Holistic Community Sets Sail for Mayan Country in 2012

A holistic community cruise to Mayan Country is being organized for the week of January 8 to 15, 2012. The seven-night adventure will include interactive classes, workshops, parties and more, designed to enhance participants’ sense of connection with themselves, each other, and the higher level of consciousness represented by the ending of the Mayan Calendar. The Norwegian Spirit cruise ship will depart from New Orleans to tour the Western Caribbean with visits to Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico, as well as Belize City, Belize, and Isla Roatan, Honduras. Each of these ports is home to Mayan ruins.

“Our intention is to bring together holistic-minded, high-integrity people who want to grow, play and explore in ways that establish a greater sense of community, and help us stay connected even after we come home.” says Lois Grasso, program director of the nonprofit OxyGenesis Institute for Abundant Health, in Hartford, Connecticut, which is organizing the cruise. The cruise will be the institute’s seventh annual “Transformational Vacational.” Sponsors include Natural Awakenings, Enlightened Professionals, LLC, The Door Opener, Whole Health Expos, and Many Hands Magazine of Northampton, Massachusetts.

In addition to all-inclusive dining and entertainment, the cruise will feature an excursion to Chacchoben Ruins in Costa Maya, as well as a wide variety of interactive and inspiring parties and events related to physical, emotional, and spiritual health, self-empowerment, and consciousness-raising.

Speakers include Dr. Judith Kravitz, who trains Transformational Breath practitioners in 29 countries; Dory Dzinski, publisher of The Door Opener; Catherine Ewing, co-founder of Spirit Matters in Ellington, Connecticut; Pat Hastings, author of Simply a Woman of Faith; and many more.

The all-inclusive cruise and conference package is $997 per person, double occupancy. To save $75, register by July 15, and use the savings code “NaturalNJ.” Those interested in “earning their fare” can become CoCreators by spreading the word.
