at SUNSET on a Full Moon evening.
This is just for the experience of it, nothing to do with "religious beliefs". just a natural curiosity of Life in general.
Update: kids are welcome, but unfortunately they aren't allowed inside the lodge. .sorry folks. : (
I think we should all get there around 8pm at the latest.
"IT IS FREE: Bring towels , Long skirt ,
BRING ITEM(S) for a pot luck feast afterwards.
UPDATE: please READ email below for clarification.
"Good Afternoon Anna, Boozhoo. Se:kon. My name is Anita and I am helping Rick out with some details for the upcoming ceremony. You had indicated you may bring a group of 8-15 persons. Could you let me know how many people are actually planning on coming ? Based on numbers it may mean that we have to run 2 lodges that evening to accommodate everyone :-) Nothing to worry about--it is all good. .....and just to refresh the answer to some of your questions as to what people will need to bring. Bring towels , Long skirts , something to share at the potluck feast after the lodges(s), your bundles/sacred items if you have any and some tobacco (semma) for the lodge bowl. No jewelry of any kind, hair ties, contact lenses,glasses, makeup, finger nail polish, is/are to be worn inside the lodge. Just a heads up :-) Women on their time or pregnant cannot enter circle or participate in the lodge. There is no charge--these ceremonies are free :-) You may want to bring lawnchairs as well. The fire will be lit around 2:00 that afternoon so anyone may come and help out with preparations. Once, we have a good feel for the number of persons attending, I can give you a better idea of when the lodge time(s) will be. If it is only the one-- everyone should be there for 7:30-8:00 pm as we will enter the lodge at 8:30 to 9 pm. Looking forward to meeting you and your friends :-) Miigwetch, Anita Rooke"
