Temazcal Semilla with Gabriel Amezcua & Lisa W

Thursday 15th August 19:00 -21:00

The Temazcal Semilla is a ritual of transformation, a subtle poem of elemental magic, allowing us to confront challenge and connect with our capability to allow change within. Through combining the tradition of purification with medicinal vapours from the Temazcal and the four doors of the Inipi, this Sweat Lodge is guided by love, growth, and connection, inviting the transition from one state to another, from seed to legacy. Our exploration allows us to offer what no longer serves us to the stones, vapor, and earth. Making space for the warm embrace of this ancestral medicine and the connection to our roots, where ever they may sprout. This Temazcal is a gentle prayer, ideal for those who do not have much experience with Sweat Lodges or for those who enjoy mixed and dynamic methods.
