Message of In Lak'ech Series:
"In Lak'ech Ala K’in" - The Mayan principle of Universal Love that is similar to Namaste. As an expression of honoring when greeting each other, this profound realization means "I am another yourself, you are another myself” - "I am you and you are me." The Maya priest-shamans recognized that we are one global human being. It is about dissolving the ego into complete unconditional love; "dissolving until you are 'NOT', then the World enters you."
This series represents the Five Elements of Fire, Earth, Air, Water and Spirit that speak to the mind, body, heart and soul, personally and collectively. They contain within them Mayan Sacred Glyphs as a connective thread through which a message of healing was revealed. This took Tania along a path where discoveries, inspirations and compassion became the guiding lights of her journey. These encoded "Healing Portals" take you on a journey of integration and healing, as you embrace a return to natural harmony. They imbue the beauty and value known by the Ancients into the now. They also provide healing opportunity from the challenging elements that no longer serve us to continue giving power to.
In light of the "Future of Education," there is much to learn from Ancient wisdom - learning from the past in order to flourish in the now. Mother Earth is calling us to remember. The Universe is reminding us to believe. The healing revealed is as unique as the individual experiencing it.
Each painting has been executed over a period of one year each, from first inspiration to completion. They mirror a personal and collective process revealed and executed in divine timing.
“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.”
