“In Lak’ech Ala K’in,” “I am you, and you are me.” Maya Greeting
Welcome to Maya Journey
Join me on a journey of self-discovery, learning and magic. Learn about the World of the Maya and follow me when I visit pyramids and temples, Chamanes and Abuelos (Shamans and Maya Elders). Discover the enigmatic Maya Culture that created a complex system of rituals and civil calendars as well as the vigesimal system that included the concept of zero. My goal is to spread the knowledge of the Maya in order to protect their rights and culture. Through education, we will change the world.
Please join us in this magical virtual trip and join our effort to spread the knowledge, magic and insight of the Maya Abuelos – “Elders.”
New Awakening – Transform your life
As part of our journey, we help build Eco-friendly stoves, Solar Straw Homes and Ecological Waste Systems. Please spread the information about the stoves as they are very easy to build, materials required are very inexpensive for us, and affordable to the locals. If you go to a third world country please print the free manual with the instructions. It is very easy to follow and you can distribute them when you see the need. Not only will you be saving trees and deforestation but you will be saving the lungs and the eyesight of the locals. I also posted the free manuals to build the Solar Straw Homes and Ecological Waste Systems: How to build an Eco-friendly Stoves, Homes, Water and Solar Systems – Manual de Estufas de Leña y Casas de Paja – Wood Stoves and Straw Homes Manual.

I’ve been trying to translate all my notes from the early 60′s. Many of the Abuelos – Elders and Chamanes – that taught me are living in other dimensions we can’t reach; they are gone. I hope their teachings can be printed so that the new generations can learn from them. There are many authors that learn from school or visit the Maya for a couple of days and they are “experts.” I lived with the Maya-Lacandón; we had to hunt, eat and live like them. We had to take notes, draw and press leaves in our notes. My notes are falling apart and I would like to save all the information. My children’s e-book is based on one of the many legends of the Maya and my notes are almost transcribed. I have interviewed scores of Maya Elders over more than 30 years and have asked them to recount the most important aspects of their culture, history, belief systems and so on.
Never has a Maya Elder said: “We predict the world will end in 2012.” Because that is not and never was a Maya prediction. At the very least, I want to set the record straight on this one thing. We need to find how to publish the truth. I’ve received e-mails offering me a partnership, but that is not what I want. Thank you once more for your kind words. Sincerely, María
