The whole game changed when humankind discovered how to create fire and harness its energy. Ever since then, the fire has been a central focus of culture and community and for good reason. Fire warms our homes, cooks our food, forges our tools, and powers our engines. Many cultures see fire as a living being that carries intentions from the physical world into the spirit realm to be manifested. Throughout the gathering, our firekeepers will be holding sacred fire space for those who are looking for a quiet place to ground, pray, and sing medicine songs. This will be, in a sense, the ceremonial center of the gathering.
