What is a smudging or saging ceremony? Why do it?
Smoke ceremony, saging or smudging. Ceremonies involving the use of smoke to cleanse a space or ceremony area exist in many forms in many different cultures throughout the world.
To me, the ritual itself brings so many benefits, not least being that you are asking everyone present to let go of any negative thoughts or elements and to start a ceremony with a fresh slate of new and positive energy.
A perfect way to open any rite of passage. Try it some time.
