All about the Mayan Blessing

1. What is a Mayan blessing?

If you are interested in wellness experiences, you may have already heard about Mayan ceremonies. But do you know what they really mean?

Connect soul, body and mind with a spiritual ceremony

As you might expect, Mayan blessings are sacred rituals rooted in the culture of that civilization. They are designed to connect us with nature, the cosmos and, above all, with ourselves.

They seek to harmonize the energy that flows through all things to bring balance and prosperity to our lives. In other words, it is a way to start a new cycle and receive good vibes.

2. What is a Mayan ceremony like?

Within the Yucatán Peninsula, there are many types of Mayan ceremonies that you can be a part of. Ranging from gratitude and petitions, to weddings, blessings for the harvest, or even the welcoming of a new year.

Although each one is special in its own way, in all of them altars are prepared with key elements such as water, flowers, copal, corn, honey, fruit, etc. Also, prayers and rituals are performed where the 4 cardinal points of the universe are called upon or invoked.

All this is done by a shaman in the form of chants in his native language while purifying your soul with incense or copal. It is also usually accompanied by traditional music and is done in a place surrounded by nature. Therefore, it is a very popular event in the town of Cobá.

3. How should I dress for a Mayan blessing?

There is really no dress code you should follow to join a Mayan blessing, however, opting for light colors such as white can add a special touch.

Since white universally symbolizes purity and peace, it creates the perfect harmony with the nature that surrounds you during the ceremony. While the choice of attire is personal, dressing in light colors reflects respect for the spirituality of the event. 

4. Where can I find this type of experience?

If you are eager to immerse yourself in the magic of the Mayan blessings, there is no better place to do it than Coba, an ancient Mayan city inside the jungle, surrounded by ruins, mystical cenotes and culture.
