Temazcalli, Ancestral Therapy Space in Lancing

Hello, my name is Marcela Enriquez Wakeham, and I am a ‘Temazcalera’ healer - or Native American sweat lodge medicine woman – initiated in the therapeutic Mexica tradition.

Welcome to our GoFundMe page, created with my husband to help realise our vision to build a traditional, Mexican therapeutic sweat lodge, or Temazcal, in the back garden of our home in Lancing, West Sussex.

This Go Found me page is to help with the construction and of a Traditional Sweat Lodge, and facilities, in Lancing Town.

Which will be the actual Temazcalli construction, the big chimney for the fire, composting toilets, rustic shower and a changing room.

The benefits of having the opportunity to experience this type of ancestral therapy are many, and are listed below.

HEALING BENEFITS OF SWEAT LODGE CEREMONIES

PHYSICAL HEALING
• It has anti-bacterial and wound-healing properties, and can help fight infections by creating a temporary fever state in the body which some say lessens chronic inflammation.
• The heat is also a great remedy for arthritis, muscle pain, and skin disorders, which can be improved by the increased blood flow at the surface of the skin
• It cleanses the lungs and purifies the digestive system.
• Tones the nervous system, stimulates the circulatory system and relaxes the muscular system,
• Eliminates toxins and stimulates the immune system.
• Helps regulate female reproductive system and blood cycles.
• Regulates metabolism and purifies the blood.
• Relieves fatigue by producing abundant negative charged ions.
• Helps in weight loss, relieves fluid retention.
• Virtually every organ of the body is stimulated and purged of toxins.

MENTAL HEALING
• The Temazcal ceremony frees the mind of distractions as you enter in to a time of introspection in to the darkness of the womb.

EMOTIONAL HEALING
• The Temazcal in its heart is a symbolic returning to the mother’s womb giving us a re-connection with our lost inner child. Inside the Temazcal the healer will open a space to express the deep feelings in a sacred and supportive way.

SPIRITUAL HEALING
• The Temazcal ceremony is intended as a spiritual reunion with the creator spirit, and a respectful connection to the Earth itself as much as it is meant for purging toxins out of the physical body. The steam will offer clarity to connect with your higher self and purpose, generating positive changes created by high intentions of connection, trust, gratitude, appreciation and fraternity.

Your support means a lot for me as I have been given this gift to share with the people, I am a passionate in what I do and I will offer the best service for myself for the attendees and for the Great spirit.
