The four pillars of the Huehuepahtli – the Great Mexica Medicine
||
by Nicola Dentico Curanderism (or Curanderìa) is a holistic approach to well-being that was used in the pre-Columbian Americas and is still practiced. In fact it is also called "Traditional Mexican Medicine" or "Field Medicine", or even "Traditional folk Medicine".

Xuculem – Mayan Fire Ceremony
||
by Nicola Dentico The fire ceremony is the center of the Mayan Cosmovision. By its realization the Ajq’ij ’(the bearers of the tradition) allow a contact between the visible and the invisible. Fire is not only a means of carrying prayers from the "other side" of reality: it is a real communication tool.
