Joy Travel Presents: 

May 3 -14, 2012

You are invited on a profound sacred journey to Guatemala and Honduras with Mayan Elders to experience for yourselves the wisdom of the Mayas. This journey will be a living book of miracles that will change your life forever.

In 2003 I was guided to do a journey to Guatemala and Honduras with Tata Alejandro and Grandmother Elizabeth for Harmonic Concordance. Now for 2012 I have been again guided to return and to work with the amazing 2012 energies that are available.

This journey is a great opportunity for you to experience authentic wisdom and understand the shift that is taking place. You will have the opportunity to sit down with the Mayan Wisdom Keepers and ask questions about the Mayan cosmology.

Throughout our journey we will listen to the voices of nature and attune to the essence of the land and all the natural forces including the Stars the Full Moon as well as astronomical and cosmological alignments. We will participate in powerful ceremonies and will invoke the highest for humanity.

The vision of this journey is to better understand Mayan prophecies.
What are the prophecies and what do they mean today

The 2012 energies are about a profound Galactic Alignment that occurs once in 26,000 years. The Galactic Center is the means through which the energies of the Divine Source manifest into our galaxy. This is the time of DESTINY as new divine energies and frequencies are available to us as our Sun comes into alignment with the Center of our Galaxy. What is happening is not only an external change but a deeply spiritual change within us on a cellular level. “As without So within - As within So without.”

The Maya began recording time for this cycle on the Long Count Calendar around August 11, 3114 B.C., and the last recorded date is December 21, 2012 the beginning of a New Dawn for humanity. Many indigenous Elders have predicted we are on the verge of the Great Awakening - A Golden Age of Enlightenment and Peace.

2012 is not a prophecy of "The End" but the beginning of a NEW DREAM. The time of the 13 Baktun and 13 Ahau is the time of the return of our Ancestors and the Men and Women of Wisdom. Who are the Ancestors? Come and find out.

For this is the great human transition that was predicted by our ancestors. The prophecy goes ¨Arise, Everyone Arises, No one will be left behind the rest, together we will see the place from where we have come from." It said "TOGETHER", not just the Mayans.

The living traditions of the Mayans are alive especially in the sacred highland of Guatemala and Honduras. The ancient ones anchored light and divine knowledge from universal sources in all of their monuments. The Ancients Ones knew that a time would come and souls would feel an urge to search for something as they remembered more of who they really were. They knew they would journey far and wide to discover the truth that was left for them. 2012 is here and this is the time and these are the places. Join us for a trip of a life time and experience and explore amazing Temples and Pyramids where each one tells a story of creation.

Grandmother Elizabeth
is an amazing elder who works with Mayan traditional healing ceremonies and the Sacred Fire. She will be with us throughout this journey guiding us and creating amazing Mayan gatherings as well as sharing Mayan prophecies, Star knowledge, Healing, and what 2012 means to the Mayans. Along with Grandmother Elizabeth there will be other Mayan Wisdom Elders who will share their wisdom with us. There will also be time for optional Mayan reading. Most likely we will have the opportunity to meet my friend Grandfather Wakatel Utiw Wandering Wolf, Don Alejandro Perez Oxlaj, a 13-generation Maya Quiche Medicine man and head of the Mayan National Council of Elders of Guatemala. See the story of creation and: True Mayan Elder's Prediction of 2012.

Guatemala is the third largest nation in Central America. Guatemala City is the capital and largest city. It is a land of mountains, rainforests, volcanoes, waterfalls, beautiful lakes, and lush vegetation. Unlike many Latin American countries, Guatemala still has a large indigenous population, the Mayans, who have retained a distinct identity. Deeply rooted in the rural highlands of Guatemala, many
indigenous people speak a Mayan language, follow traditional religious and village customs, and continue a rich tradition in textiles and other crafts.

Tikal means Place of Spirits and it the largest ceremonial center of the Mayan empire. It has over 4,000 pyramids, temples and shrines spread over six square miles deep in the jungle. In the center is the Great Plaza, is Temple I and Temple II that majestically rise above the forest. Temple I is over 229 fee and commonly known as the Temple of the Great Jaguar. It is the tallest monument in the Mayan empire. These temples and upper roof were originally adorned with painted reliefs.  Maya nobility and priests used the temples for ceremonies with the populace watching from the Great Plaza below. Tikal National Park is protected and the 550 kilometer area serves as refuge for thousands of animals and plant species such as the Jaguar and the Celba (the national tree).

Copán Ruinas is a tranquil oasis of ancient culture and sublime nature nestled in the foothills of western Honduras, just 7 miles from the Guatemala border. It is referred to as the most artistically advanced and elaborate of all the Maya cities with it elaborate carved Steles. Some of the Steles appear to have oriental features and the grand Heiroglyphic stairway talks of the ancestors coming from the stars. Copan is also a World Heritage Site and is considered by archeologists to be the cultural center and the Paris, of the Maya world. The Temple of the Sun" and its discovery have helped archaeologists understand how Copan actually looked in its days of glory. There is an amazing underground temple worth exploring. A replica of this temple is at the new museum.

Lake Atitlan is known as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. A natural wonder of crystal blue water surrounded by volcanoes, beautiful valleys and colorful markets. It is one of the deepest lakes in all of Central America. Several Mayan archaeological sites have been found beneath the lake and appear to be from the pre-classic period. Lake Atitlan takes its name from the Mayan word, "atitlan", which translates to, "the place where the rainbow gets its colors".The Mayan culture is very strong and active here, with vibrant handcrafted textiles, crafts and artwork. Like many other indigenous cultures they believe in the Mayan concept that humans have their place and duty in the greater scheme of things and, in order to ensure that the sun is going to cross the sky and the seasons are going to change, it is necessary that the humans do their part.
