life. You can make personal improvements by using this same approach. You can participate in strengthening the Spiritual Dome into your current personal spiritual practice. This action can be through prayer, meditation, setting intentions or practicing mantras. Keep the prayers in the back of your mind. Share and invite others to do the same. This prayer vigil will be alive for some time as there is no end date. As a society, we are at a crossroads, and the Spiritual Dome will serve as a resource that can help guide us onto a new path that will not be easy, but necessary.

Collectively, we will create a new direction that will have a long-lasting impact. We are all grieving, facing our fears and dealing with deep-seated undesired behaviors. This prayer vigil can be one of many actions we can take when we worry about what may be next, asking ourselves what we can do. Please join in-we need each other now more than ever.
