About Sweat Lodge

Sweat Lodge is one of the most powerful ceremonies that exists to mankind on the basis that it draws on power from all 5 Natural Elements (Air, Fire, Water, Earth & Spirit) and engages all aspects of the Human (Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual). 
It can be Healing, Purifying or Manifesting depending on the Theme and Intention behind It.

“I went for spiritual renewal and experienced incredible inner healing. It was magical!

Gay is a true mystic and devoted spiritual guide “  ~ JMS

A low circular frame is created and covered with blankets to retain heat and we all enter this ‘space’ and sit in sacred circle.  Opposite this, a firepit heats volcanic rocks, which are gradually brought into the sweat lodge and put in a central pit then sprinkled with water to create steam which purifies us like a sauna.  We invite our Spirit Guides to join us in the Lodge, honouring their presence with a welcoming chant and then we each have the opportunity to speak directly to Spirit around the Circle asking for healing, release of what no longer serves us or fulfilment of dreams we might have. There are four rounds and the door is opened in between each to allow cool air to circulate.  It is a deeply powerful & immersive experience.

If we open, engage and ‘allow’ in Sweat Lodge there is a magical quality which opens to us - either within the Lodge or afterwards when our life flows in beautiful ways it hasn’t before. 

It is an ancient tradition performed by all indigenous cultures in the past, but is now mainly a part of Native American and First Nations  culture but is now popular as a ‘remembered’ practice in Europe and the USA. It is not something to enter into lightly or without full understanding of the principles behind Sweat Lodge and the more you prepare the more you will achieve through participation. 

Next Sweat: Full Moon Sacred Sweat
Sun 24th March from 6pm - 7pm £15

at Watershed Sauna, ​East Beach, Findhorn

Heading 5

In this modified Sweat Lodge we work deeply with the Elements to commune with Spirit supported by the presence of Grandmother Moon.  The setting is stunning! The sauna is perched on the ridge at the Findhorn end of East Beach with views overlooking the sea towards The Black Isle.

 

We will move into sacred space together before we enter and then invoke the presence of Spirit. We sing to honour their presence and we, each in turn, make prayers of release, healing and manifesting not only for ourselves but for others. There will be two rounds in this first instance with the opportunity for a cool off either in the sea or from a cooling bucket of water in between the rounds.

 

I have been a trained Lakota Lodge Pourer for 15 years and my prime concern is safety and integrity when holding space within.  Once registered, you will receive notes to help you understand the meaning of a Sacred Sweat and to support your journey of preparation.
