We’ve created a graphic flier for printing or sharing electronically, so you can share at fires or post on bulletin boards around town:
On each of these pages, you’ll find:
- 2 downloadable files for printing (1-per-page or 2-per-page). These are larger files with higher resolution to ensure good print quality.
- 2 downloadable files for sharing online (700px wide and 600px wide). These are smaller files designed to work in a newsletter or email.
Sharing by E-newsletter or Email
- If you’re creating an e-newsletter or an email, you can use one of the downloadable files labeled “Newsletters” (following the links under Fliers above) to keep the attachment size small.
- At a loss for words? Feel free to use the information from any of our materials and add your own experiences, understandings and inspiration.

Tell Your Friends
Usually, the people we want to share our inspiration with the most are the friends we run into every day at work, at the café or in the market. But what do we say? Having wrestled with the same issues ourselves, here are some ideas to get you going. First off, there’s no need to sell anyone on anything. Fire is as natural to being human as the air we breathe and the water we drink. We have a kindred connection to them, which is why we refer to Fire as Grandfather. Focus on your direct experience and what coming to the fire has done for you. You might talk about the need we all have to share our hearts with each other and how the Sacred Fire Community provides this through monthly community fires. And you might talk about the wonder of the Fire Speaks experience.
And if you’re looking for a way to tell people the story of how Grandfather Fire first appeared to David Wiley, you can find his telling of the story here.
If you have any questions or comments, we’d love to hear from you »
Thank you again for your interest in spreading the warmth, light and transformation of Sacred Fire out into our world!
