About The Sweats:

The Sweat Lodge Ceremony is very powerful and is not for everyone. It is an ordeal for healing and purification that is strenuous and taxing for both the body and the spirit. You will be asked to sign a release form in order to participate. Feel free to call us and ask questions.

We, in our household, are not Native American so we recognize that our Sweats are not Native Sweats. We honor the wisdom of Native traditions as we create our own unique ceremonies. The Sweat Ceremony has existed in some form or another on every continent in a wide array of cultures. 

The sweats at Seelie Court (name of our land) use Wiccan protocols developed within our tradition (Assembly of the Sacred Wheel). On occasion, guest Water Pourers who follow native or other paths will bring their tradition to our lodge.

By Reservation Only

Sweats are generaly held on Saturdays and we conduct one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Call us to reserve space as a lodge will only hold a small number of people. There are health issues that can make sweat lodges risky. You will be asked to disclose your health status in order to reserve a spot.  To reserve a spot call us at (302) 855-9422 or email us panpipe@seeliecourt.net

If your plans change after making reservations, please call or email so we can adjust the list. 

Also check the day before to make sure that your sweat is still scheduled. We won't waste resources and will combine the sweats or cancel them unless there are sufficient reservations

Times:

Please plan to arrive by 10:30 AM for the 11:30 AM Sweat, and 1:00 PM for the 1:30 PM Sweat. If you would like to attend the fire ceremony arrive by 8:30 AM. Plan on spending some time after the Sweat to rest and eat before departing. This can vary from 30 minutes to a few hours depending upon the person.
