The Temazcal, or the traditional Mesoamerican sweat lodge, isn’t just any sauna experience. The temazcal ceremony is a rejuvenating ritual intended to purify the body and the mind. A local shaman guides the ceremony as participants sit in a small, dome-shaped structure. Heated volcanic stones, or “abuelitas,” are placed in the center while the shaman pours water infused with medicinal herbs over them. As steam fills the room, the shaman uses chants, songs, and sometimes instruments to lead participants on a journey of introspection and cleansing. Emerging from a Temazcal ceremony, one often feels renewed, having shed negative energies or burdens.
