September 29, 2021 –
To help us prepare our hearts, minds, and spirits for The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation next week, the people St.Amant supports, staff, and volunteers are invited to a sacred fire at the Spirit Cottage on Wednesday, September 29th.
The day will begin with a ceremony at approximately 7:30 am on the 29th. The fire will remain lit until 4:30 pm. We are each invited to the morning ceremony and/or to visit the fire at a time that suits us best during the day. Additional details about how we can prepare and participate will be provided later this week.
Each person attending will be asked to provide a vaccination card to be scanned and ID for verification.
Precautions will be in place on the day to ensure safe distancing and to monitor our group size around the fire site at any one time.
If people that you support would like to invite a family member to attend with them, they are welcome to do so.
People we support who are interested in taking on the role of Fire Keeper at any time during the day are invited to contact me and view and listen to this video. White Eagle, who offers the teaching in the video, will once again be present on the 29th to support people in that role.
May you each create some peace in the evening ahead...
