I am raising funds to support my traineeship as a Firekeeper. This involves serving my community by hosting monthly Community Fires.

by Sylvia Anna Law Conte in Kirknewton, Scotland, United Kingdom

I have been attending Sacred Fire Community fires since 2017. 

They are a wonderful space to come together and celebrate the transitions of life and to build community in our local vicinity’s

welcoming people from all different ages and  backgrounds. 

These fires take place in hamlets all over the World, including: Australia, Canada, USA, Mexico, Ireland & Wales. 

There were none taking place in Scotland at the time, so I felt both compelled and inspired to bring them here- to my homeland and to share this wonderful presence for building community. 

I applied to become a Firekeeper- which is a life long commitment and will involve hosting Community Fires every month way into the future- in fact for the rest of my life! I was accepted and afterwards provided a sponsor who will travel to Scotland as a mentor throughout this process. Her name is Anne- she is wonderful and comes from Brighton & has hosted her own Community Fires for over 13 years. The funds will go towards helping Anne get here and to support the ongoing training process which will be hopefully be completed by the end of this year. I am very thankful for all your support.
