Indigenous Sweat Lodge Teaching Workshop

Half-Day Workshop

The Indigenous Sweat Lodge Teachings Workshop can be taken on its own or in conjunction with the Traditional Indigenous Teachings Workshop.


The Indigenous Sweat Lodge Teaching workshop will provide an opportunity to participate in a teaching sweat and better understand a Traditional sweat lodge.


Through experiential learning, the Indigenous Sweat Lodge Teachings workshop will provide teaching and an experience not available in literature, lectures or verbal accounts. Guided by an Elder, attendees will experience a teaching sweat and learn about the sweat lodge.
