The “Lodge” is an event of cleansing and purifying…not only your mental aspects of Self-hood, but also the physical, emotional and spiritual body.
Reflect. Restore. Center into Absolute balance.
Come for a Weekend Retreat of Refuge, Spiritual Practice, Yoga, Spiritual Development, and allow yourself to be immersed into an ancient and sacred ritual for cleansing the mind, body, and spirit.
Our lodge ceremony is authentic. These ceremonies have belonged to the Lakota Tribe in this region, and the tradition has been passed down from elder to elder. This is a participatory event, in which YOU gather the wood, dedicate it, and learn the chants and blessings as we prepare for the ceremony. Come into Holy Union with the Self as YOU walk on the sacred grounds in which this ceremony is held and enter your sacred place within.
The ceremony prepares you for a deep inward immersion where the self meets the Self. The “Lodge” is the perfect place to shatter those and any other resistance so you may truly and authentically experience the divine aspects of self-hood, which can only be revitalized in a place of acceptance and Stillness.
If you find yourself struggling between the two voices “within,” this sacred ritual will bring you a profound state of clarity and freedom. Release what no longer serves you.
