Description
The first-ever popular "decoding" of the whole grand scheme of ancient Maya spirituality, The Shaman's Secret makes these spiritual teachings explicit and accessible to the general readership and shows how to integrate elements of this spiritual system into daily life. The author specifically examines and explains the Maya spiritual view of the cosmos; their myths and legends; attitudes toward death, suffering and joy; the Path of Beauty; their insights into love, sacrifice and ecstasy, and the attainment of eternal life. He also presents their compelling view of imminent changes in the millennium. Within each chapter, the author includes direct quotes and retellings of the ancient Maya myths, reflects on the encoded messages of sculptures, ruins, ceramics, and paintings, and compares and contrasts this spirituality with the Judeo-Christian spirituality and other world traditions. The Shaman's Secret offers ways to embrace Maya mythic systems to help readers further their own spirituality, and broaden and deepen their experience of spiritual ecstasy.
