Gilberto Guarcax is a young Ajq'ij (Mayan spiritual guide) and artist (musician and dancer) of Mayan Kaqchikel (Indian Ethnicity from Guatemala). He trained as an artist, along with a group of other young Kaqchikel, in order to investigate, recover and promote the ancestral knowledge of their Mayan roots in music, dance and performing arts. In 2001 they became the Group Sotz'il. He was initiated as Ajq'ij ( Daykeeper) and his function has been to accompany and guide individuals and groups in their experiential processes through consultation with the energies using the sacred bundle and the sacred fire. Now he is part of a Mayan singing group and a multidisciplinary team of researchers who are dedicated to the study, training, and dissemination of art, history and Mayan spirituality.
