There was a sweat on September 25 at 4:00 at a sacred site in Bumpass, VA.
Unfortunately, we only had a total of 10 people for the sweat (We sure were hoping for more). It was very emotional and refreshing at the same time.
Tammy and I were basically exhausted before we went in, but gained strength because of the love and power of the event.
Briana did wonderful and had an experience every person should have at least once in their life.
What goes on at a sweat?
The Medicine woman will guide us in the sacred Sweat Lodge Purification Ceremony, the traditional way of cleansing body, mind, and spirit. By sweat and prayer, we clean our bodies of toxins, our minds of negativities, and heighten our spirits -- come into a balanced relationship with ourselves, the Earth, and everything that surrounds us.
