04 Jan Fire from the Earth
Fire is the life force of us all:: the Sun we revolve around, the sacred hearth at the center of our homes, the lava core of our Earth Mother, the flame deep in our hearts. Join as we talk about fire in all its forms:: how it is a transformer of lands, a provider of life, a catalyst of ceremony and a profound spiritual teacher. Learn how to build and sustain a fire from the landscape; with prayer and ceremony in the gathering of the wood, the building of the structure and the lighting of the coal. We will practice the ancient art of fire-by-friction, the same way our ancestors lit their sacred fires. No match or lighter, just the solar energy in our bodies and the bones of our plant sisters to create a flame that will nurture our inner and outer fires.
Fire from the Earth will be shared by Miriam Grace.
