About the event

Please join us for a four-course meal lovinglingly prepared by Roots Market, while your hosts, Blake Sherlock and Denise Barrios lead you on an adventure of all your senses. With each food course we will lead a discussion of the four bodies--physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual--and how these four work together for optimum health and healing. "Quadricity" is a key element to understanding Maya Spirituality and tradition. In this workshop we will explore this concept by working with the four prime elements—earth, air, fire and water-- and we will explore the Sacred Ceremonies practiced with each of them. We will work with the power of the four B’alameb’ and the four Xoq’ojawab’--the guardians of the four directions, the four elements, the four colors of corn, and the four races— who are the guides and protectors of the present humanity. We will explore the four bodies that shape us —the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies—and how the equilibrium of these four bodies insures our health and wellbeing.  Understanding Quadricity gives us the opportunity to achieve complete healing, as well as understanding the issues and problems of the day from a holistic perspective. This is an important class for anyone interested in finding balance in today’s world, in Holistic healing, sustainability, and Native American earth-based wisdom and spirituality. Limited to 15 participants.

Workshopt taught by Denise Barrios and Blake Sherlock. Denise is an Ajq’ij, or daykeeper, in the Mayan spiritual tradition and the author of  “The Mayan Count of the Days”, a Journal of the Energies of the Sacred Cholq’ij Calendar.  Denise is the daughter of Carlos Barrios, author of "The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of 2012", and she was his translator for many years when they visited the US to share the Mayan world view and the wisdom of the sacred calendar. For many years, I read and used Carlos’ book as a guide to my investigation and understanding of the Mayan world view. When I lived in Antigua in 2019, I had the opportunity to meet Carlos, and his daughter, Denise.  We became great friends, and after her father’s death in 2020, Denise and I were simultaneously inspired to initiate walking the spiritual path of an Ajq’ij.  Together, Denise and I have experienced not only the death of her father, but the rebirth of this spiritual path inside each of us. We are fortunate to be able to accompany each other on our individual paths, and we have had the great fortune to join our paths at times, celebrating fire ceremony together in Tikal only the most recent of our journeys together.
