The sweatlodge is a ceremony of letting go. Sitting in the dark, in the heat, surrounded by fellow companions, there are no trappings of the modern world to bind you. Song, silence, sweat. It is a place for reflection, of enquiry into your own inner world, release of physical tension and emotional pain. It is also a place for joy, friendship, and celebration. The sweatlodge can be used as a catalyst for change, to offer prayers and support, to reconfirm your commitment to that which is important to you, or as a tool for self discovery. After the sweatlodge there is often a feeling of rejuvenation, of being detoxed, of relaxation, of euphoria. From difficult times to times of joy, the sweatlodge can be a tool that helps you trust and navigate the process of life and can leave you feeling rejuvenated.
