Merry Solstice! Today marks the day of the most hours of daylight in the Northern Hemisphere, the most hours of darkness in the Southern. This is a turn point of the year. How are you feeling or meeting this turning point? I celebrated on Saturday by hosting a day long workshop the ended with a firewalk! Please do not try this at home, only work with a professional certified firewalk instructor (I know some people😉). So why a firewalk? 🔥🔥Fire is the element we have a most distant relationship with, yet we are made of the elements. We are built of earth and water, we interact and take air into our earth and water suits all day every day. 🔥🔥Fire is a transformational element. It changes what it touches and when it touches us, we change. I certainly did not plan to become a firewalk instructor. In fact, the first retreat I attended with a firewalk I had a plan to discreetly slip away to my room before the firewalk…that did not happen. I walked that night and my life shifted. Everything changed because the fire transformed me. Now I co-teach with the fire. Each fire is an individual, they have a name and personality. The fire that taught with me this weekend was Lizzo. She was beefy, solid, steady. She burned hot and held a level of subtlety that a layer over her truth. Please, do not try walking at home on your own. This fire burned at 1400 degrees and was beautifully co-created in sacred space by a team of professionals. The pictures run from the stack to the final coal art we create with each fire. ❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥
