Since 1977, AumRak has been blessed to channel the loving energies and messages of “MAMITA”, the name that she uses to refer to Mother Earth. As a timekeeper of the Sacred Mayan Calendar, an initiated Mayan priestess and a High Priestess of Melchizedek: she is here to serve the planet and humanity as an instrument in service of the living God/Goddess – to harmonize the energies of the four direction and activate vortexes for healing. As a teacher and interpersonal psychologist, AumRak offers workshops and seminars all over the world. She believes it’s imperative to share the knowledge she has accumulated in order to empower people to choose a path of enlightenment, to live a life of purpose and in pursuit of happiness and spiritual unity.From a very young age, AumRak was fascinated by the Spiritual path, which led her to develop a deep connection to nature. Yoga and books on the subjects of metaphysics took her deeper into her search of truth and spirituality. Finally, She was drawn to the shamanic tradition of her homeland, and the Mayan civilization. To become a Mayan priestess AumRak embarked on pilgrimages to 20 different sacred sites in Mexico, Belize, Honduras, and Guatemala. Her teacher, Padre Juan de Dios, guided her process as a Mayan apprentice. Facing my fears and my insecurities, She learned to harmonize herself, find the lessons of each experience and allowed her life to become a celebration.Following the Sacred Maya Calendar, she learned to understand it as a map of time, and flowing with it, she learned to live in total surrender to her inner guidance, her feelings, and her connection with the All.http://www.aumrak.com
Alexis Irias, also know as Lex, first met AumRak 12 years ago in Roatan, Honduras, her native country. She was 18 at the time as she watched and listened in wonder to the conversations that AumRak had with friends who had recently returned from Bali. They spoke of meditation, Yoga, the importance of caring for the earth and of holistic healing techniques. They spoke with love, compassion and intention. This resonated with her and from that day on she modeled herself after these powerful conscious women, and became deeply curios about ancient wisdom and healing.
Her yoga practice developed soon after. Having experienced both physical and emotional trauma, she claims yoga is the best discovery and biggest blessing that has manifested into her life. She became fascinated with the healing capabilities of the mind/body connection through the breath and found deep spiritual fulfillment with this practice. She immersed herself into different styles of yoga, including hatha, ashtanga, kundalini, hot yoga, yin and restorative she found a love and connection to all modalities.
For more than eight years she found joy and peace with being a student, so much so she hesitated to teach. Even after completing yoga teacher training to deepen her own practice, she didn’t jump into teaching but instead kept experiencing different classes and workshops. She completed a level one Reiki certification, and studied meditation, joyfulness and buddhism for a few years with Kunga Dawa in Boulder, CO. It wasn’t until recently meeting with AumRak again that she felt truly called to step into the role of an instructor and offer her wisdom to the community. She now teaches a Spanish yoga and meditation class in Denver, CO and will soon be teaching more classes in the local community.
Her classes incorporate a unique blend of all the healing modalities she has learned and continues to learn. She emphasizes the importance of being raw and true to oneself while we go through this fascinating human experience; a human experience that is worth embracing as one of it’s kind yet connected to all beings.
She’s incredibly excited and honored to be teaching yoga for AumRak’s retreat in Copan, Honduras. One of her soul’s mission on this earth is to plant seeds of consciousness in a country that she feels incredibly passionate about and that at this time needs it. She hopes this event will bring together individuals who will bring light and love to Honduras while learning about ancient Mayan wisdom and shamanic healing.
Hacienda San Lucas
Hacienda San Lucas is a 100-year old property that was converted into an eco-lodge in 2000. The hacienda is situated on 300 acres of pristine tropical forest in Western Honduras, and overlooks the renowned Maya Ruins of Copan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hacienda was lovingly restored by hand to its original design using only local materials, techniques and labor. The pioneering success of Hacienda San Lucas sends a powerful signal to the region that sustainable ecotourism works. San Lucas now serves as a role model for positive change.
Enjoy the Gaia Meditation and Yoga Pavilion, the perfect place for morning and sunset yoga and meditations with its sweeping views of the green valley below. The restaurant at San Lucas is a culinary destination all of its own. Not only can you indulge your palate in our inspired regional cuisine prepared by our creative local Maya Chorti staff, but you can also join Us and learn to roll tortillas and wrap tamales.
Not to mention, The Hacienda boasts its very own Mayan ruins on-site!
The mission of Hacienda San Lucas is to provide guests a unique and unforgettable experience based on a spiritual commitment to share our family’s patrimony of an authentic rural hacienda that is helping the development of neighboring communities. This responsibility includes the care and preservation of the nature and archaeology, as well as personal attention to each visitor, so that our guests feel like personal friends of our family.

“I have known AumRak Sapper for many years, as colleague Shaman, consciousness expander, and community leader. She is one of the most articulate, ethical and effective Shaman on the planet. Her workshops and presentations are most enlightening, entertaining, and relevant. I highly recommend her for conducting retreats, workshops, presentations and residencies at consciousness centers, festivals, and for ceremonies. She is an A+ Shaman, shamanic educator, facilitator and human being! She appreciate knowledge from many fields, including medicine, philosophy, music, and more. Anyone who gets to spend time with her is very fortunate.”
~ Norman Katz PHD
AumRak lives her life as a shaman – her example teaches all who know her. A few words from her can change your life. It has for me and I am forever grateful.
~ Barbara C Lemaire, PhD, Reiki Master, Coach.
My testimony is that when I was starting to walk the shamanic path, I found many male guides, and the nanas (female mayan spiritual guides) were not empowered. AumRak allowed me to meet a strong Mother, healed to be able to guide us. She taught me to be compassionate and persistent in my spiritual formation, she helped me to become a better (spiritual) guide and to believe in my own power. She supported me a lot in my own transformation, From a little worm to a butterfly. Thank you for your light, and that you bring the best of your Self to the whole World.”
