Maya Temazcal-- The ritual steam bath the Maya still use to purify body and soul.
Saunas are traditionally used for spiritual purification in many cultures, and on a physical level loosen and relax tired muscles, making them the perfect compliment to an Energetic Healing Massage or a yoga class. When used with respect and saftey, they can be a powerful part of the healing process. Leah will create a sacred space for deep guided meditation on this spa journey.
The ancient ruins at Copan have a large temazcal complex in the great courtyard, suggesting that it was an important feature of this great city of artisans and healers. For Maya both ancient and modern, world the Temazcal is believed to be the home of the Mother of the Gods, Ixchel, goddess of fetrility and patroness of midwives and healers. In some areas in Guatemala, the Temazcal is still a traditional place for birthing to take place.
As a symbol of the Holy Mother Earth, the ceremony of the Temazcal bath is used to reconnect humans with the natural cycles of life and regeneration.
transform yourself The Temazcal Spa Journey will both detoxify and clean the body’s epidermis as well as to symbolically embark on a spiritual regeneration, like a seed that sprouts up vigorously after its sojourn in the underworld. The Temazcal can produce very agreeable steam scented with fragrant plants that have a long history of promoting health and well being among the Maya. However, the temazcal may not be appropriate for pregnant women or people with high blood pressure or other health conditions.
Note: Due to the labor and resources required to activate the Temazcal, we suggest a minimum of three people for this experience.
