Author Laura LaBrie is from the US from Vermont and resides in Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, MX. She came to Mexico on vacation 15 years ago and fell in love with the place. Initially, she and her husband had planned to retire there, but sadly, he passed away. Consequently, she made the move on her own. The small fishing village and its welcoming community played a crucial role in helping her heal. She developed a deep appreciation for the beach, the tranquility, and the nearby jungles.
Back in the US, Laura worked as a music teacher while raising her children. After her children graduated, she decided to reinvent herself and focused more on her passion for writing. She even published her first two books before moving to Mexico. Once in Mexico, her life took a significant turn. With her newfound independence, she delved into researching the culture and traditions of the Maya people. Her interactions with local individuals, particularly a shaman and healer named Don Francisco, led her to discover the rich heritage of the modern Maya, including their ancestral wisdom and magic. She began documenting these extraordinary experiences and stories, leading her to start a blog called “Maya Harmony: Ancient Path to Wellness.”
Laura was a devout Christian for many years but found her beliefs undergoing a profound transformation after connecting with the Maya people. She started to witness remarkable phenomena that many in first-world countries often overlook. A significant part of her current work involves documenting the “supernatural” occurrences she encounters and the stories she hears from local indigenous people, such as remote viewing, intuitive knowing, working with shamanic stones, and encountering jungle spirits and guardians. This journey has opened her mind to the subtle world and how it operates, and she relishes the exploration.
Among her proudest achievements, she cites raising three wonderful children, publishing 12 books, adapting to life in a foreign country, and learning Spanish. She also misses certain aspects of life in the US, particularly good cheddar cheese. Nonetheless, she has embraced a simpler and more fulfilling life, prioritizing experiences, relationships, and self-love.
The passing of her husband was a pivotal moment in her life, propelling her on a path of self-discovery and transformation. She is now living a life that aligns with her true purpose and passions.
In her free time, Laura enjoys spending time at the beach, being on or in the water, practicing yoga and qigong, and exploring nature. She has a passion for collecting crystals and handmade jewelry, working with tarot cards and oracle cards, and burning incense. She also offers spiritual retreats, excursions, books, e-courses, and Maya birth chart readings.
Laura has authored several books and e-courses, and she is currently working on a new project, an e-course focused on leading Cacao ceremonies. Her creative process involves meticulous planning and intense focus, and she aims to complete this project within a month.
