MAYA HARMONY Retreat

Descent of The Feathered Serpent

March 18 - 21, 2023
 
Join Laura for 4 days and 4 nights in Paradise
Puerto Morelos and Chichen Itza, Mexico! 

retreat begins with a welcome dinner at 7pm on the first day

Walk the path of the ancient Maya. The retreat will show you how to find harmony, come into alignment with ancient wisdom and find you own path in life. It is a deep dive into the sacred Tzolk'in, the sacred human calendar of the Maya where we find the plan for our lives written by the Heart Sky and the  Fathermother through channeled wisdom of the shamans. Come learn how YOU can find peace and balance by applying this harmonious wisdom to your own life and while you do, you get to walk in the sacred places including seeing the Feathered Serpent descend the pyramid at Chichen Itza on the SPRING Equinox! 

In addition, you'll get to soak in a cenote cave-pool where the Maya go to pray and have personal time with our shaman who is the only healer left in his village. This retreat is a rare gift!

Maya Harmony review
. . . we'll never forget!

This past February my friend and I stayed in Puerto Morelos. We went with Laura to visit some of the less touristy Mayan pyramids and swim in some cenotes. Every place we went was amazing. Meeting a Mayan family in their home was an honor we'll never forget. When we return to the Yucatan we will definitely go with Laura to explore even more fantastic sites. She not only was our guide but also became our friend.

Maya Harmony Review
 . . . magic out of the fabric of Mexico!

I became friends with Laura because she was such a good writer. She is also very approachable, and I feel deeply blessed to have seen her in person too. Laura is the most accomplished of my mystical friends. She forges magic out of the fabric of Mexico. She has shown me Mayan sites and cenotes. She helped me discover the Mayan people and I couldn't wait for her book about the sacred side of this people.

Maya Harmony review
. . . this is the real deal!

A wonderful, totally sublime experience. Max and Laura’s depth of knowledge about the Mayan people, their innate indigenous worldview and simple lifestyle was shared to our small group in an elegant style. We visited in the village and were able to have individual healings with the village shaman. We swam in cenotes, climbed pyramids at Ek Balam and it was mesmerizing. This is the real deal.

Maya Harmony review
. . . a surreal experience!

Laura and Max were an absolute pleasure to take an excursion with! Having met Laura before I already knew she was great energy and good people! Laura and Max both took us to some amazing cenotes that offered a very private and surreal experience unlike anything I’ve ever experienced on any excursion before. They both shared with us the history of the Mayan culture and offered a very personal experience unlike any I’ve seen on other excursions in Mexico! I would highly recommend and will be booking with them in the future!
