Full Moon Eclipse Sweat Lodge – 6.30 pm Tuesday 8th October
On the 8th of October – the day of the eclipse – there will be a sweat lodge held at the Vales for both men and women at 6.15pm, which will allow those who wish to attend from the city to get there.
This is truly an amazing period astrologically with the line up of all the planets building up to this eclipsed full moon showing us clearly what is here for change and renewal. What is here for throwing in the rubbish heap. What is here for seizing upon to grow and expand and become fully creative with.
What is here for standing up to and saying no to finally – personally and globally.
It truly is a time of burning off the dross – opening the portals to other dimensions and awakening our potential – those miraculous gifts that still haunt our every breath and every heart beat and have been hidden under all the crap of the stories and wounds that have been imposed on us since birth.
In the sweat lodge ceremony we will prepare the ground of being, we will release to spirit all the dross of accumulated and inherited constraints and then we shall awaken the cosmic egg that dwells in all and ride the winds of change – woo hoo!!
These energies are really quite rare and occur on the second of the blood moons predicted aeons ago as portents of great and global change and renewal. The next age is upon us peeps and it behooves us to prepare well for it. From the ashes rise the phoenix
The sweat lodge encompasses both beginnings and endings.
Each time we take part in a ceremony, we take a journey to the centre of our being, joined with the others in the sweat lodge and yet also alone. It is about birth, death and rebirth. We change as a result of participating.
Great richness flows from maintaining this focus. We chant to help us concentrate on the journey and not the uncomfortable physical environment and our fears. Chanting also helps us to breathe easily and to compose ourselves.
Physiologically, the lodge helps to tune the autonomic nervous system, creating a new internal balance, smoothing out the peaks and lows of emotional and energetic changes. Psychologically, it fosters feelings of well being, peace and self-worth.
It is a powerful tool for growth and also for specific kinds of life difficulties, emotional turbulence and trauma.
There is an intrinsic value arising from participation in the sweat lodge. It is a powerful healing tool.
