Kindling the Heart
An Online Experience of Fire

A Time-Tested Way to Soothe and Nurture Your Soul
The complexity of modern life takes a toll on even the most resilient people. Indeed, we can practice self-care to keep our minds, bodies and spirits healthy—and pressures, doubts and anxieties will still creep up and drag us down.
It’s good to know that there’s a simple, proven technique that can revive our mental, physical and emotional center: kindling the heart.
When we kindle something, we arouse emotion in it. We inspire it. We get a fire going in it. And at Sacred Fire, we take “getting a fire going” very seriously.
Spark a deeper connection with nature and spirit through Fire’s “alternative medicine.”
Since earliest times, people have intuitively felt the special, healing quality of fire. Fire warms, illuminates and enlivens. It quiets the mind’s spinning chatter, allowing us to hear something relaxed and different.
Kindling the Heart helps us access our inner knowing—the part of our self that is enduring, authentic, whole and real. That inner knowing is expressed through the voice of heart—our healing wellspring of courage, clarity, confidence, compassion, and connection.
Kindle your own heart’s Fire online.
Kindling the Heart will give you an understanding of the unique role Fire has played in human history—and why it is particularly important to us in modern times.
You will also have the opportunity to taste how Fire’s presence can help you find your center—grounded, in touch with your feelings, and more aligned with the flow of life around you.
Deepen your appreciation of both Fire and heart in this special “fee-free” two-hour online experience.
Fire’s been around forever. Literally! Come experience the special role Fire holds in deepening our relationships with nature, spirit and Divine—no matter what “Divine” looks like to you.
