The Path Of The Firekeeper


Firekeeping is the art of manifesting in co-creation with all life.

It involves listening to inner knowledge and transforming anything that keeps you from your wholeness.

Our approach is practical and rooted in nature. We use the wisdom of the Wheel Of Growth and the Wheel Of Personal Values.

These tools connect you to the core of your inner leadership. This is the unique gift you offer to your tribe.
