Programs in Portland, OR on July 24 and 26, 2014
Hunbatz Men is teaching two programs at New Renaissance Bookstore in Portland OR:
Mystic Codes in Mayan Language, Friday July 25, 7:00-8:30pm – $15 Mayan language contains mystic codes. The vibratory sounds of Mayan words have the power to activate energy and manifest, like Sanskrit bija sounds. These sounds come from nature and natural laws; the sounds of the cosmos. Sacred sounds, hand gestures and postures are part of Mayan language. Experience their power to transform consciousness and uncover hidden Maya wisdom.
Hidden Messages in Codes of Mayan Glyphs, Saturday July 26, 1:00-5:00pm – $50 Mayan glyphs, carved on stone monuments and painted on ceramics and in codices, contain hidden messages encoding cosmologic laws. To understand these messages, you must attune to Mayan consciousness. In this workshop Hunbatz Men uses a real Maya Codex to reveal mystic codes that can take you into higher dimensions of Maya wisdom. You will explore the meanings and symbols in this mysterious Maya Codex, gain insight into use of rituals to expand consciousness, and learn how Mayan language and glyphs are used for transformation.
Unique opportunity to study with internationally known
indigenous Maya Elder-Shaman-Daykeeper at his first Portland event!
My Connections with Hunbatz Men
I met Elder Hunbatz in 2001 when on a pilgrimage at Chichen Itza led by leaders of indigenous groups from many countries. After reading his first book, Secrets of Mayan Science/Religion, I realized he was the Maya teacher I’d been seeking. When I moved to Merida, capitol city of Yucatan in 2005, I started my study and apprenticeship with him. Through him I became a Maya Solar Initiate, and later took training as a Maya Fire Woman. During my 5 years living in Merida, I assisted Hunbatz in many programs and pilgrimages, and helped develop and write the workbook for Yok’hah Maya. Through studying the Maya calendars with him, I began to understand their incredibly advanced and complex approach to time and cycles. The integrated and holistic world view of the Mayas, and their message about living in harmony with cycles of nature and the cosmos, have continued to inspire and instruct me.
The Maya way of thinking and seeing the world is very different than western materialism. Its mystical understanding of reality as spanning multiple dimensions is similar to principles of quantum physics. Many times it was difficult for me to truly grasp
Hunbatz’ teachings, but when understanding dawned it left me quite astonished. There is such depth in this ancient wisdom, so much intelligence in the unfolding of cosmic patterns that the Mayas knew were reflected on Earth. It has been a great honor and privilege to learn from and work with Elder Hunbatz. I invite everyone to dip into this vast pool of knowledge that expands consciousness and leads to transformation.
