INCAN SWEAT AND PIPE LODGES
The Sweat Lodge
Traditionally, sweat lodges are done for the purpose
of cleansing, guidance, and healing as well as many other reasons.
Incan Sweat Lodge is created. The Inca say in order for one to
be free of those things of the past that have, for so long, shadowed
our path, we must travel to the Lower World. This domain, known
in the Quechua, the language of the Inca people, as the Hujupacha,
holds those shadows for us until we are ready to retrieve them
so that they may be transformed, allowing us to be free of those
things that were never ours. The transformation takes place by
retrieving the shadows from the Hujupacha, taking them up to
the Kaypacha, the Middle World, then to the Hanaqpacha, the Upper
World. Through the guidance of the Mountains and the Fire, we
are able to attain the Three Worlds, returning to the Kaypacha
in a state of well-being and balance. We will begin the work
by meeting together so that I can talk to you about the process
of the Lodge in more detail.
The Pipe Lodge
The pipe has been used for centuries
by shamans all over the world. Among its uses are cleansing,
healing, journeying, and rite transmission.
We will work with the preparation of the pipe and the tobacco
before using them. Different pipes have different uses. If you
than one pipe, please bring them. While some may be used in
cleansing work, others may only be used in rite transmission. The
you bring should be pure - nothing with added flavors or scents.
If you can get native tobacco, that would be ideal. However,
if you do not have access to a store that sells native tobaccos,
can use more conventional tobaccos, as described above. No
narcotics, please. You should bring pipe cleaners, something to
pipe in and its ashes. If your pipes do not have pipe screens,
you should get them. These are small wire mesh disks that fit
in the bowl of your pipe and helps to prevent tobacco and ash
from blocking the prevent tobacco and ash from blocking the stem.
plenty of matches, too...)
IF YOU PLAN TO JOURNEY WITH US FOR EITHER LODGE,
IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO KNOW...
that fasting, at least 24 hours prior to the Lodge,
is necessary. This means no alcohol, substance use, caffeine, meats
of any kind,
sugars, anything that will, in any way, limit you.
that you should be well-rested. Once you have
entered the Lodge, you may not leave until the work you have
come to do is done. If
it is absolutely necessary for you to leave the Lodge,
you will be escorted from the Lodge. Once outside, it is important
you wait and not leave the grounds, as it will disrupt
the work still going on.
that you bring a bowl of food (no meats, please) to share
with the community after the work is done and the lodge
is closed. In
this way, we, as a community, joyously celebrate the
Gift of Life that we have received.
that you wear loose, comfortable
clothing. If you are comfortable with using a towel to cover
with instead of clothing,
you may do so.
that you bring something that you may sit
or lay comfortably on.
that you bring a flashlight, as the lodge
may go into the evening.
space in the lodge is limited to twelve
This work is for those who seriously
wish to journey within to find the
that vision to
life. This is not entertainment or
something that should be taken without
In the ancient way, when a lodge was to be held, the community
would gift the medicine people
for holding the sacred space for them. A donation to help alleviate expenses
appreciated and accepted.
