(traditional incense), vegetables, and farming tools.
Next to the market is the 400-year old church of Santo Tomas. It is built atop a Pre-Columbian
temple platform, and the steps, which originally led to a temple of the pre-Hispanic Maya civilization,
still remain sacred to the locals. K'iche' Maya priests still use the church steps for their rituals, burning
incense and candles. After exploring the market, a Shaman will perform a ceremony on a nearby hill

    The Hieroglyphic Stairway into the sun, includes the longest
    single glyphic text found at any Maya site. Stories of UFO
    sightings abound throughout the surrounding villages.  

This afternoon we’ll also visit the ancient site of Las Sepulturas, located about 3 miles away. This smaller complex, peaceful and in lovely
surroundings, is connected to Copan by a “sacbe” or elevated causeway now closed to visitors. Las Sepulturas does not hold much interest for
the casual tourist, but for us, this is a powerful place to explore past lives as this is where the ancient Maya buried their nobleman and royalty.

Early departure as we board our bus and travel on a scenic drive from Honduras into Guatemala. Along the way we will stop and visit Quirigua,
one of the smallest Mayan cities, but one of the most mysterious and powerful due to its splendid series of monuments. Large sandstone obelisks
were created to mark important cosmic events. Each spectacular sculpture is that of a Star Elder Being and is adorned with symbolic information
encircled by gods and sacred animals. The sides and backs are etched with Maya calendar glyphs giving dates to significant events.

Quirigua has mesmerized countless travelers. British author, Aldous Huxley, noted that Quirigua's stela commemorate ". . . human triumph over
time and matter and the triumph of time and matter over man." Quirigua is an excellent place to experience a group past life regression.
During our drive to Tikal we will also stop at the local market with our guide to buy ceremonial items that we will use for our ceremony at Tikal
the next day.   Late afternoon arrival at our lovely jungle lodge,
The Tikal Inn.

    DAY 10.   MON. March 5  TIKAL, Guatemala.  B L D
    Wake up to the raucous calls of the howler monkey and experience sunrise over the magnificent Jaguar Temple of Tikal.
    Discover a lost world once inhabited by the ancient Maya more than two thousand years ago, a world that has slumbered
    remarkably intact under a mantle of thick vegetation for nine centuries. Many call Tikal one of the most spiritually powerful
    spots on Earth as it possesses a certain quality of magic that fascinates and enchants. Tikal’s towering pyramids loom out of
    the misty jungle canopy like living sentinels of ancient times. This monumental site includes more than 3,000 structures
    extending over six square miles and includes palaces, temples, ceremonial platforms, ball courts, terraces, plazas, avenues
    and steam baths.


    It is a jungle paradise. Our guide will take us to the major temple sites
    and then you will have some time to explore on your own. Keep an eye
    out for monkeys, macaws and the cute coatimundi roaming around.
    The doorways between dimensions, sunrise and sunset are perfect
    times for a past life regression experience. We will experience a
    sacred ceremony by a local Mayan Shaman surrounded by the mystery
    of Tikals mighty temples.  Overnight Tikal Inn.



DAY 11. WED.  March 6  FLORES TO GUATEMALA CITY AIRPORT, Guatemala.

connect with your departure flight back to your home city. Do not schedule your departure flight
home earlier than 12:00 noon.

Welcome home from a magical and mystical adventure exploring the mysteries of the Maya and
the mysteries inside your self! You return home with a new awareness of a different culture but
yet a deep connection with the “oneness” of all peoples. But best of all, lasting memories and new
friendships with like-minded, kindred spirits!
You might discover…..that you knew each other in a Maya Past Life!
Join Petey Silveira, author of, "Musings to Help the Soul Remember" past-life regression  
facilitator, psychotherapist, hypnotherapist and radio show host on a magical journey of
ancient Mayan mysteries and culture in Guatemala and Honduras. This unique adventure will allow you to
explore some of the most impressive and mysterious ancient sites of the Maya world, natural wonders, rain
forests and jungles filled with indigenous wildlife and striking bird life. Explore the many pyramids and temples
of the impressive ancient sites of Tikal in Guatemala and Copan in Honduras. There will be plenty of time to
wander the cobblestone streets of colonial Antigua, one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the America’s.
Marvel at the volcanoes that surround the azure waters of Lake Atitlan, considered one of the most beautiful
lakes in the world. Enjoy a boat trip and visit small native villages that surround the lake and learn about their
culture and spiritual beliefs. No visit to Guatemala would be complete without some shopping time at the famous
market at Chichicastenango where you can shop for local treasures and experience sacred ceremonies by local
Mayan Shaman. During the course of your adventure, Petey Silveira will be introducing you to the concept that
our Soul cycles through many life-times. Perhaps the ancient Maya sites will invoke a sense that you’ve “been
here before”? Perhaps you will have a “past life experience” that takes you back to a time when you lived and
worshipped within the magnificent Mayan temples and pyramids. If you feel drawn to travel with Petey to these
ancient Maya sites, trust that feeling and know it to be your Soul calling.
