Closing Ceremony




Our Beloved Fire Keeper is moving on to Asheville to start a new chapter closer to his son.

Before he leaves, he's offering one last parting gift, passing on the fundamentals of sacred fire keeping to all those open to recieving.

This event will consist of 3 parts

- A Fire Initation, for those looking to learn the fundamentals of sacred fire keeping

- A Fire Ceremony, led by the initiates

- An open song circle, welcoming all people, instruments, and gifts

During the introduction to firekeeping Alex will offer a brief overview of the different fundamental aspects of traditional and modern sacred fire keeping, an interactive lecture, and Q/A session.

Topics will include intention setting, ceremonial preparation, sacred song, sacred dance, the spirit world, and spiritual, ethical & personal implications of fire keeping.

During the actual fire ceremony time, we will gather and apply the concepts learned in order to create a safe space for expression, prayer, song and dance. We will also open up space to meditate with the fire as a group and receive its wisdom.

We will close the evening with an open song circle around the fire and potluck. Bring your instruments and a dish to share. This will incorporate many genres or styles of music and will be open for anyone to share music, stories, or dance as we celebrate in gratitude for our community and connection.

Come, learn, celebrate, and help send Alex off to his next chapter with an abundance of Love and sustenance.

This event is also a fundraiser to help Alex step into his next chapter feeling supported.

For those interested in the entire experience, we suggest making a payment of $35 - 65 in exchange for the fire initiation ceremony. If you're unable to contribute finanially, and feel called to learn, we welcome you to the fire with an open heart, in respect. For those who simply want to come for the ceremony and/or song circle, we welcome any level of contribution.

Some of these funds will go to support Roots to Crown.
