Flame Festival is about gathering
together for a weekend of fun in the beautiful Cherokee farms to grow and
learn and share what we know so that we can all find that deeper level of who we are together. We’ve got classes during the day. We have instructors from all over the world coming in and all the classes are amazing. And then at night we all gathered in a fire circle and we just play for all sorts of hours. Until sunrise sometimes. It’s just a beautiful weekend of camping and learning, and enjoying each other. We started in 2011 and we did not have international instructors back then. It was a group of 30 to 50 people. A lot of people were locals, some of them made a pretty far trek from up north. We just started coming together to bring this idea about FLAME together and seeing what we could do to make it happen. [FLAME Festival] was started by Ky Lee and he started in 2011 and he ran it up until the end of 2014. The first time I came here it was 2012 and I just remember having this, like, it’s sort of like an itch, ya know like a deep level itch that you just grow and as I was driving home I was thinking about it I was like, you know what? I need to make this happen. I need to help make sure that this thing continues in that it continues to grow in the way
that it should and now it’s just the best, the best kind of itch to scratch. To me, flow is finding that balance between the work that you’ve put
in to grow a skill while bringing it forth in a way that’s true to the way
you’re trying to express it. It’s that balance between the combined effort of what you’ve done and the way in which you want to express and
present yourself. You guys can check out flamefestival.com. We’re also at
