“We are part of the earth, there is only one unity. That makes us be, live, share, communicate, and commune with her, as living beings, creators, and re creators of life.”

“In Maya thinking, water, the sun, the earth, fire, air, and all the elements of nature are diverse manifestations that are the daily confirmation that the cosmos is a living and sacred being.”

“We believe that no species is superior to another. We are complementary elements, although different from each other; we are all linked in a network, like a spider’s web interwoven with relationships and interactions that are interdependent and complementary.”

“I am you and you are me.”
