The Home Project is about making a good home for ancient wisdom traditions and the ancient wisdom keepers, who are the holders of those traditions. These traditions were given to our ancestors and have helped us get along with the world, have a good life, survive, and thrive, down to the many, many, many years of hard times, and better times. Under today’s conditions, some of these traditional teachings and practices don’t really have a home anymore. That’s not a very good situation. Not for the tradition holders, or for the people who could benefit from having contact with those traditional teachings and practices, which are just as relevant today as they ever were. So, one of the questions is, "Where does one go to have contact with that? To learn and to grow from those noble ancient traditions?"
Learn how the season of Fall, the time of letting go and inspiration, is effecting you now.
"Death and decomposition has cleared space for new growth when the cycle of birth returns. And, now the shining silver trunks and limbs of the trees stand as glorious structures pointing to the clear open sky. The realm of the heavens is revealed and given its natural place of honor. There is a sense of appreciation for the beauty of what once flourished and what jewels of life still remain. There is sense of awe and inspiration – a welcome freshness in the air."
BDC: What originally drew you to working with the Sacred Fire Foundation?
Cindy: I was telling someone the other day that it is really just a love of my life. There’s something so important about the work of the Foundation that feels life-giving at this time, and so redemptive. I was talking to some people recently about some of the work we’ve been doing, especially around Ancient Wisdom Rising (AWR) and the poignancy of working with the elders and the messages that they’re bringing forth to us. And the people had tears streaming down their cheeks.
