Find your fire now!
[Discover. Connect. Renew.]
Each month, people around the world gather together at sacred fires to participate in humanity’s oldest tradition. Here, as before, people from all walks of life, religions, and traditions are welcome.
We all have ancestors from the earliest days of humanity. These people, around the world, knew that Fire held an importance beyond protection, warmth, cooking and utility. They understood how the spiritual qualities of Fire can open hearts and forge courageous, compassionate connection to self, others and nature. When properly facilitated, Fire unlocks the door to personal healing and life improvement. Throughout time, this method of connection – which we call Fire Work – has helped societies form wise and balanced cultures and traditions. As today’s world grows increasingly complex, the advantages of this humans-and-Fire relationship has largely been forgotten. Sacred Fire offers everyone the opportunity to experience Fire’s benefits.
“I think the thing that impresses me most is people being themselves. To me the root of the breakups of community and the breakups of society is mainly due to people trying to be something that they are not and forgetting to behave in simple, honest, open relationships with each other. In so many respects we need community everywhere and all attempts to creating it are valid.
This is one of those places where it is good to be you.”

Become a Firekeeper
Our world today really needs the gifts of Fire and the connection to life and community Fire brings. If you feel a calling to learn the skills of Fire Work, please contact us.
Firekeepers undertake a year-long orientation and training before becoming initiated and authorized to host sacred fires for their communities. Firekeepers make a commitment to hold Fires monthly for their community and to engage in continuing education to cultivate their skills.
No events are scheduled at this time.

Community fires are hosted by Firekeepers who are trained and receive continuing education in the time-honored principles of Fire Work—how to expand and enrich our relationships through the connective and transformative power of Fire. They offer a space for the spontaneity, inspiration, and life challenges brought by all who attend, bringing fresh perspectives and opportunities for personal and group transformation. We can then carry any benefits received to our homes, our communities, and the world.
At community fires, we share and embrace our stories, music, laughter, connection and conflicts. Whether a particular fire is quiet and contemplative, emotional and challenging, or raucous and irreverent, it provides many opportunities for transformation in our lives.
We host a growing number of community fires in countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Mexico, Colombia, Canada, Ireland, England, Scotland, Greece and in numerous locations throughout the United States.
Sacred Fire community fires are open to people from all walks of life, perspectives, religions, and traditions. Come join us!
