In the heart of every bottle of Cihuatán Xaman lies the Sleeping Woman, Mayan goddess and guardian of the Cihuatán valley.
Legend has it that under the veil of night, the Sleeping Woman would look for the brightest star in the sky. This was Xaman, god of the North Star.
The Sleeping Woman would ask Xaman for wisdom and prosperity for the valley and its people. Xaman would then rest atop a sacred Ceiba tree, the Mayan tree of life.
