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.

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.
