Summer is heating up!

The summer of 2019 is heating up in the best possible way and we have the gift of Grandfather Fire’s presence to thank for that. One more Fire Speaks event, to be hosted by the Concord, MA (USA) community has been added to the line-up on August 24. In addition, the precious and time-limited opportunity to receive guidance in this way will be available in Galway, Ireland June 14-16, and in Olympia, WA (USA) July 27. As important on these occasions is the truly warm-hearted, authentic and unique experience of welcome that is created by the respective host communities.

Do you feel called to a relationship with Fire?
Are you detailed oriented and organized?
Do you love to work with a variety of people worldwide?
Do you have skills or interest in getting the word out through social media and promotion?

Prosperity Ritual June 3

For a healthy community, prosperity is about far more than money in the bank. It expresses itself as the deep satisfaction of working with others on a common cause, and of seeing talents and efforts received with gratitude. It is about building relationships that develop into deep friendships, those that can weather storms even in times of need. It is also about having the wisdom and support we need to blossom fully into who we are meant to be, and in turn, to provide a way of living that ensures these opportunities will continue for the generations that follow.

On June 3rd, Sacred Fire will participate in the seventh cycle of a Prosperity Ritual, held in Tepoztlán, Mexico. Sacred Corn will be planted and tended toward harvest and sharing in the fall. Through our prayers, we hope that many can discover Sacred Fire, and be enriched by–and also enrich–our growing international community. You are invited to light a candle starting at 11 am Eastern and join us in giving thanks for the great abundance that we have already been blessed with as a community, as well as gratitude for whatever abundance that you and your loved ones have received.

The Doorway to Adulthood: Sacred Initiation in Our Twenty-first Century World

by the Sacred Fire editorial team

In our modern cultures that seem to worship eternal youth—that state of being that gives us permission to be in constant pursuit of our individual pleasure and enjoyment—what will it take to help us grow up?

In today’s world, becoming an adult might seem to be about hitting a well-recognized milestone like receiving a driver’s license, voting for the first time, or reaching legal age for drinking alcohol. For others, the moment of stepping into the workforce, becoming a parent, or making a major investment in home or career might seem the significant step. However, for traditional cultures (and that includes most of the villages of our great-great- or great-great-great-grandparents), becoming an adult was a sacred matter. Initiation into adulthood was a universal human practice, common to most societies, and it is still practiced by intact traditional cultures to this day.

Part 3: Firekeepers, I Love You for Encouraging people to think together

Firekeepers, I Love You: Part 3 of 9

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.
