Awakening Your Inner Jaguar

March 11 – 18, 2023

Travel with Maya Master Teacher Miguel Angel Vergara and Trudy Woodcock on a journey to the Sacred Mayan Sites of Southern Mexico.

This is a journey to awaken your Inner Jaguar and find the courage to step into your true power. The incredible sites of Palenque and Yaxchilan will open the way to connect deeply with the Heart of the Earth, with Ix’Mukane and her animal totem Balam, the Jaguar. From the sacred temples and exquisite art of the sites, to the powerful natural beauty of the waterfalls, rivers and jungle, all supported by the emerging energy of the Spring Equinox, this journey is designed to awaken your inner Jaguar, initiating a transformation that will continue long after the journey ends.



Miguel Angel Vergara

Miguel Angel’s Maya teacher once told him “If you want to arise your personal frequency you must go to Palenque”. Through ceremonies, meditations and teachings Miguel Angel will guide you to your own experiences of powerful spiritual energy in these amazing sites.

Trudy Woodcock

In meditation, Lady Zac Kuuk, said, “Telling our strories is a way to bring who we truly are into the present moment.” Throughout the journey Trudy will share messages and insights on the sacred femenine and Maya Priestesses channeled from this High Priestess from Palenque.

Palenque was the home of the great King Pakal Votan. In 1952, Pacal’s tomb was opened for the first time since his funeral in A.D. 683. His elaborately carved sarcophagus lid along with the sacred items found inside give us a detailed account of his final transformation. Equally important is his mother, Lady Zac Kuuk, who initiated a sacred feminine renaissance transforming the site of Palenque and inspiring much of the magnificent art to be found there. As you explore Palenque you will learn more about transformation on a grand scale.

The high point for many is going to be the visit to Yaxchilan. Only accessible by water, you travel in small boats along the Usumacinta River arriving at this Maya site to be greeted by lush green jungle and holler monkeys. It is truly a magical place with a peace and tranquility that belies the powerful work that was done here in the past. The ancient Priestesses have left their mark, their energy and important messages for those of us who follow. This is an inspiring site and doing ceremony here is a once in a lifetime experience.

Awakening your Inner Jaguar is key to transforming your life, your world, in meaningful ways.  This is an animal that steps carefully, deliberately, can see in the dark and will help you develop the courage and confidence needed to step into your personal power. Throughout the journey Miguel Angel will help you connect with the high energy of your Inner Jaguar through ceremonies, meditations, mantras, sacred knowledge and practices. He will be joined by Trudy who will share her teachings of the sacred feminine from High Priestess Lady Zac Kuuk.

With the guidance of Grandmother Ix’Mukane and her totem animal the Jaguar, this journey promises to be deeply transformational.

Each site impacted me differently.  At Palenque, I was embraced by the Great Mother.  I felt so held and so content.  The experience at YaxChilan was like drinking energy from a fire hose. The volume and strength of the energy was at a level I have never experienced until now.  Amazing!!  At Ponomo, I felt such peace and serenity.  The beauty of this soft energy felt healing and soothing.  My nervous system felt re-calibrated so that the energy moved softly and more slowly. It was the experience of being held by the Divine Mother.  – Michael Burkart, Massachusetts, US

Misol Ha Waterfall (B, L)

After enjoying breakfast at the hotel with your guides and fellow travelers you will set off of an amazing experience at the powerful waterfall Mishol Ha.

“As you walk behind the waterfall you enter a cave with a pool of water and your spiritual senses will rise to the point where are able to feel yourself in the sacred hands of Mother Water and profoundly connected with the womb of Mother Earth, “Heart of the Earth”. You will feel your energy rising with the surrounding beauty of this site.” Miguel Angel Vergara

(Overnight in Palenque at Hotel La Aldea or similar)

Palenque (B, D)

After breakfast together we take a short 10-minute drive to spend a full day at Palenque. 

“The Ancient Ones knew Palenque, “NAH CHAN KAAN”, was an open door to another realm or dimension. When you arrive and enter this Sacred Site all your molecules, cells and your whole being receive another level of vibration…and you will feel what it is to be in “another dimension of time and space.” Miguel Angel Vergara

This evening we will eat together and you can share your experiences and learnings with your fellow pilgrims.

(Overnight in Palenque at Hotel La Aldea or similar)

Palenque (B)

We return to Palenque to connect more deeply with the powerful energy of the site. 

“The powerful presence of the Jaguar is engraved in one of the Stelas representing Master Chan-Balum (Serpent-Jaguar)…He left us a wonderful message to raise our consciousness and received the Cosmic-Wisdom through the guidance of the Jaguar…Yes, the Jaguar of Light whose eyes will guide you as you walk between the Temples and Pyramids to meet your Inner-Warrior of Light who already lives within your Heart and is ready to perform the Great-Spiritual Transformation where Light touches all those willing to open their minds and hearts to the Maya Sacred Wisdom.” Miguel Angel Vergara

(Overnight in Palenque at Hotel La Aldea or similar)

Ceremony at Yaxchilan (B, D)

We have an early start today, stopping for breakfast on our way to Yaxchilan. Arriving at the Usumacinta River we travel the rest of the way by boat. 

You will then be guided in a ceremony to give thanks to Mother Earth and to honor the ancient Priestesses who awakened their inner Jaguar to give them the courage to fulfil their mission. 

“Here the Maya Priestesses studied with the Master Teachers to become experts at traveling in a deep trance to the stars, throughout the universe, to gather insights and messages for Mother Earth. These messages were studied and analyzed but the highest minds in the Maya world and would them become the Maya Prophecies.” Miguel Angel Vergara

We return, by boat, to our rustic jungle hotel for a late lunch/ dinner. 

This evening we will gather to share and reflect on our learnings and experiences together. 

(Overnight in Frontera Corozal at Hotel Escudo Jaguar or similar)

Yaxchilan; Travel to Palenque (B, L)

We begin this day with breakfast at the hotel looking out over the Usumacinta River then return for a second look at Yaxchilan, going deeper into the powerful energy of this special site. 

“This Sacred Ceremonial Center has an extraordinarily high vibration because the elements of Mother Nature are in perfect balance with the Cosmos and Humankind. Yaxchilan symbolically represents “The Sacred Path of the Jaguar Chilanes” the Priests and Priestess who reached the activation of their spiritual gifts using the harmony in the three levels of a Human Being: body, soul and spirit. They received the sacred wisdom represented in the stone steles at the site with the symbol of the “Cosmic Serpent” as a Vision Quest that guided them home in the stars, a representation of the Cosmos and Cosmic Knowledge.” Miguel Angel Vergara

We will enjoy lunch before making our way back to Palenque. 

(Overnight in Palenque at Hotel La Aldea or similar)

Pomona; Closing Ceremony; Farewell Lunch (B, L)

Pomona is the perfect site for our closing ceremony, giving thanks for all we have received on our journey and to ask for continuing guidance as we move back into our regular lives. 

“Pomona is a beautiful, peaceful Maya city where the Maya teachers rested their Spirits in the hands of Mother Nature. It is surrounded by jungle and rivers and you have a great opportunity today to take with you a permanent inspiration to elevate your Spirit in front of the Holy Presence of the Heart of the Sky and the Heart of the Earth. Pomona means “the Door that Connects Your Mind with the Mind of the Creator”. Here they performed many ceremonies using the “POM”, (Copal) incense to open the portal to the Sky allowing them to tansit in trance to the dimension of the mind of the Creator who created this planet, the solar system and the cosmos.” Miguel Angel Vergara

We will gather for a farewell lunch together before returning to Villahermosa. You will have the evening free for last minute shopping or to prepare for your flight home.
