ancestral ceremony of Mexico where the 4 elements are honored the earth and supreme consciousness, Temazcal means “house of hot stones”; In Nahuatl Tetl = stone, Mazitli = hot; Calli = house. Tlazolteotl is Mother Earth, she is considered the goddess of the temazcal, and it is believed that she devours what we no longer serve to transform it into fertile land and transmute it into new life. Within the temazcal, which is the belly of the earth, steam makes us sweat and take toxins out of our body; the temazcal will devour them, will absorb that sweat and transform it into fertile land, ready to feed the new life. Temazcal therapy is based on the fact of causing sweat in our body by means of medicinal steam. Sweat, by itself, already has a high healing value, but in addition, inhaling the steam increases the curative capacity of the temazcal. This steam is produced by the contact of herbal water with the red-hot stones. Each herb has different medicinal qualities: for example, chamomile helps clean the eyes and restores good digestion; while eucalyptus will help fight respiratory diseases, etc. In general, this ritual serves to relax, cleanse the skin, purify the body, strengthen the heart, purify the blood, heal from many diseases, open the mind, develop perception, find solutions to problems, helps meditation. However, the purification of our being within the temazcal goes far beyond the physical, because the spirit also undergoes detoxification through the words we pronounce, negative thoughts that we eliminate, the tears we release. The temazcal will devour those destructive thoughts and emotions to transform them into new energy; in short: we will live our own rebirth from the womb of the earth in the heart of the Andes of Cusco.

Peru Entheogens considers the Pitusiray mountain the most important, even more important than Machu Picchu, because the Inca never wanted them to know where they emerged from and where they opened the treasure and inheritance of their ancestors, since all that is hidden within this Sacred mountain, the Incas covered and hid all information that reveals their place of origin, confusing the conquerors away from this Sacred mountain where only the immense and enigmatic Shadows in movement with forms of Andean mythology are visible as a codeo f their Place of Origin.
