All Night Sweat Lodge
The all night Sweat Lodge will begin at 2.00pm when we meet and begin to prepare the lodge and ourselves. We will enter the lodge 4 times during the night. The first time we go into the Sweat Lodge will be just before dark and we will leave the Lodge for the fourth time just after sunrise. So, we go enter in daylight and leave in daylight.
Each time we go into the Sweat Lodge, we will complete 1 round. I total, there are 4 rounds and there is a short period of time between the rounds to meditate and ponder on the work you are doing.
The Sweat Lodge has been practiced for thousands of years by many indigenous tribes and communities all around the world. Every tradition is different in how the Sweat Lodge is built and how the Sweat Lodge ceremony is conducted. It has many names too – Inipi, Temazcal, Sauna Sagrada. Indeed, there is a tradition of Sweat Lodges here in Ireland, although how they were used is mostly lost in history.
While there are many traditions and ways of completing the Sweat Lodge, this is, without a doubt, one of the most intense and deepest methods that you could undertake. It is rare to get an opportunity to do so much deep work on yourself.
For indigenous people, the Sweat Lodge represents the womb of Mother Earth. Participants will find a place for purification, liberation, letting go of old patterns and being reborn again. In the warm darkness they will get the opportunity to meet their inner wisdom through visions and prayers. Stepping out of the Sweat Lodge, innocent as a newborn.
The Sweat Lodge teaches us to surrender. To give up rigidity, resistance, judgment, arrogance, defensiveness and hostility. The small aspects of ourselves. Often the Sweat Lodge opens up a deep spiritual experience. It’s very common for participants to express that they felt a direct contact with their authentic-self.
In almost every sweat lodge at least one person will have a major psychological breakthrough. They can see aspects and persons in their life’s history in totally a new light.
It is common that several participants get a much deeper connection to their visions and goals in life. Understanding their priorities in a more holistic way.
This Sweat Lodge Ceremony will be facilitated by Stephen Brown who has been taught and initiated in the tradition of Richard Deertrack, roadman of the Pueblo Indians of Taos New Mexico. During this ceremony we will honour the profound and simple rituals of the Pueblos that he was taught.
The Sweat Lodge experience includes all meals and accommodation (although the beds are mainly for resting between rounds and for some sleep on Sunday morning.. Please get in touch if you would really like to attend but it is not financial possible. Money should not get in the way of anyone who wants to take part in this beautiful ceremony – together we will find a way 🙂
