Ecoparaiso main characteristic is the richness of the land where it lays. The ecologic reserve Xixim is a place venerated because of its beauty and history; the mayan breath is still present here. That is the reason why we invite everyone around to dive into a path that will take you to an encounter where yesterday and today are unified in one intention: transform through art, guide you to balance between body, mind and spirit and make your staying here a healthy and joyful experience. Focused in a holistic project inside this healing sanctuary, artist VENA2 developed a concept full of magic, culture and health, which pretends to boost the blooming and energetic force within this place. Inspired by art as a form of perfect expression, he prints beauty and ancestral knowledge to each one of his interventions. VENA2 achieves the perfect mixture between natural beauty and handmade things. He reaches an inspiration level which transforms and reflects to create and bring to life, mirroring the evolution of human species and its integration with the spirit. That is how after gazing into nature, the artist gives impression to his admiration for it. In each piece he gets impregnated by nature’s fragrance, by the colors of sunsets, the textures and shades of the jungle, the vitality of the sea, by the warmth of the hearts of the community and mayan culture. Every piece highlights the qualities of each space, with rhythm, color, form and beauty. Nature’s balance is health. In harmony with space there is trascendental information. Every element has a spirit, a medicine which dictates why and what for is our own evolution. Mankind is nature looking for for it’s unity with universe. Myth in mayan culture strengthens the bonds between nature, community and it’s activities, in this way, myth helps spread faith and creed. Ecoparaiso invites you to share the vital energy that inspired VENA2 to write two stories. Is in this two stories where the concept for the art pieces reside. Two stories that produce the feeling that can be found on a cozy home. To write this stories numerology and sacred geometry were studied, as well as nature elements: Earth, wind, fire, water, and ether. Every character, human, animal or vegetal is endemic. Every element was chosen because of its pranic energy, because of the healing and harmonizing capabilities it content. Every piece is based on a story phrase. Zaxim and Carmell, are the main characters of VENA2 mythology. In a journey through imagination they show us how to adapt the harmony of ancient mayan culture to the recent Ecoparaíso community, to share, shine and be abundant in this space, to everyone who has the bliss of enjoy all of its richness. The dawn of illumination The legend says that after dawn, after contemplating Princess Laudel carisma the sound of blowing shells harmonized this village with celestial music. An endless number of heads floating, interlaced themselves with noble recognition. And in the times to come they will make great achievements, living together. “Easy coexistence will bloom the fruit of sincere unity” Sparkling breeze smiled, and rectifying its path found the way to sky. Truth in love. Ahum. Times become one: The path became visible and hope returned from beyond times. In the wonderful constellation where everything heals, the spirit of the princess became present, the scent of flowes remained. Shells looked up to the sky, and the Spirit of Strenght jumped joyful and danced. In every corner of the cenote souls docked to enjoy paradise. Cenzontles singing and laughter could be heard. Legend says iridiscent sparks lighted the white path showing the way back home. Everyone enjoyed the journey. Ahum. The legend says that after dawn… The fountain represents mayan number 6, which symbolizes transformation. The base of the fountain, a triangle spiral represents an energetic system between you, me and it. It also represents a shell, that means the union with eternity. Xixim means shell, it is the essence of Xixim. The mandala carved on the Macedonia stone sphere invites every visitant to enter purification of their spirit, to bloom in unity. After contemplating Princess Laudel carisma the sound of blowing shells harmonized this village with celestial music… In the reception, power animals welcome us. Kinkaju (Potos Flavus), coatí (Nasua narica), spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi paniscus) and virgina opossum (Didelphimorphia) all endemic of this area blow the shells, and make music that opens the gate to be embraced by Princess Laudel. Carved in Macedonia stone, she receives us with the fire of love, permission and protection. She inspires to dream through every element that adorns her: the flowers medicine, the jaguar strength, the serpent knowledge and the butterfly transformation. By the side of Laudel two deers, carved in stone, receive unity information: In’lakesh, a mayan concept that means I’m in you, you’re in me. Deers represent communication with divinity, service. They invite us to keep going to the Lobby, where another mural full of transcendental information impacts us, invites us to its contemplation. An endless number of heads floating, interlaced themselves with noble recognition. And in the times to come they will make great achievements, living together. In the Lobby mural we find Zaxim and her light. Mankind represented by a woman, dives into the deep blooming of consciousness. There, she finds duality: night and day of our being, where heart can be reached and transformed into divinity, traveling through the pleiades star cluster, upwards in an ascendent spiral, guided by dolphins, the messengers in the ocean of eternal existence. “Easy coexistence will bloom the fruit of sincere unity” Invited by Zaxim, at the entrance of the restaurant we find another mural: abundance represented by the tree of life. The path of evolution shows us how nourishment grows from the earth, in perfect communication with the sky, reflecting ourselves. Inside the restaurant, the mural shows two open hands, offering that nourishment, projecting the richness within the heart, the perfection of the diamond, a love offering that land gives to us. Sparkling breeze smiled, and rectifying its path found the way to sky. In the pool area we find a mural, water man. It reflects the vital continuity of the sea, and remind us that every living being is made of water/ Truth in love… In every room, a selection of medicinal flowers native of this region create the perfect enviroment thanks to its light, image and essence. Ahum. That is how Ecoparaíso emphasizes this sacred place, using art pieces to promote unity, to venerate nature and mayan culture.
