Some of you may remember that in November 2009 I traveled to Belize in Central America and spent 8 days studying Mayan Abdominal Therapy with a traditional Mayan Healer Miss Beatrice Waight. It is great sadness to let you know that Miss Beatrice passed away late last year. She has left a legacy behind her and many westerners had the privilege of studying with her during her life. A book of her life and art has now been released to celebrate her achievements and continue to spread some of her gifts and knowledge.
I have been lucky enough to have been included in this book, in a section where her students could write and tell a story of their experiences of Miss Beatrice. It is a great honor to have known this woman, to share her home, and to be able to share my experiences of her in this book.
