An Ancient Purification Ceremony
A type of Sweatlodge, a Temazcal is an ancient purification ceremony; for relieving stress, cleansing toxins from the body, releasing negativity and revitalising life force. Especially beneficial for your immune system & balancing mind, body & spirit.
Essentially, it is a steam bath in a natural dome. Large rocks are heated on a fire outside, then placed inside a natural bowl in the center of the dome & doused with water and herbs. The medicinal steam & the power of the natural elements help us to open and cleanse.
As a key part of indigenous medicine, it has been used widely for thousands of years for the treatment & prevention of disease, stress, weight loss, depression, skin conditions, fibromyalgia & much more..
The Sweatlodge dome itself represents the ‘Womb of the Earth’ as its energy is distinctly nurturing, bringing us closer to our and Panchamama.
We host Temazcal Sweatlodge across the UK, Europe and Mexico following and honouring our lineage of the traditional altar. Both Ahau & Robyn are Vision Questers and dedicate their lives to this path as humble students with the grandfather fire as their teacher.
