Last weekend, I accomplished the most physically (and mentally) challenging feat of my life. At 5,286 meters (17,343 feet), Iztaccihuatl is the third highest mountain in Mexico and the seventh highest in North America. And, over the course of 15 grueling but eye-opening hours, I hiked the “sleeping woman” – and lived to tell about it!
Dating back thousands years, the temazcal is a prehispanic tradition practiced throughout Mesoamerica. I share my experience being “reborn” through this ancient practice.
