ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A Mayan descendent gave a hands-on lesson this week on the power of labyrinths by helping some Albuquerque charter-school students build one.
Ac-tah is helping students at The International School at Mesa del Sol build a 100-by-100-foot labyrinth made of stones.
Ac-tah is a Mayan walker from the Yucatan peninsula and was brought in especially for this project.
He says the project will teach young people Mayan traditions and values as well as help them explore how labyrinths generate energy.
"That serves to allow people to enter into a state of balance with nature," he said in Spanish translated by an interpreter. "At the same time it makes a neural connection that allows you to work in unity and harmony. And above all it can balance your energy in your body."
Ac-tah says in Mexico this type of labyrinth called the "Mirror of Orion" is being used in at least 50 cities.
