Lodges – Nangilima
The Celtic sweat lodge is an ancient ceremony for purification, for healing, and for finding a deep peace and balance. No one knows when it started but there are remains in Scotland and Ireland from the time before the Roman Empire. The ceremony has been preserved orally, over generations as fairy tales and hidden among the mountains from unfriendly eyes.
The process is powerful, it leaves no one indifferent. It is used for physical and emotional healing. The sweat lodge is the place where we turn inward and seek answers about the meaning of life, about our purpose, about the way forward. It is the place we come to when we are tired, when we can no longer cope, when we need insights and new strength.
The process starts with the ritual of bringing the stones to the fire. Every stone carries a prayer, and the prayers weave the journey through the lodge. The stone people anchor us as we travel, and we bring them to the fire with respect and gratitude. Once the fire is burning there is time to rest before beginning personal preparation for the journey. The lodge leader will guide you in a meditation designed to bring you into a state of reflection over your life and the choices you have made. We do this as a circle, everyone taking part in the ceremony will be there.
When the stones are hot, we change into our lodge clothes. You wear whatever you are comfortable in. Then one by one the circle enters the lodge. What happens inside is difficult to describe. It is an altered state of being, magical, primal and at the same time very real. It is a process of transformation and healing. It is designed to bring you back into connection with the core of your being. It will give you the experience of living from your essence, your spirit. When you leave the lodge you will feel reborn. People describe a feeling of liberation, of coming back into balance. Our bodies become more open, our senses become rich and full and we find new freedom.
After the lodge we take time to sit around the fire and share something of the experience in the ceremony. Some of you will have powerful insights others will be in a deep, peaceful silence. This time of sharing is the last part of the lodge ceremony. Then we celebrate with good food and good company.
The event is an introduction to the Celtic sweat lodge. It is suitable for beginners and for those who are used to lodge ceremonies. There is room for 15-20 people in the lodge. NOTE! It is important that you book your place in advance so that we can guarantee that everyone who wants can get a place. The process is powerful and it is good if you have a quiet time before the ceremony and afterwards.
