For the first time, the Institute for the Study of Birth, Breath, and Death ~ in collaboration with Be Humanitarian offers up an opportunity for both international travel and transformative experiential learning. Co-led by Wilka Roig, founder and president of Fundacion Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Mexico Centro, Tobie Spears, founder/director of Be Humanitarian and Amy Wright Glenn, founder/director of the Institute, participants will engage in group study and meaningful interactions with local birth and death workers.
Our mornings begin with meditation and gentle yoga practice. Our evenings are dedicated to the study and significance of birth and death practices specific to Guatemala.
Day excursions to cultural sites in Antigua, local markets, and Lake Atitlan are also central to our week-long adventure. We will also participate in the powerful breath of social justice work with regard to supporting Be Humanitarian’s educational and nutritional initiatives dedicated to lifting children out of poverty/malnutrition. Be Humanitarian provides thousands of meals a month to individuals living in San Andrés and participants will play an active role in supporting these efforts during part of their stay in Guatemala.
*Participants are asked to read The Guatemala Reader: History, Culture, Politics (The Latin America Readers) prior to our trip.
