Spiritual Bathing

Spiritual Bathing

Traditional spiritual bathing “Itz Ku” in the Mayan tradition is adapted with prayers to suit each client’s own faith.  Love is the essential element for all Spiritual Healing.  It is a force that creates a connection or conduit through which divine healing can flow.  Love is oneness, and oneness is a connection to all things.

Through the use of plants collected with prayer (prior to the appointment), blessed water, copal incense and a ritual which includes prayers (personalized for the client’s faith) into the pulses, the Maya believe that “spiritual ailments” can be released from the body and auric field.

These spiritual ailments include “susto” (fright), “pesar” (grief), “tristeza” (long-term sadness), “coraje” (anger), “el ojo/ojo caliente” (hot eye), “mal ojo” (evil eye), and “envidia” (envy, jealousy).  Although spiritual baths are especially lovely when done outdoors in nature, they can be adapted indoors when the weather does not permit a full bath outdoors.

Especially when there is emotional armoring, spiritual bathing is best done following an Arvigo® treatment or integrative massage.  Please bring a swimsuit, beach towel and a journal for processing the experience and plan to schedule it for an afternoon or weekend.  Inquire for rates.
