PALENQUE, MEXICO: A Shamanic Portal to 2012 – Dec 8-13th
EARLY BIRD SPECIAL ENDS SEPT 1st!
Are you looking to…
- Let go of the old paradigms in your life that no longer serve you?
- Integrate the underworld of your psyche, middle kingdom of your life, and upper world of your divine consciousness?
- Celebrate the birth of a new world vision for 2012?
- Experience the powerful Mayan sacred sites of Palenque & Tonina?
- Connect with your instinctual Shamanic energies & totem animal spirit guides?
Join Toltec Shamans Fu-Ding Cheng and Linda Jacobson for a powerful spiritual journey to the heart of the Mayan lands. Our journey is structured on the shamanic vision of the world of the Upper, Middle and Lower Kingdoms. Participants will have the opportunity to experience directly the power, healing and wisdom of each of these three worlds through specific Mayan sacred sites. Through ceremony, rituals, and shamanic exercises, these sites become portals allowing us to enter and tap into their power, for the purpose of healing, transformation, and self-empowerment.
This is especially timely with the advent of 2012, a most auspicious year of the Mayan calendar, and a time of major transformation not only for each of us personally, but also for society and the entire planet. We’ll feed our souls through the play of shamanic energy, the beauty of the architecture and symbology of the Mayan culture, and through the sublime beauty of nature as seen in the turquoise pools of Aqua Azul and the wild and lush jungles around us.
The 2011 trip cost is: $2297.00 USD double occupancy, most meals included (early bird special!) Sign-up by September 1st – the trip price is going up to $2597.00! Details for Palenque here!

Many people are feeling the call to do more in regards to world service and there is a great sense of personal meaning that comes with Voluntouring.

By the end of this call you will have a deeper understanding of how you can feel comfortable in an uncertain and rapidly changing world.

LADIES! Are you fantasizing about a life where you no longer doubt yourself, no longer feel small and insignificant, and no longer stand for other people’s poor behavior towards you? My friend, Deborah Kagan, is offering her “MOJO Makeover” Home Study Course where you’ll acquire strategies, skills, and techniques for reclaiming your confidence, owning your power as a woman, and feel good in your own skin. It’s fabulous ladies and please tell her I sent you!
COSTA RICA – El Silencio Lodge & Spa
Even though it’s still summertime – I always have in the back of my mind a place where I can escape to when the weather turns cold and damp here in Vancouver!
For me, Costa Rica is one of those perfect locations. Hidden in the tropical cloud forest of the highlands is the El Silencio Lodge & Spa – perfect for a wintery escape! Silencio in Spanish means “silence,” and that is what awaits you during your stay in this magical place. Whether you are looking for a relaxation getaway, an immersive retreat for nature lovers or even a wellness retreat – you’ll find it here.
Sixteen upscale cottage suites are interspersed in a tiered layout creating the perfect place to be. Imagine yourself sitting out on your deck with the soothing sounds of the jungle and your favorite book in hand or a relaxing bath in your own outdoor circular whirlpool (every suite has one).
It’s true that you could spend your time just relaxing doing yoga and meditation – but if you’re an activity junkie you’ll need to stay for at least a week to do all this resort has to offer. Start with hiking to breathtaking waterfalls, then try zip lining and white water rafting, and then follow that up with a mellow horseback riding excursion.
After a day of activities, enjoy one of the many wonderful treatments in the hotel’s nature-immersed spa using some of Costa Rica’s best natural healing ingredients. Their menu includes various massages (Swedish and Thai), body wraps, aromatherapy, yoga, and combination treatments: like acupressure with simultaneous deep-breathing exercises. Your body will thank you for sure!
In the calm of the evening enjoy one of their mouth-watering home cooked meals, carefully prepared and served in the lodge’s Las Ventanas Restaurant. All meals are made with local ingredients, and their on-property garden supplies most of the organic herbs and vegetables.
Whatever you do at the El Silencio Lodge & Spa, it will be a reviving experience for every part of your being and sure to give you a fresh outlook. If you are inspired to spend time in a calm, serene environment, please feel free to call me with questions or if you would like me to create another inspiring journey for you.
Blessings & love, Ales Stuna, Director of Custom Travel Sevices.
