Sweat lodge Solstice
Purification ritual in nature
At Yule a wonderful thing happens. The Sun stops its decline and for a few days it rises in about the same place. This is the crucial time, the cusp between events. The Sun stands still, and everyone waits for the turning. The Sun does start north again and the light comes back. In the world, in our lives, the light comes back. This is the Sun’s birthday so time to celebrate.
Time to celebrate the longest night of the year together. With Yule (Midwinter) the light returns. The darkness makes place for the light as the days become longer again. More light means more sun and warmth so in the plant kingdom, growth can start again. We celebrate together to wake up new life force. The Christmas Tree (Life Tree) annonces the new green period. It is the rebirth of the sun and the awakening of nature soon. Time to sit and sing around the fire!
Our thoughts, emotions, insights, stories, songs,… are shared and we also invite the SILENCE to really LISTEN to all there is in every moment. So our true essence can be experienced.
Welcome around the fire!
- Together we build the sweat lodge at 09h30 and lit the fire to connect with each other, the stones and the fire.
- Approximately 3h later we go into the sweat lodge (when the stones are hot).
- After the sweat lodge we make time to share experiences and food (potluck) — Bring something nice to share with the rest.
