Womens sweatlodge journey

With Fiona Shaw


This is an initiation journey of reclamation and pledging service to the Earth


This is a journey of remembering, honouring and surrendering.
It is a journey of gratitude and reciprocity.
This is a journey to celebrate life and all we come into connection with.
This is a journey of initiation through the rites of passage of our lives as women Birth, Menarche, and Mother.

During this time together we will sit in circle, pray, dream deeply, immerse in the land, feast and honour the earth and our responsibility to her.


The Flow of the Four Ceremonies

For the first three gatherings we will meet in the house of the stone people, to sweat and release all that we need to lay down.
In the lodge we will sing to the grandparents, asking for help to remember and surrender.

The three temescals are an opportunity to heal old stories and clear the way forward. We use this opportunity to rewrite the stories we tell ourselves.
After each lodge you will add prayers to your sacred staff that you bring with you through the journey.


In the last gathering we will make a ritual throughout the day, lifting our prayers up with song while we walk ourselves home.

Travelling across Dartmoor, accompanied by the sacred medicine, we will be recapitulating our life story and giving things for the beauty of the land.

We will return for our final temescal to bless and activate our staffs and completing the ceremony with our pledge of service to the Mother Earth.

At the end of the day we will celebrate and feast!
