During this powerful time of the year when the veil between this world and the world of spirit is thin, our ancestors can be called on to guide us, celebrate with us, and be remembered. Through ceremony, we will travel to connect and commune with our loved ones.
This journey will take place over two days with several sacred encounters:
Our journey begins Friday night with Aztec/Mexica ceremonial dance as we open the weekend in song and dance with Danza Ceremonial Nashville. We will gather around the sacred fire to create space for remembrance, healing, and joy with our ancestors. Together, we will build our community altar to honor our ancestors. The evening culminates with a Firewalk Ceremony.
We will gather to challenge our limiting beliefs, face our fears, set our intent for the new year and WALK ON FIRE.
Firewalking is an ancient ritual that has existed for thousands of years. Practiced by different people around the world, it has roots in many different cultures. Firewalking is a powerful tool to help you overcome obstacles in your life and focus your energy to create the life of your dreams. The experience empowers you to step through your fears and limiting beliefs supporting you in becoming the person you want to be.
We continue our journey on Saturday with Toltec wisdom, sacred journey breathwork, shrine-making, ancestral healing meditation, and music.
These are highly experiential and transformative processes that inspires individuals to remember and reconnect with their souls. These ways honor and blend the timeless wisdom of ancient traditions with the emerging new paradigm methods of healing and teaching. They functions as a bridge between these two worlds honoring the best of both while creating a bridge for body, mind, heart, and spirit.
Join us on a sacred journey to create community, connection, and remembrance through song, dance, breathwork, cacao ceremony, and more.

"It is has been a great honor to bring my Celtic heritage through Wheel of the Year celebrations to my tribe the last 7 years. Working with Freedom Folk and Soul and weaving my Celtic celebration of Samhain into their annual ancestral work with Dia de Los Muertos has added a beautiful component into this sacred time of the year. I hope you will join us in this community celebration!"
“Just a thin veil, between this world And that world of beauty and love, Just a thin veil that hides the view of our Spirit loved ones above!”
