Through the coast of Riviera Maya and the Mayan jungle of Quintana Roo, the hot steam of the Temazcal ceremony welcomes you to a life-changing tradition rooted in the lands of Mexico. Referred to as the womb of mother earth, Temazcal gathers people who seek its gift and will guide them through the deep physical and emotional detox – the essence of the ceremony.

Just being the eccentric beach town Tulum is, many people occasionally travel here (especially in Oct) to immerse in the holistic wellness ceremonies in this sacred Mayan environment. Located in various sceneries: by the jungle, beach, and cenote, it’s time to reconnect to nature and let it help you in your spiritual journeys.

So, be ready for the call of the Temazcal ceremony and enhance your knowledge about Temazcal to better prepare for the day when Mother earth calls you.

JOURNEY THE TEMAZCAL EXPERIENCE: MORE THAN A SWEAT LODGE!

Unlike what you see on the surface, the ceremony is more than a sweat lodge. At its core, Temazcal is a purification ritual from a traditional Mesoamerican (mainly Mexico) that aims to release toxins in our bodies. Years later, the Temazcal ceremony is a gift to the world as it has helped many travelers in their spiritual journey and brought wellness to their emotional and physical state.

How, you may ask? To give you an idea without many spoilers, the Temazcal ceremony begins as you travel into the hut and sit in darkness which symbolizes a pregnant woman. Inside the womb, you will go through a rebirthing experience with the shaman’s guidance. At the center, hot stones release an intense heat of steam when water is poured, which makes you sweat a lot! So, as you spend hours sweating from the heat, you are actually releasing toxins from the body – Now, this is where the Temazcal improves your wellbeing!

“Temazcal Is Steeped In Mexican Heritage”

WELLNESS AND HEALING BENEFITS: CLEANSING THE BODY AND SOUL

With years of guiding Temazcal ceremonies, Erick Colibrí, our shaman friend, explains that the benefits improve our bodies’ physical and spiritual state. On the physical aspect, the intense heat makes us sweat profusely and carries out the toxins. Furthermore, shamans apply various herbs such as rosemary and rue to enrich the steam to clean our breath and throat. Also as we inhale the steam from the herbs, it clears the bacterias in our stomach and lungs.

On the other hand, the spiritual aspect of Temazcal reflects our intentions. As we travel into our inner spirit and aim to let go of negative emotions, the ritual allows us to let the feelings within you flow out. One of the ways of emotional release is with prayers and chanting throughout the hours of the ceremony. This aims to liberate the voice, allowing you to vocalize the pent-up emotions and let them burn to the hot stones to let go. You may feel the urge to cry and scream, and it’s normal. Remember that this is the time to express yourself, and treat yourself at the best Temazcal ceremonies in Tulum!
