circle of life ceremony in the hogan 

This beautiful ceremony is done in sacred space in a contemporary Hogan all year around. Weather permitting, the ceremony begins outside where the couple acknowledges certain agreements before entering. Once inside, an invocation which honors our ancestors in the north begins the ceremony, with the couple being led by the officiant through the sacred directions where specific teachings, pledges and offerings of tobacco and corn are done. A unity candle is shared following the vows. After pronouncement, the couple exits the lodge to be welcomed by their ancestors, Mother Earth, and friends who may be attending. This is a simple ceremony with no rehearsal required. (Maximum occupancy is the couple plus 6 guests)

Earth Walk Medicine Hogan is located on Sandra's personal property in a rural area on the beautiful Hondo Mesa twenty minutes north of Taos. With views of the Rio Grandé Gorge cliffs, the Sangré de Cristo mountain range, and infinite landscapes of sage and piñon in between, this is a place where sunrises and sunsets are savory to the eyes, and double rainbows envelope us with their grander. Here, Horse People talk and play, Crow People sing and dance, and the Plant People find ease in the purity of existence. Cradled by Father Sky and Mother Earth, you can feel the spiritual connection welcoming you as you arrive.  <wedding page
