THE BIRTH OF A UNIVERSE: THE MAYA SCIENCE OF PREGNANCY
Everything contains life. Everything is interconnected, stars, plants, and people. So begins The Birth of a Universe, a profound exegesis by Apabyan Tew, a K’iche Maya midwife and daykeeper. Apabyan Tew explores the 260-day Maya calendar just as we are bound to the planets that gave birth to that divinatory calendar, our conception, growth, and destiny guided bynawales, the spirits of the days. The Birth of a Universe is a unique book that represents a vision of the world rarely presented by a Maya author.
