Fire Speaks

In difficult times, ancient traditions come to our aid.
Fire Speaks

For hundreds of thousands of years, Fire has been central to human existence, not only providing warmth, light, and protection, but sacred space for communing with Divine. Known by many names — such as the Hindu Agnideva, the Huichol Tatewarí (Grandfather Fire), the Egyptian Sekhmet, and the Greek Hephaestus — the Spirit of Fire has been revered and engaged by the original traditions and peoples of our earth as a source of wisdom, compassion and transformation.

What would it be like to hear and experience the voice of Fire?

When the peoples go through difficult periods, the ancestral traditions offered a pathway for a spirit-speaking person to help their societies receive guidance and reestablish connection to the Sacred. Even in our present generations there exist respected traditions where a person is chosen by Spirit to serve in this way. The Tibetan kuten and the indigenous Huichol axihuatakame are two examples.

David Wiley
In a rare occurrence, the Spirit of Fire has selected a person from outside the usual indigenous setting to serve as such a conduit for the people of our western culture, who are deeply challenged and in need of renewed connection to the Sacred. Acting as a bridge between worlds and cultures, Don David Wiley was raised in the West but called, trained, initiated and accepted as an elder in two ancestrally-related indigenous peoples — the Nahuas and Huichols. Since Grandfather Fire has appeared to provide a new, yet old voice in the world, Don David is traveling on Fire’s behalf to provide this to international audiences in Europe, Latin America, Canada, Australia and the United States.

We warmly invite you to begin the day with us at 2:00 pm. There will be a catered Mexican dinner at 6:00 pm with gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian options available. Our Audience with Grandfather Fire will begin around dusk and may last past midnight.

We acknowledge that these teachings are made available to us through the offering of David Wiley, who allows Tatewari to “wear the suit” of his body throughout the night so that he may speak with us. We express gratitude through a fee for David’s arduous sacrifice. This is a non profit event provided and sustained by a team of dedicated volunteer staff.
