not only that, it would be the responsible thing for them to do.
Was this your first sweat lodge? In any case, sounds like perhaps you released quite a bit of toxins. And the body does need a recoup period afterwards. As for hungry,...a meal six hours prior? I'd be freaking starving too.
I used to hold sweats at my other house (no room here) and I've seen all kinds of thigs like people bailing out (no shame there, know your limits) or getting sick, or spontaneously be ridden by a God or Goddess, near misses with the fire pit or the the rocks inside. But we always had grazing (like small healthy snacks) feast afterwards. Don't be so hard on yourself, sounds like it did what it was supposed to do.
