Journeys of the Spirit® August 17th, 2011 Newsletter
WHAT’S NEW? 11.11.11 – I love the numbers 11.11.11 and have for many years. I’m one of those people who always happen to be looking at the clock when it is precisely that time. So needless to say I am very excited to have the opportunity to celebrate 11.11 on the full moon in the southern Yucatan at one of the most pristine locations in Mexico – Akalki on Lake Bacalar!
Truly it’s one of the most beautiful and perfectly crystal clear lakes, with a soft white sand bottom – this location is heaven on earth for me. Hopefully you will feel the same way because I can only take a limited number of ladies with me on this beautiful journey of Prayer Beads and Altars, November 9-15th?
Ladies, are you coming with me? (Gentlemen, I suggest you join our Palenque Shamanic Portal journey for 2012 in December!)

ANGKOR WAT, CAMBODIA: Unconditional Love in Action – Jan 30-Feb 9th, 2012
Join New Thought Minister Rev. David Ault for a profoundly heart-opening spiritual journey of service to Siem Reap, Cambodia – home of the incredible ancient temples of Angkor Wat. To open oneself deeply, to risk feeling the suffering of others, and to wish to relieve that suffering – is the definition of compassion and the cultivation of the Buddha within us. As Gandhi once said: The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
We’ll have the opportunity to explore the amazing temple complex at Angkor Wat – or at least a part of it! Built in the 12th century, Angkor Wat lies north of the modern town of Siem Reap and was originally Hindu dedicated to the God Vishnu. Around a century later the official religion was changed to Buddhism.
Service is often called unconditional love in action – to give totally of yourself is to be free of ego, 100% present, doing what is needed without judgment. In these moments our heart opens and the truth of who we are comes through – our divine presence.
Volunteer travel is a powerful experience – you risk coming home with a clearer vision of what you want in life, a deeper sense of self-realization, and clarity about who you are and your purpose in life!
Do watch David’s video on the right, it is beautiful! –>
The 2012 trip cost is: $1499.00 USD per person double occupancy. Details for Cambodia 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. That’s right Voluntouring! – a term that describes how individuals can tour some of the most majestic and spiritual sites in the world AND also make a contribution to the locals there.

Setting boundaries is one of the hardest things to do for most people. We are so afraid of what others are going to say and do – that we forget to stand strong in our power and love.
