Ancient Mayan Pox, a Spiritual Drink
« on: October 28, 2018, 12:36:56 PM »

Ancient Origins

Pox, (pronounced  posh) is an ancient Mayan alcohol drink traditionally prepared by shamans in the mountains of Chiapas in southern Mexico. Now, you can find swanky city bars offering Pox on their cocktail lists, but its effects aren’t for everyone, far from it.

Since 2012, pox has been distributed outside of the Chiapas state, a region first inhabited by hunter gatherers around 7000 BC, to mixologists and ultimately to the lips of hipsters all over North America. The heady brew was created by the Tzotzil Mayans of Chiapas. They famously fought back against the Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century and preserved much of their Mayan culture, which included the drinking of pox in ceremonial rites. The word poxmeans ‘medicine’ or ‘healing,’ poxtaiwanej is a doctor, and  poxna is the Tzotzil house of medicine (pharmacy.)
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
