A Journey into the Sacred Fire of Your Life
September 7 – October 11, 2017
“We are each at all times a creative flame of sacred presence. Incarnation is not a journey away from this fire; it is a journey into it.” ––David Spangler
For most of us, spirituality is something we divorce from our everyday lives. It can be relegated to a deep unspoken place in the inner recesses of our minds and hearts. It might be brought out for holidays, or for those sacred days decreed by a tradition. But what about the rest of the days of the year? What about the spirit which lives and breathes at the center of ourselves?
This class is an exploration of what is at the heart of incarnation. Everything else that Incarnational Spirituality has to offer stems from this one reality, that we are sacred beings in embodiment and our physical world self is as sacred and as valued as the non-physical, transcendent aspects of ourselves.
Journey Into Fire outlines a practical way to engage with the sacredness of our everyday selves and everyday lives. Using the book of the same name as our launch pad, we will share together an exploration of the nature of that sacredness and how it is expressed and how it is lived in our everyday selves.
A Journey Into the Sacred Fire of our Life will be held on our new education website, Lorian Education. Participants will have ongoing access to class materials, activities and discussion areas as part of your personal Learning Library. Additionally there will be three live webinars (which will also be recorded and available for download as part of class materials.)

I love leading this class. It gently introduces people to a new kind of relationship with themselves, to an understanding of the depth and breadth of their soul’s partnership with the earth. The kind of creative opening this provides, a relaxing of the way we interact with the world which allows more movement, brings more fluidity, more joy, and definitely more capacity to love into our lives. The class format provides a wonderful sense of community as we explore together new perspectives.
