The Council Fire- Reloaded

Traditional indigenous decision making practices Welcome to the latest installment of our ongoing conversations around the Council Fire. I refer to this article as The Council Fire-Reloaded, which is a play on the Matrix movies of which I’m a great fan. I recognize many parallels between the Matrix movies and the times that we are living in. However, my primary intention for making this Reloaded reference is to call for a reset of our current world paradigm.  A plea for our society to return to our shared ancestral respect for the natural world, and the resurrection of ancient indigenous knowledge. May we rediscover the true significance of gathering around a council fire and experience...

The Council Fire Revelation

The Council Fire is more than a series of related articles, it is evolving and taking on a new purpose. The time is rapidly approaching for the Council Fire to transition from its first conception as an article, and into a living, transformational movement. The basis for the next installment of the Council Fire is already known. Within that article, I will offer a foundation, a set of indigenous based protocols on to how to create and work within your own Council Fire. After the next article,  I will encourage you to begin forming into your own Council Fire groups.  The concept of holding Council Fire gatherings will then be shaped and transformed by all of you. Before proceeding further, as the title implies, it’s time to share a revelation with you. The inspiration for The Council Fire is more than a deep love and respect for indigenous wisdom. The origins of The Council Fire is based upon a vision in which a prophetic message was revealed to me. This vision and message presented during the most profound Shamanic journey that I’ve ever experienced.  I believe this message is meant to be shared with the each of you, and with the entire world. A little background about how I received this message. I was practicing what is referred to as the Shamanic journey. Just like in meditation, it requires that we clear our mind, and focus on our breathing. Those same deep, cleansing breaths are incorporated as...

Traveling with a Lost Soul

I was heading for the U.S. border at the Thousand Islands Crossing On Sunday, I was returning home from a wonderful weekend with friends in Lanark county, Ontario. While traveling along a rural stretch of road, I turned south at the junction of routes 15 and 32. There on the side of the road stood an older man who appeared to be in need of a ride. In that moment, I experienced this overwhelming feeling which compelled me to stop. At the man’s feet were three bags, one of which appeared to be a sleeping bag. I pulled over...

A Message from the Council Fires – Update 001

 We as a species are within a period of great and perilous change If you are on a spiritual path, the premise of the world being in a time of great change is nothing new.  However, what these changes look like, and the eventual outcome has been the subject of lively debates. There are some points of consensus among these various groups. Most agree that we as a species are within a period of great and perilous change. While there seems to be little agreement as to the nature and rate of these impending changes, most in the light worker community, would prefer to...

The Council Fire

Ancient indigenous ways   The Council Fire represents an ongoing conversation and call for Mother Earth’s wisdom Keepers to come together, to spring forth from the shadows and take your rightful place around the sacred fire. It’s time that your voices are heard, time to share your wisdom and knowledge with the world. We are at a time of immense transition, which presents humanity with great opportunities, but also brings with it great peril. We find ourselves in a pivotal period of time, where humanities next stage of evolution will be decided. This stage of evolution coincides with what...
