A Temazcal is a Mexican Sweatlodge, that represents the womb of our Mother Earth. The Temazcal bath purifies your mind, body, and spirit. Ancient ceremonies combine a cleansing sweat bath with herbs & flowers. The word Temazcal comes from the Nahuatl language used by the Aztecs: Temaz = bath and Calli = home.
You will learn about temazcales in the class and will have the opportunity to attend one after class hours. The temazcales are completely optional and have a suggested donation price of $30, and some require pre-registration. Temazcales are held in both Albuquerque and Bernalillo.
