H'men (Shaman) performing ritual atop Kinich Kak Mo
The Maya retain a clear vision of their ancient way, living in harmony with Nature, keeping time with the rhythms of the seasons. Traditional knowledge is activated by costumbres (customs) handed down from generation to generation -- formulas for living and thinking as a Maya. Costumbres give meaning to life; the sense of being a special people placed at the center of the world. Nature and the ancient ruins remain sacred books, calling softly with the voice of many thousands of years.
