MAYAN FIRE CEREMONY- GRATITUDE

In traditional Mayan day-count fire ceremonies, beautiful offerings are created and consumed, invoking awareness and interconnectivity with source consciousness. Resting in the stillness of the fire’s light invites us to journey into the depth of our hearts. Gathering together in appreciation, we honor all living things. The crackling radiance of the ceremonial fire brings us face to face with the wisdom of our ancient instincts to gather in ritual celebration. Within the silent surrender to the blazing glow, we drop into the depth of our spirit’s own true nature.

The Maya remind us to dwell in the innocent heart of the child, prompting us to leave behind our busy minds and conditioned concept of self. Attentively energizing sacred practice, we unplug from the daily grind, lightening our load of heavy stories and soothing the scars of life’s simple twists of fate. Honoring our beings as one with all, we align with the cycles and flow of nature, cultivating compassion and awareness for our part in the grand play. Intentionally pulsing the inner exploration of our own evolutionary consciousness, we fuel the light of our sacred purpose.

*You will have an opportunity to meet 1-on-1 with the shaman after for personalized reading based on your birth date. 

CACAO CEREMONY

In the spirit of the ancient traditions, join us in a sacred circle of ceremony and celebration centered around the sharing of a cacao elixir. Pure cacao is an authentic plant medicine used to uplift the spirit, deepen focused meditation and strengthen our reconnection with heart centered awareness. Known as the "food of the Gods," cacao has an expansive, mood-enhancing quality that helps us gently shift blockages while realigning us with the path of the heart.

This trip exceeded my already high expectations. The itinerary was planned and crafted with such care to allow for an immersive experience filled with yoga, healing treatments, once-in-a-lifetime ceremonies, interactions with locals, delicious meals, and adventures to remember. This trip attracts people ready to relax, grow, and recharge. It is a must-do. Suzanne is an incomparable leader, and Guatemala is an unparalleled country to visit.
By Julie I for Yoga Adventures in Guatamala 2021 on 19 May, 2021
This was a trip of a lifetime! Suzanne is an amazing leader - an experienced traveler and well-connected with locals to provide unique experiences (we hiked, kayaked, toured, and more!) and beautiful accommodations. She communicates really well so you feel safe and ready to travel and is really talented at creating community amongst the group. I love her yoga teaching style... you take that to a place like Lake Atitlan and it is magic. Life changing, soul changing! I truly enjoyed every aspect of this adventure - Suzanne, the other attendees, the staff at Villa Sumaya, those Suzanne invited to join who shared their talents (photography, trip advising, and more), an itinerary that allowed for personal space and freedom to explore, the excursions offered (in which Suzanne joined and had already vetted the experience!), and the spiritual journey facilitated. Not one complaint... I can't wait to plan the next trip with Flow Yoga Adventures!

I am so glad I took this trip, such a great way to decompress, connect with others and spend time with yourself. Each day of the trip was planned well and there was plenty of variety and options. The yoga classes were phenomenal with the view and level of difficulty as the week went on. The view and location of the retreat was fabulous. Food, amenities and services were amazing. I would take the opportunity to go on a retreat with Flow Yoga Adventures, you will be happy you did!

Individual paces encouraged. Individual personalities flourished. Personal limitations discovered and then bent. Space, rest, nature, good health, healthy spirit, exploratory minds and solid relationship connections. Exactly what a retreat should be.

Love this Tiffany! Thank you for taking the time to share your beautifully articulated thoughts and what you enjoyed.
