October 9-16 2021, Teotihuacán Mexico
If you are ready to dissolve your fears, false beliefs, and identification with your mind, and experience unconditional love from which you can create a new life that you love, then join us at the ancient pyramids of Teotihuacán Mexico.
Walking in silence in the chilly morning air to the archaeological grounds on the cobbled stone street. You are invited to close your eyes and let a partner guide you, so you can explore sensations of trust, fear, and surrender, before we even reach the first plaza.
In dreaming journeys and awareness practices it will become clear that the worst things about your past, and the biggest fears about your future aren’t nearly as painful and heavy as carrying them in your inner world every day.
Releasing those fears, emotional pains, and stories becomes the focus of your intent. In a ceremony that embraces the life cycle of death you are guided to let them go, as well as your past self that was attached to them. Everything temporal dies, and we can use this wisdom to let the past die also. The fear and need to control are replaced with relief in letting go.
Sitting in the dwellings of the masters that lived here 2000 years ago, you can feel their eternal consciousness and let it guide you to open your heart and inner vision. You might be distracted and open your eyes to see the stone walls, or curious what others are doing. But sitting with that group intent you see in others, you return your attention inward to a different possibility for your vision.
These are some of the experiences that will change you and your relationship with others during the week in Teotihuacán.
On a power journey, you’re able to leap forward in ways that might have taken you several years working through on your own. We will use ceremony, ritual, contemplation, laughter, our attention, and every bit of awareness to move beyond the emotions and fears of limiting beliefs in the mind. Then we launch our consciousness deep into the wisdom of the Silent Knowledge of ancient masters.
If any of the above applies to you, we can’t wait to have you joining the Spiritual Power journey to Teotihuacán!
Our journey starts with a whole month of introduction and preparation practices before our week in Teotihuacán. After our week in Mexico you’ll get another month of follow-up calls so you can fully integrate your experiences into your life back home. As soon as you reserve your spot by paying the refundable deposit you’ll get access to our Teo-group in the Self Mastery Community. In there you’ll get all the practical information you need to prepare.
On this journey, you have two experienced teachers leading the way back home to yourself. You will also have your own smaller group with a team leader where you can share more about your personal experience and ask practical questions.
Founder of pathwaytohappiness.com Gary has led numerous Spiritual Journeys to Teotihuacán over the years. His experience in guiding these journeys comes from 20 years of personal study with don Miguel Ruiz. Miguel Ruiz is a Medical Doctor that studied the spiritual traditions from Mexico as well as traditions from around the world. He is also the best-selling author of “The Four Agreements”, “The Mastery of Love” and “The Voice of Knowledge”. Gary’s experience and teachings from his Mentor are both extensive and profound.
Transformational Teacher and Coach Eva started coming to Teotihuacán in 2015. She has a deep connection to this spiritual university since it played an important role in opening her heart and connect her with divine consciousness. Today, she takes clients on a similar journey into a heart-centered life. She is the co-founder of the Self Mastery Community together with Gary. You can hear her in the Uncover YOU podcast.
We stay and enjoy our family-style meals at the beautiful hacienda, Casa de los Sueños. The Dreaming House. The rooms are comfortable with private bathrooms. There is wifi in the common area. We have our morning and evening classes in the larger teaching rooms.
The traditional kitchen is staffed by family members and can accommodate allergies and dietary requests as far as possible. We enjoy our home-cooked meals in the big dining room together.
The weather in Teotihuacan in October will be very comfortable in the 70’s (F) during the day. Low’s at night will be in the 50’s. There is sometimes a chance of showers in the afternoon. The elevation is about 7200 feet with nice mild weather throughout the year.
We are hopeful that we can safely bring people together for another powerful event in Teotihuacan Mexico. A live gathering retreat during the Covid-19 pandemic is beginning to seem possible. Vaccinations are rolling out, and, depending on your country, there is a good chance that many, or most people will be vaccinated by October.
We want to keep you informed and be transparent. If the situation is basically the same by mid-August as it is now, then we will not go. However, we are hopeful for change. Here are some of the current considerations to let you know what we are paying attention to:
Booking and refunds
You reserve your spot by paying the deposit of $500. You pay the remaining amount before our Intro month starts, around September 9th.
Due to changes that may come up because of the pandemic, and the unknown timing for those changes, any individual that needs to cancel their trip will be refunded unspent deposit and payments.
This is our refund option if you cancel your trip:
We strongly recommend that you get travel insurance. Depending on the plan you purchase, it will cover your expense for lost luggage, medical care and evacuation, canceled flights, or canceled trips, lost refunds, and other items.
A Health Advisory (always conservative)
Currently, there is a health advisory recommending that we not travel to Mexico.
We hope the situation has changed greatly, and that travelers will be vaccinated or tested negative by October.
Ideally, everyone that comes on the trip would be vaccinated. However, because of the limited supply, not everyone will have this option available.
Get tested within 3 days before travel
This seems good practice to ensure you are healthy, and so that you don’t infect other travelers or group members.
Tested prior to return travel
US is currently requiring that you are tested within 72 hours of a return flight to the US. There are places at the airport where you can get tested prior to your flight. You will have to check for the requirements for your country of travel.
Covid precautions at the Dreaming House
The Dreaming House will follow state guidelines for Covid. They will take your temperature on arrival, and have cleaning processes to disinfect your luggage. They will take precautions with cleaning rooms, meal preparations, and serving. Their staff will wear masks to limit exposure.
Gathering at the Pyramids
The Archaeological site is currently open and limits access to 3,000 people per day. You need to wear a mask to get in, and perhaps on the grounds as well. The upside here is that we won’t have crowds to contend with on the grounds. On the downside, at present people are not allowed to climb the pyramids, or gather in some of the rooms, and museums. ( We didn’t usually go to the museums anyways, they are boring).
Mask Policy thoughts
Given these other precautions, at the Dreaming House wearing masks will probably be optional. It’s a bit impractical when we are eating meals, although you can sit by yourself if you wish to observe social distancing.
Limiting Group Size
One option to lower risk is to limit group size. We will consider this as the situation develops.
By paying the refundable deposit
Some European countries may add tax to the deposit on check-out. Reach out if you need other payment options.
Yes, this trip can be for you. You can be as private as you like. There are no requirements to share. You could spend the whole week in silence and do the process as a silent retreat. You are invited to be a part of every process, but not required.
We offer a process and respect how each individual wants to do it.
If you want to go off on your own at different times, or not show up for a class, you are free to do so. All we ask is that you let your group leader know so we know you are taken care of and not looking for you when you don’t want to be found.
PS. What many of us discovered was that our past experience of groups gave us that “not belonging” feeling because the group didn’t know how to be kind and accepting. This often happens at a young age. When you find the right group that is willing to accept you, just as you are, then we can shake off the “not a group person” narrative.
You pay a deposit of $400 to reserve your spot. That deposit is refundable until mid-August when after monitoring the pandemic situation in Mexico and elsewhere we will decide if gathering a group is a good option.
If we decide not to go, you’ll get a full refund of your deposit, or can choose to keep it for another event.
You can read more about the safety measures we and the Dreaming House are planning here.
You will get all the practical information in our Teo group once you’re registered. But here are the basics:
October 9 – 16 2021
Arrival: Plan to arrive at the Mexico City airport before 3:00 pm Saturday. A driver will pick you up and take you to the Dreaming House. We will have an early dinner and Class will begin that night.
Departure: The formal teachings will finish with a ceremony Friday at about noon. Then we relax in the afternoon, shop, and enjoy a fiesta in the evening. Departure is on Saturday. Plan for your return flight to depart late morning or afternoon Saturday if possible. If you need to catch an earlier flight, arrangements can be made to get you to the airport.
A taxi ride to the airport outside the normal arrival and departure window will incur an additional fee of approximately $60 US.
You don’t have to share about your own process. You are allowed to be as private as you wish. It is entirely optional.
We open up sharing opportunities during the day, or at evening class. Often someone’s realization or question helps another person with some issue they were wrestling with. Most sharing happens in the casual social times in between and at meals.
We are very careful to steer away from what would look like group therapy sharing. That is not the path or processes we work with. You are more likely to be invited to spend parts of the day in silence, or to be guided inward for deeper self-inquiry.
The recording will be available after the call and you can do the practices there in your own time. If you have a question that you want to be answered, you can post that beforehand and we will answer it during the call.
Answering yes to any of the above? Then you’re ready.
If your mind wants to complicate it more than that, it’s welcome to. But it really can be that simple.
We recommend the events over individual coaching. The amount of instruction for your dollar (peso, euro, crowns, or kuna, etc) goes about 8 times farther at events in person.
The commitment involved in showing up, and the focused attention for several sustained days allow breaking through many more issues in a shorter time than you will do on your own. The processes are much deeper. Your connection and support in a group environment are more conducive to learning and change as well.
The exception to this is if you are working through trauma issues. If you are triggered into trauma reactions of panic, etc., then be more gentle with yourself and do coaching sessions, or work with a professional in this area. At these events, such as Mexico, we do many new and different approaches to challenge, change, and move consciously past your belief systems. For a person recovering from trauma, this may be too triggering to be helpful.
With that said we’ve had several people with trauma backgrounds coming to this journey. They have in combination with other support at home experienced major shifts to their inner world. What’s true for someone else might not be true to you. Feel into what you need and want.
