Each night at SpiritFire, we offer a different focus – a map, of sorts – as an offering to those who would like to engage as a community at the fire.
Tonight our traditional Pathways ritual opens our first fire, invoking and honoring the core of SpiritFire’s circle: Music, Motion, Voice, and Seva, opening the first fire of 2013.
Thursday: Bring It
Tonight we come together to shine and share the light of our most full, robust, and whole selves. Tonight we acknowledge and invite all of the truth and raw beauty within each of us. Not limited by ideas of ‘right’ or ‘best’, we instead step forward with authenticity. Coming out from behind our inhibitions against fully be-ing, we weave brighter the fire of ourselves and of our community. Before you come to the circle, we ask you to meditate on your gifts: what makes you unique? What aspect or quality do you want to reveal? Are you willing to trust, to open up a bit, and share your light with each other tonight? Are you ready to shine?
Each of us has a path we envision ourselves on – or perhaps are looking to find out more about what that path might be. Tonight we invite you to use the rhythm, chant, movement and mystery of the fire to dive deeper into what it is you truly want to manifest, and to find ways to voice and enact it. The “Fire of Transformation” workshop will lead this fire lighting ritual.
Saturday: The Web
Tonight we celebrate and make offerings of gratitude to the web of those who support us in our journeys: our communities, families, ancestors, guides and spirits – those we could not walk our pathways without. Consider these guiding lights tonight – and during the day, feel free to create a symbolic representation of/for them within the sand rangoli.
