Sweat lodges

“Through the connection with the elements, we can feel ourselves in our genuineness.”

Sweat lodge – womb of Mother Earth
“We sit in the darkness, on the Earth, surrounded by the heat of glowing stones and water vapor. By connecting with the elements, we can feel ourselves in our original essence. We pray with open hearts and allow ourselves to be cleansed all the way down into the deep layers of our being. Crawling on all fours, we leave the sweat lodge like newborns and stretch ourselves upwards toward the sky, grateful for our life and for all life: mitakuye oyasin – for all that is.”
