[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.
Beyond protection, cooking, and utility, our ancestors—in cultures around the world—understood how the spiritual qualities of Fire can open hearts, forge connection to self, others and nature, and when properly facilitated, unlock the door to personal healing and life improvement. Throughout time, this method of connection, which we refer to as Fire Work, has been relied upon by cultures that are generally acknowledged as wise and societally balanced. For some remote cultures, their tradition of Fire Work continues into the present day, but until now the advantage of this human-and-Fire process has largely been forgotten and is unrecognized in our current way of living.
“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 would really benefit from the gifts of Fire and connection with community, which seems to be waning. If you feel a calling to learn the skills of Fire Work, please contact us.
Firekeepers undertake a year-long orientation and training before undertaking a formal initiation where they become 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. Together with the spontaneity, inspiration, and life challenges brought by those in attendance, community fires offer an opportunity 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, 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!
