Registration for Phoenix Fire will open at 10 am on Thursday, August 9. Your registration includes dinner on Thursday, and we hope you will plan to arrive by 6 pm to share dinner with everyone. We strongly request that everyone plan your arrival so you can attend the Opening Circle at 7:30 pm. This will be our opportunity to look around the circle and see who has come together for the magical journey of Phoenix Fire!
A workshop schedule with teacher bios will be posted in July. We are looking forward to a fabulous selection of workshops from both established teachers and other members of our community, some of whom may be stepping out to teach for the first time. All registrants are invited to consider what you might have to offer and to submit a workshop proposal. There are a limited number of slots available, so proposals will be screened by the program committee, with the goal of creating a varied schedule of workshops covering all the modalities of drumming, dance and movement, voice, and transformation at the fire circle.
The Fire Circle will begin at 11 pm each night (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday) with a fire-lighting ritual. Each ritual will be facilitated by one of the clans of our tribe. Are you part of a local clan who might be interested in doing this next year? If so, let us know!
At sunrise on Sunday morning, after the circle closes, we will have breakfast together. Closing Circle for the gathering will be held at noon on Sunday and the rest of the day is dedicated to tear-down. There will be no meetings held after Closing Circle and you can take your time packing up and leaving the site on Sunday. We look forward to having everyone lend a hand in packing up the shared spaces.
A small number of people will stay until Monday to complete clean-up and pack-out. If you are available and interested to help with that, please let the registrar know at firstname.lastname@example.org .
