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. Luis Gómez, Luis Belmonte or myself translate the ritual from spanish to english when its guided by Huitzi or Javier.

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.

Luis is so very gifted. He has a humble, approachable spirit and made it easy to trust and share. I don’t consider myself to be a very spiritual person, but I will seek out a Temazcal on every trip I make to Mexico. Such an amazing experience in a lovely location!

What a BEAUTIFUL experience. In spite of the many reminders, I did not drink enough water!! Still I managed to make it through the experience with only the need to leave the Temezcal once. The sense of peace I felt afterwards is something I hope to access for the rest of my life. Thank you Luis and Jonathan!

Do it!!!! This experience really allowed me to release and hold space for the things necessary in the next chapter. Go into it with a open mind and. No expectations in order to really tap into what’s possible for you. My guide and co-host was absolutely amazing. I’ll be back in July! Loved it! I carry this place, this experience and the people I was able to share this with in my heart for ever. ❤️

My hosts, Jonathan and Javier, were welcoming, encouraging, and thoughtful guides. The experience was totally new to me, and I left feeling rejuvenated and with a lot to reflect on. I definitely see more Temazcal in my future! And, I want to note that this experience is perfectly appropriate for solo travelers (like me), too!

I did no research on what I was about to experience, and I believe that's the best. You're more open to what will come and how this particular Shaman Renewal is done. Luis was very caring about all of us (we were five people who got along really well, a nice bonus!) and guided every step we took. From the meetup point into the 'sauna'. I would describe it as a warm, guided, deep meditation. A kind of meditation I believe everyone needs once in a while. I would happily do it again!
