We remain committed to the well-being of our friends and communities. We no longer require proof of Covid vaccination for attendance at our events, but we do ask for continued diligence about your health prior to heading to the event. Our policy is always based on current CDC guidelines, our own medical staff advice, and of course the host site’s requirements. You can read the current policy here.
Let us all do what we can to keep each other healthy – get your vaccinations, follow best practices regarding testing and masking when necessary, and check in with one another to offer support and love as you can. We are working our way through!
SpiritFire Festival 2023 will be a four day (Wednesday 7/5 – Saturday 7/8) retreat-style gathering held at a beautiful camp in the Adirondack mountains close to Fort Ann, NY. We celebrate life and spirit through the pathways of music, movement, voice, Seva (or service), and the Mysteries, focused in the medium of the sacred all-night fire circle.
During the day, you can explore many types of artistic, expressive, and spiritual practices via workshops, affinity groups, jams, or just hanging out with new friends in the community/merchant circle. When the sun goes down, fire-spinners light up the night to the sounds of amazing drumming, poetry jams flow, chants are shared, and people rest or socialize while preparing for intentional fire-lighting ceremonies that begin an all-night celebration of the sacred in each of us.
SpiritFire provides a nourishing and inspirational environment in which drummers, dancers, chanters, poets, visual artists, and seekers of all types can both honor individual diversity yet share a common and powerful bond at the fire. Each night we acknowledge our connections in the spirit of joyous celebration, deep listening, infectious groove, and ecstatic trance!
“I stumbled across this gathering years ago and have been flying in from CA ever since.
Spiritfire was the answer to a question I didn’t know I had. It is where possibilities come to be ignited and carried off into the world. It is my touchstone, the home hearth of my Spirit, and the space and time that keeps me fueled all year with the Love that is not only in but also beyond space and time.” ~S.E-D.
