TREE SAN FRANCISCO EL ALTO
I visited Xela,San Francisco El Alto, Momostenango, and Zunil Guatemala in February and March 2018. The purpose of this trip was to learn about Mayan spirituality. The old customs-“custumbre” are alive and well if you know where to look.
The shamans work in plain sight but you will not see them while driving on the roads or the places tourists hang out. In San Francisco El Alto just off the road and visible as a lone tree is a spectacular gorge filled with shamans at different levels doing their work to help people with their problems.
