Sacred Fire Foundation - Ancient Wisdom Rising

Ancient Wisdom traditions and perspectives, the world over, are threatened by our modern way of life. In an effort to preserve ancestral traditions, Sacred Fire Foundation organizes events for meeting and dialogue between traditions — and for others to discover and engage Ancient Wisdom — while working together for the benefit of future generations.
