Sacred Fire Circles are conscious celebrations intended to inspire all who participate to live more meaningful, rewarding, joyous, creative and empowered lives. 


Yes, you, and yes… you do. You deserve an ordeal, not a drama mind you, but a real old fashioned ordeal.

Music and Song

While most of the music at fire circles is improvised we do draw upon the vast library of traditional circle songs...some of which are featured here and some of which have been written by our community specifically for fire circle culture. Most songs sung in our circles are recited in the English language, since thatís the primary dialect in our community and, by doing so, affords our participants an understanding of what we are celebrating/invoking/embodying. New and different songs are welcome in the circle, though we suggest that you present them, if possible, in a call-and-response format, so that everyone can learn and sing them on the fly. 

The mysteries of the fire circle are, in part, transmitted through the words of the songs and chants we sing. Singing out loud can be a challenging experience for some people. We want you to know that our circle is a safe place to take creative/expressive risks, that - no matter what you think it sounds like - your voice is good enough for the circle, and that we want to hear you sing! Even if you're feeling shy, try softly singing along to yourself, or humming. Any sort of sound will get your cells vibrating, which supports a deepening of both your own and the collective experience, so please: sing!
