Traditional Mexican Temazcal—“Purification Lodge”,4:30 PM June 30,

Traditional Mexican Temazcal—“Purification Lodge”,4:30 PM June 30,
2012 – is a time to discard the old ways and welcome a new culture of brotherhood and love…..

Venus goes direct in Gemini on June 27, it’s a time to be looking towards forward relationships rather than flirting with the past. It is also a time to enjoy the “spice of life”. Plus with Mercury in Leo, it’s a time for “childlike and innocence,” especially in all forms of self expression coming from the heart.  Just before the full moon on July 3, is an excellent time to complete any unfinished business or end unresolved relationships, or release anything which does not serve your higher good.  Let 2012 be the year to release the past and welcome the New Culture…..

About the Ceremony, and benefits:

The Purification ceremony is intended as a spiritual reunion with the creator and a respectful connection to the earth itself as much as it is meant for purging toxins out of the physical body.

Mental Healing – The ceremony gives its participants the opportunity to free their minds of distractions, offering clarity.

Spiritual Healing – The ceremony offers a place for introspection and connection to the planet and the spirit world.

Physical Healing – The sweat gives anti-bacterial and wound-healing benefits. A full Medical Review (pdf) of the health benefits and risks of Native American sweat lodges were published by the Indian Health Service in 1998. http://healing.about.com/od/sweatlodge/a/sweat-lodge-ceremony-benefits.htm
