    Full description of the concept

    Welcome to the Wild Sacred Fire!

    The Fire is the most ancient symbol of warmth and connection, older than any religion or spiritual tradition. We will create a Fire burning constantly throughout the Borderland, connecting us to the sacredness of nature and our human experience. Each and every Borderling brings something beautiful in themselves to the warmth and light of the Fire, a place to bring in joy, and remember what is primitive, wild and sacred within us.

    Together, we will offer:

    MORNING rune yoga around the fire, where you can stretch, relax, and contact your Scandinavian ancestral energies.

    EVENING fire ceremonies where you can burn the darkness away, release unwanted habits, make new friends and bring in joy and abundance for the coming year.

    NIGHT TIME communal silence, firelight storytelling, warm cacao, songs, and sharings of wild food, mysterious essential oils, rune divination and the secrets of plant, earth and weather magic.

    COMMUNAL FIRE OFFERING at the main Burn. During the week, we will create a giant despacho together (traditional fire offering) which every Borderling can add their wishes, offerings and intentions to. We will place it as an offering on the main Burn, using the energy of the big fire to help bring in what Borderlings want in the coming year.

    The fire will be burning every morning, evening and night throughout Borderland and will be attended by a fire keeper. We will create a natural altar area, make rain-proof shelters around the fire and keep candles burning day and night to ensure the flames stay alive continuously. We will also have warm cacao and foraged wild foods available for Borderlings to try.

    The Sacred Fire will be located near the Sanctuary, in a quiet area with the lowest possible audio footprint.

    Remark: There is also a Camp called "The Sacred Fire [Camp]" and this camp will consist of people who are interested in contributing to the service The Wild Sacred Fire at Borderland. For those Borderlings who wishes to support the dream The Sacred Fire, please note that The Camp "The Sacred Fire" will not take any funds from the service "The Wild Sacred Fire". The camp will be self-sufficient, money-wise, food-wise and in any other manner (by means of a regular camp fee etc).

    About the group/Artist

    The Sacred Fire Camp provides the service The Wild Sacred Fire to The Borderland 2018. We are a bunch of diverse people who will run the Wild Sacred Fire with fire ceremonies, yoga, cacao and storytelling around the fire and periods of silence.

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    Every Borderling is extremely welcome to contribute whatever he/she feels like that fits the spirit and theme of The Wild Sacred Fire. Se above under the full description of concept for examples.

    We are applying for the costs of Cacao which will be an integral part of the Cacao ceremonies we wish to hold. We cannot really collaborate around sharing the costs for cacao since it will all be consumed in The Wild Sacred Fire. The cacao is clearly depicted in the budget.

    What is this?

    Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. The Dreams Platform is a place where participants share their dreams.

      Details

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? No

    • Will there be light? Yes, mainly from the fire itself, we are also considering lanterns. But probably no electricity from the mains.

    • Safety implications When the fire is burning there will have to be a sober fire keeper that will keep at constant eye on the fire and the people around the fire. Further, the entire area will be free from alcohol consumption and guests will be invited to keep pretty calm (even though the name of service is the Wild Sacred Fire). We will also observe the rule that fire needs to be away from tents and we will have means of extinguishing the fire available.

    • What is your audio footprint? On the contrary, we will have a very low audio level, we will have some wild ceremonies, although during the times when Borderland is wild, we will be less wild and also work together with The Sanctuary to accepts guest from there who needs calm.
