SWEAT LODGE

WOMEN’S SWEAT LODGE CEREMONIES:spacer

Receive healing, wisdom and  women’s teachings at our Sweat Lodge Ceremonies.

The Sweat Lodge is a place of purification and healing while reconnecting to the womb of Mother Earth.  It is good for those who need healing, guidance, purification and inspiration and for those who wish to re- connect to the Medicines of Great Spirit and Mother Earth.  The most effective way to prepare for a Sweat involves abstaining from alcohol and gathering your prayers and your intentions for two to three days before the ceremony. 

We will gather for a feast after each sweat to celebrate and share our experiences.

It is important to wear appropriate clothing during a Sweat:  We recommend wearing a cotton skirt and top and that you avoid wearing: jewelry, undergarments with metal hooks, and perfumes.

In order to participate in the Sweat, we request that each participant bring a tobacco offering, and a dish for the feast.  A gift or donation for the Fire Keeper is also appreciated.

TEACHINGS AND WORKSHOPS

 BRIDGE BETWEEN WORLDS: CHACARUNA 7 Initiations

A Chacaruna is a “Spiritual Leader” who has received the 7 Chacaruna rites, which form the fundamental foundation for true self-healing. They are often called upon to hold sacred space, lead prayers and conduct sacred ceremonies.

Chacaruna derives its origin from the Quechua word “chacana”, which means bridge and “runa” which means person. To be a “Chacaruna” is to be a person who is a bridge between worlds.

Receiving the 7 Chacaruna rites will ignite and awaken your divine blueprint and sleeping spirit so that you can attain higher levels of consciousness. You will learn to heal yourself, and bring healing to Mother Earth.  The rites will reweave you back into the cosmic grid, allowing you to develop your individual gifts, medicines, and talents.  You will be empowered to forge your own path and fulfill your soul destiny.

During this two-year 7 module Chacaruna program you will:

  • Learn to connect to your gifts and medicines
  • Learn how to honour and work with sacred medicines

Since the beginning of time we have been connected to water. Water has been essential for: creation, sustenance, sacred ceremonies & healing, transition to the afterlife/other worlds, agriculture, travel, and recreation. Water is a “shape shifter medicine” that can take the form of  ice, rain, steam, or torrent.  She is the great cleanser with the ability to clear the earth, sky and our body.

As a natural medicine of purification, water has been used as a means of removing uncleanliness, either ritual, moral or spiritual.
