Medicine Sweat Lodges
with Earth Medicine Teachings

By LaKota OneHeart “Buffalo Woman Comes Running”

The teachings begin at 9 AM

A Prayer Lodge will follow the Teaching, and a pot-luck meal will follow the Lodge.

Although a Medicine Prayer Lodge requires the same preparations as a regular Prayer Lodge, it is longer, much more intense, and can be extremely insightful and healing. Medicine Prayer Lodges are for adults only.

Items to bring:

  • Clothing for the sweat (women traditionally wear long skirts with modest tops such as t-shirts, men can wear sarongs or shorts)
  • Change of clothes for afterwards
  • Plastic bag for wet clothing
  • Towel
  • Blanket or coat to wrap up in after Lodge (if it is cool)
  • A pot luck dish to share for the feast afterwards
  • Any items you wish to place on the altar to be blessed during the Lodge
  • A gallon of spring or distilled water

Any gifts you wish to bring to the Lodge leader such as tobacco or sage (optional, your choice).
