I have been wanting to experience a temazcal for ages. Any sort of spiritual clearing or healing activity always gets my attention, and Mexico is a ideal place for such encounters. Here is what I learnt from my experience at a Mayan sweat lodge.
Two months ago, I made the decision to leave my secure job, my long term love, my beloved home, my hometown and all of it’s familiar comforts, and my family and friends. I sold most of my belongings, packed a backpack and came here to live on a beach in Mexico. I did not know anybody in Mexico, had never been to Tulum before, and I don’t even speak Spanish (gasp!)
