Fire Speaks: An Audience with Grandfather Fire
Sacred Fire House | Olympia, WA USA
Sat, Aug. 7 | 4:00 pm-12:30 am Pacific (US)
Grandfather Fire speaks wisdom from the dawn of creation.
Ancient legends and sacred texts tell similar stories: when the human people faced tremendous challenges, Divine spirits would sometime take physical form to offer the people guidance. Such a thing can be difficult for a Western mind to comprehend.
The extreme pressures people face today have been building for a long time. That’s why 25 years ago, the timeless essence of Fire began speaking to people 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 receive 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.
“Experiencing Grandfather is like an education for your soul.”
“I was deeply and profoundly touched by Grandfather Fire.”
“It was an awesome first-time event for me.”
