Uniting the Sacred Feminine and Masculine Forces:

Find “The Force” through the Ancient Wisdom of the Maya



It is time to draw the line between the past and the present. It is time to release all past pain and suffering, mistakes and sorrows and step into the New Year with the confidence, peace and joy of knowing exactly who you truly are. Join us in ancient sites, sacred ceremonies, meditations, and set your intent to be your authentic self in 2018 with you Sacred Masculine and Feminine in balance. There is a reason you are being called to the Ancient Maya Wisdom at this time. It could be the Maya Prophecy of the Sixth Sun.

Living the Maya Prophecy of the Sixth Sun: “The Return of the Wise Men & Women.

On December 21, 2012, the Fifth Sun set for the last time, closing a great cycle of the Maya Calendar. With the ending of this cycle the Sixth Sun was born, bringing with it an exciting new prophecy: “The Return of the Wise Men and Women”. It was said they would come at a time of crisis, when they were most needed. These wise men and women are you and me, all the men and women who are awakening to their true, authentic selves, and the time of crisis is NOW.

We no longer need to look solely to our political and religious leaders for guidance. We need to look inward to our authentic selves, to the wise men and women we are becoming. This transformational journey into the Ancient Maya world will allow you to connect with your inner force and usher in the New Year with added strength and confidence.

The teachings are experiential and take place in the sacred Maya sites which hold the same energy as in ancient times. Miguel Angel Vergara’s vast knowledge of Maya spirituality, along with his deep connection to the Maya Masters of Light, bring the ancient teachings into the present moment to address the needs of today. His heart centered teachings, meditations, and ceremonies will touch your soul and release your spirit.

“The Maya Masters of Light tell us that every day at the moment of the sunrise a new sun is born and this sun gives us light, color, warmth and life’s abundance. The Maya called this sun “LAK’IN”, which in the Maya language means “Towards a New Sun”. In this Maya ceremony we will give thanks to Father Sun, “K’in” and Mother Earth, “Ix’Cheel” for all the gifts they bring to us every day and as we do this we will fill ourselves with all the wonderful energies of Light and Life.”

Next, we travel the short distance to the site to arrive in the early morning when it is just opening. Miguel Angel will walk you through the main part of the site explaining the spiritual significance of the temples, pyramids, and glyphs.

“Uxmal is called “the City of Kindness of Mother Moon” and is known as “The Maya Cosmic Feminine University”. This marvelous city was built for the purpose of teaching the sacred aspects of the Feminine. Their Goddesses, Ix’Cheel and Ix’Mukane, represent our Mother Earth and Grandmother, Heart of the Earth. In ancient times when girls were very young they received teachings to comprehend the relationship between women and the elements of life; the earth, water, air, fire and ether. After receiving these teachings they could then could then share them with the others. In this way the Sacred Feminine was made available to all.

In this Cosmic University, the women received the different teachings to be in perfect synchronization with the elements and full forces of Mother Nature. There were at Uxmal the orders of the Priestesses of the Earth, the Water, the Air, and the Fire. The great teachers represented by the images of Ix’Cheel and Ix’Mukane were full of knowledge and led them to the lessons and practices which they did in very special rooms. They had teachings from those with special knowledge of how to make drawings in the Sacred Books and on their pottery. They had both men and women teachers who taught to them in lectures but at the same time, they guided the students through meditations to translate the experience in Consciousness because it is important that what we learn intellectually becomes consciousness.

Here at Uxmal were the Priestesses who developed the Mysteries of the Life and translated the Spiritual meaning as a Human Being.”

“Ake, the City of the Children who came from Turtle Island, Atlantis-Tulan. Itzamna, the great teacher of the Maya Wisdom, taught the Maya about the Sun and the Cosmic Wisdom and how human beings could affect Mother Earth both positively and negatively through their thoughts and actions. Itzamna taught them how the Father Sun and the Mother Moon working in perfect balance and harmony give us the fruits of Life. Each tree, fruit, and seed has the principles of Life, the Elementals that they call “Aluxes” who are the vital principles in every natural element on Earth; Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.

Itzamna also taught them about the wisdom of the stars and the cosmos through the Sacred Calendars, such as the T’zolkin of 260 days and the Haab of 365 days. He taught them how to use the Mathematics and Sacred Geometry to build their Temples, Pyramids, and Observatories. And throughout this process reminding them of the Sacred Wisdom that was brought from Turtle Island of Atlantis-Tulan.
