As you can imagine with such short notice we are moving quickly to adjust our content and policies, contact presenters and make the changes needed to cope with our new circumstances, and we are excited to share.

We have come to understand that Fire Circle is Sacred Space, the beating heart of our community, something precious that glows brighter as it is shared. As we go about creating this space in a good way, we make a place of respect and of safety where the Drum supports the Dancers, the Dancers feed the Fire, and the Fire feeds us all. Inside this Sacred Space we step out of the ordinary and into our authentic selves.
