Life Cycle Living
Sacred Fire Asheville
Asheville, North Carolina, US
March 10-11, 2018
In our race toward progress and increased productivity, our culture has forgotten so much. All life has a powerful cyclic order. Living with an awareness of life’s cycles aligns us with this natural balance, helping us to lead more connected, empowered lives.
When we adopt this perspective, we discover that life can be easier and more fulfilling than we thought. For example, each stage of our life has an important role to play in naturally producing gifts and opportunities that are readily available, if we understand how to identify them. Ancestral traditions understood this explicitly and worked to maintain this awareness for common benefit.
The Sacred Fire Community is working to reintroduce this awareness so that we and our families and communities can once again benefit from these life currents.
We hope you will join us for this opportunity to explore these invaluable perspectives with Sherry Boatright and don David Wiley — two leaders in the international Sacred Fire Community.
Don David Wiley has dedicated his life to restoring people’s connection to Ancient Wisdom and bringing an awareness of the vital role this connection plays in our lives. An initiated tsaurririkame (elder Huichol shaman, or mara’akame) and caporal mayor (elder Nahua weather-working shaman, or granicero), don David is the founder and chairman of the Sacred Fire Community and Sacred Fire Foundation, which are dedicated to preserving ancient wisdom traditions and making ancient wisdom accessible to people in today’s world.

Sherry Boatright is an elder quiatizques (woman bringer of rain or weather shaman) in the Nahuatl tradition of the central highlands of Mexico. A former psychotherapist experienced in leading women’s groups, she is a ceremonial leader and a Sacred Fire Community Firekeeper. Sherry is the Director of Lifeways for the Sacred Fire Community, a series of programs that honor and celebrate the natural stages and transitions of life.
