“Our ability to connect, listen and speak truth”
Sitting down around the fire (real or symbolic) we deepen our ability to connect, listen and speak truth. A Fire Talk is a moment by moment exploration of what it is like to be in connection with yourself and each other. Fundamentally, circling up around the fire requires a commitment to seeing and connection.
We practise revealing more layers of ourselves by avoiding niceties and tuning into bodily cues and awareness more precisely. Sometimes we get to hear the natural rhythm of our being more clearly and sink into an ever-present and eternal trust. Welcome home.
We intend to practice principles like owning our experience, sharing impact, using present moment (experiential/somatic/subtle body) feedback. We commit to holding ourselves and the other in positive regard.
- Receiving or giving this particular quality of attention can be refreshing, confronting and healing.
- Fire Talks can grow your capacity to trust yourself and your experience, your agency and self-authority.
- A deeper feeling of connection with others and self.
Days lost in the woods
Stepping out into the woods as a pack, we practice and play with fundamental outdoor skills and our level of awareness while being in nature together.
To be honest, most of the work is done by simply showing up – nature has a habit of giving us what we are needing, no matter what we might think of the experience at the time. We let nature hold us, challenge us and nourish us.
