The Meditation Hill is a sacred space designated for ceremony, meditation, yoga and weddings. It is a temple without walls, a roofless architecture, encapsulated by nature. Located at the precipice of an energy vortex, it stands atop steep cliffs and magnificant ocean views. The sunrises and sunsets are inspiring. Schedule of guided meditation classes may vary.
At Shambhala we have a very long history of receiving Indigenous peoples from around the world to share and participate in various ceremonies, traditions, practices and rituals.
New Year’s Ceremony
A long standing tradition at Shambhala is an event widely attended by people from around the globe. The ceremony takes place on New Year and the focus is to clean our spirits.
We believe the symbol of our soul is the flower, and we bring it to the fire with all the negativity that we have inside us in the form of a tree of life that we will construct during celebration.
New Year’s Celebration, Shambhala Style!
The temazcal (or sweatlodge) was traditionally used by the Mayan culture to purify the body, mind, and spirit to reach a deep connection with Mother Earth. They would enter the temazcal for days at a time in search of the answers within themselves, exiting the ritual as a newly profound being. Laboring women also enter the temazcal to birth their babies using the heat, aromatherapy, and chantings as a guide in bringing a new life into the world. In general, the temazcal was viewed by the Mayans as the womb of Mother Earth.
The temazcal experience is unique to each participant. It is said to release emotions, creativity, toxins, and more. Step inside for yourself and find out what you will discover through this ancient Mayan tradition.
