Maya Temples of Transformation with Freddy Silva and Miguel Angel Vergara.
Presented by Sacred Earth Journeys
Travel with best-selling author and ancient temples researcher Freddy Silva & Maya master teacher Miguel Angel Vergara to the Maya sacred temples of Mexico and Guatemala.
Experience the timeless Maya knowledge of sacred geometry, number, cosmic correspondence, and ritual encoded in the temples and pyramids of Palenque, Yaxchilan, and Tikal on a journey that elevates the seeker to discover their inner temple: the place of the soul. Tour leaders Freddy Silva and Miguel Angel Vergara will take you through sacred ceremony at the Misol Ha waterfalls, guide you up the Usumacinta river, through pristine jungle, and to some of the most transformative sites in Mexico & Guatemala, including Palenque and Tikal.
Deep in the heart of the verdant hills and jungles of Guatemala lies a cradle of civilization, a birthplace of gods. Here, in remote times, a group of magician-shamen called Itzam first emerged, seemingly out of nowhere.
With the sound of their voices they are said to have erected extraordinary temple cities overnight. They also possessed intimate knowledge of the laws of nature and the cosmos, which they used to raise humans from their basic existence so they too could become gods. They created a land so beautiful that all who lived there would fall in love with its splendour; they seeded it with the most beautiful flowers to adorn the roads, and created the rivers, the caves filled with mystery, and the waterfalls and cenotes whose crystal clear waters reflected the light of the sun.
In time, this “land of the chosen ones” called Mayab would usher another enlightened people who today still bear its name. The spiritual craft of the Maya is a testament to how timeless wisdom and regular interaction with temples can maintain a person – even entire societies – in balance indefinitely.
It is on this promising note that we welcome you to an adventure to the temples of Mexico and Guatemala.
Some say that long journeys come with the best rewards. If this is so, then this is such a journey.
The focal points of our adventure are the exquisite temple-cities of Palenque and Tikal. Both are remote and require a tad more effort to reach, yet the pilgrim is rewarded with a feast for the eyes and the soul. Tikal is a complete temple-city and features one of the highest pyramids in Central America, while Palenque contains some of the finest art and architecture of the region; the impressive panels of the Temple of the Inscriptions, together with the elaborately carved tomb lid of Pakal as the intermediary between earth and the Otherworld, is enough to lubricate the wheels of imagination and provoke the will to embark on a spiritual quest.
