Tour Description

Flight of the Stellar Serpent is the second of two journeys offered in 2007 in our Maya Sacred Path to 2012 program. This is a tour series that will be offered each year leading up to 2012, the end of the Maya calendar. Each program is created to help you prepare for and deal with the many changes and shifts happening in the world around you. In this journey we will be traveling to Palenque in Chiapas and Tikal in Guatemala on our continuing yearly trips to study the cosmology of the Maya. The focus of all of our trips is always about understanding our true spiritual nature.

In Palenque, we will visit many of the sacred buildings including the Temple of the Inscriptions, which houses the tomb of Lord Pacal Votan. Recent studies have revealed hidden, esoteric meanings in the design of the amazing Sarcophagus Lid of this tomb. These meanings and teachings were only meant to be “discovered” at the end-times of the Mayan Calendar, when the evolution of human consciousness was once-again capable of discerning the cues to synchronizing with natural, cyclical galactic harmonic frequencies. This is also an indication our spiritual development is such that we can surpass a mental understanding of Mayan teachings to a true awareness of our nature.

Tikal, like many other Mayan sites, was a center for astronomy and the keeping of sacred calendars that marked not time, but evolution of consciousness. The stelae there offer fantastic insights into the cosmology of the Maya and the entry into the dark-rift (Galactic Mother) for the purpose of rebirth and the new coming-forth of ages. The sacred site of Tikal is situated in the middle of a huge untouched Peten jungle preserve. The only electricity is powered by an electrical generator, so if you’re planning on checking your E-Mail, it better be “Etheric Mail”. Without all the modern conveniences, it will be easier for us to focus on the real meaning of this sacred site as a marker for galactic and soul-alignments. Keep in mind as you walk through Tikal, that satellite imagery of Guatemala reveals that only 2% of the ancient structures have been uncovered.

This program offers a unique opportunity for personal transformation. Each one of us will begin the journey as a serpent with the possibility of being reborn. Each day, as we travel through the sacred land of the Maya, participating in ceremonies, meditating, and visiting the ancient sites, we will shed our old skin and acquire a new one. At the end of our journey each of us will become, symbolically, a new Kukulkan, a feathered serpent. The essence of the feathers represents our inner spirituality and when they are connected to the serpent’s body, which represents the wisdom and knowledge of Mother Earth, we become teachers linking heaven and earth, spirit and matter. 

Joining us again as our group leaders to guide us in our spiritual work are Maya Master Teacher Miguel Angel Vergara and Dr. Richard Jelusich. Richard and Miguel Angel, working together and individually, will use meditation, stories, legends, rituals, mantras, and ceremonies to awaken our higher nature, activate our chakras, and study more seriously the higher purpose of the Maya. Joining us for some of these ceremonies will be local shamans who will also help guide us and heal us, on our journey. Richard & Miguel Angel will lecture on Hidden Meanings on the lid of Pacal Voltan’s Sarcophagus, and Richard will lecture on The Mayan Calendar and Celestial Alignments. 

Please join us on this transformational journey – but please book early to avoid disappointment – our tour filled quite quickly last year, and we are limiting participation to 30 people. Also please note that it is not required that you commit to every year in the program, you may join us for one or more tours as you please. Each tour is a stand-alone program.

Our journey begins in the city of Villahermosa, the capital city of the State of Tabasco. You will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel. Since the international flights arrive at night the group introductions will be tomorrow morning. 
(Overnight Villahermosa)

 

Villahermosa in Tabasco in Mexico

After breakfast and introductions to our group leaders we will visit Parque de La Venta, a one-of-a-kind outdoor archaeology museum. Giant stone heads from the Olmec civilization can be seen here in a beautiful park setting. One head is eight feet high and weighs about 24 tons. The Olmec were the oldest civilization in Mexico, preceding the Maya. They are considered to be the mother civilization of the Maya.

Travel through Tabasco into Chiapas and on to Palenque for the start of the Flight of the Stellar Serpent. Join Richard and Miguel Angel for a lecture tonight on Hidden Meanings on the lid of Pacal Voltan’s Sarcophagus. 
(Overnight Palenque)

Olmec head in Mexico

Travel along the winding road up into the mountains to the beautiful waterfalls at Misol Ha. Here Miguel Angel will lead us in a purification ritual and our opening ceremonies to ask the Maya spirits for permission and protection for us while we travel through their sacred land.

Our work at this waterfall is to prepare us for receiving the wisdom and hidden meanings waiting for us throughout the sacred site of Palenque. This site is filled with some of the most beautiful architecture and artwork found anywhere in the Maya world.

We will walk through the site with Miguel Angel and Richard and see many of the buildings, including the Temple of the Inscriptions which houses the tomb of Lord Pacal Votan. 
(Overnight, Palenque)

 

Misol Ha waterfall in Mexico

An early start this morning with a breakfast stop at Selva Perdido (Lost Jungle) and then on to the site of Bonampak where we will participate in a Maya ceremony and view the original Maya wall paintings while learning about their symbolism from Miguel Angel.

Our journey now takes us across the Usumacinta River to Bethel in Guatemala. It is about a three hour drive from here to Flores where we will be spending the next three nights. We should reach the hotel in time for dinner and enjoy a free evening in the beautiful Guatemalan town of Flores. 
(Overnight in Flores)

Sacred site of Bonampak in Mexico

This will be a full day at the impressive Maya city of Tikal. Led by Miguel Angel and Richard we will participate in a ceremony/meditation to help us connect with the energy of this sacred Maya site.

Tikal, like many other Maya sites, was a center for astronomy and the keeping of sacred calendars that marked not time, but the evolution of consciousness. The stelae here offer fantastic insights into the cosmology of the Maya and the entry into the dark-rift (Galactic Mother) for the purpose of rebirth and the new coming-forth of the ages.
(Overnight hotel in Flores)

 

Tikal in Guatemala

Take a second look at the amazing site of Tikal. Today a local shaman joins us to guide us to a hidden sanctuary where we will do our meditation. This should be a very special event. Before leaving the site you will have some free time to find your personal connections with Tikal. 

Join us tonight to share your experiences and ask questions of our leaders. 
(Overnight hotel in Flores)

Sacred site of Tikal in Guatemala

After breakfast you will have the morning free to explore the town of Flores, do some shopping, or just relax at the hotel and meditate by the lake. Or, if you have the energy and the desire, you have the option to return to Tikal for a couple of hours to look at the site on your own. 

Our bus leaves in the early afternoon to take us back to Mexico. We will go to the boarder crossing at the Usumacinta River, cross to Frontera Corozal in Mexico where we will have dinner together and spend the night.
(Overnight Hotel Escudo Jaguar)

Flores Market in Guatemala

This morning we take a boat up the Usumacinta River to the isolated site of Yaxchilan. We will participate in a ceremony with Miguel Angel and tour the site, returning to the hotel for lunch. We then head back to our hotel in Palenque. 

Join Richard this evening for his lecture on The Mayan Calendar and Celestial Alignments. 
(Overnight Palenque)

Ceremony at Yaxchilán in Mexico

Follow our guide through the jungles of Palenque to the Forgotten Temple, hidden deep in the middle of the jungle. Here we will be led by Miguel Angel in a water purification ritual followed by our closing ceremony. This is where we emerge as Kukulkan, the feathered serpent.

This afternoon we travel to Villahermosa where we will have our farewell dinner and spend the night.
(Overnight Villahermosa)
