What you'll do
After a short tour of the place, we make an opening ceremony to ask permission to the four divinities aldermen of the four cardinal points. This is done with copal smoke to cleanse each participant within the ritual. After the ceremony we enter the womb of Mother Earth (the Temazcal). There inside we provide aloe vera as natural soap for cleansing the pores of the body, in addition to a bouquet of aromatic herbs to relax, then we make exercises, guided meditation and Nahuatl songs related to the four sacred directions. After the Temazcal ceremony is completed people can rest in a designated area where they can relax deeply. To conclude the session, we enjoy a rich chicken broth or a vegetarian dish for those who do not eat meat, all accompanied by a sauce made in a traditional morter and drink a traditional 'pulque' (prehispanic fermented drink) of the region and tea for rehydration of the body.

Hello! My name is Xochitl Citlalmina, I am of Nahua origin and I am the keeper of a ‘temazcal’ (prehispanic sweat-lodge) in a rural area of Mexico City called Milpa ALta. I have spent many years of my life studying the temazcal, within the traditional Mexican medicine and I also hold a master's degree related to the topic. For 15 years I have ran Temazcal sessions especially of the ritual and therapeutic type. I believe that living this experience helps us to solve emotional problems that have a negative effect on our health. In this activity I am accompanied by a Nahuatl friend who has been with the Lakota, Ojibwe and Pueblo people of the USA, he also speaks English.
