Fire is the life force of us all :: the Sun we revolve around, the hearth at the center of our homes, the lava core of our Earth, the sustained flame deep in our hearts. This sentient being is a transformer of lands, a catalyst of story, a tender of ritual, and a profound teacher. In this virtual class friction fire methods will be discussed and demonstrated, as well as tips for gathering wood, lighting and tending a fire, building a fire kit, and connecting deeper to this fundamental element. The ancient magic of friction fire is the way that our ancestors lit their fires :: calling on the solar energy in our bodies and the bones of trees to create an ally of flame.
Bring a notebook, pen, and candle to tune in from afar.
