Sacred sweat lodge ceremony @ Zebras Crossing Very Private Game Lodge | South Africa

What is a Sweat Lodge?
A Sweat Lodge or Purification Lodge is a Native American Ceremony involving the four elements used to cleanse the four bodies: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. We spend time in silence making prayer ties after which we gather at the sacred fire before entering a Turtle Lodge which represents the Womb of Mother Earth. The Lodge is a dome shaped structure covered with blankets with two doors. Stones are placed in the fire and brought into a pit at the center of the lodge where water is poured over to create steam while we sing Native American medicine songs.
​We gather in circle around the fire to smoke the Chanupa (Sacred Pipe) followed by the completion of the ceremony with the Ceremonial Meal
