    Event description


    A whole-day experience sharing the traditions & ceremonies of the ancient medicine that has been practised for thousands of years. Bobby Runningfox & Eagledancer's (son), teachings come from their lineage, Cherokee. Included within this day; verbal Sweat Lodge, Water Ceremony, Powwow Chanting & Drumming, Medicine Wheel activation, Fire Ceremony & Tipi Teachings... The experience is said to be both physically, emotionally, mentally & spiritually rejuvenating, leaving participants feeling renewed and refreshed. Shifting into your new state of yourself. 


    A Native American Sweat lodge is a ceremonial purifying ritual that focuses on releasing emotions and thoughts that no longer serve you. Its purpose is to rejuvenate the physical and emotional mental state.

    Our Sweat lodges are based within the Cherokee philosophy from our bloodline, which is based on the feminine leadership. As a society we wanted to connect deeper with Mother Earth and we understood that females had the advantage, so we gave the baton towards the feminine ideology to create more responsive harmony and critical thinking to lead actions compared to our neighbouring tribes. War and possession wasn’t our priority, becoming one with MotherEarth was.

    Our ceremonies prior to the Sweat Lodge, create a preparation for a ripple effect to ensure that the space, safety, warmth and time come together. It fosters a vulnerable experience. Vulnerability is met when an individual feels secure within themselves and with those around them. Through our processes in the ceremonies this creates a sense of trust to be vulnerable in order to let go efficiently and safely.


    Bobby Runningfox has been facilitating numerous sweat lodges for over 40years, with him being a Native American Medicine Man; helping people become more true to their lighter selves physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. As a Medicine Man, he will guide you through all the stages to get ready for the sweat, so you can have more of an efficient and joyful experience through release. Each stage will strengthen your being internally and externally. The more you 'surrender' within the lodge, more you will release.
