Sweat it out
IF you ever wondered what it would be like to take part in an ancient ritual that aims to cleanse you body and soul – now’s your chance – but you have to sweat it.
The ancient cleansing ritual known as a Sweat Lodge Ceremony is being held this weekend in Co Wicklow. It will be hosted by Carl Big Heart, whose not-for-profit work is endorsed by elders from the Abenaki, Muskogee Creek, and Iroquois Nations. The ceremony is held in darkness, although you may leave at any time.
We stuck it out but only just, and thanks to the tip from an old hand – lie down when you feel like running. It will be held today at Knockfadda, Roundwood, Coolawella, today and tomorrow from 10am to 6pm. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
