Return to the Sacred Path of the Sun
In December of 2008, a group of seekers from Canada, the USA and as far away as England joined my travel company Sacred Earth Journeys on a journey titled "Maya Sacred Path to 2012: Return to the Sacred Path of the Sun." The journey was led by a teacher of the Maya wisdom, Miguel Angel Vergara, and spiritual teacher Richard Jelusich.
The focus of this journey was on the role of the sun, our sacred central star in the solar system of planets, and the cosmology of the Maya understanding of the sun in the evolution of consciousness. In ancient times, the Maya Lord Ah-Kin-Pech traveled this same path and connected with the soul of the sun while he planted the seeds of wisdom he received from the essence of the Sun. Our group followed in his footsteps, back to the source of the Sun, and participated in sacred Mayan ceremonies and rituals where we harvested the sacred wisdom from these seeds, planted by Lord Ah-Kin-Pech, to understand the value this wisdom contains.
Our journey took us through the scenic and diverse regions of Yucatan, Campeche and Quintana Roo, where we visited unique ancient Maya sites along the way, such as Labna, Chicanná, Becán, Kalakmul, Xpuhil and Edzná.
A special thanks goes out to the following tour members for contributing to this set of photos: Richard Jelusich, Helen Wong, Sal Nocitra, Christine Marsh, Lauren Pena and Linda Strom-Medvitz.
