Once a month we hold a Community Fire which gives an opportunity to connect both with likeminded people and the spirit of the fire. The fires are held normally on the third Saturday of the month starting around 7:30pm.
The fire Ceremony is based on the Huichol Traditions of the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico whose spiritual traditions were left untouched by the early Christian invaders. Richard was initiated as a Firekeeper in this tradition more than 10 years ago and has been holding monthly fires ever since.
If you have a drum, rattle or other instrument you wish to play this is welcome, otherwise offerings are There is no charge to attend, although a small donation to costs is welcome.
If you would like to be added to our mailing list for information of sacred fire dates and future events please contact Richard Diss.
If you haven’t been yet then I highly recommend it!
It is a “community” event in the truest sense of the word and a wonderful opportunity to sit in a circle with others, connect with the Fire (or Grandfather ), be outside with nature, share thoughts and feelings (if you wish to) stories and jokes, drum and simply step aside from the hectic activity of daily life. It offers the space to sit, be still and reconnect, which can be seen as a rare commodity in these times and something of great value and I know that I have sometimes arrived at the Fire feeling very heavy and over burdened and yet by the time I leave feel completely clear, light and re-energised.
Come along and experience this wonderful evening for yourself!
