Mayan Dreamlore

I have just come upon an extraordinary bit of knowledge. Back in the 1970s, Barbara Tedlock recorded that daykeepers in Momostenango monitored the progress of the their apprentices’ spiritual development through the use of dream interpretation. Ms. Tedlock never went into details about the specific techniques practiced by the daykeepers, and they have remained unrecorded — until now. As part of the Curandera Project, I quite unexpectedly found myself recording a complete two-hour interview that detailed the process.

Hint: It is all about the tzolk’in day upon which the dream occurs.

If anyone has any interest in this type of knowledge, send me a message and let me know. I have permission to discuss and practice it with the world at large.
