Wisdom from the dawn of creation.

Ancient legends and sacred texts tell similar stories: when the human people faced tremendous challenges, Divine spirits would sometimes take physical form and offer the people guidance. Such a thing can be difficult for a Western mind to comprehend. But the pressures people face today have been building for a long time. From climate change to extreme social polarization to Covid, peoples’ need for guidance is so great it constitutes a “sacred essential.”

That’s why 20 years ago, the timeless essence of Fire began speaking to people everywhere through Don David Wiley, an elder medicine person in the Huichol tradition of Mexico. “Grandfather Fire” has spoken with thousands of people  who come to hear timeless wisdom and guidance about how to approach life’s challenges with courage and inner balance. Grandfather’s counsel and teachings help people move beyond fear and confusion so they can live Heart-aware lives of meaning and purpose.

Living from Heart is a fundamentally different way of approaching the world.

Grandfather Fire’s stories and lessons about the dynamic interplay of Heart and Mind have changed the lives of people all over the world. 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.

Release your expectations and open your heart to Divine guidance, from the source.

  • 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.
