A PROGRAM OF PERSONAL AND SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION
Red Lodge is a structured educational program that delivers the core teachings of the Sweet Medicine Sundance Path. Through the 4 year course students are guided through the first three gateways or levels of teachings. Each year's learning has a unique focus and is built upon from the previous years studies. Students commit to one year at a time. The student group meets five times through the year to experience teachings, interactive learning and ceremonies.
