“A Maya/Sufi Journey” by Sue Anne Solem

August 24-27, 2023

Bio: I have been a follower of the sacred Mayan calendar, the Tzolk’in, for over twelve years, ever since I received two Mayan ceremonies in San Juan la Laguna, Guatemala in 2011.  Since then I have been studying Mayan wisdom, have participated in Mayan ceremonies in Guatemala, and have been blessed by a Mayan shaman to carry forth this tradition.  I’ve been studying and writing about the Tzolk’in, and have developed a spiritual practice uniting Mayan and Sufi wisdom.  I have presented several half and full day retreats exploring these wisdom streams, through discourse, contemplation, writing, singing, chanting, and movement.

The Retreat:  Dec. 21, 2012 began a new 5,200 year era in the ancient Mayan calendar, eagerly anticipated for hundreds of years as an era of Balance and Harmony. I will talk about the Sacred Calendar, an ancient guide to life, which is still used by many Mayan people today, as well as people like myself who have learned about this wisdom.  Each day in the Mayan calendar carries with it a certain energy, called a Nawal.  Followers of this calendar believe that if you align yourself with each day’s energy you will be following the Sac Be, or Sacred Road.

Each day of the workshop we’ll begin with a short ceremony honoring the four directions, Heart of Sky and Heart of Earth and Center, and a prayer to the day’s Nawal. We will learn about that day’s energy and align ourselves with it through Sufi and other contemplative practices of reflection, meditation, song, movement, writing, and guided visualizations.

There is a wonderful correspondence between Mayan and Sufi wisdom, and I will weave these wisdom strands together.  Weaving is itself important in both traditions, both literally and metaphorically.  I will weave the 20 Nawales, or Day Energies, with the aspects of divinity known as the “Beautiful Names” of God.
