Buddha Travel Approved Retreat: Maya Ceremony: A Direct Link to the Divine

February 17 – 24, 2018

The mysteries and magic of the ancient Maya can be captured and understood through their sacred ceremonies. Ceremony was their direct link to Spirit, their connection with the Divine, and was part of their daily lives. Through this link they had access to higher realms of consciousness, other dimensions, worlds of inspiration and knowledge that all the new technology of our era can’t come close to showing us. Our computers, smart phones, and other devices are great to share what we know. Ceremony connects us to what we don’t know. It connects us to the Cosmos, and the Maya were experts at doing just that.

This journey has two parts;

– the outer journey where you visit ancient sites, participate in ceremonies, and learn what is needed to create your own ceremonies

–the inner journey where you remember the sacred, reconnect with the Divine and claim the Spiritual power within you.

Miguel Angel Vergara will guide you through the ancient Maya sites and open portals to the Maya Master Teachers who are still there in Spirit waiting for you. As you walk through Uxmal, Mayapan and Edznah you may become aware of, and connect with, the countless ceremonies performed in their temples and pyramids throughout time. As you participate in sacred ceremony with Maya shamans you can reestablish your direct link with the Divine, with the Father and Mother, Heart of the Sky and Heart of the Earth.

Ceremony, when deeply understood and practiced regularly, gives access to higher consciousness and in higher consciousness lies solutions to many of the situations, both personal and global, that we face today. We invite you to join us for an exciting and fun week of exploring the true gifts of ceremony.

We will then be joined by a local shaman for our opening ceremony at Mayapan. “Mother Water will cleanse you, helping you to leave behind all worries and concerns for your daily life. She will cleanse you, all of you; your body, soul and spirit preparing you for the opening ceremony where you will create a link to the Infinite Cosmos.” Miguel Angel Vergara

We will have lunch together and return to the Hacienda where you will have a little free time before we gather in the evening for an overview of the Maya Cosmovision with Miguel Angel.

Feb 19: UXMAL (B, L, D)

Uxmal 2

Breakfast then a visit to Uxmal, the Maya Feminine University. This is one of the most important ancient Maya sites in the Yucatan with some of the most beautifully decorated temples. Miguel Angel will guide you through the main areas of this incredible site, following which you will have time to explore on your own and tune into the energies of the ancient ceremonies performed here.

“In this Sacred Feminine University the great Priestesses of ancient times are still there to teach you the Unconditional Love of the Mother.” Miguel Angel Vergara

Following lunch together there will be a special treat: a visit to the Chocolate Museum were you can learn the importance of cacao in the ancient Maya world. You will get to taste it too! We then return to the Hacienda for a free evening to relax, swim, and process your experiences.

Feb 20: XTACUMBILXUNAAN CAVE (B, L, D)

Xtacumbixunan Cave 2Today we transfer to the beach for more ceremonies, teachings, and relaxing. On our way we will stop at special cave for a Maya sacred meditation to connect with the Maya underworld. Here we meet with Grandmother Ix’Mukane, Heart of the Earth, and ask her to guide us on our journey and transmute any negative aspects we are carrying with us into Light.

“The Great Sun, Heart of the Sky, in perfect union with the Heart of the Earth will guide you, through the energy of the Jaguar, to transform your being.” Miguel Angel Vergara

Following our ceremony in the Heart of the Earth we travel on to the beach hotel in Campeche, arriving in time to see the sun set on the magical waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Overnight: Tucan Siho Playa: http://www.tucansihoplaya.com/sihoplaya.html

Feb 21: TEACHINGS (B & D)

We have two full days of teachings and practices at this beautiful, quiet, beach hotel. You will receive a Ceremonial Kit with all you need to create your own altar and learn the sacred meaning of each of the pieces. Miguel Angel will step through the structure of a Maya ceremony and explain how a deeper understanding of the Maya Cosmovision is part of it.

We will do ceremonies on the beach and whether you want to learn how to create and perform your own ceremonies at home or learn how to create a strong, direct link to the Divine and move into a level of higher consciousness, these two days of teachings, practices, ceremonies and meditations will give you the base you need.

Morning session: “Creating a Direct Link with the Divine through Maya Sacred Ceremonies.” Learn to create and strengthen your link with Father Sun and Mother Earth through a deeper understanding of the Maya Cosmovision as portrayed in their ceremonies. This connection raises your consciousness and from this higher consciousness it is so much easier to see where you are, where you are going, and how you are going to get there.

Afternoon Session: Meditation with a drumming and sharing circle.

Overnight: Tucan Siho Playa: http://www.tucansihoplaya.com/sihoplaya.html

Another day of teachings, ceremonies, meditations, practices and sharing. Morning session: “The Specifics of the Maya Ceremony”. Today you will learn about the altar, what each item represents, how to create and work with your own altar at home. You will receive a Ceremonial Kit with the basic items to use to create your own ceremony and will have a hands-on practice session doing just that. After our lunch break join us in preparing the altar and then participating in our Sunset Ceremony on the beach.

Feb 23: EDZNAH AND CAMPECHE CITY (B & FWL)

Edznah 3We have breakfast together and then say goodbye to our home on the beach. We are visiting the amazing Maya site of Edznah for our closing ceremony. In this final ceremony of our journey we give thanks for all we have learned, for the guidance and protection we have received, for the gifts of friendship we will be taking home with us, and a special thank you to the Heart of the Sky and the Heart of the Earth.

“The Cosmic Vibrations of the sacred mantras will activate your consciousness and spirit to touch again the marvelous energy of the Creation.” Miguel Angel Vergara

We will have a farewell lunch in the Colonial City of Campeche before continuing on to Mérida where you will have a free evening for any last minute shopping and to prepare for your flight home tomorrow.
