Temazcal: Sweat, Song & Spiritual Rebirth

A Temazcal is a sacred Mexican sweat lodge dating back to the 1500s. Its origins and rituals are rooted in Aztecan mythology, with the Temazcal representing the womb of the earth, where we go to be purified and reborn. Few other ceremonial rituals offer the depth of treatment that the Temazcal has to offer. In this episode, Yasmin and Robyn hear from Lupita Maldonado, Guardiana of Temazcal Ba'duhiini in Guerrero Mexico, to learn about the spiritual, physical and social benefits of this ancient practice.
