Over the past two years, Sacred Fire Community Lifeways has brought 12 Life Cycle Living presentations to the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada. Thank you to all who have attended and contributed so many thoughtful ideas infused with energy and heart! What you have given us is rich and full of life.
Soon our team will use all this juicy data to sift, sort, debate and dream into a 5-YEAR plan for new Lifeways offerings! If you came to a Life Cycle Living presentation, you know that re-discovering this experiential way of living in alignment with the cycles of nature and human life can be an exciting journey of learning.
We will update you on how our meetings go and how we intend to see this vision through for generations to come. Wish us luck and good planning!!Read More
Sacred initiation is a doorway for a young person to become an adult, plain and simple. If done in a good way, a person participating in this ritual will be truly transformed; they will never go back to being the same person they were before. What is it like for an initiate, moving forward into the world as an adult? In 2017, Cassandra Starks of Grand Junction, Colorado, USA stepped through the doorway of Sacred Fire Community’s young women’s initiation, called Sacred Emergence. She is now entering yet another phase of life: she is recently married and is becoming a mother! We caught up with her to ask a few questions.
Sacred Fire: Cassandra, who were you before initiation and what have you become because of it?
Cassandra: I don’t think much changed visibly on the outside after Sacred Emergence. I wore the same clothes, my hair, eyes and skin color were still the same. I didn’t lose or gain any weight. I looked the same. And yet I felt completely different. Something drastic within myself had shifted. I finally felt connected to myself in a way that I never was before. I had gained greater understanding of my values, gifts and passions, an incredible appreciation of what it truly means to be a woman, and was empowered by my emotions and feelings, rather than simply trying to avoid them. Showered with the love, support, wisdom and guidance of women, I began to grow a new understanding of myself and how to be in relationship with others and with the world as a human being.Read More
