Don David Wiley
While living in Mexico in the mid-90’s Don David Wiley had a transformational experience with the Spirit of Fire that changed his life. From this point he then began the long road of apprenticing and eventual initiation into two living indigenous traditions in Mexico: the Nahua and the Huichol. He would then become a teacher of these traditions and their medicine to those who would be called to these paths. Since then he has welcomed and baptized the newborn, initiated the young into adulthood, provided counseling and healing for others, buried the dead and helped escort their souls to their final resting place. As part of his work, Don David has also helped institute the Sacred Fire Foundation, to provide grants to indigenous groups around the world, and helped establish Sacred Fire, an international community dedicated to reconnecting people to heart, to each other, and the world through the Spirit of Fire and Firekeeping.
