The Queenscliff Sacred Fire Community holds monthly fires in the beautiful coastal village of Queenscliff, on the Bellarine Peninsula.  Our fires are hosted by Bruce Sherriff, who is an initiated Firekeeper in the tradition of The Sacred Fire Community.

There are only 3 other initiated Firekeepers in Australia at this time. One in Perth and two in Alice Springs. Firekeepers must go through a long mentor-ship with another Firekeeper and then complete their training in Mexico before initiation. Once initiated it is a life long commitment to the tradition of the Sacred Fire and to the local community.

Firekeepers have always been a part of all the old traditions. Gathering around a Fire to share our concerns and differences with a Firekeeper to hold the space is something that is really valuable and is needed in these modern times.

Please feel free to contact us if this interests you in any way.
