Community fires happen monthly
in cities and towns just like yours
all over the world
Sacred Fire trains, initiates and supports an international community of Firekeepers who host monthly fire gatherings open to all.
These fires help people reconnect to themselves, each other, and the natural world in order to live a life of relationships, awareness, and purpose—not only for themselves but for humanity. Through the shared experience of the influence of fire as a source of wisdom and transformation, people can achieve the balance they seek amid the challenges of today’s society.
“Moving forward from my time spent at the gathering, I feel change. Simple, effective, positive change.”
For everyone’s ancestors, fire was the emotional and spiritual center of community where people came together to refocus, renew, and connect with each other and the world around them. Today, many of us have lost this center and as a result, we seek solutions to modern problems without addressing the root of these problems: disconnection of heart, mind, and spirit.
“Now more than ever, I must embrace my heart, embrace the fire in me, to truly live harmoniously with the world.”
Firekeepers offer community fires in 9 countries, including Australia, Canada, Colombia, England, Ireland, Mexico, Scotland, the United States and Wales. Many of the Firekeepers also offer Women’s and Men’s fires and other special events.

Learn about Grandfather Fire’s Wisdom in Action.
Sacred Fires are hosted by Firekeepers who are trained, initiated, and receive continuing education in how to host and facilitate community fires. Firekeepers learn the ancient principles of Fire Work—a particular way to “hold space” and work with Fire’s powers of illumination and transformation—to bring about healing through deeper connections and relationships with oneself, community, and the sacred living world around us.
Most Firekeepers do not require advanced registration to attend a community fire. Others require an RSVP or registration via Eventbrite or MeetUp. Online fires do require pre-registration with Zoom. Visit our Find Your Fire page and contact a local firekeeper to learn more.
Some community fires begin with potlucks, others do not. Some community fires have early hours for young families, others do not. Some fires have set times to end the evening. Others are more open-ended. Each fire is unique. Visit our Find Your Fire page and contact a local firekeeper to learn more.
There is no charge to attend a community fire. However, donations offered as a token of exchange for the benefits received around the fire are very appreciated. Firekeepers voluntarily take on the life-long commitment of preparing and holding space for others because they’ve found the medicine of Fire to be a powerful antidote to many of the spiritual, social and emotional challenges in the world. Your generosity helps fuel everyone’s Fire.
