Cambrian lights Sacred Fire

June 5, 2013

Sudbury’s Cambrian College has erected the Sacred Fire Arbour and celebrated the lighting of the fire with sunrise and awakening ceremonies. The Arbour is meant to be a place where people of all cultures can connect with each other and with their cultures; it offers a sacred place where staff, students, and community members can “honour traditions that support health and well-being.” The Arbour will also be used in the future as a location for prayers, teachings, and ceremonies. It is thought that the Arbour will help students ease the transition away from families and home communities. The log structure has a multicoloured roof that symbolizes the 4 colours of the medicine wheel. Cambrian News Release | Sudbury Star
