The fire of peace ritual
With the ritual of the fire of the tribe of the tribe HOPI, Anna Mareschova met for the first time in Czech Republic on 6.6. 2015 in the center In Kamenne ryby, Chrustenice near Beroun, where it was first made by Alicia Hamm in 2007.
Together with the ritual, there was a piece of ash from the former fire where Alicia participated in various places of our Mother Earth, as a symbol of unification of all prayers for peace and harmony. There, Sabine took a little bit of that ashes and brought it to us…. Each month on the same day this ritual is performed in various places of the world – from the northern countries to the Himalayas and that is why we meet here to develop this tradition. The fire falls in the hearth in the middle of two stone circles. The wounded woman’s wounds on the four sides of the world begin with the one in the east. When the fire comes on, the woman standing in the east starts her plea – silent, loud, with or without words, the song …. when she ends up preaching the word on the left. Everyone puts their gift in the fire, – sage, tobacco etc… The fire is kept, and the new wood is not added. We stay with her until the last coal is extinguished. Heavy ash has healing properties, later we mix it with ashes from previous fire and can bring some home at least ….. This time we will make a ritual on the island of Brač on Gea Viva site. All are welcome 🙂
The ritual is lead by Anna Mareschova. Information and registration: firstname.lastname@example.org, 099 749 37 11

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!
Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.
BY SEA ///
There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.
First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.
Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!
BY AIR ///
Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač Deluxe, Rent a Motorino or M&B rent.
