Sweat Lodge - Cenote - Mayan Culture
Temazcal is the ancient ritual of sweat lodge practiced by the native inhabitants of Mexico & North America. It is a cleansing ceremony, designed to release tension, stress and toxins from the mind & body. Through the use of heat, steam & infused herbs, our muscles relax, the pores of our skin open up and our mind is taken away from the usual patterns of thought that occupy it. The ceremony lasts for approximately 2 hours, with a number of breaks to let out the excess heat and a rest to make sure everyone is comfortable.
There are numerous health benefits, particularly for the skin, circulatory system, respiratory system and immune system. But Temazcal is also 'good for the Soul', lifting a weight off the shoulders, leaving us feeling especially relaxed and lighter than usual.
After the ceremony, we will visit a nearby cenote to wash off all the traces of sweat and tension to complete the relaxation process, the cool water feeling especially refreshing after the heat of the sweat lodge. We will also share a delicious meal of regional delicacies and fresh fruits prepared by a local family.
To finish off this special day, we visit Coba archaeological site (optional) outside of regular visiting hours. This site is almost always empty of other visitors at this time, allowing us to cycle through the jungle and climb the Nohoch Mul pyramid in virtual privacy and the evening view out over the jungle is fantastic & inspiring, the perfect way to end a day of exploration, discovery and healing.
A highly recommended therapeutic, relaxing & re-jeuvenating experience.
