Format: Hardcover
I have read many books on this subject and I have found many authors tell only part of the story or that they fail to grasp the whole. This book is revealing in that they approach with many of the calendric systems from different Mesoamerican cultures. I believe this system holds great philosophical, intuitive and predictave qualities that are reflected in other cultures such as the I Ching. The calendric systems of Mesoamerica were part of a great system of learning and understanding that drew upon centuries of clinical observation of nature and set into the calendars a grand appreciation and extractive social systems such as dietary regimen, horoscope, psychology and divinitory extrapolations from the calendars. This is only partially exposed in this book but there are others that work well in conjunction such as the Aztec way of healthy eating which is the dietary regimen of the Aztecs in combination with their calendric systems.
