MAYA TEMPLES OF TRANSFORMATION

Uniting the Knowledge of the Jaguar & Serpent

January 30 – February 7, 2020

Tour Description

Ancient texts describe temples as places where a person is “transformed into a god, into a bright star.” If so, then the enigmatic temples of the Yucatán fulfill that promise, and then some.

On this peninsula stand ancient academies originally set up by dedicated groups of wisdom keepers to promulgate the spiritual elevation of those on a quest for personal transformation. Their teachings embody a cult of knowledge stemming from a remote Golden Age.

For this adventure, we will be working with two of the most powerful Maya symbols: the Jaguar, representing the hidden knowledge and esoteric mysteries that can only be accessed through higher consciousness; and the Serpent, representing the sacred knowledge available to a person on a path of initiation that leads to wisdom.

Oxkintok & Maya Ceremony

After introductions from our tour leaders, and breakfast, we check out of Mérida and drive an hour to a sacred Mayan cave to conduct our opening ceremony.

Adjacent is the quiet site of Oxkintok, once a major ceremonial centre, to see among other things, a curious building with an interior labyrinth of tunnels once used for the highest level of initiation known as living resurrection. According to legend, this is also a portal connecting with Egypt through the sacred geometry and mathematics used in the Maya calendars. Oxkintok translates as Where Three Suns Continuously Burn. It is connected to Sirius, Orion, and Pleiades.

Our time in Oxkintok will be followed by a short drive to the beautiful Hacienda Uxmal which will be our home for the next two nights.

Overnight: Hacienda Uxmal B & L

Saturday, February 1

Uxmal

Just a short walk from the Hacienda stands Uxmal, one of the jewels of Yucatán. Freddy and Miguel will offer explanations around the site. According to legend, Uxmal was “a cosmic city that descended from the fourth dimension to amaze the eyes of humankind.” This is a fabulous temple city boasting several pyramids and sacred plazas with highly decorated façades. We’ll enjoy a full day of exceptional walking in a site that is lightly visited. This City of Kindness of Mother Moon carries strong sacred feminine energy, where women were educated to be priestesses and served in the temples, teaching the next generation to access the Sacred Knowledge. The people of Uxmal developed a great sense of intuitive skills, gaining a high level of spirituality in their lives. Beauty, poetry, dance, and the other arts were developed here.

Lunch is onsite, after which you can experience the site at will.

Dinner is on your own. And there’s an outdoor swimming pool to enjoy.

Labnah and Kabah

An hour’s drive takes us to Labnah, a handsome ceremonial centre with its fascinating arched entrance, and an air of the Far East, because there is a strong Cambodian feel to the architecture. Labnah is connected with the Wisdom Walls of Mother IxCheel. Here the Maya teachers carved great symbols in the temple walls in red cinnabar. The entrance arch is a portal in itself, connecting to other dimensions. There’s also an opportunity to walk one of the many zak-be — spirit roads reflecting the path of the Milky Way. These white serpent roads once connected all sites throughout the region in ruler-straight lines.

We then drive to Kabah, with its imposing palace featuring over 200 images of the rain god Chac. Kabah is the Strong Hands of God, where the Creator transforms your life and destiny, because you were made with Its powerful hands. As the Maya teachers said, “If you believe, you can create, and if you can create, you can manifest.”

Following lunch we transfer to the absolutely gorgeous Hotel Mayaland, set among verdant gardens and swimming pools. Just beyond its gate stands Chichen Itza.

Overnight: Mayaland Chichen Itza  / B & L

Monday, February 3

Ek Balam & Cenote Saamal

This morning drive to the beautiful temple of Ek Balam, with its pyramid and initiation chamber. This is the City of the White Temple of Wisdom, SAK-XOK-NAH. The great Jaguar Prophets from the stars designed the city of Ek Balam (Star Jaguar) to teach us the Mystery of the Hidden Knowledge in the universe.  Climbing the Great Palace, you will see the seven Jaguar Maya Teachers from the Stars and receive a unique spiritual teaching from each one of them.

We lunch at Hacienda Selva Maya in beautiful natural surroundings and ceiba trees, followed by a refreshing afternoon swim in the warm waters of the Cenote Saamal, the perfect way to cleanse for the transformative journey ahead.  After an hour’s drive we return to Hotel Mayaland.

Overnight: Mayaland Chichen Itza / B & L

Tuesday, February 4

Chichen Itza

We have arranged a 6 am sunrise entrance to Chichen Itza, when the site is quiet and empty and the energy strong. Chichen Itza is the cosmic university where one connects with the science, art, philosophy and spirituality of the Maya. This ancient school attracted students, initiates, and teachers from all over the Maya world. They graduated as AH-KUKUULKANS, masters of great knowledge and balance of spirit, science, knowledge and intuition. Today the Seven Golden Doors wait for you to open the Sacred Wisdom of the Feathered Serpent with the Light of the Sun.

We walk back for breakfast, then you return to tour the site alone for the rest of the day. Lunch is at will; the hotel is right next to the site, so you come and go as you please.

Overnight: Mayaland Chichen Itza / B & D

Wednesday, February 5

Balamkanche & Chichen Itza

A short drive then takes us to the sacred cave Balamka’anche’ for a special ceremony beside an underground lake and the Tree of Knowledge, made from the slow-dripping of limestone over millennia, connecting all three levels of reality. Protected by Aluxes (Maya Earth spirits), its name means Throne of the Jaguar – Serpent. The energy from the sky was grounded here. In ancient times, initiates came here to overcome their fear and test their resolve.
Following lunch, we return to Chichen Itza, where Miguel Angel and Freddy will discuss multiple aspects of the temples, and you will see why you were attracted to certain buildings the day before.

Return to Merida and a free evening to sample the restaurants and shops of this Spanish Colonial city. Dinner on your own.

Overnight: El Conquistador, Mérida / B & L

Thursday, February 6

Mayapan

Breakfast then we travel the short distance to the sacred site of Mayapan for our closing circle to give thanks to our spiritual guides and gifts we have received throughout the journey.  Mayapan means the Sacred Shield of the Maya, once the centre of the Maya world, allied with the Masters from Chichen Itza and Uxmal. Legend states how Lord KuKuulKaan arrived here one day to live for a long period of time. He taught the Maya about the structure of the Universe, the stars, sun, moon, and planets. He taught them about the sacred calendar and raised many of them to the level of Halach Uiniks, men and women with an extraordinary level of being, balanced in science and spirituality. KuKuulKaan then left them in peace and returned to the sky.

Following the ceremony Freddy and Miguel Angel will walk through this amazing site talking about the treasures found here. Freddy will also teach how to attract and move earth energy currents. There will be time to explore on your own before we head out for a special farewell lunch.

We then return to Merida for your last night here. Dinner is on your own and you will have time for any last minute shopping and to prepare for your flight home tomorrow.
