Firekeeping Services

The Firekeeping service is a ceremonial offering that emphasizes the traditional role of fire in cultural practices. It involves maintaining a sacred fire, symbolizing guidance and purification, and serves as a central element in gatherings and ceremonies, fostering a connection to cultural roots and community spirit.
