Odyssey of the 8th Fire: A Living Metaphor for our Collective Hejira
Odyssey of the 8th Fire is the true saga of an epic pilgrimage. This Odyssey takes place not between Greece and Turkey, but rather across Turtle Island (North America) from the Eastern Door of the Atlantic Ocean to the Western Gate of the Pacific Ocean. The pilgrims who walked the 3,500 miles represented the many races and religions of the world, in direct response to the ancient Algonquin Indian teaching of the Seven Fires, and the Hopi Indian teachings about the House of Mica (UN Headquarters). As the pilgrims made their way from east to west, they visited with dozens of learned elders, from all the world’s spiritual traditions, who shared teachings necessary to live in harmony with each other and the earth. This true story, filled with both classical and contemporary references, serves as a living metaphor for our collective journey from an old time to a new time in world history.
