Sweat Lodge

The Sweat Lodge is a purification ceremony, it is a place to cleanse and connect with nature, the elements and the spirit. The sweat lodge is a covered dome created out of bent willow saplings. During the sweat lodge hot volcanic stones are placed in a central pit in the dome and dowsed with water and

herbs, creating a therapeutic steam. The combination of heat and steam is incredibly cleansing and has many health benefits. Mentally, emotionally and spiritually this also acts as a catalyst, and, as it gets hotter in the sweat lodge, issues may be brought to light which we are able to see with more clarity bringing us a greater level of insight into who we really are. This process is incredibly beneficial and helps us to review our lives on all levels; our relationship with ourselves, our friends and family and with the greater world. Through the lodge we are able to find our centre and balance, enabling us to approach our lives in an honest and courageous way.
At Turtle Lodge we draw inspiration from many traditions, but have our roots in the Mayan tradition of “temescals”(sweat lodges). We use knowledge from many sources, but the main source is the inner primordial knowledge and wisdom which exists within us all. The Sweat Lodge is very much a spontaneous event, but generally involves story telling, visualisation, meditation, singing and chanting.The duration of the lodge does vary, but it usually lasts between 3 and 4 hours which is broken up into ‘rounds’ of approximately 20 - 30 minutes. After the sweat lodge, everyone shares food around the fire (baked potatoes, Veg Curry or similar and hot drinks are included). It is important to have this period of relaxation after the lodge.

What you need to bring – 2 towels (one for sitting on in the lodge and one to dry yourself with afterwards) swimsuit or equivalent (to wear in the lodge) warm clothing for afterwards food/drink to share with everyone around the fire after the lodge (no alcohol please) flowers/white candles/incense for the altar (optional) drinking water to share in the lodge

We recommend that you have a restful evening prior to the lodge and that you keep the evening after the lodge completely free of engagements.
We also ask that all mobile phones be switched off.

Cost for Sweat Lodge - £60
