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.

Our Project
Los Cabos is growing by leaps and bounds due in large part to the immigration of families from mainland Mexico. Many of them arrive penniless and unemployed with hopes for a better future that may never materialize. While waiting for their situation to improve, families often find temporary housing in shanty towns under subhuman conditions.

These families need support. Solmar Foundation is here to help:
  • Families living in poverty
  • Abandoned kids
  • Education programs
  • Health assistance for Kids
  • Elderly
Casa Hogar Cabo
Los Niños del Capitán
Red Autismo
Todos Santos Orfanato
