How the Aztec Ceremony works
The Aztec Experience is a pre-Hispanic ceremony for the connection and healing of the emotions, body, mind, and spirit. This is highly recommended to those who are interested in learning about Aztec history in Mexico. Most of the clients who book this tour are in the wellness industry. This tour is divided into 4 parts:
- Fire ceremony: you will light the sacred fire in order for you to connect with your willpower. This will make you be more aware, open, and involved in the ceremony
- Mitotilizli, the Aztec dance: In here, you will learn a pre-hispanic dance where you will learn how to connect to the 4 elements: fire, water, wind, and earth.
- Copal incense ceremony: The copal ceremony aims to cleanse your bad energy with the copal incense. Here, our guides will lead you through your spiritual connection with yourself and balance your emotions.
- Temazcal, the Aztec sauna: Inside the temazcal, we will do the 4-door ritual where you can go deep into introspection, meditate, exchange words and feelings (current), while learning Aztec chants. Temazcal is said to be good for the body and has lots of physical benefits.
- Tokatiliztli, the Aztec baptism: After the temazcal, you will experience the rebirth into life. Once you go out, you will be baptized with your Aztec name.
- Tonalamatl: lastly, you will get to know yourself more through learning about the aztec calendar plus we will explain the forces and elements present during your birth day. This is why we ask for your birthday (day, month, year, and time) before the ceremony.
