About us

A special relationship has formed between the owners of Ransom Wood and Turtle Lodge Healing; the Sweat Lodge run by Jason Sewell and his team. The Sweat Lodge, or Temescal, is a purification ceremony which takes place once a month, with additional retreat weekends in the summer. The Sweat Lodge is based on the land at Ransom Wood, and this Festival is a celebration of our community, which we would like to invite you to share.
