To celebrate the Maya Lunar New Year on March 15, 2022, two Maya Timekeepers led a pre-dawn ceremony around the UUCFM fire circle. Marta Matías, a GRACE Project director, and Rosa Etelvina Garcia, a lawyer and Maya Spirit Guide from Guatemala, built the sacred altar, honored the Four Corners (East, South, West, North) and Heaven and Earth, and then called in the 20 Maya Energies or Nahuales. In the Maya Cosmovision, the Lunar Year lasts 260 days and the Solar Year lasts 365 days, and the Nahuales represent all aspects of Life.

The efficacy of vaccines and treatments has significantly reduced Covid’s danger for most of us. As a result, the protocols for campus events have been revised:
Although the Covid risk level will continue to fluctuate, I’m sure all of us hope the worst of the pandemic is behind us. We’ll continue to monitor the risk and change the guidelines as needed to protect our congregation.
