SACRED SAND-PAINTING


NEE - YOH - WAH

NEE - YOH


Sand-painting is a sacred healing ceremony.


The “shaman” chants while he paints, asking the Holy People to come into the sand-painting to restore “balance” to the person being healed.


Order and Symmetry are used to symbolize harmony and “balance.�


The person that has come to the shaman to be healed sits on the completed sand-painting facing east.


The Holy People enter through the sand-painting to absorb the illness and restore the person’s “balance.”


The sacred ceremony ends when the shaman destroys the sand-painting and the illness it has absorbed.
