Release your expectations and open your heart to Divine guidance

Grandfather Fire’s stories and lessons about the dynamic interplay of Heart and Mind have helped people find a new way to relate to the world and its challenges. He cuts through doubt, confusion and illusion with a long-view perspective that delivers tried-and-true ways to find connection, compassion, learning, growth and healing. He’s wise, funny, provoking and astonishingly insightful.

Grandfather Fire brings the southeastern United States guidance and antidotes to the confusion and disconnection that can arise when people drift away from living from the heart.



For over 20 years, Grandfather Fire—called “Tatewari” by Mexico’s Indigenous Huichol people—has been sharing teachings, sacred stories and life guidance with people all over the world. Find out more information about this phenomenon here.

Grandfather Fire has been a friend and teacher to humans for 800,000 years. Spending an evening with Him can be a life-changing event. You are invited to come sit around a sacred fire and receive Grandfather Fire’s wisdom and counsel as He answers our questions.


“What you experience with Grandfather is like an education for your soul.”

“Wow, there were so many things I liked, and that I am still processing and absorbing. I liked the pace of the event, the location and the care that was given to all the participants. Thank you for sharing this experience!”



For everyone’s health and safety we will comply with state and local regulations for group gatherings. Additional details provided with your registration. Questions? Contact Lois Hurley, Community Events Coordinator at


  • Grandfather Fire

    Grandfather Fire—Traditional cultures throughout the Americas have long known Fire to be a wise and loving presence. Many Aboriginal and First Nations peoples call the Spirit of Fire Grandfather. During Fire Speaks audiences, traditional healer Don David Wiley lends his body so the Spirit of Fire can answer questions from those who come to hear His stories and wisdom.  Spending time with Grandfather Fire and his teachings about living life from Heart has helped thousands find clarity and courage to meet life’s challenges in a new way. Grandfather Fire is wise, funny, provoking, and profoundly insightful. Spending an evening with Him is a unique opportunity to ask your most pressing questions about life’s mysteries and deepen your connection with the sacred spirits of the natural world.
