El Temazcal at Haramara Retreat

Haramara is now hosting a Traditional Sweatlodge Ceremony every Thursday evening. “El Temazcal”

This ancient medicine involves deep purification, through the respectful use of the sacred elements Earth, Water, Air and Fire, in a journey where we travel into Mother Earth´s womb in a dark, wet and warm environment.  After crossing the stages of the ceremony, we are reborn, to continue our path on this Earth with renewed life.

Stones are heated in Fire, Water is poured on the stones to create steam that will penetrate us at all levels to help us cleanse what we no longer need and to remind us of who we are.  In the Sweatlodge we share prayers and songs to reconnect us to Great Spirit. We become a family in the sacred circle, where we are all equal.

All guests are welcome to participate after they have understood the protocol that this traditional medicine involves.

*Join us on retreat July 12-19, 2014 at Harmara and experience this healing for yourself!

Here’s what Yoga Journal had to say about Haramara:
Sayulita, Mexico

A Huichol word, haramara means “mother sea,” the place where everything comes from, says owner Sajeela de la Borbolla. And with its warm, familylike atmosphere and fresh gourmet cuisine, this gracious retreat center does feel like the source of something sacred. “You’re taken care of from the moment you arrive,” says Ashtanga Yoga teacher Peggy Orr, who has led nine retreats here. Located just 40 minutes from Puerto Vallarta on the Riviera Nayarit;a sleepy stretch of coast dotted with resorts, the property includes a private beach and 12 acres of tropical jungle.

The yoga space is an open-air, thatched palapa with a 360-degree view of the ocean and rainforest. Guests stay in simple but beautiful palm-thatched casitas, with open-air walls on three sides that invite in the ocean breeze and the sounds of the pounding surf. Charming bathrooms, oil lamps, and canopy beds with handmade quilts complete the look—a blend of rustic and elegant that Orr describes as “Robinson Crusoe meets Architectural Digest.”

Don’t Miss: The homemade granola at breakfast, the spectacular moles at lunch, and the just-caught seafood at dinner—plus VIP treatment by the chef, who will prepare a meal based on your dietary needs.
