Miguel Ángel Vergara


Miguel Angel is a Maya Priest and Master Teacher who lives and works in Yucatán, Mexico. He studied with Maya Elder Vin- cente Martín for 17 years and continues to work with the Elders and Priests who are keeping the Maya Sacred Wisdom very much alive today.

He teaches us how to connect with the Maya Masters of Light who are still at the sacred sites ready to guide us today as in ancient times. Going to the source of the Maya knowledge: to the ceremonies, rituals, mantras, sacred books, pyramids, temples, stele, pottery, paintings, sculptures, and oral tradi- tions that are available today, he finds the essence of their knowledge and then teaches it in a heart-centered style that connects rapidly and profoundly with his students.

Trudy Woodcock


Originally from Canada, Trudy has made Mérida, Yucatán her home since 2001. More than 20 years earlier while sitting on the top of the KuKuulKaan pyramid at Chichen Itza she heard a voice tell her that she would return and learn all about the Maya. When the time was right, after many life lessons and many visits to Mexico, she made the move.

Wanting to learn more about the ancient culture, not finding tours or programs that helped connect with the essence of the Maya in meaningful ways, and believing others felt the same, she created Iluminado Tours. Then, as if by magic, her teachers appeared. Miguel Angel Vergara opened the door to the spiritual knowledge of the Maya and her mission in life came into focus.

I learned so much on the trip, and when I read my journal I learned more! Both trips have been such a blessing and have elevated my spirituality and humanity. I believe we are all teachers to one another. I see so many energy shifts happening right now, and I’m happy to be a part of it.
