Sweatlodge from Old to New

December 31, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - January 1, 2022 @ 3:30 am


Sacred Sweatlodge from Old to New
from Friday 31 December 2021
to Friday 1 January 2021

It is special and magical to celebrate the transition to the new year in the warm bed of a sweat lodge.

2022 is a powerful 6 master year. The number 6 refers to the connection of opposites. Light and Dark, Male and Female, Fire and Water, Above and Below, Sky and Earth. Connecting the Four Elements and Yourself in the Center, and the Universe outside you. Connecting the secrets of Life. A year to engage and challenge you to listen even more to your heart and what truly, genuine is yours, what ego is and what resonates with your soul and heart. 6 is also a symbol of Venus, the planet/Goddess related to love, fertility, intuition, true feminine identity, power and harmony.

We would like to invite you to start this special year close to yourself and conscious minded  people in the warm bed of a sweat lodge. To take off all masks and start 2022 in purity.

Sweat lodges are initiations, rituals, gates, … that bring Women and Men back to the heart of creation. It is a powerful ancient ceremony to a world of deep and spiritual connection.

In this sweat lodge from old to new we create a ceremony to balance the 4 elements in and around yourself. To restore our dialogue with earth, water, fire and air. To release our old skin and give it to the earth, to use our senses and to create space to strengthen your intention(s) for the new year.

Wonderful to meet and welcome you on this special evening / night!

* welcome around 18h for a cup of tea and to relax
* around 19h we would like to build up the fire together and put our intentions for the new year in the ancestor stones
we connect to the fire
* we provide a special ritual prior to the sweat lodge for our intentions/wishes
* around 21h we go into the sweat lodge
