What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 5 - 60 minutes
Our mission is to inspire, through creativity, positive life transformation in the hearts and minds of our audiences. We aspire to enrich the lives of our viewers by bringing to them the joy, beauty, and the excitement of Sacred Fire Dance! With our roots firmly planted into the earth, we pay homage to our ancestors. Our shows are in honor of the tribes that have fire danced before us.
Obsidian Butterfly is an experience of the present moment.
It is spontaneous creative self expression without definition.
A divine experience that can not be communicated with ordinary words.
It is a heart-felt, multi-dimensional experience available to those who forgo expectation.
It will blow your mind, open your eyes, and take you to new realms.
Based on love and truth it is a journey of the deepest dark to the brightest light. Under the wings of the Obsidian Butterfly, you can let go of that to which you cling so tightly, relax your eyes, and experience the bliss!
