Did you study with José Argüelles?


No, I never was his student or met him personally. I was not drawn to follow my mother’s passion that way. I preferred Eden Sky’s everyday teaching tools (she was deeply Jose’s student) and didn’t seem to ever need more.

I’ve met some who studied with him who seemed like zealots, convicted that we should abolish the Gregorian calendar throughout the world. And I have been privileged to touch on the works of many who used Jose’s legacy as an inspiration for a life in service of sharing the Mayan sacred teachings: Aluna Joy Yax’kin and Arielle Spillsbury and Daniel Pinchbeck come immediately to mind, as well as an incredible contingent in the Netherlands of deep Arguellian scholars.
