Obama, 2013, Costa Rica, and the Maya Lands of Guatemala
By John Perkins
President Obama’s State of the Union address was a call for change and action. In many respects his words echoed the messages of the indigenous prophecies for these coming times.
I recently returned from teaching workshops for Omega at Blue Spirit in Costa Rica. We delved deep into the hope-filled prophecies around post-2012 and the way indigenous teachings can lead us from the brink of environmental, political, economic and social destruction to a sustainable, just, peaceful, and thriving world.
From the beginning of his first run for President, Obama has emphasized that we must be the agents of change. It is an urgent message that truly reflects the prophecies. We the People must do it. You and I. It is a call for action that has reverberated through the history of democracies. George Washington said it. Lincoln said it. Eisenhower and Kennedy said it.
I am devoting this next year to writing, speaking out, and acting on this subject, culminating in a magical trip to the Maya lands in Guatemala in December 2013. I hope you will join me in making a commitment to doing everything you can to create the type of change we all know is necessary. I also invite you to join me and Mayan shamans, teachers, and elders, on the trip described below:
2013- Birthing the New Era
Realizing the Prophecies
in the Lands of the Maya:
Shapeshifting into Higher Consciousness
John Perkins & Daniel Koupermann
December 13 – 22, 2013
The December 2012 trip celebrated the end of a 5,125 year period. This year, 2013, according to the Maya, is a time to birth into a new era, to elevate ourselves and our communities to higher consciousness.
Soar into the power and mystery of ancient prophecies! Join John Perkins – NY Times bestselling author and leading expert on indigenous cultures and shamanism – Daniel Koupermann – expedition guide and environmentalist – and local Mayan teachers and shamans on this life-changing adventure to the mountains and rain forests of Central America. Apply shapeshifting approaches, elevate yourself to higher states of consciousness, and transform yourself and the world around you.
December 21, 2012 was identified by Mayan astrologers more than a millennium ago as the Great Turning – a time of opportunity to “shapeshift” human societies away from exploitation, brutality, and materialism into cooperation, compassion, and spirituality. John, Daniel, men and women Mayan shamans, and a powerful group of people from 11 countries performed many powerful ceremonies before, during, and after 12/21/12. On this first anniversary, during the 2013 Equinox, we take the journey to another level.
Be part of this select group of travelers who will explore, study, and celebrate together the true birth of a “new” time on our planet.
Indigenous elders and shamans around the world have taught John and Daniel that all life is energy and that personal and global transformation occurs by altering energy. The Maya are known as the Masters of Subtle Energy. On this journey you will:
• Learn how prophecies from cultures around the globe interweave
• Perform fire ceremonies in Tikal and other sacred sites with local shamans
• Learn shapeshifting approaches while embracing the power of exploding volcanoes
• Visit jungles inhabited by jaguars, howler monkeys, and the mysterious coatis
• Empower your personal mission; release barriers that have inhibited you
• Participate in experiential shapeshifting workshops
• Hear the stories and prophecy interpretations of Central and South America elders
• Explore secret inter-dimensional passageways, portals to what the Maya call the “Unseen Universe”
• Stay in magnificent colonial haciendas; feast on delicious local foods
• Roam the streets, markets, and quaint shops of colonial Antigua
• Learn the shamanic art of “Living in Ecstasy” and
• Connect with like-minded people
This is a trip for those of us who want to learn, share unconditional love and life-changing experiences, and shapeshift the world we pass on to future generations. If this is you, we invite you to join us on this life-altering journey!
