On the 18th December, 2012, we had a group of young people from Austalia and New Zealand, who came all the way here to participate in the many mayan ceremonies and celebrations which are taking place this week.
Yaax Kin, our truly inspired and inspirational Mayan shaman, celebrated with his usual intense emotion and sincere dedication, summoning the gods from the four cardinal points, from the sky, from the earth..... we all felt truly cleansed, and truly blessed and fortunate to be able to share this ancient ritual, and wisdom which has been handed down through the generations.
After the ceremony, the group shared a delicious meal, prepared in her inimical style and flare by Dona Celia, and then they all went to visit the cenotes, returning late to sleep in their traditional mayan hammocks.
We all hope that the mayan traditions will continue, and that in the not too distant future, genuine mayan shamen may be once again permitted to hold ceremonies in the arqaeological sites which were originally their sacred temples, and are now banned to them.

Last saturday, 8th January, we had the Sacred Fire Ceremony. It was a stunningly beautiful day, bright sunshine, but not too hot under the shade of the coconut palms. Shaman Yaax Kin carefully laid out his sacred objects according to the four directions, and made five little pyramids of 52 candles each of red, yellow, black, white and green for the four cardinal points and the centre of the earth. When the time came to light them, a tiny whirlwind came and blew the wind around three times and the flames and smoke followed the direction the shaman took around the sacred circle. During the ceremony, the only slight breezes came from ground level, but at the closing, the wind arose and started to spin the vanes of the windmill, high in the sky. We all felt strongly the presence of powerful and positive energy.

You can now see a glimpse of what your mayan ceremony could be like.
Mayan shaman Yaax Kin is asking the gods to bless the land and all who visit.
Why not have your own, tailormade, ceremony, to celebrate whatever is important to you.
You can see the videoon the videos page of this website.
