Join us for the 17th annual Brighid's Fire gathering at All World Acres. This exciting event will include live entertainment, main ritual, workshops, sweat lodge, drum circles, poetry reading, trade blanket, vendors, camping, and fun for the entire family.

 

Below are some of the the activities planned for this year. More will added as we get closer to event.

The Goddess Brighid, exalted one, is the patroness of healing, poetry, blacksmithing, and arts. She is also associated with fire. All aspects of fire symbolism, including light, candles, heat, warmth and sunrises are also related to this goddess. The Brighid's Fire festival is held at All World Acres in her honor. Activities will include;
Come Dance With Me with Niki:
Drum Circle Dancing for Non-Dancers - Come listen to the beat of the drums, feel the pull of the fire, and move your body. Niki will share ideas for getting in on the action without any complicated steps to memorize or the need to perform to someone else's standard. Dancers are encouraged to come and share their perspectives on their relationship with the Circle and their favorite ways to join the dance.
Crystal Bowl Sound Bath with Dru Ann.
Let the sound of the crystal singing bowls melt away all tension. Leave feeling refreshed.
Elements of Poetry with Ashley Rae:
Poetry is an art that expresses multiple layers of meaning, evoking emotion and expressing truth by both painting and composing with words. In this workshop we will practice collecting the elements through our observations and word choice, and write a poem together as a group, and start personal poems we can share at Bardic Circle should we so choose.
Becoming an Ego warrior with Dru Ann.
Learn how ego traps us but we can win in the end and overcome some of the most difficult challenges we have to face. You are stronger than you know!
Native American Drumming and Chanting with Ghosthawk.
Come experience the heartbeat of the Earth and learn to drum the Native way and sing the songs of the Earth. Connect in a way unlike others to the Earth and your brothers and sisters. Learn some songs of the Sweat Lodge and songs that can be used in Ritual. All drums and rattles are welcome or just join in with your voice. Some extra instruments will be available at the workshop.
Getting in touch with your inner self through Poetry with John Lago.
A fun light-hearted way to bring out your emotions and unexpressed thoughts, dreams and even fears. Find a quiet space where you will let the words guide you. Then read it back to yourself to gain some insight and you may share it with everyone too if you choose to do so.
