Nan Heddi Neale

Nan Heddi Neale has been working to support the exchange of indigenous wisdom alongside her husband, Tata OmeAkaEhekatl Erick González, since 1998. Fluent in Spanish, she has traveled throughout the United States, Guatemala, Canada, and Northern Europe to help organize, facilitate, and interpret for various international Councils and ceremonial gatherings with Mayan and other indigenous elders, as well as non-native peoples from all over the world. Through these experiences, Heddi has been a witness to the incredible healing and inspiration that indigenous ceremonies and knowledge brings to native and non-native people alike, and feels it is so important to healing our Mother Earth that she has dedicated her life to serve this work in whatever way possible.

In 2005, Nan Heddi received her sacred bundle and spiritual mission as an Ajq’ij in the Mayan tradition. She earned a Masters degree in Creation Spirituality from the University of Creation Spirituality/ Naropa University in 1999. Nan Heddi is also Founder and President of Tinamit Junan Uleu- Earth Peoples United; a non-profit dedicated to connecting people to the natural and spiritual worlds, and bridging the wisdom of the Ancient Ones with the world of today, so that the diversity of life can flourish for future generations. In addition, since 2000, in support of Tat Erick she has coordinated healing services and ceremonies given in the U.S. and Canada through Mayan Shamanism.   www.earthpeoplesunited.org 

She currently lives an hour north of Mt Shasta at the developing Deer Mountain Center in California.
