Sacred Flame- Hallows Fire; Honoring Shadow
October 29th, 2016
Halloween has deep and ancient roots. The Celts call it Samhain, in Latin countries it is The Day Of The Dead. During this time of year we experience the shortest days and longest nights. It is a time when "the veil between the worlds" is thin. This is the time to honor our ancestors and commune with those who have crossed into the next world.
At Hallows Fire we honor not only our dead, but our own shadows; parts of ourselves that have died, or have never really lived. In allowing our "shadow sides" to play and be seen, we free ourselves from the confines of being the "living dead" to experience life to it's fullest!
What part of yourself is screeming to be heard?
What hidden part of you wants to come out and play?
Who inside of you is ready to move from the shadows into the light?
At Hallows Fire you are encouraged to costume yourself as the shadow who desires to be expressed. Sometimes the shadow is not the dark side at all, but perhaps a playful jester, a sensual being, another gender or the powerful part of you like a queen or king!
Hallows Fire begins Saturday afternoon with playshop immersions by Powerful Community Leaders.
After the playshops we share a pot luck feast, get oriented to the sacred fire circle experience, and then the main event-
A 3 hour Sacred Fire Circle where we drum, dance, sing, and make magic and music together under the stars.
Bring- Drums, and other instruments to play at the fire. Percussion intruments are available for you to play.
We are also celebrating Dev's birthday! (the producer of Sacred Flame)

Wild Heart Playground ~ Dance With Darkness. With Nancy Parker www.inbodywisdom.com
Liberate your wild heart and discover the magic revealed to those courageous enough to peer into the shadows. Using embodied authentic relating and movement meditation, we will deepen into connection to our hearts, to each other, to the collective & to the cosmic energy fields to see what is lurking just beneath the surface, waiting to be revealed.
This is a playground for awakening and integration. A sacred play space to attune to your wild heart's wisdom and tap into your soul’s intelligence, opening up to even greater possibilities in your life. Be warned, by the end of this experience you may feel - boundless depth, overflowing joy, profound sweetness, authentic connection, wildness, and liberation from your old B.S. (belief systems).
Shadow Speaks ~ Embrace Your Inner Shadows. With Sita Rose www.sitarose.com
This workshop is a vocal playground asking you to dissolve into cosmic vibration. It's a personal exploration of vocal freedom through meditation, breath, and mantra. Within a safe and structured container, Sita Rose draws on ancient and contemporary healing chants to promote self-inquiry and expression. She will expertly guide all participants to reveal and then embrace the shadow side through vocal explorations.
Sound Play ~ Music Making. With Kerem Brule' www.kerembrule.com
Uncover your deep musicality, perhaps hidden in the shadows, in a supportive and fun circle of friends. We will connect and inspire each other through creating rhythms and song with our voices as well as instruments made from recyclable materials. We'll take the creative energy of improvisational music making to the fire with us!
