The high desert land of the Mesa Life Project, a Colorado (USA) intentional community being fostered by Sacred Fire community members, was threatened by wildfires in the late summer of 2018. There was a gift within the challenge, beautifully captured in this post by community leader Deanna Jenné.
Grandfather Fire is our friend, our common heart, our warmth in the night, our cook for our food. He brings us together in surprising ways to accomplish the work of heart.

Thank you, Grandfather, for your helping us strengthen our connections!
