More than a destination
Our meeting point is the International Airport of Mexico City. We will have a brief but interesting guided tour around the main center of the ancestral city of Tenochtitlan, the city that was build on top of lagoon. We will see both the old and the new. From the center of the country we will be transported in a private, comfortable van to the most magical places: "los pueblos mágicos," or magical towns. These town have magic that manifests in multiple socio-cultural aspects: symbolic attributes, legends, history, transcendent events and in everyday life. We will take time to rest and connect with our retreat group through a shared meal near our lodging the first evening.
Mystical & Charming
The holy city of Teotihuacan ('the place where the gods were created') is situated some 50 km north-east of Mexico City. Built between the 1st and 7th centuries A.D., it is characterized by the vast size of its monuments – in particular, the Temple of Quetzalcoatl and the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, laid out on geometric and symbolic principles. As one of the most powerful cultural centers in Mesoamerica, Teotihuacan extended its cultural and artistic influence throughout the region and beyond. We will be rewarded with the most amazing view and the soft wind caressing our circle. We will celebrate the joy of being alive in the Aztec way with a Pulque ceremony, “the nectar of the Gods”. Very early the next morning we will have the chance for sightseeing in the “Ancient City of Teo”, as the locals call it, by air balloon. This is an extraordinary experience that you will never forget.
Air & Temazcal
We will ask permission from the guardians of this land to begin our journey, to develop deeper awareness of our own lineages, and to be open to receiving divine guidance. We will have a meaningful evening ceremony in a Temazcal, or 'steam house'; an ancient healing ritual that originates with indigenous Mesoamerican people (Aztecs, Mayans, Olmecs). With this ancient ceremony, we will cleanse our body, mind, and spirit. The fire is representative of the great Grandfather spirit, and the Temazcal itself represents the Mother Womb. We will have the chance to connect and get transmission from an Aztec Elder of Tradition, we will sit in ceremony in the ways of the Mexxhicas.
