We are delighted to invite your participation in a community sweat ceremony to celebrate and honor the balance of dark and light in this Equinox. Come renew, purify, pray, sweat, spend time in nature, and begin the cycle of rebirth in this time-honored and sacred way!
Arrive by 2:30 and walk to the upper land for a 3:00 entry time.
A simple potluck will follow the sweat ceremony. Please bring finger foods to share, with your own plate and water bottle. No stove or oven available.
For the sweat ceremony, please bring at least two towels, warm, layered clothing to change into after, loose-fitting dress / sarong / shorts / t shirt for going into the lodge.
A suggested donation of $30-$100 per person.
No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Donations cover the TOF costs of firewood plus offer a gift to the water-pourer and to our firekeeper.
Please let us know of your intent to participate. Call 805-646-8343.
Please make sure to park only on the left side of the road in our parking area, and walk up to the top of the hill for ceremony. Follow the smoke and fire!
