Exploring together the ancient practices of the Mayans and their rich Cosmology
Mayan Medicine is indeed a millenia-old traditional healing system which is not well known by the public and intenionally kept out of reflectors. It is still practiced in remote areas of Guatemala, Mexico and Belize by a few elders who struggle for transmitting such a great knowledge.
The unicity of this healing art is its profound Cosmology, unifying all aspects of the Universe and Humanity in a wholistic perspective.
