The wisdom of ancient, living traditions – kept alive through stories, ceremonies and other practices – can foster our personal and collective development. These lineages of wisdom provide guidance for discovering our deepest purpose and developing a more balanced relationship to each other, our environment and our universe – moving us towards unleashing our collective potential. By reading, listening, and participating we are helping these traditions to grow and evolve as they move beyond the people and places from which they originate. It is with much gratitude and respect that Saq’ Be’ is pleased to present the stories, teachings and wisdom from those that have stepped forward to share them with the world.
