Ancient Mayan blessings
Mayan blessings are the most popular rituals you will find in the modern world, after all, they are a fundamental part of the culture and daily life of this civilization. 
These ceremonies are performed by local shamans and, although they can be done with different motives in mind, their main purpose is to seek the protection of their gods and to bring harmony and balance to the lives of those who participate in them. 
In order to carry them out, several key elements are used, such as flowers, copal, corn, honey, fruits, etc. All with the purpose of purifying body and soul!
Mayan Weddings
Getting married is an important step in life, and for the Mayans, it was even more special! Rather than just the union of two people, this event was full of symbolism and spirituality.
Although it is purely symbolic, through mayan rituals, couples have the opportunity to bless their marriage. From the exchange of vows to the blessing of the four cardinal points, each part of the ceremony is designed to strengthen the bond between the couple and ensure their future happiness and prosperity.
They usually take place in natural and sacred settings, involving the elements of the universe and the earth.
The cacao ceremony
For many cultures cacao has always been an important element in their history, and believe it or not, what today is a widely consumed product once was exclusively the food of the gods.
In fact, for the Mayas, it was so important that they considered it a sacred beverage that connected people with the divine. Therefore, through the cacao ceremony they hoped to create a deep connection between body, mind and soul, as well as balance energies and revitalize health.
In Coba, you can participate in a cacao ceremony guided by local experts, where you will learn about the history and spiritual significance of this sacred plant. 
The Spring Equinox
For many, the spring equinox marks a time of renewal and growth, and several cultures celebrate it with special ceremonies.
In the Yucatán region, one of the most popular Mayan rituals is the spring blessing. A traditional ceremony to honor the gods of the sun and fertility, as well as to give thanks for the beginning of the planting season.
In addition, this ceremony is a unique opportunity to experience the deep connection between humanity and nature that the ancient Maya valued so highly.
Mayan temazcal
Last but not least, the temazcal is an ancient purification ritual used to cleanse the body, mind and spirit, making it one of the favorite Mayan rituals among wellness enthusiasts!
This ceremony takes place in a mud and stone structure called temazcal, where medicinal herbal vapors are generated to cause sweating and eliminate toxins from the body.
