The Maya temples and pyramids of Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula will be explored with a spiritual focus in a guided tour recently announced by Sacred Earth Journeys (http://www.sacredearthjourneys.ca/current-tours/maya-sacred-path-to-2012/tour-description).
The ten-day “Maya Sacred Path to 2012” tour, December 2 – 11, 2010, will include Chichen Itza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. There will be excursions to archaeological sites at Labna, Edzna and Mayapan, as well as subterranean caverns at Ik Kil and Xtakunbilxunan, an entrance to the Maya Underworld. A boat ride in the Rio Lagartos nature preserve will take the group to a picturesque fishing village, home to Mexico’s largest flock of flamingos.
“The Maya not only excelled in mathematics and astronomy, they also had a spiritual connection to the earth and the cosmos,” said tour co-leader Miguel Angel Vergara Calleros, who has been studying and teaching the Maya wisdom for more than 25 years.
The other leader, Dr. Richard Jelusich, Ph.D., is a teacher and director at the California Institute for Human Science, and author of two books on metaphysics and self-empowerment. Dr. Jelusich will reveal details about the Mayan calendar which some people believe predicts major changes to the world on December 21, 2012, as dramatized in the disaster movie “2012”.
In Izamal, Yucatan’s oldest city, the group will visit a Franciscan Monastery, built in 1561 upon the base of a Maya pyramid, and Miguel Angel will conduct a ceremony to activate the light and help participants to connect with ancient wisdom.
Four-star accommodations include a restored 17th century hacienda in Yucatan’s second oldest colonial city and a seaside resort on the Gulf of Mexico.
