Temazcal is a Native American sweat lodge ritual that rids the body of toxins through sweating and renews the spirit through ritual. Temazcal takes place in a circular, dome-shaped structure that represents the womb, symbolizing rebirth and purification. The ceremony begins with the group building a sacred fire, creating a mandala and altar, and communally praying. Within the Temazcal, red hot rocks are placed on the fire, and participants experience deep release and catharsis as they sweat and pray. Afterwards everyone bathes in the cool waters of our on-property river, washing away the old. Our facilitators are trained in traditional Nahuatl and Lakota indigenous traditions. They have facilitated hundreds of ceremonies and are equipped to care for participants during their experience inside the lodge.
