    Harry, due to whatever rule in effect, Merrill Lynch can't call my MX land line but they can call or text my MX cell. Would that work?

  7. Temazcal: ancient Mexican ritual. (purifying spirit). Instructor: Ricardo Yohualoceloth & Cesar Mata Course Fee: $700 MXN Course Dates: Feb 12, 2019 Course Time: Tuesday, 12:00 -5:30 pm Course Location: Tlatonal Community (Nearby Ixtlahuacan) Min/Max Students required: 12/17 Enrollment begins Nov 26 from 10:00 to 2:00 pm at de LCS Office Enrollment ends Feb 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 food. To sign up, make sure your membership is current and covers the duration of this course. Registration requires payment.
