Temazcal is a Mexican Sweat Lodge. It is therapeutic and utilizes heat, aromatherapy (a variety of plants are “steamed” in the lodge), song, ceremony, and prayer all for the purpose of healing. It is suggested not to make immediate plans after the temazcal, as it takes place on ceremonial time and there is no definitive ending time. There is also a pot luck meal afterward. The event will take place on Long Island; round-trip transportation provided from Manhattan.

Temazcal Ticket: $75

Includes transportation to Long Island and donation for our host with pot luck dinner to follow.
