New film shares teachings of the 8th Fire

“In our troubled world, we desperately need a vision that can inspire us to greatness. This vision will be a recovery of the wisdom, sanity, and hope represented in The 8th Fire.”

– Larry Dossey, MD

As readers of this blog know, last year I authored the true, epic saga of a walking pilgrimage across North America. The story is called “Odyssey of the 8th Fire,” and it is available in full at

In recent weeks I have had the honor of becoming acquainted with Cindy Pickard of Texas. She has produced an absolutely wonderful 1-hour film on a theme similar to the saga. Her film is entitled “The 8th Fire – One Earth – One Whole Circle – Again.”

The teachings of the 8th fire are among the many ancient prophecies that refer to the year 2012 and the years directly preceding it…

To the Aztecs this is the time of the 6th sun, a time of transformation and the creation of a new race,

To the Mayans it is the end of time as we know it,

To the Incas it is the time of meeting ourselves again.

In Egypt, according to the Great Pyramid the present time cycle ends in the year 2012.

The calendars of both the Mayans and the Cherokee end in 2012.

Dave Courchene Jr., whose traditional name means “Leading Earth Man,” is an Elder and spiritual advisor from the Anishnabe, Eagle Clan. Descended from a long line of chiefs and leaders of his people, he felt “Compelled by forces beyond his control” to quit his job as an educator and go on a ceremonial expedition of peace around the world.

Through his dreams, and visions, the experiences of others who have accompanied him on his journey and the words of the visionaries–past and present, he shares the possibilities of “The 8th Fire.” It is a vision of hope..for the future…for the Earth…for the children

The one-hour film “The 8th Fire” is available on DVD. For more information see
