What you'll do

Melt away stress in this Temazcal experience with a native healer and spiritual guide.

The sweat lodge is the setting for a 2,500-year-old ritual that uses a prehispanic technique (Mayan-Zapotec or Aztec, depending of the guide) to illuminate a pathway into your inner self and begin a rebirth of love in your soul.

You’ll enjoy freshly brewed herbal tea from a medicinal garden as you drink in teachings of Temazcal history. After applying aloe, salts and herbs to your body, you’ll listen to songs and wise words to calm the mind and breathe vapor from medicinal plants.
Other things to note
The duration of the experience inside the Temazcal may vary for the group or individuals, depending on how each person feels.
Because there are sometimes many rituals per week the ritual is performed by different guides: Javier Moctezuma (Mexica descendant), Huitzi (zapotec Nahual), Luis Gómez or myself.
*UPDATE: Luis G. and I are out of Mexico to have our baby, we'll be back on May 2021, in the mean time Huitzi or Javier will be your guides and your host will be Luis Belmonte, you are in great hands*

I'm an artist, biologist, and nature lover descendant of the Purepecha culture. I discovered the Temazcal ritual as a teenager on one of my trips to the rainforest in Veracruz, where I lived for 15 years. Since then, it has been part of my life, helping me reconect with my prehispanic roots and providing me with guidance in times of doubt and sorrow, as well as relaxation. After moving back to the city some years ago, I met my teachers who brought Temazcal into my life again. It has become a way to pamper myself inside and out. My mission is to help people reconnect with nature and their higher selves, that's why I serve as a translator of my masters and sometimes as a guide in this ritual.
I co-host this experience with Luis B. & my masters; Huitzi, Javier and Luis G., their apprentice and who is also a guide and translator.

Where you'll be

We will go to the Temazcal named “Tonantzin”—our mother. It stands on a natural oasis in Mexico City, surrounded by urban crops, flowers and a medicinal garden. It's the perfect place to escape.

Very unique experience and one that will certainly not be forgotten. A great way to personally experience Mexico's prehispanic traditions, and take a moment to pause and look inward. highly recommended.

The experience was more than magical. The knowledge of the wonderful team make you feel at ease. To have Eréndira’s experience remind us of our ancestry and guide us to look inward was what we never knew we needed. Luis the guide was so welcoming and informative, the Shaman Javier’s wisdom and healing energy is authentic and priceless. I would highly recommend to do some research of what is a Temazcal so you know it’s a sacred abs healing practice that we need to treat with respect.

This is not your simple spa experience for the casual tourist with a little steam and some meditation. This is extremely intense and deep, it lasts a long time, and you need to be very strong and mentally tough to be able to get through it. (Which makes me think it is a little more REAL than some other Temazcals) But you will have an experience to tell your friends and family for years if you go through it. Bring some water shoes or flip flops, to walk through the environment and lodge after changing, and something soft to sit on!

A magical experience in the middle of nowhere, where all is accepted and all worries are washed away. Come with your problems and demons; and confront them in the darkness as you prepare for your new birth with insight for dealing with them. The heat was intense but tolerable; I will forever remember this moment. Words really can’t describe the experience. Just do it.

We were hosted by Luis as our guide and Javier, our shaman. Luis was so good and super passionate about the Temascal. I got the sense that he is a young shaman. Now...Javier, the shaman, guided us through a life shifting experience, supporting us in going back into the womb, remembering the ancestors, and ridding the ills of the world, reborn to a life lived absolutely in the present and with integrity as a "warrior." You will get out of this experience exactly what you need. No more. Don't pass it up...that's all I can say. Con muchísimo gratitud por una experiencia qué me informará por el restó de me vida.
