Temazcal, ancient steam lodge ceremony

The temazcal is an ancient steam lodge method where we receive the vital force thru the blessing of the four elements: earth, water, air and fire.

It is said that the ceremony is the first and oldest steam lodge method that exists and has been conserved by the Mesoamerican Indians up to our times.

The ceremony takes place in an atmosphere of respect and humility with an specific purpose. It is a space our of space, a time out of time, an interior here and now, an encounter in the darkness, where the light is born. The purpose is to leave all that no longer serves us,  what no longer belongs to us and which damages us. We come to regain forces, open up our heart, our consciousness and to remember our original purpose, “enjoy the life and to do well to others”.

In order to light up the sacred fire, volcanic rocks are heated up and placed them in to the center of the temazcal along with aromatic healing herbs. Ones we are inside and in the darkness we pour water into the heated volcanic rocks and create steam, the original temazcal ceremony utilizes prayers to guide chants and plays drums and instruments to accomplish our purpose.

The ceremony of the temazcal is a beautiful moment full of power in your life, an opportunity to reconcile with ourselves, with our relationships, life, health, force and with our spiritual.

3 Great Ideas For Autumn Weddings At The Beach

Cabo San Lucas is one of the most important wedding destinations around the world, especially when during the fall season, the perfect time to get married.

Hello October! Here at the Solmar Resorts we are excited because weddings are just around the corner and our wedding coordinators are getting ready to start making your dreams come true. 

Wondering what trends are in this year? Here are 3 fantastic ideas that brides are using this autumn season for weddings:

1. -  Use colors like pale green, brown, pale orange or hot orange, pale pink mixed with hot pink looks goes well, maybe you can mix these colors with a turquoise, beige color or white so we can make it more beachy.

2. - If you are getting married in Cabo, no need to bring super fancy wedding attire, we know it’s your wedding day and you must look like a queen and a king, but you can do it even when you are on the beach.  We suggest you to buy something fresh and nice, it can be a cocktail dress made from light and flowing material and for the men, maybe some white and beige linens and light cottons.  

Don’t forget that in Cabo the sun always shines and we don’t have a lot of trees with leaves to fall all over the place, so please do not imagine a classical autumn wedding. Always think, that you will be near the ocean with amazing weather.

3. - Lastly, don’t forget that in Cabo sometimes it’s kind of windy at night so If you are planning to do candles as centerpieces, it’s very important to rent or bring candle holders as high as possible so the wind cannot blow the candles out, we recommend to bring electric tea lights if you would like to have votives. Also for name placement tags, if it’s a small wedding you can do frames with the names so they do not blow over or if it’s a big wedding you can bring holders for the tags or make something at home, for example craving the names on wood plaque, perfect autumn touch.
