Event Description

Sunfire Festival is a galactic inspired event brought to us through Jennifer Crystal Eve – the former event producer of the Star Knowledge Conferences in tandem with Chief Golden Light Eagle for the epic years of 2014 – 2020.

“It is our duty and honor to continue the legacy of what Chief Golden Light Eagle (Loren Zephier 1953-2021) planted for over 25 years as the “Star Knowledge” -- of which each of us holds a piece within our DNA.

Sunfire Fest is the new beginning of events that carry on what was instilled in me as a teacher of the star ways -- sanctioned by the initiations and ceremonies with my intercessor Chief Golden Light Eagle. “  --  Jennifer Crystal Eve

This event will open your curiosity to know your starry origins, attune you to your galactic DNA and original blueprint, place a glowing ember of new inspiration in your mind and awaken your heart to deeper love and connection to the earth, sky and stars.

The elements of the 5 Arts of Harmony are the core functions of this event.
Natural Medicine
Food & Farming


Ceremony is also a big part of this event!

Join us for indigenous wisdom -- Chiefs, Elders, Grandmothers, Medicine People of Turtle Island

Live music plus conscious DJ beats to rev us up for the ongoing performances with Fire Dancers, Aerialists, Artistic Performers and more. 

Natural medicines include yoga, meditation, sound healing, quantum healing technololgy, and plant medicine teachings.

Food & Farming includes teachings of sustainable farming, permaculture, and ceremony to shift our current food system.  Astrology includes teachings of the Star Altar and the 13-moon calendar as well as ceremony.

Also joining us are Star Knowledge Singers, Sundancers and Teachers of the Star Ways.

Light the fuse of your galactic soul and harmonize with the energies and the powers of the universe.  Sunfire Fest will be a total levelling up experience.


Tico Time Resort is the perfect venue and destination for Sunfire Fest with its high vibe location just south of Durango, Colorado - -where ‘the mountains meet the beach’ -- and the glorious sunshine of the summer.

Jen is a teacher of the 13-Moon Calendar, and former Star Knowledge Conference Event Coordinator, working in collaboration with the late Chief Golden Light Eagle (Loren Zephier, 1953-2021), for the epic years of 2014 through 2020.

'Sunfire Festival is my new beginning and is a sacred container supporting my mission to keep the legacy of the Star Teachings alive.  Many souls are awakening and “coming online”.  We all have piece of the puzzle and sacred remembrances of ancient wisdom.  NOW is the time to gather on the earth, under the sun and stars, in our physical presence, to share our gifts and do our part in this Ascension Window together.'


Lelie Carroll - Record Keeper and Historian of the Star Knowledge Teachings

Lelie has spent the past 24 years learning about the Symbols (Star Knowledge Teachings) and bringing in messages from the Grandmothers, the Spirit Realms and the Star Nations.

“I made a promise sealed with tobacco to Chief Golden Light Eagle that I would help him with his videos. We planned to upload them to Social Media and monetize the videos.” Golden Eagle took his Journey home on July 19, 2021.

I now understand why the Star Nations wanted to continue the teachings under the name ”Knowledge From The Stars” .

Brian Besco - Twisted Sage Studios

Brian Besco, of Twistedsage Studios, is known as a Master Builder of higher-dimensional, heart-based energy tools. He has ushered in several forgotten tools, techniques, and energy fields into remembrance through his family-based business and creations. For example, the Golden Fire of the Sacred Heart, the Chalice energetics, and more recently the Alchemist and Wisdom fields, which are all found in the Twistedsage Tensor Tools. These newer tools allow the Soul to distill light and information from lifetimes, while uncreating creation which no longer serves.

 Brian teaches workshops, where the soul turns experience into Wisdom and Light, clearing entire lifetimes of trauma, and for more than just the human here on Earth. In 2011 Brian and his sister Brenda, and Thoth, created an updated MerKaBa Activation, assisting thousands of people in reactivating their MerKaBa. Brian is also a master Grid Worker, who with the assistance of Gaia, has cleared several ancient and nonbeneficial grid systems all over the planet, and has established several new grid systems, such as the Ascension Grid.
