Our RED LODGE LONGHOUSE PROGRAM
invites you on an expedition
to the last real frontier – your inner world.
We give you the owner’s manual for your mind and for your energy body.
The Red Lodge Longhouse Program is the basic training program of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path.
The program provides you with teachings, ceremony, and experiential learning to facilitate:
- connecting with your inner intent
- accessing different levels of consciousness
- entering heightened awareness
- having happiness, harmony, health, connection and meaning in your life.
The teachings explore how we all function as energy fields, and explain the building blocks and energy laws of different dimensional realities.
We give you the alchemy of ceremonial magick so you can unify your different aspects of self, gain harmonic resonance and communicate with the mineral, plant, animal, human and spirit worlds.
The Red Lodge Longhouse offers you a program that you will not find anywhere else. Rooted in the ancient wisdom and beauty of the Southwest Power of Turtle Island, we provide a time proven step-by-step process of education and integration. Through teachings, exercises and ceremony, Red Lodge provides the tools you need to bring more beauty, power and magick into your life. The Red Lodge Longhouse is about learning to mature and achieve balance.
The "Gateway” process is the underlying structure of self-development within all of the Eight Great Powers. Red Lodge is a structured educational program that takes students through the first three gateways of the Sweet Medicine SunDance (SMSD) Path. These gateways are designed to teach us how to do the three G's: "Grow up, Get over it, and Get on with life." Our path is the path of a warrior – it will challenge all of your preconceived notions of who you are. We are not another religion, belief system or weird cult that claims to do it for you. We want you to become an inquisitive free-thinking autonomous individual who takes responsibility for your life and lives it to the fullest. We will empower you and provide a safe journey within a circle of friends who share a desire to make a difference, to take their power and grow up into their highest potential. It is a great journey – but you must do the walking. You must have the willingness to change and make the leap into the next level of human evolution.
Structure of the Red Lodge Longhouse Program
The Red Lodge Longhouse is a four-year program designed to support the progress through the first three gateways of the SMSD Path. Students commit to one year at a time, similar to a college or university program. Each Year meets seven times in a twelve month period, for six weekends and one full week of ceremony in nature.
Years I and II allow the student to explore these teachings, practices and ceremonies. Before entering Third Year, the student is asked to make the decision whether this path is their Path with Heart and then proceed into Third and Fourth Year as Apprentices.
These teachings provide knowledge that most of us never received, but have always hungered for, such as how to achieve balance among our emotional, mental, physical, spiritual and sexual aspects. Realistic, natural and frank, these beautiful teachings provide solutions to many of our unanswered questions about self, life and others. They hold the promise for each of us to become a balanced, sacred human being.
