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.

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.

Reviews

Such an awesome experience. It was a wonderful venue. I enjoyed every bit of it and can’t wait to do another retreat!
We had a good time. More warning on the daily temperature drop would have been nice. I should have packed warmer clothing. The staff and food at. Joyful Journey were helpful and patient, especially since I kept changing my spa appointments. The massage I received was awesome. Best parts were morning yoga, watching the moon rising, meeting other retreat attendees, of which one was a close neighbor I had not met before. Suzanne and Jeremy were engaged throughout the entire retreat. Great job!
