The Chiapas Jungle Report

We are on a sacred journey and have taken each of you with us.

Here’s our report at the midway point. We’ve included a series of photographs for you as there is a wordless beauty that keeps presenting itself.

We’ve traveled just over 1000 miles down into the heart of Chiapas. We have been met with kindness, a little curiosity but overall hospitality. As we write, we are in Palenque. It is the site of an extensive Mayan city abandoned about 1200 years ago.

There are more than a dozen local languages in addition to Spanish. The jungle here has relentless life force. When the first temples were discovered they were completely covered by vegetation. No one knows why the builders and all the inhabitants left.

We are awash in life by the jungle and the hearts of all those we encounter. And they are teaching us to be present, to be in the right now of life itself.
