Flowering Mountain

"Deep in our bones resides an ancient, singing couple who just won't give up making their beautiful, wild noise. The world won't end if we can find them."-from "Secrets of the Talking Jaguar"



The Smell of Rain on Dust: Grief and Praise

Inspiring hope, solace, and courage in living through our losses, author Martín Prechtel, trained in the Tzutu-jil Maya shamanic tradition, shares profound insights on the relationship between grief and praise— how the inability that many of us have to grieve and weep properly for the dead is deeply linked with the inability to give praise for living.
