As we continue to evolve inside the energies of the New Era of the Oxlajuj Baktun that began on Dec 21, 2012, we are finding that there is still much to be healed from the past so that we can live into our full potentials. By focusing on healing our ancestral wounds, both collectively and individually, we can emerge as spiritual, joyous, balanced, and whole beings ~ setting the stage for a better future for the next generations.            
(For an interesting article on ancestral memories in DNA, click here)

This special ceremonial retreat at soul-rejuvenating Patziapa will offer:

  • Teachings and time working with ancestor altars (participants will be encouraged to bring items to create their own ancestor altar)
  • New Moon ceremony on Caji (4) Ajmak to work with our ancestral DNA inheritance and what we want to evolve from and crystallize into
  • Temescal (Mayan sweatlodge) ceremonies for purification and healing on the days of Oxlajuj (13) E when we connect to the full empowerment of our destinies & Wuku (7) Kawok when we find balance through our purification  
  • Mayan Fire ceremony on Jun (1) Aj to make offerings to the Mother Earth and the ancestors 
  • Time with the medicine plants, gardens, and mystical waters of Lake Atitlan 

(We have many opportunities to learn more about  the Mayan Calendar days ~ please contact us!)   
 
Patziapa is a living 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.

This day also falls on a full moon! We will be ceremonially creating flowering staffs to help us reach the full blossom of our potentials by using the medicines of the flowers to cleanse, heal, and inspire us. It is time to pierce the earth with the staffs and drop the seeds- the time that we decide that this is what we are going to do, and we ground that intention to fulfill it.  The following day on 1 Ix we will take a pilgrimage to leave our staff as an offering to a sacred site of the Mother Earth.

"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.  

Information about your Guatemalan Retreat:

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)
