Experience a connection to your inner self, converging with the natural elements and the voices of the wise ancestors in our Sweat Lodge Ceremony Experience. You'll participate in an ancient indigenous "sauna-like" ritual that seeks to transform you into a fearless warrior. Join our Shaman around a ceremonial altar. He will offer all the participants some Balche wine (a sacred non-alcoholic beverage made from honey and tree bark). Here, he will also extend an invitation to the 4 oldest gods (the 4 elements of nature) to participate in the ceremony and share their wisdom with you. Then, he'll invite you and the 4 oldest gods (also known as Abuelitos - grandpas) to enter an igloo-shaped stone structure that symbolizes the womb of mother earth. Before entering, you and the other participants will sound Mayan ceremonial seashells and make Copal (Mayan ceremonial incense) offerings to ask for guidance and protection from the gods during the ritual. Once everybody is inside, incandescent volcanic stones will be placed in the center, and the door will be closed. Then, in total darkness, the Shaman will toss water into the rocks to turn the interior into a sauna-like room. The 4 oldest gods will share their wisdom with the participants to conquer their fears and thus become brave warriors. After completing a 4 step ritual process, the Shaman will turn on the light, open the door and give you a warm water baptism to celebrate your rebirth as a warrior. At the end of the ceremony, the participants will have the option to swim in the fresh waters of the cenote and will be offered fresh fruit and water.
