The Divine Mystery of Corn

On August 25, 2018, at a Fire Speaks event in New Freedom, Pennsylvania, USA, we will request Grandfather Fire to tell us the Sacred Story of Corn. We hope this post intrigues you and inspires you to join us for this unique opportunity.

Sacred stories are passed down through the ages to help humans remember timeless wisdom that promotes living in a heart-centered way. Such ancient lessons speak to the danger of allowing ego-mind to lead the way, and highlight the acts of courage and compassion that restore balance, harmony, and joy. Today’s conversations about social, environmental, and political issues would do well to take into consideration the teachings contained in these sacred stories.

Many of the original traditions from the Americas tell sacred stories about how Corn came to the people and how to engage with it for the benefit of society. Whether we take these stories as fact or as parable, such tales contain valuable lessons that guide us to stay on track, and to live in a heart-centered way, recognizing that our very survival is deeply bound to the health of the living world.

Prosperity Ritual enters its fifth year

The sacred story of Corn continues to unfold into our time. On June 13th, Sacred Fire will be joining others in a ritual corn planting at Casa Xiuhtecuhtli in Tepoztlán, Mexico. Five years ago, we were given this prosperity ritual to support us in our work.

Planting is a profound affirmation of life—especially in a time of turmoil and imbalance. You can join us in that affirmation by lighting a candle on June 13th starting at 10 AM Eastern. Our prayer: May we have the resources we need to bring Heart and Fire more fully into the world. Thank you!
