Path with a Heart: Toltec Dreaming
Pilgrimage and Vision Quest
with Mario Mayorga and Rocio Lopez
About Our Guides
Mario Gómez Mayorga. Founder and director of Con Ciencia Indígena, (with Indigenous Science) Mario has more than 25 years of relationship with the most preserved indigenous groups of Mexico sharing Toltec roots, specifically the Huichols, Mazatecs, Nahuas, and Mayas.
Mario teaches workshops, retreats, and at conferences related to human development, self healing, and shamanic techniques, transmitting practical ways to apply indigenous knowledge in modern everyday life. He conducts tours to Mexican natural power places and pre-hispanic cities to make deep connections though ceremonies, rituals and indigenous practices. He has 33 years of experience exploring altered states of consciousness and assisting and helping people into those realms and healings though sacred power plants.
Being a member of Conservacion Humana A.C., he has participated in the re-opening of an almost lost millenary pilgrimage route, a 680 kilometers walk to the most sacred lands of the Huichol nation.
Mario is author of the book Here and Now dealing with subjects as lucidity, awareness, attention focus, and consciousness.
Recently he was filmed by The History Channel for a segment of the series “Strange Rituals” in the documentary “Last Rites” showing a Toltec live burial initiation ceremony, “The Burial of the Warrior”.
Mario's main concern has been to transmit tools that may help people in their self-exploration adventures, with no other teacher than direct experience and intentionally made actions, with the foundation that no one can teach you anything, but only you can learn or teach yourself, as well as to recover your relationship with nature and Mother Earth, thanks to whom we exist and who can help us make deep connections with the spirit of life.
Rocío López Ruíz. The entrance to a great change is getting closer, but Rocio never personally imagined that the change would be so real. After living an ordinary life, at the age of 21 a clinical death brought a 360° shift to her life and from this experience she has been dedicated to the exploration of subconscious depths though indigenous Toltec knowledge as a personal transformation tool. Being a nutritional adviser she has dedicated more than 21 years to physical, mental and spiritual health, aware that nutrition is much more than what we eat, since we nourish ourselves from what we think, say, listen, see, personal relations, and the world in which we live.
For 19 years Rocío has been an active coordinator in Con Ciencia Indigena´s human development workshops, teaching self-healing and shamanic techniques, and transmitting practical ways to apply indigenous knowledge into everyday life.
She now has 19 years of relationship with Huichol and Mazatec indigenous nations.
As a member of Conservacion Humana A.C. she was part of the team in the re-opening of the sacred Huichol route.
Rocio participated in the “Sacred Rites” documentary for the History Chanel.
Currently she has a TV nutrition program and gives nutrition and holistic health workshops, convinced that awakening physical consciousness will gradually unchain a spiritual awakening.
