Children’s Fire

Wed 3/3/21 - 8:00 am to Wed 3/3/21 - 5:00 pm

Practitioner: Mac Macartney

In this workshop Mac will guide a process that takes us deep inside the felt experience of returning home to relationship, connection and belonging.

Together we will form a council of enquiry and to this we will bring our stories, questions, dreams, grief and hopes. As we deepen into the process we will consider the deeper implications of carrying the children’s fire and we will have the opportunity to take a pledge that could profoundly change everything thereafter.

We will spend time outside in nature, make fire in the old way, and deepen what it means to walk the invisible path as a fire carrier. There will be laughter and joyfulness, sadness and tears, companionship and wonderment – all things that help us deepen our humanity.
