    This is the launch of the wonderful second book by international speaker, writer and change-maker Mac Macartney, who will be here to read and then enrich the experience by talking about the elements contained within it.

    ‘The Children’s Fire’ is a book containing many interconnected elements such as the mysteries of a journey Mac made across Wales, the tribes of the British Isles and Mac‘s deeply personal experiences. It is also part of a larger story that is surfacing all around the world.

    The Children’s Fire conjures the field that Rumi spoke of and invites a gathering where we can once more listen to each other and remember that we are a tiny part of a story that extends backwards in time over millions of years. It seeks to sound the archaic language of soul and point the soft dreaming path that will take us home. We are the orphans of our own self-harming story, yet creation gave us the power to twine heart and mind in action. Hope is spoken of as essential to life, but beyond hope is the deep knowing of becoming and belonging. This book peers into the fear that lurks behind our feeble self-justifications and lays a kiss upon a fevered cheek that we may wake before it is too late.
