The Serpent and the Jaguar
Living in Sacred Time
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Everything we do and the way we think is based on a linear conception of time. Our very ideas of life, success, and happiness are tied to a non-cyclical, non-organic paradigm that often works against our own nature and potential. The Maya live in a different world—close to nature, close to their children and their elders, and close to time: the sacred and the secular. It may seem we could not be further removed from the Mayan way of life, but there is a road built centuries ago we can still access. It’s called the Tzolk’in, the sacred ritual calendar the Maya have used since ancient times to guide their personal and spiritual paths.
For the first time, The Serpent and the Jaguar brings you the Tzolk’in and all of its 260 days interpreted in the context of modern life and modern challenges. This book will help you redefine your relationship with sacred, cyclical time in the face of our demanding, stressful schedules operating on linear time.
Included in the book are: The full set of the 260 Energies of the Day of the Tzolk'in Detailed descriptions of the 20 trecenas and their ruling day signs Detailed descriptions of the 13 numbers Introductory sections on the Mayan Calendar, the day signs, trecenas, and the numbers A guide to living with sacred time Mayan Calendar tables to calculate dates offline Original day sign illustrations by New Zealand painter and artist Maree Gifkins (along with the traditional Maya day sign and number glyphs)
