Temazcal & Cenote Experience (Private Groups)
Mexico has understood the benefits of a temazcal ceremony for centuries. Part-sweat lodge/part-sacred ritual, participants have reported feeling physically, emotionally and mentally healthier.
During the ceremony, herb infused water is poured over hot volcanic stones, generating steam that relaxes muscles and purifies the body from toxins and frees the mind from thought patters, thus creating total relaxation.
In addition to these physical benefits, the mind also frees itself from the thought patterns that occupy it allowing for total relaxation and purification. During the approximately two hours that the ceremony lasts, we pause to release excess heat, the elements and the different stages of life are represented, we pay respect to everything that makes life possible and we remind ourselves of what it truly is. essential, freeing us of any unnecessary weight in order to find our balance.
During our ceremony, you will enter a sweat lodge (an igloo-shaped hut). Once inside, hot volcanic rocks are placed in the center, and sage and copal infused water is poured over the rocks to produce steam.
While every ritual is different, this ceremony lasts around two hours which includes a shaman-led series of thanksgiving and chanting.
The ceremony begins outside the sweat lodge, next to where the stones are being heated. Standing around the fire we focus on our attention on our gratitude for the forest and earth.
Kneeling and kissing the ground as a symbol of appreciating our Mother Earth (the temazcal represents the belly button and the rebirth of the participants) we pay respect to everything that makes life possible and we remind ourselves of what truly is important in our lives, releasing unnecessary weight and thus rediscovering our natural balance.
After finishing our ceremony we visit a Cenote to complete our cleansing process as the Mayans used to do many centuries ago. When you are ready we strengthen our bodies with healthy, regional foods and seasonal fruit.
We finish this special day of exploration, discovery and healing with a spectacular sunset from atop a 42 meter temple situated within the Cobá archeological site (NOTE: DUE TO CURRENT COVID MEASURES, WE ARE NOT INCLUDING THIS PART OF THE TOUR ANYMORE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE). Since we get the chance to be here after tourist hours, we can experience this magical place all to ourselves, riding bikes among the majestic trees and feeling the strong Mayan energy of this sacred ground.
