One Family - Epic-3

PowHERhouse Impact Media Announces FireCircle 2021 - ONE FAMILY

Wednesday, March 10th, 2021, PowHERhouse Impact Media Group officially announced registration is now open for FireCircle 2021 - ONE FAMILY. This three-fire gathering over three days, April 15th - 17th, brings together global leaders for an integrated inquiry session to harvest the collective wisdom in a virtual un-conference setting where there is no audience only conversationalists. 

FireCircle 2021 - ONE FAMILY asks the question: How do we live when we remember we are one family? This un-conference virtual fire gathering is the third in a series of twenty conversations leading up to 2030, bringing together Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders to explore the unanswerable questions of our time. 

Each FireCircle opens with an Artist of Impact performance and talk-back session and continues the following morning with a diverse perspective and multi-disciplinary co-created conversation that ignite facilitated small-group discussion pods. Each morning closes by harvesting the collective wisdom shared. The third day builds on the previous two with a morning focused on what we need to heal, integrate, and expand, and what this unique experience FireCircle is calling us to activate. 

FireCircle Spring 2020 - HUMAN SPIRIT, featuring conversationalists: Jeremy Valeriote, Dianne Whelan and Brittney Ramsey harvested the wisdom of: “Grief and Allow”.

FireCircle Fall 2020 - REVERENCE, featuring conversationalists: Andrea Menard, Dianne Whelan and Charles Eisenstein harvested the wisdom of: “Hollow Bone”,  “Behind the Shine” and “Pause”.

FireCircle Spring 2021 - ONE FAMILY, opens with Artist of Impact, Tina Overbury and features two mornings with conversationalists: Mark Brand, Ecko Aleck, James Gardiner, Nicollette Richer, Mark Marsolais-Nahwegahbow, and Willow and Ben Smith. The virtual fire and talking stick is hosted by the deliberately woven leadership team of Charlene SanJenko, Christina Benty, and Sharon Marshall with the support of a dozen experienced FireDancer facilitators.
