A FIRE CIRCLE RETREAT CELEBRATING LIFE AND SPIRIT
REGISTRATION FOR 2024 will open in early winter!
Our dates: July 10-14, back to our traditional 4-fire cycle! Many announcements are made on our Facebook page, so feel free to join.
Our fires are held in a beautiful rustic retreat center located in New Lebanon, NY. See our location page for images and information!
SpiritFire Festival 2024 will be back to five days and four nights/fires (Wednesday – Sunday). It is a retreat-style intentional gathering held at a beautiful rustic retreat center in upstate NY (location to be disclosed when registration opens). 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.
