Workshops & Presentations
Mayan Astrology, Interpreting the 13-Moon Dreamspell Calendar
Mayan astrology is the tool utilized to interpret the 13-moon calendar. Also known as the Dreamspell or Tzolkin, this calendar is based on the human holon. It provides us with 20 kin and 13 tones to create 260 different human archetypes. Each of us will represent an individual character that resides within a 13-day wavespell. Each wavespell helps us to understand our life path. This is a powerful tool in empowering us to better understand ourselves as well as our relationships.

Kava Ceremony with Synopsis of the History, Use, and Preparation of Kava Root
Piper methysticum, or kava, is a medicinal plant that grows in the tropics of Southeast Asia. Originating in the Polynesian Islands (Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu), the kava root is an incredible tool for relaxing the body and clarifying the mind. Traditionally prepared in community, this medicine is a wonderful tool for bringing people together and stimulating art and conversation. The most powerful aspect is its ability to alleviate stress and social angst. For decades, German doctors have been recommending kava root as an alternative medicine for reducing anxiety. Kava is non-addictive, non-psychoactive, and has a reverse tolerance (meaning that as you drink kava you will need to consume less to attain its healing effects). Let's grab a coconut shell and drink one to the spirits! Bula, 'To Life'60 min | Lucid University
