“Looking at the world stage, the two countries that hold the most nuclear weapons are at war with each other. That’s of critical, universal concern, creating fear and anger in people, whether those emotions are in conscious awareness or not. This is why the work of Sacred Fire Firekeepers is so important. We hold a space in which Fire can touch our lives to our benefit, promoting heart-centered relationships and offering guidance and healing. So many times the safe space we create around Fire allows attendees to speak something difficult, to be witnessed, and I find that is always a big important step for them. It may seem a small action in the face of much larger battles, but I believe it makes a difference.
“The support that Firekeepers can offer each other is very valuable for our work as well, and I’m really looking forward to seeing old friends and connecting with new ones from around the world at our first-ever international Firekeeper Summit.”
