We initiate with short introduction about history and significance of Temazcal in anciente cultures. We salute the Four Directions asking the permission to start the ritual. After the purification ceremony with burning incense we welcome red hot volcanic stones in the interior of the sweat lodge. Water and medicinal herbs give the steam its healing power and produce relaxation mood. The heat become all present, makes us sweat eliminatinng toxins, letting us introspection and selfcuring. Entering temazcal is represents a return into mother´s womb. Its humid and warm ambiance gives sensation of tranquility, peace, security, care and protection where emotions and feelings find their way to regenerate.

I am aficionado of mexican native cultures.Travelling, writing articles and books on maya and huichol cultures. Among others I got captivated by this ancient tradition of sweat lodge, temazcal. So I looked for a piece of jungle to construct one, outside the city. Self purification is essential here to create a beneficiary moment for health, also for touching spiritual dimension. It is a form or learning by living an experience through senses, with the help of fire, water, air, earth, word, silence, chants and aromas.

The sounds of the forest are part of the experience.
