Dear TAO Friends,

March is a month of seasonal change – let’s hope. Many of you have had an unusually difficult winter. Aside from escaping to TAO, I recommend you make a fearless attempt to get outside, regardless of the rain or snow. It’s important to be careful in dangerous conditions of course, but very often the resistance to the cold or wet makes it all worse.

Much like life, when we are afraid to face something, such as a problem, it grows bigger in our minds, and gains emotional power. When we face our problems, experiencing the emotions and exploring the perspectives, they become more manageable and ultimately don’t seem so bad. In the same way a cold scene out your window is transformed after you bundle up and go for a walk. Time the time to watch the changes in the world around you: appreciate the snow, smell the beauty of the rain, watch the clouds in the sky and patterns on the earth. Anything we approach with an open heart and willingness will reveal its beauty in time.

This attitude of renewal and embrace the natural beauty of our lives and our world is a core theme in our specially priced MAY 8 – 12, TAO Workshop - NATURAL RENEWAL: EXPERIENCING SPIRIT AND ENERGY IN THE RIVIERA MAYA with Jonathan Ellerby PhD and Traditional Healer Adrian Salas. A great mother’s day present, this workshop combines lectures, small group experience, and time to directly experience the culture, ecology and beauty of our region. Don’t miss it!

Take Care, we hope to see you soon.

Jonathan Ellerby PhD.

Many cenotes have become famous touristic destinations, such as Tres Bocas (The three mouths), Cristalino (Cristaline), El Jardin de Eden (The Garden of Eden), Dos Ojos cenote (2 eyes) Yax Mul, Cenote Azul (Blue Cenote) and the most known and mysterious one – the Sacred Cenote or the “Well of Sacrifice”.

Equinox at Chichen Itza
Join us for this amazing trip to the world famous Chichen Itza and be part of the Spring Equinox. The Mayan archaeological site of Chichen Itza is the most popular spot in Mexico to celebrate the spring equinox. The site's most famous building, The Kukulcan temple, is the site of a dramatic display of Mayan astronomical knowledge.

Every year on the autumn and spring equinoxes the light of the sun makes a play of light and shadow which makes it look like a serpent is slithering along the steps of the pyramid. The effect begins in the late afternoon, around 4 pm, and lasts for an hour or so. The serpent appears for a few days - from around March 19th to the 23rd, but on the actual date of the equinox the effect is most obvious.

We will be carpooling for this event and each person pays for the own entrance to Chichen Itza (roughly 40USD per person) + food and a contribution for gas.
