Transcendent Wisdom of the Maya: The Ceremonies and Symbolism of a Living Tradition

by Gabriela Jurosz-Landa Author

Author Gabriela Jurosz-Landa is an anthropologist and Maya shaman-priestess: in Transcendent Wisdom of the Maya she shares her first hand knowledge of ancient Maya spiritual practices. Delving into practical matters such as the initiation process, rituals, prayers, and ceremonies, Jurosz-Landa also explains the foundations of Mayan spirituality. She dismisses misconceptions and reveals the Maya calendar as a living entity, its cycles of time, and the significance of “the counting of the days,” which helps keep time itself alive.
