A temascal is a permanent, circular structure often made of volcanic rock, cement, and mud.

A relative of the Native American sweat lodge, the temascal (“house of heat”) dates back to pre-Hispanic Mesoamerican times, when it was used for purification after battle or a ceremonial ball game, general well-being, and to induce childbirth.

From May 23 to December 26, you are invited to take part in the 15th annual Dance of the Mother Earth at Rancho Lagunitas - kilometer 100 on the Mexicali-Tecate carretera libre between a village called El Hongo and the tollbooth.

Enter at the blue CESPTE structure in Cienega Redonda and follow the signs for 5 or 6 kilometers to the parking area, located at a distance from the ceremonies so as not to “interfere with the Energy” (exceptions will be made for those who cannot walk).

Join in the Dance and temascal from 9 to 11 a.m. and 2 to 4 p.m., Thursdays through Sundays.

Cleansing/blessings are offered from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

For more information call Kathy at (665) 104-6106.
