Surrey has the largest urban Aboriginal community outside of Vancouver. A unique partnership with two aboriginal Elders, Old Hands and Alannah Atley (Wise Woman), established the Raven Healing Grounds at the rear of the Phoenix Centre property in a beautiful natural setting under towering trees. The sweat lodge is built on traditional territory of the Semiahmoo and Musqueam.
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. Please contact 604.583.7166 ext 1 if you would like more information.
