Why Join A "Campfire Crew"?

Campfire Crews are small groups of people that meet online every 2 weeks. With the support of a professional facilitator, you and your Campfire Crew will form a safe space for creative self-exploration, sharing, and learning.

Meet people who are on paths similar to your own

There’s a sense of connection we feel when we meet people who are open and conscious. Our Campfire Crews are for anyone who is open to doing inner work.

Discuss your experiences and grow from them

Share about your personal journey and receive optional feedback from others in your group. Learn how to use altered states to improve your everyday life.

Feel safe to share, ask questions, and be yourself

Our groups move at the speed of trust. Your facilitator will help create a space for vulnerability, and everything you share in your group is kept confidential.

Learn to see your conditioning and make changes

Altered states can help us to shed our conditioning, shame, and fear, and to look at ourselves honestly. We provide tools to support you through this process in a safe and informed way.

Dive deeper with optional readings & discussion prompts

In between meetings, you'll be given optional readings, exercises, and group discussion questions to help you stay engaged at a pace that feels right for you. Each meeting focuses on a new topic.

Receive support from experienced facilitators

All of our facilitators are vetted guides, coaches, or therapists who are deeply experienced with altered states and personal growth. They are here to provide guidance as you need it.

Who are "Campfire Crews" for?

These are just some of the reasons people have become a Bonfire member.

You want to understand what to do after a profound experience

Experiences with altered states can be empowering, awe-inspiring, confusing, and destabilizing –sometimes all at the same time. We bring our experiences and knowledge to help you determine what you need to move forward.

You want to look difficult things in the face and work through them, rather than avoiding them 

Altered states can help us to shed our conditioning, shame, and fear, and to look at shadows honestly. We provide tools and feedback to support you through this process in a safe and informed way.

You’re on a path of going deep into yourself and finding your truth

As we continue to peel back the layers of who we think we are, we often find new truths about ourselves that previously seemed impossible or unthinkable. We're here to support the process of "unfolding" that happens uniquely for you as you work with altered states.

You want to meet other like-minded people on their personal journeys

There’s a sense of connection we feel when we meet people who are open and conscious. Our Campfire Crews are for anyone who is open to doing inner work. Over the course of each meeting, your group's sense of trust and connection will continue to strengthen, creating a more powerful and supportive container.

You’re looking for a safe and supportive place to share & get feedback about your journeys

Share about your personal journey and receive feedback from others in your group. Learn how to use altered states to make changes in your everyday life, and draw inspiration from what others in the group, including your facilitator, have experienced and learned.

You are ready to access a deeper sense of self-love and presence

Ultimately, most of what keeps us disconnected from the bliss of being completely present in our lives is attachment to past disappointments and future desires. Many people find that altered states give them a taste of what it feels like to be completely open, present, and loving, and we're here to help you embody those feelings and states of being.

What our "Campfire Crew" members are saying...

"I joined Bonfire with the aim to learn about best practices for Psychedelic Therapy and personal growth.  I found within our very first meeting not only competent people, but the most warm, passionate and ethical souls to share wisdom, experience and learning with. Cannot wait for our next meeting and the next module!"

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during campfire crew meetings?

Meetings are made up of a combination of unstructured space for open sharing, and structured activities that are based on our curriulum. We adapt each meeting based on the evolving needs of the group, with the goal of helping each member grow in their own unique direction.

What if I can’t afford it?

Within each group, we have a limited number of scholarships available for people in low-income circumstances and/or marginalized groups. If this applies to you, please send an email to jack@bonfire.earth and we’ll help make something work for you.

What does your commitment to diversity and inclusion look like?

We are committed to creating safe spaces for everyone, including all members of the Queer/LGBTQQ2AI+ spectrum, people who identify as BIPOC, and members of other marginalized groups. This includes running different Campfire Crew groups that are specifically for members of these groups. We are always open to feedback on what we might be able to do to be more inclusive and accessible.

I am a wellness provider or therapist. Is this for me?

Absolutely - our groups are for people with all levels of experience. Many therapists and wellness providers find that our groups are a place to embody and practice what they learn in other training programs, in a less professional and more personal environment. We just ask that you show up with an openness to being led by other facilitators!

I have other questions. Can someone answer them for me?

Yes! Please email jack@bonfire.earth or book a call here.
