About the Event


The Days Out of Time  - Mayan Calendar Workshops- Shamanic Dreaming- Stellar Channelling 

Tucked in the subtropical jungle of Chiapas, Palenque is one of the most extraordinary cities of the ancient Mayan world; located inside a lush national park, Palenque is a feast for the senses and for the spiritual seeker, a mystical place where the stones speak to you, where you walk in between realities, where dreams and the awaken state seem one and the same. Aligned with the planet Venus, Palenque is considered one of the most important energy points on earth, as it stores the frequency of the liberated heart. Palenque is also the home of the Solar Disc, the Mayan Sun God, which guards the secrets of the solar calendar. Every year, the calendar completes a cycle, and opens the Days out of Time, a very sacred time of reflection, healing and deep connection to our Star Family. At this time real change takes place for the individual and for the collective, by channelling the healing powers of the Solar Disc. Children of the Sun is an experiential journey where you merge science and spirituality, learn about sacred geometry and Mexican shamanism, and take home the wisdom of the Mayan calendars. This is a full immersion experience where you will be guided across several multidimensional doorways, to connect to the energies of the pyramids, of the jungle and of the ancestors from the stars.

The journey fundraises for the Children of the Sun project which brings alternative educational programs to the mayan children of the surrounding villages. The project, launched in August 2021, helps local children reclaim their cultural identity through pre hispanic art, science and spirituality, to inspire them to build strong foundations for their educational and professional future. During the week you will spend a day with the children and participate in their creative projects. At Children of the Sun you will explore shamanic practices, sacred archeology and mayan ceremonies for everyday wellbeing; you will connect to your star lineage and channel the Sun energies to replenish vitality, joy and wonder. On this exclusive shamanic adventure, you will discover first hand the mysteries of the Solar Disc in the place where it was born. Palenque can help you find answers to the personal and collective questions of our time. 

The experience is open to experienced seekers as well as beginners, and we have limited numbers to preserve the intimacy of the inner and community work. In 2022 step out of time and join us in Palenque to unlock the sacred codes that you have been carrying inside for hundreds, maybe thousands of years. It is Time.
