Have you sat around a Sacred Fire community fire? Many of you probably have, since they’re held every month in over 40 locations in 7 countries. Erin Everett has attended quite a few, and in her third podcast in this “Firekeepers, I Love You” series, she shares her appreciation to these dedicated volunteer space-holders training in the time-honored ways of Fire Work. They make this sacrifice so that we can gather around the fire as human beings have always done—to share, laugh, and to “think together” about our lives and our personal and shared challenges, supported by the timeless medicine of Fire.Read More

Part 1: Firekeepers, I love you for valuing relationships...
This Valentine’s Day was the perfect day to express our love for the most important people in our lives. For those of us who spend time around the sacred Fire in lands near and far, our local Firekeeper is often at the top of that list! Where would we be without the supportive nest of community? Somehow our lives are mysteriously enriched and deepened by the dance with other people and the sacred world at our local Sacred Fire community fires, men’s fires and women’s fires. This is only possible because of our Firekeepers: they hold the space so well.
How do they do this monumental task, month after month? How can we possibly thank them enough?
In this podcast, Fire veteran Erin Everett, who has been attending Fires and observing Firekeepers since she was in her 20s, shares the Firekeeper-love in this first of nine “love letters” to the 62 Firekeepers (and growing) who have dedicated their lives, time and learning to holding space for the fears, hopes, grief, love, laughter and transformation of their communities.
