We have found that the 10 AM start time is works well. It gives everyone an opportunity to assist with the fire building ceremony and other preparations. We then have fruitful discussions and sharing about various Joseph Rael teachings. When people show up on time, there is no distraction from the ceremony by late comers. All are able to commit, cooperate and contribute.
About the Sweat Lodge Ceremony: The actual sweat lodge, with the introduction, often lasts about 2 hours. Bring clothes for wearing after the lodge. Attire for the lodge should be modest and non-revealing: men: loose swimsuit or shorts; women: long dress, preferably w/sleeves or sleeved top and long skirt. Bring a towel and a water bottle; work gloves, if you have them, and a potluck dish for after the lodge. The ceremony and protocols are explained before the lodge. You may leave the lodge at any time. Understand that sitting by the fire you are also in the ceremony: a powerful time to pray and meditate. If you need to leave the lodge itself the ceremony continues for you around the fire. Participants are allowed to come back into the lodge if they need to sit outside for a portion of the ceremony.
Please call Tom or Kristen at 610-469-9029 for information and confirmation. Donations for Lodges and Chamber are appreciated.
