Aloha Friends and Family!
As we prepare for a summer full of ecstatic exploration, sacred engagement and re-union around the Fire, I’m dropping in to share some writing I’ve been working on, in partnership with Spinner, Magnus and Joshua. As many of you know, we have been collaborating on a unique experiment called “Fires Rising” in Pennsylvania for the last 4 years, that has focused on delving deeply into traditional and modern alchemical metaphors and processes. We’re aware that many stories have been told about the magic and mysteries of those fires – and that some of what you have heard may not have made sense. When new visions unfold and new experiments are run, they are often challenging to understand from outside the laboratory in question.
The document; “The Current Evolution of the Alchemical Fire Circle”, is a summation of the goals the four of us have had, the learnings we gained over the last three summers, and is an indicator of the direction toward which our collective highest vision has us aimed. The document was written primarily for the purpose of coming to consensus with each other on what our current understandings and agreements are of this particular version of “The Work” going into Summer.
If we haven’t played together for a while, this is a way for you to at least get a glimpse into what the four of us have been brewing. Many of the principles detailed also inform the Vegas Vortex Mayfire and Hawaii Fire Tribe Gatherings, and will be foundational to two new laboratories we are beginning to work in this year as we seed the Alchemical Fire Circle into the Free Spirit Gathering in Maryland, and the Wisteria Summer Solstice Festival in Ohio. Of course, we’d love to see you at Mayfire, Fire Tribe Hawaii, or Fires Rising as well!

The four of us remain deeply curious about what learnings are happening among the other diverging and converging events in the Family of Fire, and we hope to read similar reports in the future.
May we all grow our Oneness through Diversity!
Beauty and strength, leaping laughter, delicious languor, force and fire are of us!
