TEMAZCAL PREHISPANIC RITUAL
A temazcal is a type of sweat lodge which originated in ancient Mexico with prehispanic indigenous people. The word temazcal comes from the Nahuatl word temazcalli (house of heat). In Mesoamerica it was used as part of elite warriors and athletes' routines before and after battles or imperial ball games. It was also used by healers to cure the sick, or to help women give birth.
During this solemn and symbolic ceremony, a Shaman will guide you through the antique protocol and invoke the four elements to purify your mind, body and soul.
Temazcal is not a spa treatment: it is an intense ritual that will challenge your body and train your mind for higher self-power. Xinalani recommends scheduling your group's temazcal at the beginning of your retreat. This initiation is the right first step to solidify bonds and ignite transformation. If later, you feel like exploring deeper into that practice, you may schedule a second ceremony, or you can use the sweat lodge just as a regular sauna.
