The Maya Civilization is considered to be one of the best known great civilizations, rich in history, expansion and Mayan culture. The Maya were a highly advanced people who were experts in astronomy and mathematics, and who developed extremely accurate calendrical systems and detailed hieroglyphic writing.
They formed well established societies with a solid religious and political structure and were also highly skilled farmers and masters in agriculture. The Maya constructed outstanding and elaborate architectural structures which included temples, pyramids, palaces and observatories, all built unfathomably without metal tools. They also created beautifully ornate jewellery, textiles, pottery and fascinating works of art, many of which are now housed in museums across the world, leaving us with tangible testimony of their enigmatic history.
On this Mayan trip, you will discover the family life and spirituality that were the core of Maya society. Their daily life, activities, rituals and ceremonies were inextricably linked to all things sacred. Their cardinal point directions, colours, plants, and numbers were rich with meaning and significance and closely related to their deities. The Maya had a deep respect for the natural world around them and developed an abundance of knowledge in plant and natural medicine. They acknowledged that spirit was in everything and revered the energies and guardians in their surrounding environment and worked with these spiritual elements throughout their daily life and in sacred rites.
Opposed to popular belief, the Maya never disappeared. During the time of the conquistadores and European settlers, some Maya elders learned to merge their past traditions and knowledge, holding the essence of the ancient Maya teachings to be passed on to us today. Many of their written records were burned and destroyed, however, fortunately much of their knowledge continued to be passed down orally through the generations and is available to us today, if we know where to look.
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the Maya Cosmic Institute, to learn firsthand the sacred wisdom teachings of the Maya. On our Mayan Adventure, deepen your awareness, awaken your consciousness, and discover all the hidden secrets and prophecies which will be revealed through these teachings.
Our mission is to share the sacred Maya teachings through the study of their science, art, philosophy, and religion, as it is found in the Mayan temples, ceremonies, rituals, mantras, sacred books, pyramids, temples, stelae, pottery, paintings, sculptures and oral traditions that are available to us today. Each one is a unique masterpiece that helps us transcend from the physical/material level and rise to the level of the soul and spirit.
In our programs we derive our information directly from the source to find the essence of the Maya knowledge once more. Our goal is to share the message of light from the Maya teachers who are guiding us to the sac-be of the stars, linking us with the sun and the moon.
Much is being said about shamanism today but what does it really mean? Who is a Shaman? What does a Shaman do, and how do they do it? The Shaman was a very important part of the Ancient Maya Culture and they are still found in many of the Maya villages.
In this workshop Miguel Angel Vergara will lead you through a series of practices, meditations, ceremonies, and lectures to initiate you in process of developing the Shaman within you. He will help you understand the role of the Shaman in today’s global community and how to use this incredible power effectively with responsibility and respect.
In the past four years we have dealt with the four elements: earth, water, air, and fire. This year we are working with the fifth element: ETHER. Now is the time to be working with this mysterious and often forgotten element and we encounter the new cosmic energies of the 14th Baktun.
“The purpose of this workshop is to raise your Shamanic Awareness through activation of the "AKASHIC - ETHER" connected to the third eye and pineal gland, in order to access a consciousness of unity with the five elements of life..” ~ Miguel Angel Vergara
