Ancient Wisdom Today
“To be Mayan is not the color of your skin.
To be Mayan is your consciousness.”
~Elder Hunbatz Men,
Mayan daykeeper, shaman, ceremonial leader
We may come from different families and traditions, but all of us share the same ancestors. Ancient wisdom is here for all humankind to learn and benefit from, with great gratitude and respect.
Indigenous tradition, at its core, values the relationships we have with ancestors, with the Earth and the Sun, and with Spirit. These relationships direct a way of being.
Ancient wisdom is Earth medicine, humanity’s original translations of the workings of the Universe into a holistic practice of integrated science and spirituality. Meditation, prayer, and making offerings are among the techniques used by our ancestors, as valid today as they were millennia ago.
We give great gratitude to our teachers from indigenous traditions: Mary Magdalene of the Cross, Hunbatz Men, Rigoberto Itzep Chanchavac, and Miguel Angel of the Mayan lineage, and Diana Falconi of the Andean tradition. They continue inspiring us to cultivate and share more lightness on this good Earth.
