September 24-25, 2016 • Sacred Fire Toronto • Toronto (Ontario) Canada
For thousands of years humans have gathered together around the fire for light, warmth and connection. Voices of Wisdom, an offspring of Ancient Wisdom Rising, is a new regional event by the Sacred Fire Foundation that brings communities together with local indigenous elders and wisdom keepers. In this time of great transition, Sacred Fire Foundation offers Voices of Wisdom as an opportunity to sit in circle and listen to elders, to each other and to fire. Being in the presence of the elders’ embodied wisdom can teach us how to open our relationship with nature, reciprocity, and capacity to “listen” to the living world around us.
For the first time, Voices of Wisdom will be in Canada, welcoming two pivotal elders: Kahontakwas, Diane Longboat, a traditional teacher from Six Nations Grand River Territory, just outside of Toronto; and, Wanbdi Wakita, a Wicasa Wakan (Holy Man) from Sioux Valley Dakota Nation, in Manitoba. Please join us in experiencing their messages of healing and unity among all nations.
There are beautiful hiking areas near the event site, if you are looking for something to do between events.
Voices of Wisdom and the Sacred Fire CommunityEach Voices of Wisdom event is hosted by a hamlet of the Sacred Fire Community, whose Firekeeper holds the space for the gathering. Collaboratively, we create openings to reconnect with the land and the spirits of the place where we live.
