The Passing of Miss Beatrice Waight

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.
‘Fire Heart The life and Teachings of Miss Beatrice Torres Waight, In Her Own Words’ is a direct transmission from an authentic Maya medicine woman from the rainforest of Belize, Central America. In her unique style and Belizean charm she shares her life story, her teachings, her ceremonies, her cultural traditions, her herbal knowledge and her Maya recipes with the reader in an intimate and endearing way. This book is a portal for you to enter the magical world of the Maya!’
