img_0658_picmonkeyed (1)Sacred Fire Initiation: July 16 – Jul 17

For most Shamanic cultures the sacred fire is very much a force or presence that is found in all organic life. In this sense, the fire is very much alive and carries within it the universal energy that animates what we call nature and spirit. Intentionally bringing forth the fire and placing yourself within it’s light and heat for extended periods fosters purification, protection, connection, and visionary experiences. Once the initiate completes this rite of passage, the sacred fire will be an ally for the rest of their life and will walk with them wherever they go.
