THE BELLY OF MOTHER EARTH
WHAT IS THE TEMAZCAL?
It is an ancient practice for spiritual and healing purposes that seeks to emulate the therapeutic effect of hot springs, stimulating the body to emulate a feverish state through heat to activate the body's defenses. Immersed in a cubicle made with organic raw material, in complete darkness and heated by red-hot volcanic stones, which emit infrared rays, medicinal plants previously cooked in water are used for later use on the stones, also called grandmothers. The steam that is generated opens the pores, through which the phytochemicals of the plants enter to generate various therapeutic effects. Inside the steam house, people are guided with songs and with the medicine of the word.
WHAT ARE ITS BENEFITS?

HOW IT IS PERFORMED?
Once heated with firewood for more than 2 hours, the stones are placed in the Temazcal. The plants are cooked in parallel. People enter bathing suits with ceremonial respect. People may stay there for an average of 2 to 4 hours, depending on the purpose and vision of those who wear the Temazcal. Inside they will be guided with songs and words, all emulating to be brothers within the womb of the same mother earth.
WHERE IS IT DONE?
We work in Temazcales in the Xochimilco region, although we can also go to others. This is defined according to our calendar of ceremonies.
Those interested will receive a preparation guide and elements necessary for the activity. What is important is a short fast and a diet for a few days beforehand to improve the experience.
