 Greetings from Maya

“The female pelvis is a powerhouse of energy transformation, the very throne of creation through which energy patterns course and flow. These are dependent on balance within the system. A displaced uterus causes a distortion in the flow of chi, creating chaos where order was meant to reign."

 ~Rosita Arvigo

In Lak’ech
(A Mayan greeting meaning  ‘I am another yourself.’)

Years ago I read the book Sastun: My Apprenticeship with a Maya Healer, By Rosita Arvigo.  It is the biographical story that chronicles the path that led Arvigo and her family to the Central American rainforest of western Belize, where she apprenticed under Don Elijio Panti, the great Mayan Shaman.  It is here that she has continued to live and work for almost twenty years.  After reading the book I had the knowing that I would one day go to Belize, meet Rosita and see the Ixchel Healing Center she had created there.  I tucked that knowing away and continued on with my healing practice and the Isis Scrolls. 

In January, divine timing collided with my dream in a wholly unexpected way.  A client came to see me, and upon leaving, mentioned that he and his girlfriend were heading down to Belize to take part in a spiritual retreat with Rosita.  He mentioned that his girlfriend was learning a technique that focuses on bringing healing to women’s wombs.  I then recalled that the book had mentioned that Don Elijio would sometimes do healing work on women’s uterus, but it wasn’t the main part of what I remembered about the book, as it mostly chronicled her herbal studies with him.  I had no idea anyone was doing womb healing. “How exciting is this?” I thought…I  have seen in my energy work, that the womb is what I would call the “brains” of a woman’s body.  It is her wisdom, and it is the center of her life. How she lives her life is in direct relationship with how open and healthy this center is.  As it turns out Don Elijio also believed that a woman's center is her uterus. "If a woman's uterus is out of balance, so is she," he would say.

I have often been frustrated in my healing practice at my lack of knowing just how to more effectively facilitate bringing forth a woman’s innate healing energy to assist her in opening up this power center. I would say that the “God” within is the mind, and the “Goddess” within is an open heart.  The wisdom to combine the two in balance lies within the womb (or womb space if yours in no longer with you) in a woman and the prostate in a man.  So in my understanding of energy thus far, I would say, the restoration of balance and holy reverence for all life on this planet lies in us opening up these magnificent centers in our bodies.  Well, right then and there I realized that I had to learn this technique. I have never been drawn to learn any formal healing modalities in the past.  I have often thought that my path in this life was to learn how to access my inner knowing and bring forth that which is inside me without outside instruction.   The entire way I work in my personal healing sessions is self taught.  So I admit that I surprised even myself by this sudden joyful burst of desire to learn this work.  It felt like turning my attention to women’s wombs was actually a way for me to ground the entire body of knowledge that I have gained from personally working with so many people over the years, into my own womb.  I am also excited to think that it can open doors and create pathways to women who may never have come for an “energy session” to get the care they need to bring healing to themselves.

So it was with great excitement that I set off in early March to attend the pre-requisite Mayan abdominal massage self-care workshop in Ashland.  The class was a wonderful retreat mixed with a lot of learning.  Rosita in her wisdom has said that anyone wanting to do this work on others must first be working on themselves for several months before she will teach it to them.  I am happy to report that I am signed up to take the professional training with her in September and I am looking forward to bringing this healing to our community.  On page 28 we have included more information about this work as well as brief directions on how to do the massage on your self.  I would like to say however that I would strongly and lovingly recommend taking the self care class, as you will learn so much more in addition to the full guided instructions on the technique. It was such a supportive, informative and nurturing experience.  The next self care class takes place in June in Redding.  As far as I know, the two closest certified practitioners of the Arvigo Massage Method are in Redding and Ashland. Contact information for the class and the practitioners is listed on page 29.   If you know of anyone closer please let us know at the Isis Scrolls and we can share that information with our community.

This new endeavor is filled with the joyful promise of expansion for me, and I am happy to be sharing this update with you and looking forward to the new ways in which I will shortly be able to better serve our community.

In grace and joy,
