as a full blood Cherokee, I've sweat many times. i also have poured sweat lodges many times. it's always the responsibility of the leader to listen to all who are in the lodge to discern signs of distress and to stop immediately and help if you do hear any. I've also never, ever charged people money for doing a lodge for them.
This man is not a native and if you read his bio, he is not even trained by any natives. what gives him the right to perform a native ceremony is beyond me. and the fact that people paid 10,000 dollar for a seat.
I've sat in Lakota lodges which are notorious hot and they said at the beginning "if it's too hot for you, please speak up and we will help".
if people reading this want to participate in a real lodge, please contact your nearest reservation (most people live within 300 miles of one) and ask them to let you participate next time they pour. do not go with these self help guru's.. self help is right in describing them. they are helping themselves to your money and your life.
