Experience a traditional sweat lodge, a deeply healing and spiritually enriching group ceremony. Sweat lodges take a lot of work to prepare, and most of our lodge leaders do not live in the local area, so these must be booked as far in advance as possible. Ceremonies usually include traditional prayers and songs and are often intended for purification and/or healing. Even people who are experienced with sweats, and attending a ceremony led by a properly trained and authorized traditional Native American ceremonial leader, could suddenly experience problems due to underlying health issues. It is recommended that people only attend lodges with authorized, traditional spiritual leaders. Loose comfortable clothing recommended, covering the knees and shoulders for women. Women on their moon are not permitted inside the lodge.
“Loved Menla and all the experiences they offer… I attended morning yoga with different instructors who were excellent and fully over indulged with the veggie buffet with gluten-free and vegan options. Many fresh greens from the organic on-site garden. Delicious!”
“A wonderful retreat center. Beautiful setting and accommodations. By the end of the weekend I felt like I was in an different space, not in any specific geographical area but a separate magical world.”
“Usually you expect basic accommodations for a Retreat Center, but the deluxe room I stayed in was amazing. All the nature around is very special, and don´t forget to book a massage at the wonderful Spa!”
