Mexico Desert Retreat and Teotihuacan

This listing has one of the 10 most popular offers available in Mexico

The Toltec traditions come from Central America. They are stellar traditions as they are reflected in this central part of what is called Turtle Island (the American Continent). The essential principle of the traditions is that everything is interconnected. The powers of healing and of creativity come from source energies around us and inside of us with which we can be in constant communication.

There is a focus of life like dream, the dream of the night and the dream of the day, and there is a term called the 'dreaming body'. The dreaming body is the means through which we open up to all other bodies and energies in the universe. By learning how to communicate with elemental, animal, mineral, plant, earth planetary and stellar forces, we have the possibility to use these powers in our everyday lives through decision making, creative expression, our own healing, and the healing of others.

On this course, very practical techniques and ceremonies are given which are designed to help develop your intuitive inner wisdom so that you can move, heal, express and decide with clarity. We are looking for a place of no doubt. The instinctive intuitive senses are something to learn and develop. There is a place in all of us without question, and from this place, there is knowledge - practical, useful, powerful, meaningful.

We focus on individual histories, assisting each individual to find new solutions to old problems, helping the growth of their creative fire and developing their power to heal both themselves and others. You will leave this course with very clear, powerful tools.

This event is called an initiation because even for those who are already on a clear path, what you will receive will be new, and will initiate a different relationship with yourself and the world in which you live. Many of the practises you can take with you into your homes, your work and your relations and your healing.

All the teachers on this retreat live and work in the Toltec traditions of Central America, but also we make bridges with other living dreaming traditions in particular the Australian Aboriginals and Tibetan Buddhism.

The Twelve Keys.

These 12 keys are practical methods to open the dreaming body. The 12 techniques derive from the meanings of the 12 numbers, the 12 sounds in the musical chromatic scale, the 12 colours of the colour wheel, and the 12 positions in the medicine wheel. When all of the 12 directions are mastered, the doorways to the Sacred Geometry in the number 12 are opened revealing the essential principle of harmonic vibration in the universal song. This harmonic vibration enables us to make clear balanced decisions, to heal ourselves, to heal others, and to liberate our creative fire.

The first two nights, that is the night before the retreat starts (Oct 8) and also the first night of the retreat (Oct 9), you will be in a hotel in Mexico City. This is included in the cost. The rest of the retreat is in the centre of the conscious dream which is in the desert of San Luis Potosi and this last part is featured. The two accommodation options offered are at the centre in the desert.

Adobe individual dome

This is your own dreaming dome, carefully constructed so that you can meditate and dream consciously as well as feel full contact with the Earth. The idea of the dome is for you to be surrounded by earth, and also for it to be very dark if required. There is also plenty of light in the day with both a door and a window in the space. It is a bit like sleeping in a temazcal, the 'womb of the earth'.

Shared adobe roundhouse

You would be sharing with one or two persons. These structures are also made of adobe and are larger.

  • Food is prepared and you also have access to a shared kitchen which you can use for breakfast and other meals. Centre of the Conscious Dream caters to most diets.
  • The toilets are dry ecological toilets.
  • There are two bathing spaces and always water to bathe with and also drinking water.
  • Infinite space to wander in any direction!

Program

Gradually Opening the Eyes

Day 1, October 8

As a way of arriving in Mexico, the first opening of the eyes is to the Toltec culture of this land. Teotihuacan is the Toltec (pre-Aztec) ceremonial city about 30 miles from Mexico City.

It is the most important pyramid site in Mexico linked to Giza in Egypt and covers over two square miles. The dreaming of the ancient Toltecs was to understand the connection between the Earth and the other planets in our solar system, and the sun, our star. Through this knowledge, they found the connection of the Earth with the whole universe. At Teotihuacan, we can touch again this dream of unity.

Day 2, October 9: Travel to the Centre of the Conscious Dream

The Twelve Keys. Many of the practises described are ongoing throughout the retreat.

Day 3, October 10

One. North. White. Element of Air. Meditation. Clearing space in the mind. Breath without thought. Space to see clearly.

Meditation. Breath awareness is the foundation of understanding the truth of our present moment. It is the means through which we can make space in the mind so that we are then able to make informed decisions. This meditation practice is daily and will enable us to see our reactions before we react, giving us the time and power to choose our response to any given moment.

Day 4, October 11

Two. North Northeast. Silver. The butterfly. Subtle movement. Moving without control or design. Making space in the body, opening the intuitive faculties.

Movement. Shamanic yoga. The listening moving body.

  • The body heals itself by finding its natural movement at the moment.
  • The body finds its true expression in the revealed secrets of each second.
  • The body knows how and when to move.
  • Our work is to listen to the language of the body in movement.

The human does not live in isolation. Shamanism teaches that the human body is connected not only to other human beings. The human body is connected to the elements, trees, plants, rocks, animals, the whole planet Earth, the sun, the moon, the star. When the human body finds its moving connection with where it lives and breathes, it ends its isolation and finds its freedom. Yoga is a series of movements and stretches that connect the human body with the universe.

In this yoga, the moving human body finds its own language, its own response to each moment, its own ‘truth'. The wisdom of our perfection comes from within our own bodies. Our work is to listen to our own wisdom. The body listens. We create a space in which the body listens to each moment and finds its authentic response from the truth in the body. This is an ongoing practice throughout the retreat.

Trees. In coordination with the conscious breath, working with trees is a more profound means through which we can find clarity. We open the doors of perception so that we see through the surface of the tree to the energy which sustains it. We learn how we can receive information from another energy body through our intent. Trees hold the deep wisdom of the breath.

Day 5, October 12

Three. North East East. Gold. Quartz Crystal. Ceremony of the first form, the first intent. Connecting with the original creative fire, the first breath into your soul. Touching the original purpose behind the journey of your soul to this planet and the body in which you are presently living.

Rocks. 'Stone people' hold memory. We learn how to read the memory held in stones. This will help us to read the memory held in our bones. We identify the memories held, repeated emotional and mental habits, like time traps. We then learn to release the memory from the body.

Day 6, October 13

Four. East. Yellow. Element of Fire. Fire ceremony. Opening to the solar mysteries, the light and heat force for planet earth and all its creatures. Activating natural creative potential.

The Medicine Wheel. Balance of mind, body, spirit, and emotion. The Medicine Wheel is a map that teaches balance and healing. Each participant establishes their orientation to the four directions and the four elements as a strong and secure base for their ongoing dreaming and healing. A technique is given that teaches the individual their strong and weak elements and how to balance them.

The sacred fire. Tatiwari. What is a sacred fire ceremony? What does the word ‘sacred’ mean in practice? What is the difference between a Fire Ceremony and a bonfire? We share the Toltec traditions of the Fire Ceremony, their meaning, their power. We explain the careful preparation of the sacred fire, its meaning and symbolism, and all the steps in the timing and intent.

Day 7, October 14

Five. South East East. Orange. The double spiral walk. Opening to your multi-dimensionality enables multiple tasking, the ability to make clear decisions under pressure, and the instinctive creative flow.

Animal guides teach us how to be in a body. They guide us into different parts of the human body, showing what is unnatural or out of balance. They give us instinctive and intuitive information which can lead to deep release and healing. They are also guides in the movement between dimensions (dreams), enabling us to master multi-dimensionality.

Day 8, October 15

Six. South-South East. Red. Blood. Mammals. Connecting with your tribe. Understanding natural affiliations. Authentic alignments in personal relationships, working relationships and team building.

Human Teachers of the Dream are the most advanced guides of our own condition. We connect with energies that would be useful to you – priestess, priest, shaman, Buddha, Jesus, Isis, Shiva, Shakti etc. Sometimes these guides have no name they are just felt. Human spirit guides can also be people that we know who have died or even people we know who are still alive. We develop and maintain this connection with our human spirit teachers.

Day 9 - 10: October 16 - 17

Seven. South. Brown. Element of Earth. Soil. Rocks. Finding balance in the body. Learning to centre within extremes of mood temperatures. Staying grounded within chaos. Dealing calmly with pressure situations.

The Temazcal is, without doubt, one of the most ancient mystical ceremonies in the Toltec traditions. It is known as ‘the mother of all the medicines’ because it takes us to the origins of life that came out of the harmonic union of our four great ancestors - air, fire, earth, and water. The Temazcal is like an interdimensional vehicle and it takes us to different levels of the conscious and unconscious dreams so that we can achieve the healing of our memory.

We introduce the symbolic magic of the Temazcal through the practice of the union of mind, body, spirit, and emotion. The course will teach the seeding of the Temazcal, The construction of the dome in which it takes place, the ceremony of the lighting of the sacred fire with the rocks, and entering into the womb of the Earth. We explain all the fundamental symbols and their physiological, mental and emotional meanings.

Day 11, October 18

Eight. South-Southwest. Violet. Flowers. The art of acceptance. Finding peace in mind and body with what is. Movement into stillness. The beauty in pure awareness.

Dream. We look at the word ‘dream’. We look at the way of ‘life as a dream’, and therefore the relation between the dream of the night and the dream of the day. We look at the idea of waking up in the dream of our lives so that we become the co-creators of our own dream, the writer of our own book of life.

We learn different ways in which we can perceive, understand and respond to dreaming information. We look at death as the transformation between one dream state and another dream state. We also look at the term ‘dreaming body’ and look at its meaning and function in our work here.

Cacao ceremony. This sound ceremony opens the heart to the beauty of pure awareness. Using the sacred plant medicine of Cacao, the sound can allow the heart to expand and explore the relationship with the cosmic web.

Days 12, October 19

Nine. South West West. Indigo. Insects and birds. Dance. Meeting your spirit world in your body. Dancing with them. Understanding who and what you have been carrying. Identifying helpful and unhelpful influences. Releasing, clearing.

Limpia. We will be learning the theory and practice of the limpia (energy cleansing), and learning about the curative plants and stones of the traditional Mexica.

The Obsidian Mirror. This Toltec practice will allow you to see the spirit world in your body.

Day 13 - 14, October 20 - 21

Ten. West. Blue. Element of Water. Opening to death as a transformation from one form into another. Necessary deaths are now in your body, your home, and your work. Making space for the new.

Burial Ceremony. This ancient shamanic ritual is a ceremonial death. The personal history is released, and so the sense of ‘self’ can expand to include the human connection with the earth, the planets, the stars, and the universe. There is the space to release long-held memories that cause physical and psychological imbalance. The planet earth is your healer.
