The sacred fire – the sacred waters – the sacred earth etc are all things that people take for granted in the modern world but they have a life force and when we connect with the elements we feel at peace . No longer isolated from you’re own spirit then that of the divine; as life is so painful we lose parts of ourselves, along the way at childhood etc trauma at any time. Being in nature connects us back to those lost parts.The Houciol elders gave this ritual to the world so people could live again in community around a fire giving support and love to each other. The Ritual has never changed – you go around the fire anti-clock wise 5 times , on each round you put an offering in 4 and the last round is just for the fire. These offerings are your individual prayers and concerns and desires, witnessed by each other. When you leave which you can do at any time you put a stick in the fire to close yourself down and give thanks. There are no agendas; what comes up around the fire comes up. you can bring songs, instruments, writings and your lovely selves PLUS CHOCOLATE. The fire loves chocolate.
