I was asked by a friend in Littleton, CO to perform my first Fire Ceremony for Winter Solstice in 2009. I have also held the ceremony for many special events since then, most recently a large ceremony in Blanco, TX on June 5, 2012 for the Venus Transit, something the Maya would certainly have been watching closely. I also have been teaching individuals about their personal Mayan astrology, or “Daykeeping”. I had a regular community class at Ruta Maya coffee shop in Austin in 2005-06. Ever since I first read Dr. Calleman’s work I have been teaching workshops all across Texas.
On October 28, 2011, the day Dr. Calleman had calculated as the end of the Long-count, I helped host a visit of the Waitaha Grandmothers – the elders of the matriarchal Maori tribe of New Zealand. They performed a wonderful ceremony at San Marcos’ Springs, a location archeologists believe has been continually inhabited for at least 13,000 years!
Now we are in the much hyped year of 2012. It is more important than ever to embrace the Mayan Calendar and understand the truth about their prophecies. I have learned much from my mentors, Dr. Calleman and Don Alejandro and from studying the sacred Mayan texts, the Chilam Balam – Jaguar Prophet and Popol Vuh, but also my own experiences watching our collective destiny play out from the unique perspective of a Daykeeper.
