Join us around a sacred fire on Friday, August 29th. We begin with a potluck meal around sunset, then head outside to sit around a consecrated fire. There is no set agenda; only to deepen our connection to each other and the world around us and to feel the transformative nature of fire--the energy of the heart.
The element of Fire is the essence of our hearts, the source of compassion and spiritual connection. Acknowledged throughout history, Fire awakens our deepest knowing and wisdom, and enlivens our personal relationship with the Divine.
Why Fire Now?
In these times of uncertainty and rapid change, it is common to feel increasingly disconnected from ourselves, each other and the world. As the energy of transformation, Fire is a primordial healing presence in our lives. In the natural world, Fire burns away deadwood and decay, allowing forests to be reborn into lushness. Likewise, our hearts long to burn away fear and worn-out patterns, allowing us a fresh start in rebuilding life-sustaining connections.
Open to people of all spiritual affiliations or those who do not identify with a particular tradition. Please bring: A dish to share for the potluck, warm enough clothes to sit around the fire, and any stories, poems, music or jokes that you would like to share. We welcome exchange (suggested donation: $5) to help keep these fires burning. See our Pages for more background on these fires and the Sacred Fire Community that sponsors them.
