Traditional Sweat Lodge CeremoniesIn Indigenous culture, the sweat lodge empowers the natural elements of our being with the four elements of water, air, fire, and earth. Each element brings a quality of balance to our lives through prayer and purification. As you participate in the ceremony, you are purified with breathing, meditating, and in the sharing of words, prayers, songs, and storytelling.
A lodge ceremony is a gentle and caring approach to the cleansing of your mind, body, and spirit. Through the experience, your body is cleansed of the toxins within your body, which aids in the de-stressing of your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. The non-threatening, non-imposing, and safe environment allows you to seek your greater power with all cultures.
