Joshua Tree, California, April 20, 2015 (McKenzieNewsService.com) - The IgNight Fire Flow Conference brings an educational celebration of fire, yoga and flow arts to Joshua Tree, CA on May 8-10.
 
What is Flow?
Commonly rigged with wicks and lit on fire, flow tools can include hoops, poi, fans, staves, torches, wands and swords. The conference will also feature aerial acrobatics classes, archery, astronomy, yoga and lectures with spiritual teachers from all over the world. Beginning at noon Friday and ending at 5p.m. Sunday, more than 160 classes will go on during the daytime. A nightly spin jam session allows students to practice and develop their muscle memory. Check out LA Weekly’s photo essay on the first IgNight Conference.
 
Legendary Location
IgNight’s location is the Joshua Tree Retreat Center (59700 29 Palms Highway, Joshua Tree, CA), the oldest and largest center of its kind in the country. The buildings were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The retreat center’s elegant spaces house luxurious amenities: air-conditioned classrooms, a swimming pool and Jacuzzi and shaded meditation nooks to relax and reflect.
 
Most participants will sleep under the stars in the property’s ample camping space. The vast, clear desert skies are ideal for stargazing and the Black Rock Observatory will be giving nightly lectures and telescope demonstrations.
 
Michael Engel, lead organizer for IgNight, is a fire performer with almost 10 years in the flow arts community. As the president of the Scriptwriters Network, a 501c3 non-profit organization, Michael has organized hundreds of events helping over 20,000 people including inner city kids.
 
Since IgNight’s inception in 2012, the event has sold out and it is still the only event of its kind and size in southern California. Each time, the rapidly growing contingent of local flow artists transforms it into an epicenter of growth, play and magic.
 
“It’s for everyone to come and learn,” said Engel. “Ultimately, it’s an exercise in community building and community building is always a positive thing.”

 

IgNight’s leadership works closely alongside The San Bernardino Fire Department to make this, the safest event possible. All participants must attend a mandatory fire safety workshop, which grants them access to the fire spinning area.
 
In a letter to the IgNight team, San Bernardino County Fire Marshal Curtis Markloff  wrote, “You guys always amaze me on how safe you all are at your event. Thank you for organizing and putting on this event.  I hope that you keep coming back year after year.”
 
Environmental Responsibility
IgNight’s organizers enforce a strict Leave No Trace policy, meant to leave the location cleaner than before the event happened. IgNight is an alcohol-free event and illicit drugs are not allowed. This is vital to the event’s mission of providing a safe environment to learn, play and grow in the flow arts.

 

Admission is $150.00 and covers all three days of camping, workshops, shenanigans, and music from Friday at noon to Sunday at 5pm.
