The other day I booked myself and my partner Zac in for our second ever, Temazcal experience here in Oaxaca, Mexico. Last year during our visit to Oaxaca City we had our first experience within the ancient pre-hispanic sweat lodge, and immediately I was hooked.
The first time was daunting, as you have no idea what to expect. But, luckily the beautiful people who own Ceviarem Temazcal Oaxaca, Blanca and her husband (who is also the Shaman) Keny are fantastic at putting your mind at ease and explaining every detail of the ritual with you.
My second visit was incredible, I had a general idea what to expect and I had a specific goal for my ceremony. Each time, as I am told by Blanca and Keny is different. Your body will bring out different emotions and help you let go of anything you wish to allow you to heal.
So if you have never heard of the Temazcal Ceremony, you are probably wondering what the heck I am talking about. Let me explain.
