Chiapas state tourism Director Manolo Alfonso Pinot: "...I look at this as an opportunity for rebirth. A lot of people know they can fill their body with energy if they come to these exceptional sites."
-Excerpt from an Associated Press article.
Many of us have been researching and thinking about, or have at least heard of, this special time. On the Big Day you need not be alone. Join Gregg Braden, Mayan shaman and Grandfather Hunbatz Men, plus other leading transformational teachers and authors. This will be a marvelous opportunity for you to share your own dreams and observations with both keepers of traditional lineage, and those on the cutting edge of discovery. Perhaps your piece of the puzzle will be the one that brings the picture into better focus for us all...
There will be thought provoking presentations, healing techniques shared, as well as inspiring experiential sightseeing to the incredible Mayan pyramids at Chichen-Itza, Coba, and Ek Balam. This once-in-many-lifetimes conference and global gathering culminates inside the site of Chichen-Itza, one of the "New Seven Wonders of the World." Power Places Tours has special permission to be inside Chichen-Itza, before it is open to the public, for the exact timing of the Winter Solstice on Dec. 21!
No matter what events unfold at this end of an age, ours will be an awe-inspiring gathering that you will surely remember for the rest of your lives. You are invited to join this community of like-minded spiritual seekers from all over the world for this inspiring and healing opportunity to ... "Transform at the Source"!

Itinerary for Main Conference Program: Maya 2012, December 13-22, 2012
|Thursday, Dec. 13
||Departure from U.S. currently planned from Houston with arrival into the Yucatan on the same day. (From other places in the U.S., or internationally, please inquire.) Transfer to your hotel.
|Friday, Dec. 14
||Today and tomorrow are for two days of sightseeing of Mayan ancient power places before the main conference speaking events begin on Dec. 16.
The first two days of this travel program are intended for immersion in the ancient Mayan sites. Later in the week, you will continue your pyramid experience at Ek Balam, a pyramid even larger than Chichen-Itza.
Today's experience is at Chichen-Itza, one of the finest examples of the Mayan pyramids. Experience the magnificent and extensive site of the famous and sacred Mayan city of Chichen-Itza, one of the "New Seven Wonders of the World." Covering an approximate sixty mile area with impressive ancient temples and buildings, see the Kukulcan pyramid, whose architecture is full of symbolism, and also the famous ancient Observatory.
You have the option to stay for the Sound and Light Show if you like. (no extra charge)
|Saturday, Dec. 15
||Full day tour to more ancient sacred Mayan sites. Drive to Coba and Tulum. Tulum is located in a magnificent setting high on bluffs overlooking the sparkling blue turquoise Caribbean Sea.
The main experience today is mystical Coba, with the tallest pyramid in the Yucatan at over 126 feet. The pyramids and buildings are situated on the shores of several lakes and the architecture is unique. Numerous ancient roads led into this huge Mayan city center, one of them over 62 miles long -- the longest in the Mayan world. Climb to the top of one of the pyramids at Coba, as it is well worth the effort. From the top, you can see over the jungle canopy for miles, with an unobstructed view of the temple mounds peeking above the trees. (Group lunch included.)
|Sunday, Dec. 16
||Main conference and events start today. Meeting and presentations all day with a break at mid-day. Reconvene in the afternoon. (Group lunch included.)

|Tuesday, Dec. 18
||Siteseeing today to Ek Balam. Surrounded by jungle, Ek Balam, whose name means "Black Jaguar," is very impressive with its enormous Acropolis-type pyramid. Restoration has only been going on for a few years and not many tourists visit the site. Later today experience the old Mayan village of X'ochen, whose name means the "Center of the Universe." In this traditional Mayan village people maintain the old ways. Driving by the ancient Ceiba tree (The Mayan Tree of Life) at the entrance of the village, one senses being in a different time. Here experience "The 7 Moments of Maya" songs, dances, rituals and ceremonies that are pure Mayan, both ancient and modern.
