Announcing a new Meetup for The Salt Lake City Shamanism Meetup Group!

Winter Solstice Sweat Lodge - Tuesday the 21st!

What: Winter Solstice Sweat Lodge

When: Tuesday, December 21,[masked]:15 PM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)


I've been doing sacred sweat lodge ceremonies for the last few years with a wonderful Cherokee Spiritual Leader named Jim Pritchard.

He's a wise, heart-centered spiritual leader with clear energy who holds a powerful space for transformation. Jim has led hundreds of sweats for Native Americans, prison inmates, kids in the Juvenile Justice System and folks like us AND he does it in the spirit of honoring both the Masculine and Feminine energies.

More about the Sweat Lodge Ceremony

This traditional ceremony combines the power of the elements for physical and spiritual purification. Sweat ceremonies been used for thousands of years by many cultures to meditate, to pray, to prepare for important life changes and to connect with Spirit because they work so powerfully.

People emerging from the lodge often describe it as 'feeling like a new born baby' because the Sweat Lodge has the spiritual powers and feelings of the womb (and interestingly In cold weather, a warm glowing feeling often lingers and in hot weather, the body feels cooler afterwards)

The Power of the "Tribe"

As a spiritually-connected community it will be even more powerful to bring our hearts/energies/prayers and intentions together in this way, especially on the Winter Solstice!!!
