A FIRE CIRCLE RETREAT CELEBRATING LIFE AND SPIRIT
Next year’s dates are July 9-13, 2013
Registration should open in late January or early February.
SpiritFire Festival is a five day (Wednesday – Sunday) retreat-style gathering held in New Lebanon, NY. We celebrate life and spirit through the pathways of music, movement, voice, Seva (or service), and the Mysteries, focused in the medium of the sacred all-night fire circle.
During the day, you can explore many types of spiritual and artistic practices via workshops, affinity groups, jams, or just hanging out with new friends in the community/merchant circle. When the sun goes down, fire-spinners light up the night to the sounds of amazing drumming, preparing for intentional fire-lighting ceremonies that begin an all-night celebration of the sacred in each of us.
SpiritFire provides a nourishing and inspirational environment in which drummers, dancers, chanters, poets, visual artists, and seekers of all types can both honor individual diversity yet share a common and powerful bond at the fire. Each night we acknowledge our connections in the spirit of joyous celebration, deep listening, infectious groove, and ecstatic trance! SpiritFire Festival is located near New Lebanon, New York, towards the border between Massachusetts and New York. We are 10 miles west of Pittsfield, MA; 140 miles west of Boston, MA; 30 miles east of Albany, NY; 145 miles north of New York City.
