Male Participant: Sometimes in your daily life you get so caught up in negative things, talking about negative things, focusing on negative things in your head.

I’m a pretty positive person — but I know that there are times that I could use feeling a little lighter, looking at things a little bit more positively.

Local Guide: “The place is called a Hacienda Cancun. It’s very nice. We’re surrounded by this amazing jungle. You feel the energy in this place as soon as you walk in.

And the ritual of the Temazcal (basically is two words together by the language of the Aztekas, which means “the House of Heat”) is just to let it out.

Sometimes we get so caught up with work and other things that we normally do in normal life that we forget about situations like this, and we forget about who we are.

Karla Female Participant: When we came down here, I met some amazing people on the plane that told us about this place. I don’t really know what’s about to happen.

Local Guide: It’s not Voodoo.
Karla, Female Participant: It’s not Voodoo; he’s a shaman.
Male Participant: Better not be voodoo, Karla.
Karla: He’s a shaman.
Male Participant: So lush, guys.
Karla: It’s beautiful.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Male Participant: We came to meet Totecshu. It was bad-ass; he had these tattoos.

Local Guide: He’s asking for permission, because we’re usually not allowed to you know make a little documentariess inside these kind of places.

It’s just to communicate with with your ancestors; they knew back then that by doing this us right now in the future we will communicate with them by doing this kind of ritual, so basically it’s made for us in the New World.

Let’s get started!

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Local Guide: This thing comes from a tree, a tree called cabal. Do you guys remember those trees that we saw; that the copal tree.

Totecshu, Shaman: This purifies the soul and make some arrangements in your soul.

Kiss the lofalyo.

Local Guide: That’s were the sun comes up, so we want to ask him permit to get into the Temazcal.

The Temazcal is constructed from volcanic rock and cement and is usually a circular dome.

It’s weird to me that they use thirteen stones together amazing heat. Why thirteen? It is because thirteen is a lucky number, basically; it’s a really powerful number.

It’s interesting because in our world normally 13 is bad luck — but here it represents good luck. So if that kind of situations were people just misunderstand the meaning from many other things,

When they get that stone, they bring it inside the Temazcal. And when the Agila the flavor which is the guy who’s helping him to bring the stones in he says ‘Piedras de fuego’ which means stones of fire.

And we say, ‘Welcome Grandparents Stone’.

So you can make me yourself sweat with heat; the sweat in the dark, so you can see there the way outside.

Totecshu, Shaman: You want to see the wedding side.

Local Guide: Normally don’t put candles or any type of light in here, but we want to do it so we can see, not only feel the ritual.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Male Paritipant: Karla’s emotional.

Karla: Emotion. It just felt so deep, you know, like it’s just something inside I felt was stirring, and it was just very very powerful that I could I couldn’t help crying . . . I just started to cry — and I couldn’t stop. I feel like I let all my bad stuff out, you know what I mean.

Local Guide: I needed something like I let all my bad stuff out. I need to have all the bad energy that I had from so long released.

Male Participant: You felt that cleanse; what he was talking about. You take those toxins out of your body. We’re polluted mentally, physically with so many things, with negativity.

And the whole point of this is to come and release and flush it all out. We certainly watched Carla release it today. I got to say looking at Carla after she came outside.

I knew she was crying because I could hear her the whole time . . . and I waited for her to grab my hand because I didn’t want to interrupt her moment, hey.

But he did say something to you that really touched me. And I think that there’s a reason for that. But we’re gonna close it this way and we’re gonna turn this camera off.

Thank you so much. I love you!
