New Video – The Trecena of Aq’ab’al (12th – 24th November 2020)

Somewhere in the darkness, light begins to make its presence known. This is the beginning of beginnings, it is the first spark of the fire. The first spark needs tending, gentle use of breath and material in order to grow it into the fire it will become. The spark may represent a new idea that you have, but this is the first thought of this idea. It is something that comes in the waking moment, fresh from the dream world. It has started to emerge into this world, but is still uncertain, hidden and yet to take much form. This is the moment where it needs support and tending, just as the spark, or the newborn needs care and attention. This is where the input and encouragement of family, friends and community can help that spark to become the fire, or that newborn to grow.

This is the trecena of Aq’ab’al, the new concept, coming gradually into the new day. It is a time to begin new projects, to bring new concepts into the world.

A few days ago the communities in Northern Guatemala suffered a tragedy as the tropical storm Eta brought flooding and landslides. Our friends at Utopia Eco Hotel created an emergency fund to help some of the people affected by these events. If you wish to donate, please follow this link.

The effects of the pandemic are still affecting the people of my local villages too. If you wish to help relieve the current food crisis, please check out these links:

New Video – Wayeb and the New Solar Cycle 8 No’j

As we go into the day 3 E’ we enter the final five days of the Mayan solar year, a period known as Wayeb. This is a period of introspection, of retreat, known for its unpredictable energies. Here I share some information about the Mayan solar year and the year bearers, as well as Wayeb.

This is a part of the “Living the Sacred Calendar” presentation I made on 13 Toj (12th February 2020) at Samsara’s Garden, San Marcos la Laguna.
