Soul Expansion * Mexico Adventure * 5. – 19. January 2025


* From 5. – 19. January 2025 * A 15-day-journey into the sacred land of the Maya, Yucatan, Mexico *

* Soul Expansion – Mexico Adventure – Yucatan January 2025 *

Our soul, like a seed, bears in itself all the information that wants to unfold in our lifetimes.
With it, we have brought the divine potential with us to be creators of our reality and to manifest our true essence here on Earth. Our heart is the vibratory field that expresses our soul’s energy, and when we resonate positvely with our surrounding, this field opens up and expands. Following our call to a particular place on this planet, gives us the opportunity to remember, reconnect and integrate what we have forgotten from many lifetimes ago. Through a deep connection to nature and yourself, I invite you on this journey to experience your soul’s expansion, remembering your abilities and purpose and unfold your spirit’s full potential!

In ceremonies at sacred pyramid sites and ancient powerplaces, we connect with the high frequency energy of the Mayans as Starpeople and thus create a bridge to the cosmos, the spiritual world and our multidimensionality. In magical surroundings such as the deep blue cenotes and dark caves, we come into close contact with our innermost aswell as inner earth and open ourselves to the wisdom of our ancestors and mother Gaia. The beauty of the Yucatan, with its bright colors – the lush green jungle, the turquoise ocean, the colourfull, delicious fruit and the tropical climate – is also reflected in the vivacious and open-minded mentality of the Mexicans. People and nature create a heart opening that helps us to regain our ease and experience deep grounding and connection in nature. Like the Tree of Life, we will strengthen our roots, centre and branches, to expand all aspects of our being !

As part of the group, our heart and soul family, we have the opportunity of growing in reciprocity with each other and through potentiating our shared energies, experience magical moments, deep connections, amazing transformations and wonderful adventures together

Program of the Journey (subject to change)

1. Arrival – From Merida to Izamal
We pick you up at Merida Airport and bring you to the Magical City of Izamal (about 1 hour drive), where we will stay most of the journey. At the hotel we get to know each other over dinner and spend our first night in the tropical paradise Yucatan.



2. Welcome Cacao ceremony and exploration of Izamal
We begin the journey with a welcome ceremony, where we connect with the earth of Yucatan and its magical powers, and for our root chakra to receive grounding so that our deepest patterns can come into healing. In the ceremony we are cleansed and with the magic of the Goddess Cacao open our heart chakra for the transformation that awaits us on this journey.
In the afternoon we have time to explore the „Magical City“ Izamal, which was founded by the healer-priest Itzamna and still has many well-preserved pyramid sites. This is why Izamal is also called the „Magical City“, because the heart and healing vibrations are particularly high here, which can be seen especially in the happy and heart-touching people of Izamal.

3. Receiving knowledge of Astrology & the Mayan Calender – Pyramids Ake
Our path will lead us to a village called Nolo today, where there is a sanctuary with sacred knowledge of astrology and the Mayan calendar that our brother Martin will  explain to us. This information has been handed down to him by his father, who had lots of visions and built a small replica of the Pyramid of Kukulkan and a Wallpainting of ancient descriptions that will give us an amazing insight into the Mayan Cosomolgy and Spirituality. We will be able to sit on a magical stone chair to align our chakras and receive the blessings of this place.
Afterwards we will visit the Ruins of the Temples Ake´, where we will do a meditation and connect with the wisdom that is stored in the stones and open our third eye for visions.
Later on we go to an old Hacienda, where the will find out about how the Sisal Agave plant was worked in the old days and why the plant and fibre were called the Mayan Gold. With all of this knowledge you received today you will know a lot about the Mayan History and feel even deeper connected to the indiginous land and its people.

4. Archeological Site Chichen Itza
Chichen Itza is perhaps the most famous of all Mayan sites. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988, and its temples embody the power of the sacred masculin. Between the 8th and 13th centuries, this was the central city of the Itza, the then most influential Mayan group in Yucatan. In addition to visiting the most important buildings here, we have the opportunity to meditate on the energy of the famous pyramid of Kukulkan and to buy handicrafts and stones from the numerous artesanos in the region. On the way back, we take a delicious meal in Yokdzonot’s restaurant, run by a women’s cooperative, and those in need of a dip may like to jump into the beautiful open cenote waters next to the restaurant!


5. Learning Traditional Mayan Abdominal Massage & Medicinal Plants.
Today we meet midwife and healer Dona Rafaela, who will introduce us to the wisdom of her art of midwifery and massage, which she has been practicing for the past 40 years. Rafaela is an absolute treasure and is highly respected in her profession. Her warm, relaxed and loving manner will make it easy for us to learn from her. The massage that she will show us will bring all the organs located in the lower abdomen, such as the intestines back into the correct position, thus helping the entire body system to unify and regress various pathologies. In addition, she will show us medicinal herbs from her garden, which can be used for various ailments.

6. Temazcal, the Sweat Lodge Ceremony
We will visit Israels ceremonial site today, the Sanctuary of Ixchel. He invites us into his  sweat lodge, the Temazcal. In a traditional Mayan ceremony we connect with our ancestors, the hot stones and the goddess Ixchel, who gifts us lifeforce energy and fertility for our new projects.
The Temzcal is also a space where everything negative can be cleansed and transformed, because in the darkness and heat of the Temazcal we have the opportunity to let go of old limitations, fears and diseases, to integrate the powerful energies of our ancestors and to return to life reborn.
We will sing together, connect with our bodies with a delicious honey/cacao-peeling and enjoy our time in the womb of the great mother, how the Temazcal is also liked to be called.

 
 

7. Free day to integrate and relax
This day is free to relax and integrate what you have experienced so far, to visit the pyramids of Izamal and meditate there, receive a healing session or relax by the pool of the hotel! If you would like to receive a healing session, massage or cleansing with the egg, today is the right time for it. Experiences shows that it makes sense at this point in your process to be supported by energetic work.

8. Merida – Colonial City and traditional MarketWe spend the day in Merida, the capital of Yucatan, with its metropolitan flair and splendid colonial buildings. We stroll through the local market and I’ll show you where to get the best ceremonial dresses. We enjoy the colorful diversity of the city and end the evening with a delicious meal in one of Merida’s traditional restaurants.

9. Visit the Ruta Puuc
Today we visit various ruins of the „Ruta Puuc“, which was named after the hilly and very fertile landscape. These rather small pyramid sites are real gems, as they are rarely visited by tourists and are extremely interesting and well-preserved, with beautiful nature and fantastic trees that are still very much present here as ancient guardians of these sacred sites. We will connect with the fertility of the area and the different fertility symbols at the pyramid sites and ask for blessings for our own abundance and vitality.

10. Hidden pyramids in the jungle
Today, our guide Pablo will take us to two hidden pyramid sites in the jungle where no tourists usually go. The sites don’t even have a name, but they harbour many wonderful treasures that we can explore completely freely. Pablo will tell us about the Maya and their life in this natural and remote environment and show us ancient ceramics. We will hold a ceremony in an energetically special place and then stop for a meal with the family of the farmer whose land the pyramids border, giving us an insight into how the traditional Maya still live today.

 

11. Uxmal – Archeological Site
Today we embark on the energy of the sacred feminine and travel to the archeological site of Uxmal, which was a centre of initiation for Mayan priestesses. Here they studied the secrets of divine conception and tantric union. This place gives us the opportunity to connect with our divine femininity and get in contact with the wisdom of the „Sage“ within us. The stones of the pyramids are sacred „libraries“ that store old knowledge and pass it on to us when we meditate and connect with them.

Uxmal Pyramide Yucatan

12. Free Day and Healing Sessions
Today we have a free day where we can simply relax, or receive a healing session from Rafaela or other healers. Often it is useful to be supported in your process through energetic work, and if you would like to receive a healing session, massage or fertility treatment, today is the time to do so.


13. El Corchito, Salt Salines & Temple Xcambo
Our adventures will bring us to the beautiful nature reserve El Corchito today, where we can go on a boat or on Kayaks to enjoy the mangroves and rich biosphere and wildlife of this wonderful ecological reserve. There are several open cenotes to swim in and refresh before we go on our next exploration …
We will stop at the salt salines in the area, where we will receive the sacred mayan salt in ceremony and connect through this with the beauty and care for our body, which is the temple of our health and vitality.
Close to the salines are the pyramids of Xcambo, one of the only temples in this region that are so closely locacted by the sea. Here we will bless our salt and take in the wind and beauty of the place before we make our way home to Izamal.

 

14. Completion Ceremony – in the Cenote, deep in Mother Earth’s Belly
For our final ceremony we go into the depths of the underworld today, into a cenote, which is a very sacred place for the Maya – the entrance to the underworld, Xibalba, and the connection to the ancestors.
Here we will hold a beautiful final ceremony that supports our sacral chakra and our roots in the earth and reconnects us with our ancestors and their power so that we can return home well strengthened and connected.


 

15. Departure from Paradise
Today its time to say goodbye to the wonderful paradise of Mexico. After a final breakfast together we make our way to the airport, carrying in our hearts all the wonderful impressions, the bond with our heart family and the invigorating energies that we have experienced on this journey, home!

Comments from recent participants:

* Sarah Gress is a healer, leader, advocate, friend, and so much more. She has a sacred talent of knowing what the soul needs and truly sees people. She creates journeys like the one I attended, that are full to the brim of meaning. Not a vacation, no gimmicks, a JOURNEY. A journey into your self, into others and closer to mother earth. I’ve never been out of country till the journey I attended with Sarah, and I couldn’t have felt more safe and cared for. She also has a talent for finding the most magnificent humans and placing them in front of those who need them most. If you want to heal, expand, learn or grow… You are in the right place with Sarah.

* This year I took part in a spiritual journey in Mexico, which was about traditional midwifery and shamanism. These 2 weeks have changed a lot in my life. Not only did I learn a lot about the midwifery work of the Mayans, but also a lot about myself. My father is very sick right now and the world is upside down because of the Corona Pandemic. Thanks to the time in Mexico with Sarah and the other great women, I can be strong for my family and still take care of myself. I have gained a lot of new life energy and learned to really love myself as a woman. By chance I took part in the trip and could not imagine anything at all. Also financially it was not easy for me to pay the costs. I can’t believe my luck, what experiences I was allowed to gain and you can’t pay that with any money in the world. Thank you, Sarah!

* Sarah guides her groups on a pilgrimage to the heart. The way she organizes her journeys has the participants feeling held and safe, yet open the the magic that offers itself in each step of the way. She offers the perfect alchemy of physical and spiritual knowledge, leaving all the participants, from the doctors to the seekers, feeling satiated and alive. All the participants in my group, including myself, experienced significant positive transformation on our journey, and Sarah created the ripe environment for this to take place. I am deeply grateful for the way this trip changed my life, and all the gifts Sarah has given me to help me become a better and brighter person. If you seek healing, wisdom and growth, within a well held and loving container, this trip is for you.
