  3. LCS Prueba México Program 2019 LCS classes are not first come first serve, they are first payed first served. To sign up, make sure your membership is current and covers the duration of this course. Registration requires payment. There is no refund Temazcal: ancient Mexican ritual. (purifying spirit). Instructor: Ricardo Yohualoceloth & Cesar Mata Course Fee: $800 MXN Course Dates: Aug 09, 2019 Course Time: Friday, 11:30 -4:00 pm aprox. Course Location: Tlatonal Community (Nearby Ixtlahuacan) Min/Max Students required: 10/17 Enrollment begins Jul 03 from 10:00 to 2:00 pm at the LCS Office Enrollment ends Aug 05 Description: According to Ricardo Navarro, leader of the community Tlatonal, the temazcal is an alternative for purification in different ways. In the past, people were born, prepared and healed in a temazcal. At present, this ritual has different contexts. Usually, it is a way of entering into introspection, different from psychiatry and psychology. Besides entering the psyche, it makes people touch their skin, touch their interior and express their thoughts in a single excursion, that is, they unite body, mind and spirit to transmute some physical circumstance or discomfort, or to transmute some psychological circumstance that is spinning in your head. And why does it transmute it? Because steam, heat and isolation cause you to enter a different way of thinking and act accordingly when you go back to the outside world. It is an encounter with Mother Earth. The temazcal is a ritual of Pre-Hispanic Mexico that consists of a steam "bath" with aromatic herbs and songs. The price includes round trip transportation. It is necessary that to participate men wear only shorts or swimsuit and women a long skirt and a blouse (all natural fibers). In the Tlatonal Community there will be a place to change clothes. At the end of the ritual, we will be served tea and fruits.

  11. American Football Scores in Chapala The Chapala High School, which is a feeder school to the University of Guadalajara, now has American style football teams. Both men and women's teams. One of the mothers, and manager of the team contacted LCS to see if we had interest in supporting this new endeavor. This is considered an extra curricular activity and school funds do not support it. As part of LCS' mission and vision of enriching our community's quality of life through the exchange of knowledge, expertise, culture, heritage and language we feel compelled to support this petition. After all with all of the NFL and CFL fans among us, we are likely new booster for the local High School. We made a deal with the team - if they plan and execute a fundraiser at LCS we'll divvy the proceeds in their favor to help them with their upcoming season expenses. Since them team members have been meeting with our events team and planning the Funky Ball. On June 7 the kids are hosting a carnival from 4-7 with a Funky Ball (so you can dance our cleats off) from 5-9, featuring music from the local teenage sensations The Waynes. Please come and support this cross cultural event, wear your favorite football jersey and play carnival games and dance the afternoon away. Hot dogs and hamburgers on the menu. $250/person, admittance only.
