These sweat lodge ceremonies are open to the public most Sundays at 12 p.m. Or you can make an appointment for a private ceremony with Katusa, our local medicine man.
Call Yadir Flores at 556-932-9839 to make an appointment or to check when the next Sunday ceremony is. You might find it easier to message him through his personal Facebook account if you don’t speak any Spanish.
You might also be able to get ahold of them through their Temezcal Mexicana Facebook page. At least according to Wikipedia, you can spell it temezcal, temascal, temescal or temazcal.
You should bring a towel to clean up with, plus a bed sheet or something to wrap yourself with when you lay down afterward outside for a quiet period.
Ceremonies last about 90 minutes. All activities are optional, so if you don’t feel like being slathered in cool mud (for some reason) or you can only stand one or two rounds baking inside the temazcal, you won’t be seen as less of a spiritual warrior.
The total cost for the experience will set you back less than $300 pesos, including the mud.
