In this training we reach out all ‘tools’ to keep the fire professional and intuitive, as well in sweatlodges, firewalks as all other fire ceremonies a,d rituals. Learn as a Fire Keeper how you can keep the space and take a group along in connection with the deeper transformative layers of a fire.

Use, origin and values concerned with fire in indigenous cultures worldwide; the power of fire in the Medicine Wheel, in connection with the 4 elements and the 4 wind directions and the 3 worlds.

Preparation, as the building of different fires, construction of a sweatlodge, types of wood and stones;

Learn to understand the language of the fire; offering to the fire, smudging, fire as transformator, as a shaman, a teacher…

We will go deeper in the task of a Fire Keeper and the importance of his/her fully presence with the fire. It is a task of full dedication from the heart and the soul, with all in and around the fire.  Fire Keepers know that their relation with and keeping the fire is connection on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and energetic. We give the necessary attention to your own process during this training!

Concerning the sweatlodge, we learn how to interact, feel and observe the energies that are alive, to decide the intention or theme when you are guiding a sweatlodge.

We will look to the difference between traditional sweatlodges or inipi from North-America, and temascales/ritual purification steam baths from Central and South America ánd how we can create a sweatloge regarding the (groups)energy at the moment. We share songs around the fire and share wisdom on smudging, herbs and incenses.

We will learn to construct a sweatlodge and will go to the Eifel to search our own vulcanic stones. We will have different sweatlodges.

During the fire walk weekend we learn to create a fire path and connect with the energy to walk without fear and in freedom over the fire.

We learn to connect  between fire, spirit and body, and create a bridge between the elements and the power of consciousness in the present moment, in connection with your purpose/intention and your fear.

After this training it is the purpose to be able to build a practice as a firekeeper through keeping the fire, guide sweatlodges or firewalks, create fire rituals and ceremonies.

To finish the training, we ask a minimum of 3 experiences, with report.

After this training you will be able to communicate with an open mind and respect with the fire and your inner fire!

Aho!  Awen! (Celtic: with the Power of the Flowing Spirit)
