Sweat Lodge

The sweat lodge at Birkihof retreat center is an ancient rite (ceremony) which native Americans preserved but the purpose of the sweat is to seek to cleanse the mind, body, and soul.
The person usually reaches a place within himself to give up for thoughts that no longer serve and connect to themselves and the natural elements in a new way each time.


Included is the use of the swimming pool and floating gear after

the sweat ceremony and then a light supper - soup and bread.

Accommodation is also at hand if people choose it. We welcome groups and individuals. This is a powerful nature experience.




On the facebook page – sacred sweat– the dates are advertised each month and there it is possible to register by sending us a message.
