New Video – The Trecena of K’at (23rd November – 5th December 2022)

The Trecena of K’at gives us the opportunity to reassess what we wish to keep, and what we wish to let go of, in order to grow. It contains one of the most important days of the calendar, Wajxakib (8) B’atz, the day of initiation, the first day of the ceremonial cycle.

Popol Jay is an ancient name to define the House of the Council of Elders, among the Maya of Guatemala. These were places of wisdom where sacred knowledge about medicine, the calendars, music, spiritual practice and more was kept and passed to future generations. All were burnt down during the Conquest and subsequent Colonization periods. Today, the Q’eqchi’ Maya Council of Elders Releb’aal Saq’e has joined forces with many supporters to rebuild the Popol Jay of the North, in the lowlands of the Petén region, heart of the Maya culture of the Classic Period. The Elders have worked hard to acquire land and co-design this Center of Knowledge to share ancient wisdom with the World. To donate to the Elders of Peten to fund the Popol Jay, please use this link https://urlis.net/3mpy4

Within the village of San Pablo la Laguna, there is an organisation doing great work. They are called ODIM and are specialising in medical and educational services. During the pandemic restrictions, they helped feed many people, but this is in addition to their regular, long term work there. You can find out more about them through this link https://tinyurl.com/yb4l3rux

If you would like to dive deeper into the sacred calendar, I will be running a workshop via Zoom from 10 am – 2pm (Guatemala Time, UTC -6) from 5th to 10th December 2022. There are currently some spaces available. For more information, please go to https://thefourpillars.net/?page_id=1120

Please watch our movie for a deeper understanding of the importance of preserving sacred medicinal plant and their inherent ancestral knowledge: https://m.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=qyWmxDRJYbA&feature=emb_logo.
The total cost of this project reaches close to 500,000 USD as you can see in the link, but we are asking for your help to begin the first section through your kind donations to reach a first sum of 50,000 CHF.
No matter the size of your donation, the Elders wish to give back a gift of wisdom never shared before. With your donation, you will receive a PDF copy of the unique book about Maya Medicine in Guatemala (see table of content http://cirma.org.gt/library/images/f/f9/51593.pdf ). Currently available only in Spanish, we are working hard to develop an English version.
Please help us recreate this special place of Wisdom for Earth, hoping one day you will stand next to us to make the dream of Green Health for All, entirely possible.

I am currently working on my 2023 calendar and it will be available in November. This time around it will be receiving an upgrade that I think you will all appreciate – more to come when I reveal it in November! As always, printed versions, in English, will be available locally in Guatemala, and pdf versions in both English and Spanish will be available for the rest of the world.

In the meantime, if you are the more technically minded I have created a plugin for Google calendar which will enable you to track the days of the sacred calendar on your smartphone. I am currently updating it so that it will also give a summary of the energy of the day. In this way you can ensure that your activities are aligned to the most conducive energies! It is available for purchase here.
