Sweat lodge

The water splashed onto the side of the wood stove sending hot steam inside the sweat lodge. Hot sweat dripping. And our voices chanting, channeling the energies of the earth, of the ancestors, of the indigenous spirit. The sounds melding and combining.

And it occured to me tonight in the sacred heatthat we could have a sweat lodge gift circle. Where the earth can speak its needs and gifts. And those needs can be a guide for what we can do.

I envision a network of circles. With many different types of circles. The needs that arise in some circles may not be able to met by people in that circle, but they can be passed onto other circles which may be able to meet them. Some circles may collaborate as a team to make certain needs happen. I envisage sweat lodge circles helping to bring in the voice of earth and nature. These voices can then be passed onto other circles which may help manifest what is needed.
