Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
Twenty-five years ago, a young musician and painter named Martin Prechtel, a half-blood Native American with a Pueblo Indian upbringing, wandered through the brilliant landscapes of Mexico and Guatemala. Arriving at Santiago Atitlan, a Tzutujil Mayan village, Prechtel met Nicolas Chiviliu Tacaxoy--perhaps the most famous shaman in Tzutujil history--who believed Prechtel was the new student he had asked the gods to provide. For the next thirteen years, Prechtel studied the ancient Tzutujil culture, and became a village chief, and a famous shaman in his own right. Prechtel mixes Mayan myths with a first-person account of his efforts to escape from Guatemala with his family intact during the 1980s civil war that tore the country apart. In this dialogue you will get a privileged and rare glimpse into the complex and spiritually rich life of the Mayan culture, with tales filled with enchantment, danger, passion, and hope. "It is very good to be a coward because it is the only way you can gain courage." (hosted by Michael Toms)
