The tradition of the Temazcal
From Pre-Hispanic heritage, Mexicans have recovered a ritual ceremony that was celebrated among indigenous cultures as a therapeutic cleansing.
In our days, this steam bath has been taken up with the intention of experiencing this magic connection that has been forgotten and that exists in the Earth and in all parts of our being.
Volcanic rock is heated until red-hot and is placed in the center of an igloo-type construction, where the group reunites. After the initial ceremony, the conch shell is sounded, signaling the beginning of the temazcal bath. The group gets comfortable inside the temazcal and the stones are called for. The door is closed, sealing off all light and sealing in the heat. Herbs are thrown on the stones to create a curative vapor, heating the temazcal to even higher temperatures. The body may reach a temperature of 104°F or 40° C during the temazcal.
The group exits the temazcal after the four doors (each part of the temazcal is called a puerta, or door) have concluded and each person cools off under a shower before dressing.
Please make sure to consume plenty of water (at least 3 L.) throughout the entire day of the temazcal, as up to 2 liters may be lost during the sweat bath. It is very important that alcohol and drugs NOT be consumed on the day of the temazcal. Please consume a light meal at least two hours before the temazcal to avoid indigestion. We will be serving herbal teas during the temazcal and afterward. Bring a towel and dry clothing (don't forget a fleece or sweater) to keep warm after the temazcal.
Please, no children under 12.
