TEMAZCAL: CLEANSING RITUAL OF THE ANCIENT MAYANS

TOUR DETAILS

Travel to the community of Dos Palmas just north of Tulum to experience this unique healing, the Mayan equivalent of a sweat lodge. This ancient Mayan ritual is life changing as you learn about why the Mayan Shamans took people on this journey. Learn about the different stages of each “puerta” or door while experiencing the healing powers of herb drenched vapor water with the “abuelas” (hot volcanic stones). Sing, play insturments and chant during this healing inside the domes room that represents Mother Earth’s womb.

Once leaving the stone dome called the “temezcal”, you will be reborn again lighter and cleansed. Cool off and seal the healing with a dip in their freshwater cenote, a unique natural sinkhole only found in the Yucatan. From there visit the school where our charity Dreams for Mayan Children brought groups of volunteers to paint and build gardens and and ancient ball court where the children can play games their ancient ancestors did, such as Pok Ta Pok.
