The Sweatlodge Ceremony

Presented by Doug Sundling.

The cycle of birth and death fuels the flame of life. Nature is a process of seeking stability and equilibrium - of maintaining balance. A strategy for existence in such a world is movement through the cycles, built upon the four quarters of the directions, the elements, the seasons. Such a strategy is fundamental to traditional sweatlodges. Rather than emotional questioning that follows a reaction, one learns to take action with emotional clarity. The sweatlodge is a ceremony of cleansing, of renewal. It is a ceremony to ascertain balance. A sweatlodge ceremony is shaped by both the past and the present. Individual freedom in belief is woven with traditional ritual methods. Your spiritual sincerity is the most important thing you can bring to a sweatlodge. No Drugs or Alcohol; just the 4 Elements - Earth, Air, Fire, & Water. Number of participants and format for sweatlodge will be determined at the 11:30 AM Orientation Workshop on the day of the ceremony, Wednesday or Friday.
