Maria Yraceburu is a diiyin (HolyOne), an Elder, a Wisdomkeeper, a teacher and a traditional healer. Born into a lineage of spirit medicine and trained from early childhood on by her grandfather Apache Juan Ten Bears Yraceburu, her work is centered on the ancient oral traditions of the Apache-tlish diyan teachings and practices of earth.

The pilgrimages I design – choreograph, is actually a better word – are concerned with the spiritual activation and maintenance of sixteen sites. I have prepared my whole life for this moment. The power places I am responsible for each has its own needs of reciprocity--giving and receiving in balance. This is satisfied by a prescribed set of rituals generally performed during pilgrimage. The rituals we conduct are drawn from the sacred mythologies and prophecies that are accessed after physical signs are identified on the earth, within the stars, and/or general human decorum, signifying that, "THE TIME IS NOW."
During each pilgrimage we recount heroic tales of spiritual transformation, set the stage for prophetic fulfillment, and enact rituals that tune us in to the energy and information of the vortex where we gather, and in doing so, come into relationship with it. The ability to choreograph the ceremonies and read the signs has been past down through my family for over 13 generations. The pilgrimages and ceremonies are a way of aligning our lives in time--in the present, as well as with the future and the past. Along the way, I gather with me those who are drawn to the specific time, place or energies. Those who join me bear witness through their experience, to the superb transformational energies that are readily available to all of us.

For me, as diiyin, I will travel to power places over the course of the next several years. As a result, a pattern will be set. Then, I will begin the cycle anew in maintenance work, or guardianship. In the task of up-keeping 5th World Sacred Sites, there are ways of permanently engaging with the 7 Dimensions of Time. EarthActivation Magic Pilgrimages are just that – magic from earth that activates certain energies and events. The land herself shapes us and nurtures us.
