Marita and I went into a deep dive into some of the essence of the medicine path. Beyond and behind the visible or the heart-lifting steps, there are many steps that are much more difficult, heartbreaking, challenging, and humbling.
From the deep daily connection to land, the sacred ancient practice of planting seeds, to the radical responsibility and vulnerability, we can find in this exploration we took together some immense and invaluable nuggets of wisdom.
In this replay of our time with Marita One Who Catches Lightning (they/them) we allowed ourselves the space to become the medicine, and remember our relationship to time, creation, and the cosmos through the Mayan calendar.
We explore fascinating subjects like:
Building relationships with the invisible world
Learning authentically from the natural world
Calling the teacher and what it takes to stay with the teacher
Radical responsibility and humility
The power of ancient calendars and their roles in our fate and destiny
The difficult processes and steps into the Medicine Path
The stories of cacao, corn & seeds and their role in our sacred work
The deep teachings of Ancient Cosmology
And the long process of remembering & forgetting...
Our ancestors and who we are are not only in our dreams or in our remembering but we exist as well in the forgetting. Remembering takes time and vision and so all beings have found an example or a system or an observational language they have to relate to the passing of their journey.
This spark inspired the creation of calendars as they relate to time, cycles, the cosmos, and creation as can be seen in the lineages of the Olmeca, Maya, Zapotec, Aztecs, and many more mesoamerican cultures.
Join us in this exploration, let yourself receive and feel, and let those seeds Marita planted for us grow deep and slow... So you can remember how to forget.
