Nezahualliztli/Tlakatlakualliztli (Fasting Disciplines)
Join us for this new course beginning on Monday Feb 13th, on the ancient Nahua discipline & offering of Fasting
Today fasting is treated like a recently discovered healing methodology, with more & more health benefits being “discovered” in current research studies. However the truth is, fasting is an ancient practice that has evolved with humans all over the globe and integrated into almost every spiritual path
In the ancient Nahua nations, fasting was considered a discipline & an offering. From ritual to political, we see it show up over and over in the symbolic & written codexes. Offering us a much needed ancestral context to this ever growing fad.
In this course we will study & analyze historical & ritual documents, share lived experiences, teachings from elders & communities, and weave it with the symbolism & rituals we already know to offer a decolonial perspective of the discipline of fasting
We will review:
*The ancient Nahua concepts of fasting.
*Brief scientific explanation of the effects and benefits of the nahua fasting.
*Explaining the fasting and offerings according to Florentine codex and primeros memoriales.
*Times and kinds for fasting for different paths.
*Fasting for the Nemontemi & shift of year
Every Monday beginning Feb 13th at 730pm CST. We are intentionally starting this course as a way to ground, orient & focus ourselves for the fasting necessary for the Shift of Year in March.
