“It was an awesome first-time event for me.”

“I was deeply and profoundly touched by Grandfather Fire.”
“For days after, I kept having these intense visualizations of fire, and I was able to really “feel” the spirit of fire, as something beyond simple burning wood and instead a primeval creative essence. The whole experience seemed to have set a seed deep in my psyche.”
“I am still basking in the afterglow of the day. I have no words for it—only feelings.”

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.
Although rarely seen in Western culture, “god-speakers” are not a unique occurrence. Many of the world’s respected and valued spiritual traditions feature traditional healers who become conduits for divine guidance. The Nechung oracle of the Dalai Lama is a well-known example.
During Fire Speaks events, traditional healer Don David Wiley lends his body to the Spirit of Fire so that ancient knowledge of the world and life’s purpose can be shared for the benefit of people everywhere.
“I’ve never felt what I felt at this fire before.”
“I don’t have words for how amazing it was!”
“Grandfather fire has called me to live more in my heart, to be open to so many possibilities, and most importantly, to always think how I can serve others. This ancient practice is both simple and profound.”
“His answer helped me more than the answer I was expecting.”
“It was also very meaningful for me to talk to people outside the normal sphere I communicate with. I’ve never been in a group of spiritual seekers like that before.”
