In this week’s episode of the Curiosity & Consciousness podcast I’m joined by Solveig Barrios.
Solveig comes from a family line of spiritual leaders and is the founder of The Mayan Wisdom Project. Daughter of the renowned Maya Elder Carlos Barrios, Solveig began to learn about the Maya Geo-Cosmovision at a very early age.
She is currently on the path to becoming an Ajq’ij (Mayan spiritual leader) herself, and with the guidance that was left to her by her dad and her family, Solveig’s knowledge of the Maya wisdom is vast. She started her journey as a child, and ever since she has had the opportunity to travel, share and learn from different spiritual leaders from all over Guatemala.
This is a fascinating conversation with Solveig who shares about our four bodies – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. She goes into detail on each body explaining what they relate to, and also talks about the importance of having a balanced relationship between all bodies.
She also explains a little on who the Mayan’s were and why they were considered a very advanced civilisation. She mentions how they were great astronomers, mathematicians and scientists, but how they also managed to find a balance between science, nature, spirituality and humanity.
This episode is full of wisdom for all of us, especially in relation to our four bodies and how in Western civilisation there has been an overemphasis on the physical and mental body (much to our own detriment!). Solveig shares a powerful ancient practice that can support us in gaining a vast perspective on our life, and why we chose the path we chose!
