Hosted by the Quiatlzques of the Nahua Weatherworking Tradition

Twice each year those initiated in the Nahua granicero tradition gather at their sacred altar in Tepoztlán, Mexico, to conduct their Spring and Fall ceremonies.  With great consistency and effort, the quiatlzques (also called graniceros) work to make a relationship with the weather in order to provide for their communities. During these ceremonies, Grandfather Fire blesses them with an appearance so they can benefit from his wisdom and guidance.  The general audience with Grandfather Fire is open to all.  We would be honored to have you attend.

In difficult times, an ageless ally is still here to help.
In indigenous cultures, when the need for community guidance is urgent, such as when a situation of great imbalance exists, there exist traditions of an individual being selected for Divine to speak through—so the guidance can be heard clearly.

Now is such a time.
In many original traditions in the Americas, the spirit of Fire is known as “Grandfather Fire.” Since 1999, Grandfather Fire has been making appearances at Sacred Fire gatherings around the world. He has chosen a Huichol shaman, don David Wiley, to be his spokesperson.

In a ceremonial setting, we invite Grandfather to share his guidance.
Grandfather is wise, funny, provoking, and astonishingly insightful. An evening with the elemental spirit of Fire is an opportunity to ask our most pressing questions about the mysteries of life and to deepen our connection with the sacred. Being in Grandfather’s presence can inspire us to manifest deeper courage in meeting the challenges of our lives.


$300 MXN for Mexican residents; $50 USD for everyone else

Throughout the ages, Fire has been regarded as the essence of heart, the source of spiritual connection and compassion. Known as Grandfather Fire to many traditions native to the Americas, Fire holds our deepest knowing and wisdom, and awakens our personal relationship with the great mystery of life.

In this video, participants of Las Tine An Chroí (Light Up Your Heart — an extended Fire Speaks event held in Ireland in 2017) discuss the importance of community, Fire, and the connection Fire brings.
