We’ll be exploring newly opened and recently uncovered ruins in this mysterious and rarely visited part of the Yucatan. It’s not unusual to spot howler and spider monkeys here or large cats – like jaguars! Visitors to this area of the jungle are far and few and we’ll have the opportunity to explore places that are lost in time as this area is still pristine.
You will experience the quietude of this area and have the opportunity to merge with the jungle and the sweet energy here. We can walk out of our rooms and go directly in the lake for a swim, have a healing massage, or treat ourselves to the deluxe spa treatments. Weather permitting, we may spend one night on the grounds of the ruins atop the pyramid for a very powerful all night meditation ceremony. Exploring the undiscovered places in the jungle of our own minds allows us to live our truth and make our life choices with clarity and grace.
Journeying inward using ceremony and ritual, we’ll illuminate the world we’ve created from the beliefs in our own minds. Engaging the Toltec-Mayan practices of Dreaming and Mastery of Awareness training, we’ll learn to recover our personal power and how to set boundaries in life with kindness and love.
Day 1: We leave the US today and meet in Chetumal, Mexico. From there we begin our journey to our beautiful hotel on Lake Bacalar. Arrive at the lovely Akal•Ki Holistic Spa for dinner and a restful night amongst the sounds of the lake lapping up against the shore by our comfortable cabanas. Includes: (D).
Day 2: We spend the day at Kohunich with its enormous stucco masks representing the different ages of the sun. It is located in a lovely area of the forest. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 3: This morning we visit Dzibache & Kinichna; the Pyramid of the Sun. This was a major site containing many glyphs and beautiful temples. The Pyramid allows us views of the surrounding site and jungle. In the afternoon we stop at a wonderful cenote for a surreal swim and ceremony. Free time for massages during the late afternoon. This night we will experience an all night Mitote dreaming ceremony (if weather permits). Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 4: After breakfast we are off to Chicanna. This site is famous for Temple 2 which represents the Mayan Earth Monster. The doorway is the mouth through which the high priests entered the underworld out of which they emerged transfigured. Then we make our way to visit Becan. Becan is considered the capital of the Rio Bec region and surrounded by a large moat and crossed by seven bridges. The energy here is so peaceful and sacred it feels like being in a beautiful temple. We stay for the next two nights at Chicanna Ecolodge. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 5: Today we explore one of the most immense Mayan cities in this part of Mexico, Calakmul. This site is huge rivaling Tikal, and the Pyramids and stellae are stunning. Climbing to the top of the largest pyramid is an incredible experience as it is approximately 150 feet high and towers over the forest canopy. The ruins are located in the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve one of the last of the Yucatan rainforest. The wildlife here is amazing, spotting howler monkeys and large cats are not unusual. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 6: Today we have a second chance to explore Calakmul. We will have private time to spend dreaming with the forest and a beautiful forest ceremony to celebrate the energy here. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 7: This morning we make our way to back to Akal•Ki Holistic Spa for a restful day by the lake and spa services. Along the way we visit the beautiful ruins of Xpujil. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 8: Today we leave the jungle and make our way back to the airport and get ready for our flights home. We say our last goodbyes, hugs and kisses as we prepare to take our new dream of heaven back to our lives. Includes: (B).
