What is the significance of December 21st 2012

According to western interpretation, December 21st 2012 marks the end of a whole cycle (13 b’aktuns) on the Mayan calendar.

A New Age interpretation of this that date is that it marks the period of transformative events both physical and spiritual that will move humankind into a space of consciousness that is more intuitive, mystical and shamanic.

Whether December 2012 is the end or the beginning, one thing is certain: it will not be just another day in Central America. People from all over the world will come together  to experience a once-in-a-lifetime celebration.

At the Ocean Spirit Fire Temple 2012 Retreat you will spend 5 days creating, preparing and participating in a series of events and ceremonies culminating in a full day ritual in honor the Olmec ancestors – the mother culture of Mesoamerica.

The 2012 Retreat Belize will set into motion the inner awareness and transformation that this New Age will require.  During the retreat you will strengthen your connection yourself, to your community, to the elements, to the ancestors and the Universal energy, preparing yourself for this next phase in the Evolution of the personal and cosmic cycle.

The Journey

Each day of the retreat will reveal a deeper understanding of yourself.  Uncovering spiritual knowledge and tools that we are all blessed with will allow you to shed your former skin.  You will be guided to being in a place of openness, to be able to embrace your authentic self, that self that is ready to be received.

The retreat will include:

- An opening reception with traditional Belizean foods

- A Community Waterfall Cleansing Ritual

- A Sunrise Ceremony with Mayan elders at Cahal Pech Pyramid

- A Private Multi-Faith Ceremony on Sacred Grounds

- Blessing of a Mayan Burial Sight

- Feeding of Olmec Ancestors

- Traditional Drummers

- Individual Private Readings and Divination throughout the week

- The Gatekeepers Marketplace

- Closing Ceremony and Picnic

- And more…
