holding the space for deep inner transformation

as a firewoman I tend to the fire – central axis of the ritual and powerful element of transformation. in guarding the fire, I safeguard the ceremony’s space, as a clear and powerful space, into which people come with their life’s challenges, questions and fears. to find inspiration and clarity and to enable transformation to work its power.
