Mexican Temazcal Sweat Lodge Ceremony - Noisily Festival

Mexican Temazcal Sweat Lodge Ceremony

with Root of the Gods

£55 book via Kaboodle.

A type of sweat lodge, a Temazcal is a purification ceremony; for relieving stress, cleansing toxins from the body, releasing negativity and revitalising life force. Especially beneficial for your immune system & balancing mind, body & spirit. Essentially, it is a steam bath in a natural dome. Large rocks are heated on a fire outside, then placed inside a natural bowl in the centre of the dome & doused with water and herbs. The medicinal steam & the power of the natural elements help us to open and cleanse.The whole process of 4 rounds lasts between 1-3 hours depending on your needs, you can dip in & out as you like & are supported throughout.

Expect to arrive at a campfire, with friendly faces & warm welcomes. Once the hot rocks are heated, you will enter the sweatlodge itself, where you will be seated on the ground in a circle, in very low light with around 10-20 other people. The rocks are gradually brought into the circle in 4 ‘rounds’ – between the rounds the dome is opened & sometimes you take this opportunity to drink water or pee! (detoxing happens fast)

During the rounds there may be speaking, drumming, singing or meditation, the ceremonies flow naturally & are a journey always. You can share music, words or just sit (or lie) & enjoy! After the ceremony we will be sharing fruit, water & hugs, another chance to connect, hang out, or sneak off to rest! Whatever you feel…

Originally used by the ancient Mayan communities of Mexico & Central America to restore mother & child after childbirth, it is often referred to as ‘Womb of the Earth’ as its energy is distinctly nurturing, bringing us closer to mother nature.

The temazcal is a key part of indigenous medicine, used widely for thousands of years for the treatment & prevention of disease, stress, weight loss, depression, skin conditions, fibromyalgia & much more.
