Mayan Fire Ceremony
In traditional Mayan day-count fire ceremonies, beautiful offerings are created and consumed by the fire, invoking awareness and connection with all that is. The Maya remind us to dwell in the innocent heart of the child, prompting us to leave behind our busy minds and conditioned concept of self.
In the spirit of the ancient traditions, this sacred circle and celebration centers around the sharing of a cacao elixir, known as the “food of the Gods” to connect with your hearts. Be warned: your heart will expand beyond your imagination, leading to pure bliss, laughter, joy and allowing more of who you are to shine through.
Visit one of Guatemala’s most famous marketplaces, known for its colorfully and brightly dressed Quiche Maya. Starting with a short boat ride to Panajachel, you will be picked up by a private van and drive for an hour through the Mayan highlands, passing through fertile countryside. In Chichi, browse through the marketplace for handicrafts, candles, flowers and incense. This is the place to find that special keepsake or simply enjoy the action of this highland town on market day. (Thursday 9:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m.)

YogaMcc owner and integrationist since January 2019. Daemond grew up in Calgary, but he is a traveler by trade, having visited over 30 countries in his life. One of his favorite things to do is understand how other people live on this earth. Like most of us, he has often wondered why we are here. Daemond has sat with Monks in the Temples of South East Asia and has spent time with Aboriginals in Australia learning about Dreamtime. He has journeyed with Shamans in Central America and created concoctions with witch doctors in Africa. He has read and researched much in the vein of spirituality and science and connections between the two, a field called Epigenetics.
Daemond is also very passionate about building community and safe containers for seekers to grow into their highest vision of themselves. For him this all starts with a foundation of friendship. Daemond’s primary practices are Meditation and Breathwork. He is certified to teach Clarity Breathwork, Numa Breathwork, and has studied breathwork at the Omega Institute in New York. He is also certified to teach Active Meditations from Osho Humaniversity in Holland, Systemic & Family Constellations, and was given permission to teach the life’s work of Zen Master Nissim Amon, a modality called Trilotherapy, which includes Zen Buddhist meditation. He also enjoys integrating sound into his offerings and is certified by Jonathan Goldman in sound healing. He’s very passionate about sharing all these tools with the humans around him that feel called to explore the depths of who we are.

Jeri and Daemond are lovely and loving teachers that kindly guided us during very intensive processes with such peace and compassion. I respect their experience and knowledge and was honoured to learn from them and also have fun with them! I would recommend this retreat to others. My experience in Panama with Jeri and Daemond was transformative. I returned cleansed, calm, and smiling, feeling informed about myself and full of love. ~ Stella A.
I got and overall feeling of groundedness that I took home with me and I continue to cultivate though the practice of qi gong, mediation, self-love, forgiveness of self, and others. I have the upmost respect for Jeri and Daemond. Absolutely, I would recommend this retreat to others. It helped me unblock some deep seated traumas. ~Tony R.
