Raxnaqil- Balance and Harmony (Humility)
We are all equal, and each person has an important role which must prevail in order to maintain a harmonious balance within the natural order of life. These women were just finishing their ceremony in a much-frequented cave above Lago Atitlan in Guatemala.

(The petitioners payed the traditional respect to the Elder by kissing the back of her hand.)
