Our good friend James Bauckman made this video at our Mayan Gateway Ceremony for the Mayan New Dawn on December 21, 2012. Enjoy!
Jim’s talk in Bellingham – Jan 23, 2012
A lovely group joined us for a talk with Mayan initiate James (Jim) Papp at the Spiritual Living Center in Bellingham, WA. Jim shared what we can learn from the Maya to help co-create a more harmonious world. The Mayan message for humanity remains vitally important after December 21st, 2012, as we transition into a new era the Maya call the Fifth Sun.
Jim shared Mayan philosophy and practices that can assist in self-realization and the advancement of humankind in coexistence with nature. He also shed light on the initial 52 years of the new era and what it means for us in this time of great change.
Update Dec. 22, 2012
~ Yes, we are still here! By the way, in case you don’t know it by now, the Mayans never said the world would end December 21, 2012…
Thank you to all the lovely beings who joined our group of 99 people gathered in Bellingham, Washington to celebrate the shift from the 4th Sun Mayan calendar cycle end date of December 21, 2012 to the New Era of the 5th Sun. It was an amazing, uplifting, prayerful, celebratory release of the old and stepping together into the Light of Love and Peace enveloping the planet. We are humbled to share the teachings of the Maya and are so grateful to the elders and teachers who guide us…Mary, Elder Hunbatz Men, Pedro, Diana, Susanna…and more. We thank you.
We feel blessed to connect with so many awesome people, in Bellingham and Seattle, and around the world who are doing such good work…working in the Light…through art, teaching, healing, or, most importantly, being authentic loving spirits.
BIG thanks to Saphir Lewis ~ www.festivalfire.com~ for incredible event planning and execution and for working as our new part-time assistant. We could not have done it without you!
Thank you to James Bauckman, Owner of Revolutionary Productions ~ www.revprovideo.com ~ and the fabulous crew…Tad, Gary, Tenzing and Heather…for filming and live stream. Edited video will be posted online soon.
Thank you to co-host Eric Clarke and Julie Carpenter Clarke for purchasing a native oak tree, working with the City of Bellingham Parks Department, and planting the tree, along with our despacho (community prayer bundle), on Dec. 22 in Fairhaven Park.
Planning and executing the event and live streaming project along with managing Jim’s radio interviews (and more…including a home remodel in process…and…oh, yes, trying to get ready for the holidays too) was very rewarding but a lot of work.
Peace and Blessings to all!
Love, Jim and Lisa

Preparation in the days leading up to December 21, 2012:
The December 21 – 22, 2012 Mayan gateway approaches! Let us prepare for passing through this portal of profound personal and planetary potential. Our state of mind and what we carry with us in our hearts will influence the experience of our passage into this new era.
It is time to leave behind what no longer serves us, whether in the form of ideas, attitudes, or actions. And it is time for that which exalts or honors us to be anchored firmly in our hearts. Let’s prepare for the birth of the new world that the Maya call the Fifth Sun. You may find the following approach helpful leading up to the 21st. This is what we are doing so that we can be as present as possible.
Gently, bravely, examine your life – your ideas, attitudes, and actions, and your reactions to them. Consider it a methodical, non-judging meditation on the inventory of your life. Non-judgment is critical in being able to see everything clearly.
Take some quiet time each day just to be with yourself, perhaps sitting quietly or walking alone. Observe everything you think and feel. Notice that what really moves you – what makes you grateful – and take it with you. Notice what causes you anxiety or distress and set your reaction to it down on the ground. Give it to Mother Earth for She accepts everything from us, unconditionally. Thank Mother Earth.
Our challenge is to courageously look ourselves in the eye and be honest about what we see – for what is at stake is nothing less than the life we truly want to live. When we truly see, without deceiving ourselves, the choices become clear.
The gateway approaches! May we arrive there with clear minds and gentle hearts, having affirmed that which we truly care for, to anchor it firmly within us where the winds of change cannot shake it loose.
The birth of the new world is also the birth of the new you. You are the portal. May the blessings be!
Love, Jim and Lisa Papp
