Fire is the very heart and essence of life. It is phenomena rather than substance that is revealed, seen and touched in ways of risk and ritual. Fire activity when placed in a ceremonial aspect expands to encompass the spirit as well as the body and mind. By summoning the power of the flame to flow through us, the flame strengthens and transforms our spirit.
“We make the hive. They bring the honey. We create just enough order so that this spontaneous naturally occurring process called culture, which is born of the interactions of people that no one can plan and no one can control, will begin to happen.”
— Larry Harvey, 1997
