Patziapa Ceremonial Center, Lake Atitlan
Patziapa Center in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala
Patziapa lies on the shores of Lake Atitlan on the skirt of the San Pedro volcano, across from the village of Santiago Atitlan. Away from roads or power lines, and only reachable by boat, Patziapa is an ideal place for rejuvenation and connecting to the elements, Spirit, the ancestors, and our own inner peace. The sacred maloca, or roundhouse, was created with sacred geometry and is an ideal space for teachings and gatherings. There are also remains of a pyramid on this sacred land, and many sacred ceremonies have happened here with elders from many nations across the world, including the ceremonies for the New Era on December 21, 2012. With its eastern-facing slope facing sacred Lake Atitlan and the volcanoes of Atitlan and Toliman, it makes a stunning ceremonial site for welcoming the sunrise.
The land at Patziapa is extremely fertile and has a year-round growing season, making it an ideal place for growing, researching, and teaching about traditional indigenous medicines and foods. It is our goal to preserve and reestablish healthy organic food and medicines, as well as provide natural medicinal products such as tinctures, essential oils, salves, incenses, and teas to local and international communities.
We offer ceremonial retreats at Patziapa several times a year. Patziapa is held by Earth Wisdom Keeper, Mayan Kamal B'ey (Spiritual Guide and Teacher) Tat Erick Gonzalez. See more events in this venue
In this intensive retreat we will be focusing on what do you want to crystallize for your life? Do you have a vision you are called to crystallize? Learn how to ceremonially and elementally holograph your spiritual vision into a physical form and create a strategic plan to manifest this into our world.
This is a special time for personal focus with each participant to create a ceremonial visioning plan. Each day there will be a ceremony to clarify and anchor the energies, with the culmination on the Mayan day of 13 Imux (the full empowerment of our creativity and thought forms) when we will offer a Mayan Fire Ceremony to help ground and ceremonially activate our visions.
Patziapa is a place of Soul rejuvenation and emergence, where you can renew your Spirit and Walk in the Beauty Way.
Elementally, spiritually, and ceremonially, Patziapa is a place to plant the seeds that we can carry anywhere in the world for the rest of our lives. It is a sanctuary along the shores of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, a sacred site that aids, supports and guides us through spiritual relationship, and how to crystallize our visions.
"As we learn to stand in the Rukux - our Essence, which is also in everything, we are able to crystallize the Light so that we can emanate sacred space. From here we will discover that the Rukux is not just our personal essence, but the essence of the
Collective Circle of Life" ~Tat Erick Gonzalez
