Bright Fire Creativity Mini-Retreat

Guided by Martha Gallagher, Bright Fire is an experiential mini-retreat, using diverse creative explorations to more deeply foster openness and access to our innate creativity. We will celebrate, explore and feed our creative fires with music, meditation, circle singing, authentic dance and poetry creation.

Inspired by the Celtic Wheel of the Year, with May beginning with Beltane, meaning “bright fire,” marking the starting point of Summer. The energies of this time are ones of fertility, light, growth & creativity. Let us light our fires of creativity and grow our fertile imaginations to help fill and feed the world with beauty, love and light!

Details and registration are HERE.

Martha Gallagher, Bright Fire retreat guide, is a professional musician (harp, voice), authentic dance facilitator, blessing creation guide and joy mentor. She weaves together the essence of all of these together in Bright Fire.
