Sweat Lodge Ceremonies on Oct. 18: The New Mexico VA Health Care System is offering #Veterans the opportunity to participate in sweat lodge ceremonies. Sacred Native American sweat lodge ceremonies for men and women have been scheduled for Wednesday, October 18, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at our medical center. Participants will meet in front of Building 1. A sweat lodge ceremony is a purification and balance of the body, mind, spirit and emotions. All participants must be medically cleared by a VA medical provider to ensure their wellness during the ceremony.
