Sweat Lodge

Surrey has the largest urban Aboriginal community outside of Vancouver. A unique partnership with two  aboriginal Elders, Old Hands and Alannah Atley, established the Raven Healing Grounds at the rear of the Phoenix Centre property in a beautiful natural setting under towering trees. The Elders and residents have built two traditional sweat lodges (one for men, one for women).

It is a beautiful healing place for  people looking for a place to find inner healing, while making new friends, finding support from others and looking for alternative ways to heal from addiction, grief, abuse, and the stresses of daily life.

The Sweat Lodge is open to the public to attend on Sundays.
