Sweat Lodge – Ceremony


30 augusti, 2023




Glamping Höga Kusten

Dive deep and cleanse your being

A day to be together, a day for yourself. This is an ancient ceremony where deep cleansing can take place on different layers both physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.

What is a Sweat lodge ceremony?

A sweat lodge ceremony is a ritual ‘clean-up’ which is centuries old. The Native Americans used the sweat lodge to purify. This could, for example, take place after they came back from a hunt or battlefield. Purification can take place on multiple layers: emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.

The red-hot stones, which have been heated in the fire outside the lodge for about two hours, and the combination of water and herbs will cause steam in the hut. This steam, together with the heat, is the start of the ceremony. Before the stones are brought into the lodge, the participants will take their place in the lodge. The participants sit around the pit. The ceremonial leader and a guide sit on both sides of the door.

The sweat lodge ceremony will last 4 rounds, honoring the 4 directions and the elements at each round. During these rounds there will be sharing, singing, and some time for silence. After each round there will be a short break. After this short break, the ceremonial leader will again ask for red-hot stones and start the next round. Although we live in a society, in which time is an important factor, during the sweat lodge ceremony “Indian time/Native American time” will apply. This means that we use the energy and the warmth of the stones as a guide for time.

A sweat lodge is a spherical structure crafted from 16 willow branches, partially inserted and bent into shape, creating a sturdy interconnected frame. Covered with 4 layers of wool blankets, it’s also known as Inipi or ‘house of breath.’ Inside, a central stone pit holds red-hot stones for the ceremony.

The ceremony is supervised by the expert Twannie and his partner Nienke Kanngiesser. In his 40s, after a long business career, he realized the need for change and began a social pedagogical journey. He immersed himself in all the various human care fields, gaining profound insights. This period marked a shift towards self-discovery and independence. This transformation enabled him to to “wake up” to his feelings and guide others through personal processes.
