Sweat lodge ceremony.

Native American sweat lodge ceremonies are for cleansing and purification. Native Americans have used this ceremony representing the re-entry into the womb of mother earth for centuries. They build it out of saplings that bend over and are tied down. Traditionally buffalo skins were used to cover it. Stones heated over a fire were brought in and dried cedar and sage were used to help with the purification process.
The spiritual leader who watches and leads the proceedings is called the water pourer and leads the participants in prayer inside.

Zulu sangomas dancing in ceremony

This video was taken at my red ceremony as a student sangoma in the Zulu tradition. Notice the low entrance to the ancestor hut. The ceremony started on a Friday evening and ended the next day at around 4pm. The dancing lasts for hours and hours and is done to reach trance. I had very limited permission to photograph and it was my ceremony, so I could not take too much time to rest, but photographing dancers go into trance would have been a no-no. On the right, right opposite the entrance you will see the altar where the muti pot waits for me to drink from at 4am and then thrown up to cleanse my body and my energy field.

Christina Pratt: Shamanic Healing, Part 1 — What it is, how it works, what it will do for you

Christina Pratt beautifully demonstrates a soul retrieval. (She does it out loud so you can really follow along!) In our western society, where our own healing tends to be ignored, these “woundings” get passed on to the next generation if left unresolved at death. This can have a dramatic impact on our lives (emotional and physical) since it does not belong to us!
