Wurundjeri Country ✧ Men's Temazcal with Grandmother Xquenda
Listen to the heart of the Earth to the rhythm of the drum, purify your body and nourish your spirit with the temazcal ceremony: A Mesoamerican tradition thousands of years old.
The word temazcal comes from Nahuatl (Mexican indigenous language) which means steam house.
The vapor given off by the grandmothers stones through the bath of medicinal plants and sacred water leads us to the deep purification of our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies.
Also during the ceremony, we will be guided through ancestral wisdom to a process of reconciliation with the sacred masculine and the sacred feminine, and purify our relationships.
This ceremony is a call to be reborn from within the Earth.
Will you join us?
