The application deadline for the 2020 Sacred Emergence is February 15.

Although the Sacred Emergence Women’s Initiation Council accepts applications year round, to be considered for the 2020 initiation, we must receive your application by February 15th. If we receive your application after this date, we will put you on the list for consideration in 2021.

IMPORTANT: If you are a young woman close to the cutoff age of 25 and want to apply for initiation, you must meet this deadline. If we have not received your application by February 15, you will have missed your opportunity.

Sacred Fire Across the World: Always at Home by the Fire

by Lawrence Messerman, Sacred Fire Executive Director

It has been said that home is where the heart is. It could as easily be said that home is where the hearth is. In my role as Sacred Fire Executive Director, I travel often: within the United States, to Mexico, Canada and Europe.

Always, there is the Fire at the center, supporting the circle of people gathered in that place, whether for organizational leadership meetings, public events like Fire Speaks, or LifeWays programs that support women, men and emerging adults in their journey through life.

Time and time again, I find reaffirmation of the importance of our work in the face of a world that seems to be growing more cold and polarized. No matter how modest in size we may yet be, Sacred Fire is steadily spreading, helping to bring the transformative and connective gift of Fire to the world.

I am delighted to report that 2019 has been a very full, successful year. This is the result of focus, dedication and countless hours of volunteer work.

You’re Not In This Alone: Come to Our Women’s and Men’s Gatherings!

Amidst all of the hustle and bustle and busy-ness of your life, are you feeling alone? Is your heart and spirit longing for a deeper purpose, a more rewarding connection with others?

Around the world and throughout the ages, women have gathered with women, and men have gathered with men over shared activities or a big job well-done…when there is a need to be listened to, acknowledged, encouraged…when there are life events to be celebrated…when big changes are happening in the world, and fresh perspective is needed.

Sacred Fire provides multi-day opportunities for women and men to gather in beautiful locations, led by respected tradition-holders with important wisdom to impart. We invite you to attend Ukalái (Annual Gathering of Women) and Ukilái (Annual Gathering of Men).

Even if you’ve attended these gatherings before, consider gifting yourself or your partner this experience regularly; indeed, annually. Then, return renewed and inspired to tackle the day-to-day challenges that life presents to you.
