Ignite Your Heart: A community celebration featuring Grandfather Fire
Brimpts Farm, Dartmoor
Dartmoor, England, Devon, United Kingdom
June 15-17, 2018

In difficult times, an ancient 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, many have a tradition 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.


The event price includes all event expenses, accommodations, and meals (Friday dinner through Sunday breakfast). The price varies depending on your accommodation option. Special pricing is provided for those under 18.

There are 3 types of accommodations available:

  • Camping
    There is ample room in the campground to pitch your tent or park your campervan.
  • Indoor rooms
    There are a limited number of rooms with ensuite shower and toilet that can sleep between 2 and 4 people. These will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
  • Pods
    There are also five camping pods in the camping field which provide a comfortable indoor/outdoor space and sleep up to 4 people in bunk beds. You will share the toilets and washing facilities with the campers. These will be made available once the indoor accommodation is filled.
