July 22-23, 2017 • Blue Deer Center • Margaretville, New York
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.
Voices of Wisdom brings you together with indigenous elders that embody ancestral wisdom. At this event, held around a sacred Fire, elders not only speak, but also offer perspectives and experiences that help people feel the world around them as living, aware and sacred.
The way toward a long-term sustainable future is to individually and collectively regain empathy with each other and the natural world. Through indigenous ancestral wisdom, Voices of Wisdom opens your heart to feel renewed connections within yourself, among participants and with the living world.
At the Blue Deer Center, Voices of Wisdom welcomes Dr. Jody Noé and Gail Whitlow.

Located in the New York Catskills, the Blue Deer Center is an important home for the teachings and practices of Heart — those ancestral traditions of healing, ritual and retreat which restore connection to self, community and the Natural World.
The Center is supported by the living spirit of our land, nourished by the tradition of the Huichol people, and guided by the timeless wisdom of Sacred Fire.
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.
