Hawaiian Sweat Pulo’ulo’u
The purification [sweat] house has been a part of many cultures especially with the indigenous people. This is a ritual of “healing & renewal” as well as prayer. You are invited into this transformational house, Hale, and those who participate in the “sweat” or purification, Pulo’ulo’u, will experience a personal and cultural re-birth. The moist, natural, and extreme heat provides an opportunity for the release of toxins and bodily impurities. The hot ordeal challenges our control and resistance and allows the chance for emotional release, mental clarity, and physical healing. In the Hawaiian hale, one is entering a house of alignment andhealing. Assisted by the hale-keeper, water pourer, or navigator, kau wai or ho’okele, those who request a ‘sweat’ are purified with ceremonial steam, herbs, and invocations for protection, healing, blessing, and alignment. The sweat hale is a good way to prepare for a quest, to end a quest, or dust off that which does not serve one, on a journey of intensive growth, and greater awareness.
History of the Hawaiian Sweat Pulo’ulo’u
The purification [sweat] house has been a part of many cultures, especially with the indigenous people. Every community that has realized the health benefits of steam has held the intention of this ritual as a method of healing, renewal, and prayer.
