Circle of Turtle Lodge
Sweat Lodge Teachings
April 29th @ 9 AM

This will be a full day of theory and practical teachings about how to build a lodge and harvest what is needed for the ceremony, followed by participating in the ‘Sweat’. Please expect to be outdoors all day: bring work clothes appropriate for the weather, drinking water and lunch/snacks to get you through the day, a lawn chair, natural fabric clothes for the ceremony, dry clothes for afterward, and a food contribution for our Feast that follows. Women must have long skirts for the whole day. We are also hoping for many men to attend to learn about being Fire Keepers; please encourage the men in your circles to take part

I’ve attached an excerpt from our book Anishnabe 101 that is about the Sweat Lodge Ceremony to give you some background. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the number below. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Anyone interested in attending, please complete the Membership Form. Aimee Bailey, Spokesperson 613-625-9980 The Circle of Turtle Lodge 13162B Hwy 60 Golden Lake, On K0J 1X0

Dedicated to helping Indigenous people access Traditional Ceremony & Teachings. Please have interested people complete and return our Membership form. Megwetch.
