Precious Seeds from Voices of Wisdom

Sacred Fire Greensboro, NC (USA) recently hosted Sacred Fire Foundation’s Voices of Wisdom, which featured two respected women elders, Pahan Pte San Win (Lakota, Cree & Metis) and Diane Longboat (Mohawk). The teachings and the overall experience touched many attendees deeply. Fresh seeds of healing and inspiration are now available to be nurtured by regional Sacred Fire communities. Check out this photo album to get a feel for the day.

Taking Time to Grow Ourselves

There is such richness when we are witnessed and supported by community, as we learn and grow into what it is to be human, through the various stages of life. Sometimes community comes in the form of a pop-up “village,” during a profound time spent together over several days.

Gift yourself with one of the following opportunities to take some time “out of time” to remember and rediscover something essential about yourself. See the Sparks (events) section below for a list of upcoming Men’s and Women’s annual gatherings.

Sacred Emergence, which supports initiation into adulthood for young women, will take place July 26-August 2. Applications are due by February 15, 2020.

Two Fire Events…on Your Journey to Mexico!

Just as autumn in the Northern Hemisphere still graces us with a rich tapestry of colors, harvest festivals, and hot apple cider, there are many Sacred Fire events still to be enjoyed before the end of the year! On December 7, 2019, the Tepoztlán, Morelos (Mexico) community will host Fire Speaks, which is connected to a special annual Protection Ritual for the local community.

The 7th annual Prosperity Ritual Harvest will also take place in Tepoztlán, on December 12. Why not make a wonderful week of it in this very special community and attend both?! Contact Ana Cortes for details.

The Spirit of Fire

We’re surrounded by media telling us that times are grim, and the future looks bleak. But a quick look at history shows us this is nothing new. Human beings have always been tested, individually and in community, by tragedy and challenge.

We so easily get lost or confused. Keeping our connection to our purpose and our vision can be difficult as we navigate the landscapes of our lives.

Throughout time, human communities have turned to Fire for heat, connection, light, enlightenment and guidance.

Fire Speaks offers a unique opportunity specially designed for us and the times in which we live. We are living through times of great change. As has happened in the past in cultures around the world, the Spirit of Fire has selected a person to serve an oracle, so that the people of our culture can reconnect and find guidance. This is truly a rare and precious phenomenon, and it’s available to us right now.

Learn more about Fire Speaks and the journey of Don David Wiley, who serves as the oracle for the Spirit of Fire, in our new video.
