Ancient Wisdom Rising returns to the sacred land of the Blue Deer Center in the Catskill Mountains of NY, August 7-9, 2015.

Sacred Fire Foundation's premiere event Ancient Wisdom Rising is an opportunity for meeting and dialogue between traditions and for others to experience ancient wisdom through the voices of the elders. From Friday night through Sunday supper you’ll enjoy an abundance of conversation and experiential learning around the sacred fire with a group of international elders.
