Description

The Living Maya: Ancient Wisdom in the Era of 2012 by the director of Stetson University's Latin American Studies program Robert Sitler offers the general reader an introduction to the Maya culture and beliefs as these relate to the much publicized 2012 phenomenon. With thirty plus years study and actively working with the Maya people, the author discusses various aspects of Maya cultural traditions in an effort to provide valuable lessons Mayan culture can teach us in this time of transition. Personal anecdotes are interwoven with factual information about the roots of traditional Mayan customs and traditions, Mayan infant care, community building, ties to nature, attitudes toward the elderly, and orientation to spirituality. The author views 2012 as an opportunity for personal growth for all people.
