Jim Conrad's Naturalist Field Work at Hacienda Chichen, Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico

The Maya Foundation In Laakeech and Hacienda Chichen welcomes JIM CONRAD, a respected Naturalist, as a volunteer supporting our green awareness and Mayan ecological programs dedicated to green awareness programs for rural local young adults working at Hacienda Chichen as well as to support the protection of this sustainable destination's private Maya Jungle Reserve and Wildlife.

Jim Conrad started to issue his weekly Naturalist Newsletters from Hacienda Chichen, next to the Maya ruin of Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico, since early November 2009; in his last newsletter, he shared lots of great information about the bird population found at the Hacienda Chichen's Bird Refuge and Wildlife Reserve.

Here is a portion of Jim's writtings:

"BECARD ALONG THE ROAD - When I first hiked into the Hacienda Chichen, I figured I'd be walking that same road many times, and I was right. It's the road I jog each morning just before dawn and also I walk there in early morning and late afternoon when the sun is low, flooding deeply into the scrub from the road, sometimes illuminating things that usually wouldn't be seen. On one such late-afternoon birdwalk I photographed the fast-foraging bird: Rose-throated Becard, PACHYRAMPHUS AGLAIAE, common at forest edges, in open areas and the like, from Mexico to Panama. The Rose-throated Becard male has the rosy throat, making it easy to identify. The Rose-throated Becard female bird is a bit more challenging, with its rusty back, pale underside and broad beak causing it to look like a Myiarchus flycatcher. "
If you are interested in birding and bird-watching, Hacienda Chichen in Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico is one of the best bird-watching destinations in Mexico, check their website www.haciendachichen.com/birding.htm for further reading and details and Bird List.

A Living Universe View from Maya Cosmo-Vision Traditions and Teachings

In an effort to help travelers familiarize themselves with the Maya Cosmo-vision and the subtle Maya holistic understanding of reality, the J-Men (Mayan Senior Wise-man and Mayan Holly Shamans) have granted Yucatan Adventure Eco-Travel Guide an interview to explain the importance of learning to view the universe as a dynamic fabric of ever-changing living energies. A intimate Cosmos of interconnected consciousness unfolding, expanding, and contracting, in a dance of conscious creativeness, where living energies flow from visible to invisible conscious forms, evolving and regenerating every moment.
The Maya Cosmo-vision teachings can awaken our awareness that our universe is a living conscious, a holistic unified continuum of creative spiritual powers manifesting as a vast ocean of amazing life expressions and unfolding realities. You, I, and All that exists are One great manifestation of a Creative Cosmic Consciousness which ancient Maya subtly acknowledge as the Supreme Unnamed God creator of that which exists visible and non-visible, including our Living Universes and beyond.

Read the full version of this highly interesting article about the Mayan wisdom and Maya Cosmo-vision traditions that parallel to Quantum Theory scientists understanding of our Cosmos and the timeless existential quest humans have faced for generations to know "who are we?"... "where are we?"..... "where are we going?" Thus Mastering the Art of Living on our Planet Earth in harmony with all that exists knowing that we are part of a Whole Creative Consciousness inseparable of the Supreme One and all that exists in our amazing Cosmos: A Living Universe.

We invite you to review our Yucatan Adventure Eco-Travel Guide by the Maya Foundation In Laakeech, our NGO sustainable social worker team.

Congratulations to Hacienda Chichen Resort and Yaxkin Spa

Hacienda Chichen Resort and Yaxkin Spa have implemented an active and innovative sustainable eco-cultural and social vision that has gained them International recognition. We congratulate these dedicated companies for their efforts to preserve and promote the Maya Culture and protect the environment, empowering rural indigenous people is key to their success. The way they conduct their hospitality practices, service guests, help the Maya Communities near their property, and protect the flora and fauna within their vast private Maya Jungle Reserve is an example of good stewardship and commitment to improve they way to do business. Their commitment to promote and practice green awareness and social volunteer actions to empower the Maya indigenous people in their Yucatan municipality, has gained them the support and admiration from many respected institutes and International organizations. This April, National Geographic Travel editors selected Hacienda Chichen and Yaxkin Spa to be included in their 2009 Stay List Hotel We Love Guide.

"The hotels on our Stay List 2009 don't just reflect their surroundings-they help define them," says Traveler Senior Editor Sheila Feldman Buckmaster. "What they all have in common is a transcendent vision that goes beyond traditional hotel-keeping. This mindset is what gives these hotels their sense of place. Make no mistake: you'll sense the vibe at once. And after your stay, you'll leave with the kind of insight only soulful places can provide." Quote from National Geographic Traveler Senior Editor, Sheila Buckmaster.

National Geographic Traveler 2009 Stay List criteria and selection process
began by tapping into the collected experiences of veteran journalists, inveterate road warriors, and local experts. They based their nominations on key criteria. Is the hotel engaged with the local community? Does it subscribe to sustainable practices that respect the region? Does it truly capture the spirit of its setting? Further research and detailed questionnaires winnowed hundreds of submissions down to this sweet list of 129 hotels. The properties on their Stay List offer truly unique experiences, and National Geographic editos are excited to highlight them in their April magazine edition as well as their website.

If you have plans to volunteer this summer 2009 and wish to support the Maya Foundation In Laakeech Social Volunteer Programs, you can stay for free at the Hacienda Chichen's Maya Hut, donated by this green boutique hotel to support the social programs the foundation actively conducts in the Maya communities nearby Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico, for detail information about how to apply to the ESL teaching volunteer and other job related volunteer opportunities with free rooming at the Hacienda Chichen, kindly visit the following webpage:
