Event Type: Retreat and Renewal for Women, Men and Young Adults
When I attended Ukalái, Sacred Fire’s Annual Gathering of Women, I found it a safe place to be vulnerable, to let things come up. Over the previous years, sparked by a particular renewed friendship with a woman I’d known in youth, I had slowly been opening up to the idea of community, accepting the possibility that I didn’t have to live my life as a loner and could be part of a supportive circle.
At Ukalái, a big revelation to me was how universal feminine trauma actually is. I also realized how far I’d already come in my personal healing over six decades of life.
The facilitators Sherry Boatright and Annie King held a safe and beautiful container. And the setting at the Blue Deer Center, a sacred place I had already come to love, helped contain our work as well.
We are all so different. Yet, something about our innate nature as men and as women helps us to sort out who we are and how we’re to be in this beautiful world.
“(The gathering) touched something very deep in me, a place that I didn’t even know needed exploring. Long-held assumptions were shattered, opening new channels of self-awareness and compassion.”
“Moving forward from my time spent at the gathering, I feel change. Simple, effective, positive change. Change that I was in need of. Yes, moving forward in life, sure-footed, with an openness of heart.”
Is it time for you to give yourself, your family and the world the gift of attending Ukalái: An Annual Gathering of Women or Ukilái: An Annual Gathering of Men”.
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.Read More
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.Read More
