Our Tulum Resort Temzacal - Sweat Your Prayers Profound Healing the Mayan Way
On Day 3 as part of our Mayan powered Revision Quest from May 1 - 6 in our Tulum resort we'll be taking part in a Temzacal which means "bath house" in the ancient Nahuatl language. This ancient practice has endured in the region in spite of the Spanish conquerors attempts it stamp it out. Considered more than just being an occasion to remove toxins from our bodies it is a method of cleansing the mind and spirit. Profound healing and connection with appreciation to Mother Earth through the agency of the Goddess, the temzacal is seen as the womb of the earth from which we all come (You know well the saying "ashes to ashes, dust to dust") This is an opportunity to be still and cleanse on a deep level. In tandem, we are offering a juice cleanse which we recommend. Giving your digestion a break while participating in the sweat lodge will make for a better detox.
Here we found an excellent article from the Mexican Institute of Traditional Medicine that explains in a beautiful way the significance and history of this practice. Do join us. This is in our minds and hearts a perfect way to usher in a renewed look at life with appreciation for all those who have come before us.
