"Harmonizing with the Universal Biorhythm ~ Living into the Mayan Calendar" Ceremonial Retreat at Patziapa

October 9 - 19, 2014 (all-inclusive)
October 11 - 17 (retreat time at Patziapa only) 

This retreat will focus on the Earth Wisdom teachings of Mayan cosmology and the ceremonial principles of the Mayan Calendar. Contrary to the hype of 2012 the Mayan Calendar did not end, but is a living time-keeping wisdom that guides and influences the destiny of all life in our physical and spiritual dimensions. It is used as a guide for ceremonies, healing, divination and for harmonizing ourselves with the universe and our own natural biorhythm.  

As we continue to evolve inside of this New Era and shed our old ways and beliefs, these teachings can help guide us to understand the various pulsations of divinity within which all life forms are evolving. They can also support us to attune ourselves to our unique pattern and connect with the Nahuales (spiritual forces) that guide, protect and influence us and we can begin to understand the greater cosmic energies that we are in relationship with.
This retreat will take us into the 13 day week of 1 Ajpu- the creation story of the Maya and the journey of the hero twins as they set the destiny for humankind...   In addition to many teaching sessions on the Mayan Calendar and cosmology, we will connect to this special time through temescal ceremonies (Mayan sweatlodge), Mayan Fire Ceremonies, a pilrimage to a sacred site around Lake Atitlan and time in the gardens at the living sanctuary of Patziapa. 

Patziapa is a private sanctuary offering soul rejuvenation and connection to the ancestors on sacred land in the heart of the Mayan world. Surrounded by three volcanoes and situated on the shores of Lake Atitlan, the fertile land delights the senses and awakens a deep sense of spiritual and elemental connection.

Waqxaqui (8) B'atz Ceremonial Retreat  at Deer Mountain

Waqxaqui (8) B'atz Ceremonial Retreat at Deer Mountain

Renew your spirit and walk the beauty way. 

Tues May 13th - Sun May 18th, 2014
(5 Q'anil - 10 Aj)

Join Tat Erick Gonzalez and Nan Heddi Neale as we work with the important energies of the Mayan Calendar that take us through the "Mayan New Year" of 8 B'atz. We will be giving to ourselves, each other, and all of life through teachings, sacred gifting ceremonies, sweatlodges, a community Mayan Fire Ceremony, and personal Mayan Fire Ceremonies focusing on what we want to crystallize in our lives as we begin this new cycle of life!

The day of Waqxaqui (8) B'atz in the Mayan Calendar is celebrated by millions of the Maya throughout Guatemala and Central America as the day of Spiritual Renewal for all life that has come through the matrix, when another 260-day (9 month) cycle of Life is completed (this day is often referred to as the "Mayan New Year"). The energy of B'atz is that of the threads of life, the cords of energy that flow from our umbilical cords and connect us to all of our past and future generations, with 8 being the number of completion. It is a powerful opportunity to join together around the Grandfather Fire to weave our thoughts, prayers, intentions, and actions together for a better future on our Mother Earth. We offer generous amounts of ceremonial gifts to the fire in gratitude and payment for our lives and the spiritual and elemental forces that guide and protect us. We invite you to join us and weave your unique thread for peace and healing of our Mother Earth and each other!    
This ceremony is being opened up for the local communities to join us for the day... (see details below)
Loving contribution for full retreat:  $750  
Weekend only (Fri evening - Sunday): $400

Do you have a vision you want to crystallize? Learn how to bring a spiritual vision into the physical through the journey through the elementals- the building blocks that make up our physical world, the bridge between Spirit and Matter. As we continue walking into the New Era, the spiritual awakenings are happening more often and messages from Spirit are coming through more and more quickly and clearly. Learn how to take these and bring them into the physical world, so that we can bring the sacred balance back in to the physical as well as the collective consciousness.

the Rukux is not just our personal essence, but the essence of the Collective Circle of Life"
