FESTIVAL LA MUERTE
Exploring and Celebrating La Muerte - Mictlantecuhtli and Mictlancihuatl in Mexico with Sergio Magaña 31 - October 8 November 2018 - Mexico City at The Four Points Hotel and Casa La Sueñios in Teotihuacan
For hundreds of years, since the time of the Aztecs, the tiny town of Mixquic, south east of Mexico City, has rung the Church Bells on Nov. 1 at 12:43 to welcome back their ancestors to honour their lineage and celebrate them with flowers, incense and their favourite foods.
This Pilgrimage was a peak, life changing experience last year. All who attended Sergio’s Pilgrimage were profoundly affected by the opportunity to call in their ancestors and offer healings going back many generations. Our consciousness around Death and Dying was further explored with trips to other ancient sites to learn the different ways our Spirit can exit the body at the moment we transition into another reality. The Pixar movie “Coco” is making the world aware of the power and magic of Mexico’s celebration of “The Day of the Dead”.
This adventure will change your life by bringing new understanding to the process of Death by transforming it from something to be feared into something to be celebrated.
You will discover the importance of having a conscious Death leading you to becoming a joyful and enlightened Spiritual Warrior! The Nahual tradition regards death as a companion to life. Life and death are both embodied by the Goddess of Life and Death Coatlicue, whose head is formed by two serpents symbolizing the meeting of life and death, which complement each other and are only separated by the illusion of time.
A few words of introduction to those of you, who have never experienced Sergio’s teachings personally, in “Caves of Power”, his third book, Sergio shares powerful practices of healing, rejuvenation, manifestation and enlightenment which include Toltec/Aztec Calendar numerology, astral surgery dreaming and manifestation. Sergio’s work unveils secrets of this powerful ancient knowledge before taught only from master to student and not available in writing. Sergio is dedicated to bringing knowledge and healing to our key issues such as emotions, health, abundance and the quest for enlightenment.

We will visit Xochitecatl the place of Xoltzcuintli, the keeper of all Underworlds. We will have an opportunity to heal all our previous uncounscious deaths, redeeming all old winds (karma). The name xōlōitzcuintli comes from the god Xolotl and itzcuīntli meaning a dog in Nahuatl. Archaeological evidence has been found in the tombs of the Colima, Mayan, Toltec, Zapotec, and Aztec Indians dating the breed to over 3500 years ago. Long regarded as guardians and protectors, the indigenous peoples believed that the Xolo would safeguard the home from evil spirits as well as intruders. Xolos were considered sacred dogs by the Aztecs, Toltecs, Maya, and other groups.

I received thes lovely acknowledgements are form Suzanne and Maria Antonietta, the winners of the March Pilgrimage, the Caves of Power in March last year!
"The Caves of Power retreat has been the most powerful experience I've had in terms of spiritual /magical practice.The retreat has acted as a catalyst for a deep process that is still unfolding now. Since I feel a greater sense of self-esteem, have made a decision to leave London and have healed a fatigue issue that has affected me on and off for 6 years. Not to mention a vast improvement on a heart condition of a family member. I can't thank Sergio and his team enough for this experience!" Suzanne
I was overwhelmed with joy and excitement and very grateful to the Universe for this wonderful gift. The trip has been fantastic and the magical experience I had has even exceeded my expectations!!!
I have enjoyed every moment to the fullest and want to say a massive thank you to Sergio for his wisdom, spiritual knowledge and all the sacred information he shared with us. God bless youuuu!!!!
Now I am in love with Mexico and its holy places where I had the best time of my Life and just want to go back there and know more about these ancient cultures I feel so close to my heart!"- Antonietta
