SWEATLODGE

IN CONNECTION WITH MOTHER NATURE

NEXT SWEATLODGE

I AM LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME IN NATURE FOR ME AND MY SWEATLODGE

 

The sweatlodge ceremony is an invitation for all women, men and children who enjoy BEING in nature, feeling the earth under their feet, connecting with the elements and thus with themselves, other people and the space.

I lead the sweat lodge ceremony in a "Temazcal" built from hazel rods. The term "Temazcal" is a mesoamerican term for herbal steam bath, which was used for physical and spiritual cleansing. In Nahuatl (Aztek) "Temaz" means "bath" and "Calli" means "house". I have been learning how to lead such a ceremony for more than 9 years as a moon dancer* with my beloved teacher and grandmother Ana, Itzpapalotl in Puriscal, Costa Rica and I am very happy to share this connection with Mother Earth and the appreciation of all elements.

Be welcome whether young or old, with or without previous knowledge, for an experience in which you may simply BE how and who you are.

*The moon dance, the legacy of an ancient tradition, is a four-day ritual in which women come together in a ceremonial circle for four nights to pray for the good of humanity, to feel the feminine essence within them, and to purge both their bodies and wombs of generations of oppression and neglect.
