I hold immense hope for Mystic Maya as it carries the invaluable mission of transmitting rare esoteric insights to future generations.

Three out of the four initiates and elders who compose the body of this film have passed on since filming which makes Mystic Maya an incomparable resource to maintain the transmission of their wisdom.

It is my heartfelt desire to share this profound wisdom with you. Join me on this transformative journey, and let the secrets of the past enlighten our present.
