Walking with Fire
Practical Conversations for Living a Heart-Centered Life

Open the Door to a New Way of Experiencing the World
“I speak through you and through the world all of the time.”
–Grandfather Fire from Heard Around the Fire, p. 6
Walking with Fire is an online introduction to the wisdom of Grandfather Fire. Whether you have yet to attend one of Sacred Fire’s Fire Speaks events, or have attended and want to deepen your appreciation for the teachings of Grandfather Fire, this program is for you.
As the name of the program suggests, the purpose of Walking with Fire is not so much to get to a destination—like a final, set ‘understanding’ of what Grandfather is teaching. Really it is more of a process and this offering is meant to open the door to a new way of experiencing the world.
Actually it is really a very old way! Our ancestors were gathering around the fire many, many thousands of years ago. They did so for the light, warmth, and safety, but as the Story of Humans and Fire indicates, they also did it because of the Spiritual Presence of Fire. That Spirit helps us to remember our connection to the beautiful, mysterious web of life.
We’re hosting four of these discussion groups in June, July, August and October of 2023. Each session of Walking with Fire will focus on a particular teaching from Grandfather Fire.
We will share our thoughts and any experiences that bear upon that teaching. In that way, it is not about finding the one ‘right’ answer, but in true Heart fashion, seeing how the wisdom of Fire is already moving through our lives. This is the kind of learning that we call ‘knowing’—something that resonates deeply with who we are and what we are meant to bring forth in the world.
Our purpose is to create a deeper appreciation for the wisdom of Fire and how it can practically benefit our lives. Those benefits include joy, peace, and gratitude.
We hope you will join us in this adventure of Walking with Fire!
