An Affordable and Fun-filled Vacation That Prepares You for the Changing Times.

The third annual Gatherings of the Peacemakers will be held near Asheville, NC from in May, June, July and August and at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala in September and December of 2010. The gatherings include nights of live conscious music or drumming circles and daily workshops in creating a loving, sustainable and balanced life. Workshops include such subjects as solar and wind energy, organic and community gardens, holistic health, affordable and green building, building your own home, finding your mission in life, creating visionary events, handling your money wisely, staying awake in a sleeping world, Hopi and Mayan prophecies, creating and sustaining loving marriages, and much more. At the Guatemalan gatherings Mayan Elder Tata Pedro Cruz will also be sharing his people’s prophecies and wisdom. Tours of local Mayan sacred sites and traditional villages are also included.

The NC gatherings are held near Asheville at Camp Rockmont and The Big Ivy Campground – both beautiful natural settings. Costs for these gatherings are $145 for a 4-day gathering and $275 for a 7-day. Lodging and meals are extra. The Guatemalan gatherings are at Posada de Santiago Hotel– a beautiful boutique hotel on the shores of Lake Atitlan and adjoining the traditional village of Santiago Atitlan. The fee for a 7-day/6-night gathering is $795 that includes everything except tips and airfare (private rooms, all meals, taxes, programs, tours and transportation to and from the Guatemala City airport). Advance registration is recommended as space is limited.

The gatherings are hosted by Julia and Robert Roskind, authors of Rasta Heart:A Journey into One Love and 2012: The Transformation from the Love of Power to the Power of Love. In the last ten years, their family has organized and hosted over 100 One Love Concerts & Events in Jamaica and on Native American reservations, colleges, prisons, and public venues in the U.S. All these events encourage the audience to claim themselves as "teachers of love" by exercising love and forgiveness in their lives.

“This is not just another outdoor festival,” says Atlanta-based recording artist Laura Reed. “All the music will be 'musical medicine,' carrying messages of love and forgiveness."

"The Gathering is part retreat, part festival and part summer camp for both children and adults,” says event organizer and 10-time author Robert Roskind. “Our goal is to prepare ourselves for the coming decades of change so that we might share this peace and sense of purpose with others.”

“For me, it was definitely a life-changing experience,“ says Florida residence Dora Sharpe, who attended the gathering in 2008. “I returned home with so much renewed optimism and so many ideas.”
