This public workshop will elaborate on the mexica time count and how that applies to our lives. Learn more about the significance of the 20 day signs, the mexica months known as veintenas, the year’s cosmic and the day's terrestrial connections. Workshop will be led by Curandero Healer Juan Carlos Solano Alcocer online from Morelos, Mexico and led in Spanish.
Juan Carlos Solano Alcocer, from a very young age he was interested in the connection with nature and the relationship with human beings. He studied Rural Development Engineering at the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos (UAEM), worked for more than 7 years in communities in the south of the State of Morelos in productive projects but above all to empower their culture and traditions. Upon graduating from the University, he had the opportunity to work on projects for the production, transformation and commercialization of medicinal plants. He also had the opportunity to work at the Maya foundation, where he moved to the southeast of Mexico, to the Maya region where he lived for about 9 months. That was the first fundamental moment, in the decision he made to start the path of medicine.
