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.

Eréndira

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 my masters; Huitzi and Javier and with Luis, their aprendice 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.

More tips

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 or myself
