Bathing in Covid Times


The Bath House (sauna) is the center of healing, family, and community life into ancient times. 

It is our belief that now is exactly the time to explore and reconstruct what our own ancestors used for healing when they were faced with health crisis and social/political uncertainty.

Join us in the mission of discovering and delivering healing with your tax deductible donation.

What is Völva Stav?

Völva Stav (created in 2003 by Kari Tauring) is a system of sacred body geometry and toning in a Norse cultural context. In her teachings, runes, staff rhythm, and voice combine to create physical alignment with Norse cosmology, pathways for metaphysics, and as a tool for healing öorlog and inherited cultural grief. The methodology includes tools for boundary setting, communication, and creating healthy interactions in our personal, community, and spiritual lives.
