Supporting the emergence of leaders through Earth wisdom.
What is the Fire Circle?
The Fire Circle is a space which brings together Elders from First Nations and other wisdom traditions with business leaders around the world.
By listening to great teachers, we can unlock the potential of our own relationship with Earth. This connection between Nature, business and spirituality allows each of us to contribute to the global economic transition that is transforming the ways we live and work. Like drops of rain forming a stream, our personal regeneration can lead to our planet's regeneration.
How we came into being?
In July 2020, when Matt gently challenged Lorna at an online event about the importance of businesses going beyond sustainability, who knew where it would lead. Shortly after he introduced Lorna to his adoptive Yolngu mum in northern Australia and two influential women, from very different worlds, instantly struck up an unexpected connection. Shruthi soon came into the confluence and these four pilgrims started navigating the system collapse together. Unified by a shared vision for deep transformation, they believe that anchoring ourselves in wisdom is the key to our efforts to “build back better”.
Starting with pilot gatherings in November 2020, the team is cultivating a diverse community of leaders who are all committed to working with deep humility, reverence and relationship with our Earth. We’re learning and growing with this project, curious of the direction it will take and holding it with lightness and dedication as it unfolds before us.
