Fall Equinox Sweat Lodge
Women from the StL Area Woman to Woman and men from the StL Mankind Project hold quarterly sweat lodges to honor the Equinox and Solstice Dates. All adults are welcome. Each ceremony begins at 7 p.m, but we prefer that you arrive about an hour early so that you can get to know each other a bit before entering the lodge, help out with covering the lodge, have time to change your clothes, etc. This is especially important if you have never attended a sweat lodge before--the water pourer will want to talk to you to make sure you are prepared for the ceremony. Helping to prepare for the lodge makes us all part of the community, and many hands make light of the work. You are welcome to arrive when the fire is lit, about 11 am for the Saturday lodges, and 5 pm for the Friday evening lodge. This is a mixed-gender sweat lodge. Appropriate attire is shorts/t-shirts or swim trunks for men & long dresses/skirts or shorts/t-shirts for women. It is recommended that you wear cotton or another material that breathes inside the lodge. There is a place to change clothes before and after the ceremonies. Because it is late after the ceremony, please bring light snacks to share, rather than heavy food for the potluck. P.S. There is no charge for the ceremony, and "love offerings" are gratefully accepted, though not obligatory, to help cover costs.

What we're about

Our group offers sweat lodges, a sacred ceremony known for ages to indigenous peoples around the world! This purification and renewal ceremony cleanses the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of our being. In Florida for the past five or so years, sweat lodges have been apart of an addiction recovery program with amazing results! This program was put into place through the Red Road to Wellness Healing Center located here in the beautiful Missouri Ozarks in Winona Missouri. The sweat lodge Ceremony is free, if it calls to your heart to make a love offering donation, such will be gratefully and humbly accepted. We offer a wide range of teachings and ceremonies taught by elders and young teachers alike! Come join us! ALL people, all ways of life are welcome!
