                                              Suggestions for an Enriched Inipi Ceremony Day

      Please wear a long skirt and a shirt with sleeves (for Women) or shorts and a T-Shirt (for Men) and bring a towel for inside the sweat lodge - these items will get dirty. Come hydrated and bring extra water. I suggest that you bring an extra change of clothes and a clean towel (to dry off with) since lodge wear will be wet and muddy. Outdoor shower and bathroom available at event site. Please also bring a dish of your choice for our post lodge potluck (note: we do not provide a way to heat or keep food cold). Suggested donation of $60 will be collected at arrival - cash or check only. A portion of your donation goes to Madre Grande. Please make check out to Roberta Moon.

Item Checklist:

2 towels/ one for inside the lodge and one for drying off after lodge

Folding chair

Wear a long Skirt and T-Shirt or Shorts and a T-Shirt

Extra clothes and jacket


Bottles of water for hydration

Favorite dish to share

Donation: $60 cash or check made out to Roberta Moon

Travel Hint:
Be vigilant to the Lucky Six Truck Trail left turn off of the 94. Please note that the final climb up that dirt road will be safe if taken slowly. I suggest that you add an extra 15 minutes for that drive up the hill. The Monastery is behind the left gate at the very end of the road - please shut the gate behind you. Follow the signs to the Sweat Lodge. Please send any questions via Facebook messenger.
