“This weekend was such a journey...a journey of love, acceptance and belonging. I felt united with Pachamama, it was like I was melting into the earth, feeling its embrace, blending in and completely surrendering in the process, I wasn't me any longer as I was a part of something much bigger and beautiful. Such a powerful journey!”
As challenging as it was, the Temazcal was so amazing!!!! Antonio's expertise, his strong energy and guidance provided a feeling of safety and reassurance. Clearly I wasn't the only one feeling supported, and comfortable stepping into this new experience outside my 'comfort zone' without knowing how uncomfortable it was going to get.
Also the support that came through from our beautiful mother earth, such a deep connection with Papatuanuku like I had never felt before. This was extremely grounding while also providing a sense of lightness, elation, peace and contentedness.
