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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
These are just some of the reasons people have become a Bonfire member.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
For anyone and everyone. This is a general group focused on personal growth and work with altered states of consciousness.

For therapists, guides, and other wellness providers to do integration and personal growth work among peers.
"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!"
All of our facilitators are deeply experienced, trauma-informed coaches, guides, or therapists who work to balance structure, support, and fun

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help make something work for you.
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.
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!
