Description:  A sweat or purification lodge has been a part of many traditional cultures around the world. While the purification certainly occurs on a physical level with a release of toxins with perspiration, the lodge ritual is intended to support us in releasing mental, emotional and spiritual accumulations to make room for new inspirations, commitments and creativity.

You will need to bring two towels, T-shirt and shorts to wear inside the lodge, a clean change of clothes, water bottle, drum or percussion item and a small spiritual icon that is important to you to place outside of the lodge. Please bring a dish to share for the potluck following the ceremony. Depending on the number of participants, the event will usually wind up around 11pm. We are limited to 12 participants.

If you are new to Samara and/or have never taken part in a lodge before please contact Jim prior to registering. If you would like to participate in the evening but prefer not to sweat this time, you are welcome to come and support the participants and assist in tending the fire. We would ask that you stay for the entire evening, and also bring a dish for the potluck.

The fee for the evening is by donation. Unless there are storms that night we will sweat rain or shine
