Sweat lodge
  Probably the most recognised of all Native American ceremonies, although this tradition has existed in various forms in many ethnic cultures.
A sweat lodge is constructed with bent wooden poles covered with canvas or blankets. In the centre is a pit into which is placed hot rocks previously heated in a fire outside of the lodge.
Once sat inside the lodge the door opening is closed and the sweat takes place in darkness.
Sweats are conducted in different ways.
They may include the making of prayers or declarations, chanting, drumming, to create a ritual with spiritual or healing intent. Other lodges may be held in silence.
During the Sweat Bath toxins are removed from the body, negative ions are released into the air to counter fatigue and tenseness and the endocrine glands are stimulated by the rise in temperature.
Traditionally there are four sessions to each sweat with each lasting between twenty and thirty minutes.
In the heat and darkness of the lodge we can come closer to ourselves, our creator, and to understanding each other.

South Africa 7. The African Sweat Hut Ceremony. Sweating as a physical and mental cleansing ceremony is an ancient practice. Most Westerners are familiar with the physical benefits of a sauna such as improved cardio functioning, purifying the body of toxins and keeping the skin healthy. Few understand that there are also psychological benefits. The American Indian sweat lodge, Finnish sauna, Russian bania, Jewish shvitz and Turkish hamman are international forms of sweat therapy. One would be hard pressed to find a culture or era in which group sweating was not a common practice.

Niyan has been running Sweat Lodges since 1994. These 12 years of experience have shaped a different kind of Sweat Lodge; one that Niyan feels serves the South African best. The Sweat Hut is held in a similar way that the Native American people hold their lodge and revered also as the symbolic womb of the Earth Mother. Niyan has adapted teachings from Native American, Brazilian, Mexican, African and Tibetan and Indian Teachers and teachings to shape the Ceremony as it exists today.

The greater underlying intention in these ceremonies is to acknowledge, feel and experience our spirit bodies. When groups of people come together and focus their intent, it becomes a potentially powerful and creative situation. By doing these ceremonies we gently weave a web of connections between those present and all of our Relations (all of creation). Participating in such a ritual is an intimate adventure into our spirit reality.

Different intentions and motivations can be given to each lodge centered on the basic ritual pattern of honoring the elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water. The greater underlying intention in all such ceremonies is to acknowledge, feel and experience our spirit bodies. When groups of people come together and focus their intent, it becomes a potentially powerful and creative situation. By doing these ceremonies we gently weave a web of connections between those present and all of our Relations (all of creation). Participating in such a ritual is an intimate adventure into our spirit reality.

In this Sweat Hut we come together to acknowledge the four elements. They are alive; they exist within us and within the Earth. We come together to experience oneness, with the elements and with the Earth. The Sweat Hut represents the womb of the Earth Mother. When we are inside, we are back in the womb where we can experience rebirth and death of those parts of our ego that no longer serves our growth. We sweat for four quarters, each of which represents one of the four elements. Marimba House, Maluti Mountain Foothills, South Africa
