In these sacred teachings following the format of our oral traditions, we will go into the depth of understanding of what the pipe is and its usage. We are venturing into the wisdom of the Original Instructions given to all Peoples. The pipe was  known from pre-Columbian times from the Algonquin tribes of southern Canada to the Araucanian people of Chile. 

These teachings are being offered  due to many requests to understand, and our observations of misunderstandings of the usage of our sacred ceremonies. This Teleclass series is to help, support, and guide our relatives who either are using the pipes without proper instructions or  knowledge, and for those that continue to be part of the sacred  ways to consider some of the knowledge we are sharing for their  use in their lives. 

  1. The soul/spirit companion of a hu-man (spirit in physical) -  February 8th
    In human history there has always been that one that is set apart from the many, that through hardships and suffering a connection was created to see beyond the physical. And those beings developed allies (nahuales)- supernatural, spiritual, and elemental forces that become the soul companions of those who carry and keep the sacred connection. To them, the spiritual allies are channeled through special tools. One is what we know as the pipe. 
     
  2. A soul covenant -   February 15th
    In gratitude of the recognition of a relationship with the supernatural, spiritual and elemental forces, a gift is developed through the release of suffering, allowing the development of wisdom.  The pipe becomes a form of faith, devotion, and prayer - a tool that encompasses the elementals. And through the elementals we connect to the life force of the universe. To express gratitude, an ancient inheritance is given to us as a way of prayer.  An alliance is created with the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms to bring the elementals into being-ness. 
     
  3. A universal and spiritual link -  February 22nd
    All inanimate forms that are created have a substance that communicate when activated or a relationship is created. All animated forms communicate with each other, such as plants, animals, and humans.  Through the pipe, a permanent link is created with Spirit for the service to Life.
     
  4. A soul commitment to Spirit and a TOJ (service/dedication to Life) -  March 1st
    In the spiritual awareness of a hu-man gifted with visions and instructions, the preparations begin to gift back for the wellness of "All My Relations." In the journey of a person gifted with life - an expression of gratitude is transformed into the special gifts of the "medicine people." So they begin to manifest Spirit through what we know as ceremony and prayer, and a lifelong commitment is made to carry the sacred through the IxTut. 
     
  5. An essence of elemental forces to channel spiritual being-ness   -  March 8th
    The shape and form of the IxTut is designed to connect the different physical kingdoms  and the elemental forces to create a channel for "spiritual and cosmic communication."  The ritual of the pipe becomes an ally to help us focus and align to Spirit.   

All classes will be shared live with the opportunity for questions, and will be recorded and sent as downloadable audio files.

Council to Strengthen our Alliances & Sustain the Spiritual Essence of Earth Peoples

Council to Strengthen our Alliances & Sustain the Spiritual Essence of Earth Peoples

This is a call to Earth Peoples and Light Beings to again strike the Council Fires for the next generation of the People Made of Honey, to strengthen our alliances and sustain our spiritual essence, calling forth the Light against the dark foes of Earth. As it was prophesied, we are witnessing the crumbling of the social, economic, political, and religious structures, but what is still alive, vibrant, and unchanging are the Original Instructions which tell us to unite, collaborate, and to keep the fire alive.

We will be holding ceremonies at the ancestral lands of the Patziapa Sanctuary on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala on the Mayan Calendar days of Belejeb (9) B'atz and Jun (1) Ajmak - days when the Maya come together to do ceremonies honoring the women (the birthers of the genetic code, the strands of Life) and pray for and bless the children, our future generations. (Click here to learn more about the energies of the Mayan Calendar we will be working with).

This Council is an open invitation to unify the clans and families, with no agenda, to make prayers, create and strengthen alliances, create agreements, and crystallize our visions. AS YOU WISH ~ our future will be created by our agreements. Our Mother Earth and our relatives need those of spiritual awareness, care, and love to unite and create world solutions, bringing the strength that comes from unity. We will ask each person to bring a staff 20" tall, no more than 1" thick. Through the ceremonies we will weave these staffs together in bundles of 13 and place these prayers at the sacred maloca of Patziapa and the heart of Chuitinamit, the ancient city of the Tzutujil Maya. Belejeb B'atz is to unify the clans and families. It is imperative that our unification is strong and lasting for our future generations. 

There are three ways to physically participate in this Council:

  1. Sign up for the full retreat (see below for more info) where we will be coordinating your journey from your arrival in Guatemala City until you depart (with arrival and departure dates as listed)
  2. Show up at Tiosh Abaj Hotel in Santiago Atitlan on Friday April 28th by 1 pm and stay until the morning of Saturday May 6th (see below) 
  3. Find your own way to and from Patziapa at the arranged times on the days of Belejeb B'atz and Jun Ajmak 

The full Council retreat will offer Tuj/Temescal (Mayan Sweatlodge) ceremony, working with our bundles, Beauty Way ceremony, & working with the gardens and medicine plants in addition to the Mayan Fire Ceremonies on Belejeb B'atz and Jun Ajmak.

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 shored of Lake Atitlan, the fertile land delights the senses and awakens a deep sense of spiritual and elemental connection.

Solidarity in Prayer

Solidarity in Prayer

This is a call to prayer: we invite people to gather for worldwide collaborations and ceremonies to be done simultaneously for unity and preservation of Life on the days Belejeb B'atz (Sunday April 30th) and Jun Ajmak (Friday May 5th):

... just as in the cosmic and planetary cycles of life, the Belejeb B'atz marks the cycle of the weaving of the DNA structure of Life (not just humans). We as spiritual leaders of the Maya are asked to care for the timekeeping and recognition of these cycles. So we prepare spiritually to weave the connection of elemental, spiritual and supernatural forces with us the hu-mans, so that the weaving creates sustainable, balanced, respectful and beautiful life. As we witness today, when that connection is not maintained, we become dysfunctional and destructive. Then we see that in these cycles of life, the Jun Ajmak Daylord becomes another important time for our children to connect through the web of life with ceremony and participation in the ascension of the hu-man.  (Click here to learn more about these energies...)

If you are interested in creating something in your area with your community, please contact Heddi at HeddiL@gmail.com to see how we can unite and collaborate!

We are also gratefully accepting offerings and gifts to bring for the fires & elders, as well as donations to support elders and community leaders to attend these ceremonies...

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.

Crystallize Your Vision Retreat with Tat Erick Gonzalez ~ Ceremonial Intensive at Patziapa, Guatemala ~

Learn to ceremonially Crystallize Your Visions at the sacred site of Patziapa with Tat Erick Gonzalez...
  
In this intensive retreat we will be focusing on what do you want to crystallize for your life? Do you have a vision you are called to crystallize? Learn how to ceremonially and elementally holograph your spiritual vision into a physical form and create a strategic plan to manifest this into our world.
 
This is a special time for personal focus with each participant to create a ceremonial visioning plan. Each day there will be a ceremony to clarify and anchor the energies, with the culmination on the Mayan day of 13 Imux (the full empowerment of our creativity and thought forms) when we will offer a Mayan Fire Ceremony to help ground and ceremonially activate our visions. 

Patziapa is a place of Soul rejuvenation and emergence, where you can renew your Spirit and Walk in the Beauty Way.

Elementally, spiritually, and ceremonially, Patziapa is a place to plant the seeds that we can carry anywhere in the world for the rest of our lives. It is a sanctuary along the shores of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, a sacred site that aids, supports and guides us through spiritual relationship, and how to crystallize our visions.

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
  
Your generosity helps cover costs for Guatemalan ceremonial materials for personal fires, food, land contribution, & support of medicine people.

Crystallizing Your Visions Spring Tele-Teaching Series

5 Class Series with Tat Erick Gonzalez 

Thursdays 5:30 - 7 pm PT
May 8th - June 12th    

Free Intro Class May 1st - Register Here!  

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.

"As we learn to stand in the Rukux - our essence, which is also in everything, we are able to crystallize the Light so that we can emanate sacred space. From here we will discover that  
the Rukux is not just our personal essence, but the essence of the Collective Circle of Life"
