Fire Speaks is a rare and precious offering to our people, with teachings that provide much-needed wisdom perspective to help us in this time of uncertainty. We are aware of the unprecedented challenges presented by COVID-19. Sacred Fire is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our community, volunteers and their families.

Event leaders will walk you through a process to ensure we enjoy our time together and prioritize everyone’s safety. In order to achieve this, there will be limiting seating. It is a valuable and beneficial offering to have Grandfather’s teachings at this time.

Please review the COVID-19 guidelines that will be in effect for this event here.

Some years ago the Tepoztlán community asked Grandfather Fire for support in dealing with the increase in crime and violence in our area. His answer was to offer us guidance for an annual  ritual invoking the presence of the local protectors of this sacred valley. This ritual brings protection both  for those of us who live here and everyone else who attends. After the ritual, we are all invited to take ashes from the fire home with us with special instructions for their use.

In difficult times, an ageless ally is still here to help.
In indigenous cultures, when the need for community guidance is urgent, such as when a situation of great imbalance exists, there exist traditions of an individual being selected for Divine to speak through—so the guidance can be heard clearly.

Now is such a time.
In many original traditions in the Americas, the spirit of Fire is known as “Grandfather Fire.” Since 1999, Grandfather Fire has been making appearances at Sacred Fire gatherings around the world. He has chosen a Huichol shaman, don David Wiley, to be his spokesperson.

In a ceremonial setting, we invite Grandfather to share his guidance.
Grandfather is wise, funny, provoking, and astonishingly insightful. An evening with the elemental spirit of Fire is an opportunity to ask our most pressing questions about the mysteries of life and to deepen our connection with the sacred. Being in Grandfather’s presence can inspire us to manifest deeper courage in meeting the challenges of our lives.


  • 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.
