Have you been asking yourself these questions?

– Whose life am I living?
– Is my life fulfilling and full of joy?
– Am I living my own dream or someone else’s dream?
– Is there something I really want to do and did not?
– Is something missing in my life?

For the End of 2012 are you looking to

– Take a Spiritual Adventure?
– Re-connect with your inner shamanic power & bringing your spirit into wholeness
– Travel with Soul Mates to feel safe and experience more?
– Experience the magnificence of your own being and your true nature?
– Celebrate the birth of a new World Vision for 2012-2013?

There are moments in life where we start to question ourselves if all is well! We realize that the years pass by and we are held in a pattern of life that is not really ours. We forgot our dream and our life purpose. This is THE time to come on a Sacred Journey and reconnect your soul, heart, mind and feelings again with the wonders of life itself and find a new orientation for the future. Mother Earth, the Universe and Life Itself will provide you the answers on a Golden Plate and support you on your spiritual path

Have you felt the call to journey to Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, Tiwanaku and Chichen Itza? Now in 2012, at the end of the great Cycle, is the perfect time to answer this call!

 BMSJ invites you to join us on an authentic Sacred Journey along the pathways of ancient civilizations in Peru and Bolivia. Traveling with us, you will start to feel how we are ALL ONE; how we are ONE family on Mother Earth with of feelings of respect, love, compassion and joy for others. That within the heart of every human there is a natural desire for an inner quest for personal freedom and inner peace.
On this special journey, you’ll be meeting local shamans and share their passion for their ancient traditions and culture as we visit world famous sites, designed during those ancient times to align us with divine consciousness. At the end of our Sacred Journey, you will have many new ideas about the direction you’re going in life and about how you can better serve humanity and Mother Earth.

Wonderful Elders and Shamans share their wisdom of the heart with us while we visit temples thousands of years old as they guide us into the soul and galactic dimensions of these sacred places and into the mystery itself. During our travels we will enjoy intensive, colorful ceremonies and rituals, dance, drums and prayer. We will chant and sit in silent meditation with our worldwide brothers and sisters to create the energy for transformation both inside and out.

The world has begun to recognize the Andes as the new spiritual center of the planet. Galactic Star and Sun gates to new dimensions of awareness are opening to us and ancient, hidden knowledge is being activated due to the beginning of the new 10th Pachakuti (cosmic cycle). Andean history is divided into segments of 1000 years, with a transformational era in the middle, every 500 years. We recently passed one of these historical transitions in 1992. It is called Pachakuti “turning of the times.”

These times the Condor calls the Eagle and perhaps you heard this call? Your heart will tell you that you must go, to again be part of the Children of the Sun coming home. This powerful prophecy of the Andes is about the Eagle (North America) and the Condor (South America) coming together as ONE. During our Sacred Re-Union of the Pan-American Elders and tribes in the Yucatan/Mexico in March 2033, Hundreds of us were present to support the first large activation of the Eagle and Condor getting together. It symbolizes the unifying of the Eagle and the Condor within, of the divine Masculine and the divine Feminine, of the outer and the inner world, of the mind and the Heart and of darkness and light. Unify as ONE, in Love. Everywhere in Mexico and South-America you will find legends of the Eagle and Condor flying together, being a symbol of the New Times!

Join us on one in Peru and Bolivia, or with some more time, continue to Mexico. We invite you to some of South America’s most spiritually impressive destinations in only one trip!
