    Anyone have an undedited version of their mayan ceremony?  The pictures look amazing and sounds great, but Utube only has videos with music over them.  I really want to hear what they say and look at what the experience is really like.

     

    please share

      Yes - I'd love to see that, too. Or if anyone has actually had a Mayan ceremony and can share a little bit about the experience, that would be great. We're probably going to go with the Mayan ceremony, and I'd like to know what to expect!

          I copied this from another thread:

          Guests stand in circle around you to create a "circle of love", creating an energy

          Each cardinal direction represents a different god (here's where I get fuzzy, my notes are at home) love, beauty, protection, purity, earth (ground), heaven (sky). Couple is presented to each direction for their blessing

          A direct connection to the earth - participants are barefoot, on the sand, candle and props are on the ground

          flower petals representing the gifts of the gods (a different color for each direction) - the couple is sprinkled with the flower petals

          candle - represents your commitment, it is lit at the beginning of the ceremony and burns throughout the entire ceremony. The ceremony is stopped so that the candle can be relit if it ever goes out.

          At the end of the ceremony, each guest is given an opportunity to offer the couple their good wishes or words of advice

          active participation - guests are given musical instruments and celebrate the blessings after each god blesses the couple
