Modern technology is opening new ways for us to learn from and nourish living lineages. A couple of years ago, Jim Jenner and Brenda Bynum joined us in Santa Fe for a consultation with Maya Ajq’ij Lina Barrios. Their immediate connection with the tradition brought Brenda back here from her home in New York to participate in sessions, workshops and a ceremony in July of last year. This quick connection suddenly found Jim and Brenda on a journey to Guatemala this past January, applying their film making skills while traveling with Denise, Lina, Carlos and others, filming elders, ceremonies and sacred locations. This footage is being compiled to make use of the medium to further tell the stories of the living Maya lineage, so that we may learn, transform, and return to nourish the roots of the tradition. They are hard at work compiling these videos in their spare time, putting forth a tremendous volunteer effort to make this content available. We are excited about the potential that is being unleashed by filming lineages in an appropriate manner.
While this is being compiled, we are able to share some images of their journey in the gallery below. More to come soon…
