What do we do?

Explore, Connect with local people, and Collect fantastic stories

Think this:

discovering water-filled caves in the jungle

exploring little-known Maya ruins

receiving invitations into local homes

enjoying authentic Yucatan food

learning about native medicinal plants

studying with Maya healers and shamen

playing with indigenous kids

building friendships with local people

visiting sacred places

helping Maya familes with basic needs

practicing the Mayan language

and listening to lots of colorful, mysterious, and amazing stories!

What does exploring, connecting, & collecting look like?

Why am I exploring, connecting & collecting?

. . . because they asked me to.

It all started with several elderly Maya gentlemen asking me to learn all I could from him and his people and tell the world about who they are
and what their lives are like.

And so in an effort to honor their request,

we are gathering the stories of the Maya and sharing them here.

Please pass them along.

We are not entirely sure of why the Maya feel it is so important to share their stories with the world.

But we know they feel it is vital.

You can be a link.

Every Maya story has a social media share button at the bottom of the page. 

Help us help them get their stories out to the world.


Muchas Gracias, 

Laura and The Team

He said it was vital. He said happiness itself was at stake...  READ MORE
