Purification by Fire at the Russian Banya
Sunday August 25th at 11am
The fire has been used in sacred purification rituals throughout the ages. Modern medicine also praises the holistic health benefits of saunas, steams, and a good sweat.
In this same spirit we use the fire, the heat of the russian banya (sauna) to open pores, relax tension, release stress, and allow the physical body to send all toxins out.
Following the ways of the siberian shamanism tradition, each individual applies concentrated practices, techniques, and the aid of various other elements to cleanse the physical emotional and mental debris obstructing clean healthy natural state of well being.
