The sweat lodge is a phenomenological structure that establishes an axis mundi with the underworld, earth and sky.

A sweat is an ancient act of piety for the Algonkian people; it purifies the body and spirit before one embarks on a heroic journey into the unknown. In many cultures, cleansing the body is customary before entering a sacred space.
