Both tours are led by Dr. Anne Key and Maria Veronica Iglesias M.A., experts in Mexican culture and spiritual practices. Dr. Key is adjunct faculty in Women’s Studies, English and Religious Studies in New Mexico and California. Her many years of travel and research in Mexico culminated with her dissertation: Death and the Divine: The Cihuateteo, Goddesses in the Mesoamerican Cosmovision. She has authored numerous articles and presentations on Mesoamerica.
Maria Veronica Iglesias was born in Mexico City. She has a Master's Degree in Mesoamerican Studies from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (La Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México). She was initiated as a sahumadora (bearer of the Sacred Sahumerio) when she was 8 years old. She also was instructed in the sacred knowledge of Mesoamerican shamanism and became a Portadora de la Palabra, bearer of the Sacred Word. She is a Priestess of Ix´Cheel, the Mayan Goddess of Medicine.
“The intent of both trips is for people to see Mexico beyond the headlines, and experience places that most tours never visit,” explained Dr. Key. “Our participants will be a part of a living spiritual tradition.”
“We want to immerse people in the rich living spiritual and historic traditions of Mexico,” echoed Iglesias. “There is so much to discover and explore.”
Each tour is $1,499 and limited to 25 participants. The tours include seven nights lodging double occupancy, all in-country transportation, entrance fees and guided tours. There are optional single supplements available, as well as post trip excursions.
