This is a large and heavily illustrated book published in 2007 by the Guatemalan Mayan Centre in London. Text is in English.
"Enlivened with 102 photographs and 50 figures and maps, Shamans, Witches, and Maya Priests explores the “old ways” that still prevail in the Q’anjob’al, Akatek, and Chuj communities of the remote northwestern Cuchumatán Mountains. Krystyna Deuss provides vivid descriptions and images of the traditional rites and rituals she witnessed during fifteen years of fieldwork. These sacred moments include blood sacrifices for the good of the community and private shamanic rituals—as well as black magic. Deuss also includes a selection of the prayers she recorded."
