  • 2 die, 19 others overcome at Sedona sweat lodge

    SEDONA - Two people died and an estimated 19 others were taken to hospitals after being overcome while sitting in a sauna-like sweat lodge at a Sedona retreat on Thursday night.

    About 50 people were in a "sweatbox" type structure located at the Angel Valley resort, a facility which provides spiritual retreats, Yavapai County sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said on Friday.

    Many people began feeling ill after about two hours in the sweat box.

            This should be one of their links. From the looks of it, they charge a lot:

            $999/person double or triple occupancy

            $1399/person single occupancy

              I couldn't imagine 50 poeple in a sweat. ...but I couldn't imagine being in a sweat at a resort either!

              Traditions.....keep them and keep them sacred!

              I am NOT Indian. I have never been to India, nor has any of my family before me! I have met these people from India, of whom you speak, and I am nothing like them. Why do you call me an Indian?

                    Fire Lodge

                    "Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust -
                    we all dance to a mysterious tune,
                    intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.
                    ~
                    Albert Einstein


                    In the Fire Lodge, we enter the womb of the earth, the safe sacred womb that is within us all. Here there is only sacred space, a place of purification, surrender, and release. A place of returning to the center. Fire Lodge ceremony has become such a profound moment of prayer for me. Something is awakened in the darkness of a sweat - those things that hold us back from moving into the light are mysteriously healed within the fire, the hot rocks, the sweat, the singing and chanting, the tears. Something is heard in our prayers.
                    Aboriginal people all over the world have used the sweat to cleanse, purify and heal their body, soul and spirit. It is a sacred place, a place where we honor our Creator with our prayers, sweat and tears.

                    When you sit in the darkness with only the glow of firey rocks as light, this quickly becomes the core of the earth releasing its ancient sunlight as a gift to your healing. And the web of willow that supports the lodge is the great web of life that encircles the earth and supports it; and that web connects with the sun and the stars; web into web on into infinity. When you sit in the lodge, you sit at the center of all things.

                    We occasionally hold the lodge as a component of our retreat program or for special occasions and celebrations. Please inquire.

                        Um, how long exactly are you supposed to be in a sweat-lodge? I was thinking like 30-minutes to an hour, not more than two hours.

                          I see you came back seeking more wisdom so you can show everyone you associate with just how indian you are! You must be talented in the way you juggle being white, muslim and Ojibwe all at the same time! Well we know that you come here when your being indian. But what website do you go to when your being white? And is there a website you go to when your being muslim?
