Fire: A Transformation Oracle

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How do you believe in radical change when history keeps repeating itself? In this session we will draw (metaphorically) on the element of fire as cleansing, transformation and life-sustaining energy. Using the "Archive of Fire" section of “M Archive: After the End of the World” as an oracle example, we will each get and give fire readings and learn how to create our own elemental oracles to guide us through/after the end of the worlds we know. You will leave the session ignited!
