I was both honoured and pleased to be the first Volunteer ESL Teacher with the Maya Foundation In Laakeech this past June at Hacienda Chichen. Upon arrival I was awed by the stunning beauty of the grounds and was happy to learn firsthand how well managed the land was by people who truly care for the environment.

My students, although shy at first, were very eager to learn. Not only were they a pleasure to teach but they helped me practice my Spanish and taught me a few Mayan words and phrases in return. The entire staff at Hacienda Chichen was extremely welcoming and kind and I was made to feel like part of a special extended family. Belisa was so delightful and funny and I can't help but smile and giggle to myself every time I think of her hilarious stories and contagious laughter. I was left with beautiful memories and stories of my own to share back home.

I am so grateful to Dona Beatriz and Dona Venancia for sharing their knowledge of Mayan medicine with me. Learning about the local medicinal plants and the traditional Mayan therapies from more than just books was such a gift and I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity. I was inspired and encouraged to continue my studies and to deepen and expand my own holistic training and practice.

I can't wait to return to my new family and friends and to learn about the exciting new developments the foundation is creating. I hope many more people will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and become a volunteer with the Maya Foundation In Laakeech which helps make a difference in the lives of so many, including my own.

Much love and many blessings to all!
