Melt away stress in this Temazcal experience with a half-Mayan, half-Zapotec native healer and spiritual guide. The sweat lodge is the setting for a 2,500-year-old ritual that uses a Mayan-Zapotec technique 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.
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 a teacher who brought Temazcal into my life again. It has become a way to pamper myself inside and out. In some ocasions I can't make it and my co-host Luis takes my place, he's a great host and will do everything in his hands to help you get the most out of the temazcal experience, he's also Huitzi's apprendice and temazcal guide so if for some reason Huitzi can't make it, Luis and I will guide the ritual.
You will receive a taxi ride to and from Condesa area, near Metro Patriotismo and Chilpancingo.
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.
The duration of the experience inside the Temazcal may vary for the group or individuals, depending on how each person feels. Sometimes the ritual is guided by an Aztec spiritual guide, or Hutzi's apprendices (Luis and I).
