Men’s Earth Medicine Lodge-Led by Trai Hill
November 5, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmLove Offering
What is an Earth Medicine Lodge?
…A prayer ceremony used for purification and healing. The Lodge itself represents the womb of Mother Earth. We enter into the Lodge and offer our prayers and set our intentions with Spirit. As we leave the Lodge, we are being reborn into the new life we choose to create for ourselves. Most people experience a shift either from the release of prayers or simply by the re-unification to Mother Earth. Although the intention of each lodge can be different, the sacred space created by the darkness and the heat always allows for Spirit to whisper into the ears of those present.
Similar ceremonies have been done around the world for eons by the cultures who are connected to the Earth and the healing she brings. This Lodge does not follow any one particular tradition but offers that follow many indigenous traditions from around the world. This is not a traditional Native American Ceremony.
The FireKeepers will light the Fire at 1:00 pm and the Ceremony will begin around 3:00 pm. Please arrive by 2:00 and we will dress the Lodge and join with the energy of the community.
Dress is modest and tradition asks that both men and women wear a T-shirt and skirt (or sarong) to honor the Elders. A change of clothes for after the Lodge is a good idea.
We will share a pot luck community meal after the Lodge in order to ground the energy and have fellowship after the ceremonies.
A blanket or mat to sit on
Change of clothes for after the Lodge
A dish to share for the meal
Chairs to sit in before and after the Lodge
There is never a charge for Ceremony, however, it is always good to complete the circle of receiving in some way. All monetary donations will be used for the ongoing work of Otter Dance, and is always received with Much Gratitude and Many Blessings!
A gift of tobacco or sage for the Lodge leader and Firekeeper is always appreciated as they do this work as a gift to the people. To only receive and not give makes the circle incomplete. You will be given an opportunity before we feast to present your gifts and offerings to those in service.
