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 ‘tent’ 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.
