Sacred Sweat Lodge @ The Sacred Earth Sanctuary
Dec 11 @ 9:00 am

We need to rebuild our lodge and need at least 6 people who can arrive by 9am. For those who can help then please contact me. For those who are coming from afar, be here to help by 11am.

This is my favorite time of year to offer the gift of a sacred lodge to my community. So many people suffer from anxiety and sadness and; when we come together to share in our gratitude and oneness, those emotions become mute. Coming together in a lodge opens our hearts to the beauty that surrounds us and to that Great Mystery. Bring your songs, your prayers and a clear mind to share in the wonder.
