EarthFIRE and Flute Circle Sacred Gathering November 22-23 2008

In early September I met Julieanne of EarthFire Australia at a festival near Sydney when she came and bought one of my flutes. I was inspired by their vision of the Fire Circle, something that has been since the beginning of time but is quite rare these days. I decided to talk more with Julianne and invited her to share their vision and energy at a gathering up here in the Northern Rivers and Flute Circle friends. The property Peace Of Eden, a 35 acre bush retreat, 15 mins from kyogle, will be the venue for this gathering.

Here are a few pic's from Peace Of Eden. There is an abundance of wallabies and bird life. Bush and grassland and lovely hills to walk if you feel strong. Access to a creek also. Shaded areas for camping. The grassland will all be freshly cut for the weekend.

Sacred Fire Circle Gathering
November 22-23

The Vision
Northern rivers flute circle are joining with earthFIRE Australia to create a special and unique fire circle gathering at Peace Of Eden, a lovely bush property west of Kyogle for the weekend of 22-23 November. Both are non profit community groups and share similar visions of creating gatherings for people to come into their power, co-create and share amazing energy and ritual together in sacred space. This will be a fantastic way to celebrate, what has been a very abundant year in terms of the growth and awakening of humanity, and to honor all our relations.

We come together to experience the primal beauty of a fire circle, to witness, drum dance, and serve as we are drawn. Here we can let go of the every day world and be ourselves, have fun, connect with eachother, go into ourselves and experience the moment.

We start with the intention to honour and respect the highest vision of community, the Earth Mother and ourselves. What happens after that is up to us. It is through the sharing of our gifts that the magic of the circle blossoms. The fire circle is co-created through the pathways of music (drums, didge, crystal bowls, gongs and chimes, flutes, temple bells, berimbau, mbiras, mouth harps, conch shells, shruti boxes, rattles and rain and clap sticks etc) voice (chant, toning, spoken word), dance and seva (serving each other with a compassionate heart).

We ask that you seek to arrive for the opening circle at 12 midday on Saturday. Bring lunch to share. During the afternoon you will have time to meet kindred spirits, commune with nature, walk the magical Mother Gaia Spiral, experience flute circle and medicine. Learn about the fire circle pathways. There will be time to rest and prepare your energy for the circle after we share a yummy organic dinner and chai. We will gather in sacred ceremony around the fire at midnight and co-create through the pathways of music, dance, voice and seva as we are drawn till dawn.

Everyone is welcome to camp from Friday afternoon onwards. We also welcome people who wish to offer their services by supporting setup and/or pack up. You are also invited to offer up your gifts…these might be body art, fire twirling, cooking or equipment (torches & oil)…whatever you are happy to share.

Honoring Sacred Space
In order to connect deeply and honour our highest vision, earthFIRE and Flute Circle gatherings are alcohol and drug free. Bring your intention to honour Mother Gaia and each other with love and respect.

Donations are welcomed to help cover the expenses of earthFIRE’s travel from and back to Sydney, dinner and chai, oil for torches, and preparing the property. (Around $30 would be appreciated).
