Farewell Bonfire at Enchantment

Aug 9, 2011 by

On the last evening of the Advanced Healing and Meditation seminar in Sedona, “Big Albert” arranged a bonfire at the beautiful Enchantment Resort with live music. Everyone gathered in a small clearing at the back of the property where the resort had a large fire pit. 8:30pm, just after dark, was a beautiful time – there were amazing shadows cast on the red rocks while at the same time the stars were coming out.

Half of the participants from the seminar attended, so the crowd was lively! I had never given  much thought to what a bonfire would be like for the firs time since I have experienced them at camps since I was a small child. However, there were dozens of people who had never been to a bonfire before!

There was dancing, chanting, story telling and lots of relaxed connection and conversation.

The amazing Jeff Hunter shared a beautiful story with several sacred songs from his Native America roots, lead us in a very cool repeating song that echoed off the canyon walls, and then in a circle dance – there were so many people that everyone formed 2 large circles around the fire. Just the way it worked out, James and I remained on the ground in the center by the fire while the circle dance was on and it was a very unique and powerful experience to be in the center and to witness each person’s energy and enthusiasm. No surprise, there are orbs throughout all of my photos of that evening!

It was a fabulous “grand finale”.
