That’s me on the right last Saturday night. I was west of Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia, beautiful country, with three friends.

Fire circles are almost as old as humanity, the central gathering place. This is where people come to talk through the day, tell stories, and imagine what might be possible just as we were imagining what might come to be.

We four gathered specifically to envision how we might create a special place for people to come and learn from Nature through complete sensorial immersion.

How might you bring family, friends, or colleagues together this week to imagine something special?


“…we need today more than ever to gather around ritual fires to transcend the old metanarratives and create new stories that are inclusive, just, aspirational, and inspirational. Our world requires now, more than ever, a potent medicine to re-enchant our lives.” – Rick Stone
