Sacred Fire: Lifeways

About This Center

Human societies throughout history have moved through the stages of life with teachings on how to do so, ceremonies that help align our lives to the natural world, and initiations that help move us through major life transitions, such as from childhood to adulthood.

LifeWays provides workshops, ceremonies, and initiations that support us through the phases and transitions we all experience, helping us align with the wisdom and gifts of each phase of life.

We call this alignment Life Cycle Living.

Behind all LifeWays offerings is the deep-rooted belief that ageless human wisdom is available to guide us through anything we face.

During my recent experience of Sacred Fire’s LifeWays program I saw the beauty of looking at life as a circle rather than as a line, recognizing how elders are meant to contribute their earned wisdom to the youngest members of a community.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Have been spending this year getting healthy and a retreat to relax and focus would be wonderful. Crocker

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
