Events with BrightFlame 



BrightFlame is thrilled to join Starhawk again to offer Feeding the Sacred Spark in NYC on Feb 24th. Magic and enCOURAGEment for these troubled times--the world needs each of us. Sign up for BrightFlame's newsletter to be the first to know of  new offerings and special advanced pricing.

Feeding the Sacred Spark

In these troubled times, our bright hopes can easily get buried under the sleet of outrage, fatigue and despair. Yet we desperately need to keep alive the spark of resistance--and more: of vision for a better world and determination to create it.

What stories are we telling and being told, about ourselves, about the world, about what is possible? In this one-day workshop, we'll reframe them, and look for the allies--spiritual and mundane--who will offer enCOURAGEment and help us transform the world through our visions and actions. We'll use the tools of magic--ritual, chanting, storytelling, meditation and trance--to feed our creativity and strengthen our will.

This workshop is perfect for Pagans and non-Pagans, activists, artists and writers, and anyone who wants to recharge and stand in their power. The world needs each of us. It's time to create the just, regenerating world where we all thrive.

This will sell out in advance, register soon (early bird $58 ends 1/24). For more info and to register:

BrightFlame joined Starhawk to offer Making Rituals That Matter in NYC and Philadelphia. What a ritual we co-created with the group! Both sessions sold out as anticipated. Join BrightFlame's email list (see the Contact link at bottom) to be the first to know of  new offerings.

Making Rituals That Matter

How do we bring magic and myth into the actions that address the crisis of our time?  How do we take our spiritual work out into the world in embodied, compassionate, and active ways?   How do we create rituals that can bridge barriers, inspire and support social change, and help us heal and renew our hope when things get tough? 

Whether experienced or new to priest/essing, join us to take your next steps towards creating tight, effective rituals that flow. We’ll explore the tools of ritualour bodies, our voices, movement, trance, and story-weaving—to deepen our craft.  We’ll learn how to listen deeply to the needs in our homes, workplaces and communities, how to craft intentions that lead to powerful magic, and how to create inclusive, empowering ritual language.  Out of our collective wisdom, we’ll weave a ritual that leads to justice and liberation.

Starhawk and BrightFlame offered  Stories for the Future in NYC and Philadelphia in February 2016. Assure you get on BrightFlame's email list to be the first to know about future events. They often fill up in advance.


Stories for the Future

Stories shape our imagination and our ideas of the possible.  How can we use the power of story to help us envision a positive future, and inspire people to want to work towards it?  Stir in a little magic--the art of shaping and shifting consciousness, of connecting with the deep creative energies of nature, bending time and opening awareness.  We'll explore our ancestral and personal stories, and the day will culminate in a powerful ritual of collective myth creation.

BrightFlame is helping create a sustainable Reclaiming community in NYC. We gather twice a month and welcome you to join us. Watch for future events--and please "like" BrightFlame's page on facebook which will stay more up to date than this website. And you'll find her writing there--a good place to comment and stay in touch!

We encourage and welcome our Occupy friends to join us at all events—for healing, recharging, and for learning energetic techniques to expand your activism.

Again, "Like" BrightFlame's Page for latest info: www.facebook.com/brightflame.1

If you are not familiar with Reclaiming, we suggest Starhawk's article on the tradition: www.reclaiming.org/about/directions/definition.html

Blessed Be!
