Dec. 11th Update: (note, the number of folks there is probably double that cited on the 6th)

Alexis Ali Parkhurst: Dear family, we need more kitchens, one kitchen is feeding everyone now and they are stressed! Please bring pots and pans and good recipes! We also need filtered water, anyone who has supplies and knowledge for that, we NEED you!

 I'm here at the Gathering in Palenque and we just built one sweatlodge. Going for the second but we need stones for the ceremony, ignition stones you know. If you know anybody around the area that can lend us some, much appreciation. See you.

Seed camp, holding camp whatever you want to call it is started. just outside of Palenque. leaving town you go past km marker 32 maybe 33 and take a left turn. it is a dirt road. im estimating, but you go about 5 km and there is a fork in the road. you take the left turn and go about another 6 or 7km roughly.. the site is on the right side of the road and there is a plantation of a certain palm tree. if you are in Palenque you can take a collectivo straight there i do believe.. the name of the collectivo is ´´ Casa de Hernandez´´ and you want to take the route towards ´´Poncho Villa´´. it costs 15 pesos I think. theses are rough directions but not a hard place to get too really. good luck·
~~~~~~and another set of directions~~~~~~

Here they are Family, now come and find us!!!
By Car:
Head past Pelenque town towards the ruins.
*Drive S on 199 towards Agua Azul.
*Between KL marker 32 and 33 look for rainbow signs on a dirt rd on the left.
Locals know it as the road to Kan Kan Ha.
Take this road aprox
*8KL and look for welcome home gate on the right.
By Collectivo (public van from pelanque):
ask for the Kan Kan Ha truck and get on. Once you turn on to the bumpy dirt road keep your eyes peeled for rainbow signs. Welcome home gate is approx 8Kl in. 15 pesos.

The Rainbow Gathering will be at Palenque and the Other Gathering will be at Chichen Itza.
They are about 130 miles apart. It seems possible to visit both.

The 2012 International Rainbow Gathering will be held in Palenque,
Mexico at the Mayan ruins for the entire month of December.
Posted by Rainbow Hawk: 11/28/2012 Scouting Report:
Sean C. Dowdeswell
I have some information to share for The Gathering of the Tribes: I ran into Joe and Eduardo today in Palenque, they passed me info to give to you all.
The scouts have a possible location decided about half hour from Palenque on a plantation? They are going there now to see if they can set up water pipes and if it will be a good fit for the rainbow.
If it will not be a good fit then they have another site I believe that will be the Bushila Falls area close to the Chiapas/Guatmala border. Nothing has been finalized yet. A couple more days and we should know an exact spot for the gathering.
When you arrive into Palenque, there are 2 locations that are good for your travellers feet to rest. the main area that Joe and Eduardo were saying that a group of rainbows are already staying is approximately 2 km down the road to the way to Palenque ruins and on the right is a red gate. This is a guys place called Jaguars. trade your labor for rest i believe is the case and stay with other rainbows.

EL Jaguar is inside the El Panchan complex next to the gate to enter the archeological park, go inside through don muchos restaurant, and behind a thicket of bamboo is the "front desk" entrance to this camping area .

The other area is El Jardins closer to the ruins.
Both of these places will have information but the first and foremost will be Jaguars place, at least to check out and see whats happening.
I hope this helps all and it will be a pleasure to see you all at the gathering.

Link to El Jardin:
"Our Garden of Eden is located beside the National Park and ancient Maya ruins
of Palenque, Chiapas, Mexico.
By foot or by car you can reach this sacred place of sharing,
remembering and living in tune with nature."
What IS a Rainbow Gathering? To me, it is Woodstock with Amateur Musicians and I am in the band.

Every 11 years the Sun's polararities fluxuate not physically but gravitationally, which sends off a " Coronal Mass Ejection", which many know as a solar storm, in a random direction usually towards planets with a greater mass.

This will be one of the most epic gatherings considering that on December 21st, 2012, the Sun, Earth, Saturn, and Jupiter will be allighned with our solar system directly in the center of the Milkyway Galaxy on one of those eleven years of the coronal mass ejection. Then causing a chain reaction overall projecting massive coronal shrapnel from the Sun directly towards the Earth, considering the mass of the allighnment. Theoretically speaking, in the center of each Galaxy, there is a black hole holding the material makeup of the Galaxy all together. Isn't that exciting. Solar storms create power outages and considering that the gathering will have none, or should have none, we'll be the most content of all, theoretically speaking.
There will be amazonian water falls, wild fruit trees, Mayan elders, and probably many other nomads alienated from the rainbow gathering that have migrated there out of curiosity of this prophisied phenomenon which will probably, like I said, be the most epic gathering in the history of old. And all who have read this , I sincerely encourage you to attend. - Rainbow Hawk.

Mayan Pyramids Gathering:
Two different events will be happening in December 2012.
Chichen Itza will host a
Harmonic Convergence honoring Jose Arguelles. (RIP).
It seemed a shame that Jose will not be able to attend the Event at the End of Time...
Yet, we know nothing about death...
He might attend as a SPIRIT.
THAT would be a treat for the Gatherers on 12/21/2012.
As one of the originators of the Earth Day concept, Arg├╝elles founded the first Whole Earth Festival in 1970, at Davis, California. He was most famous for his leading role in organizing the 1987 Harmonic Convergence event at Mount Shasta and for inventing the Dreamspell calendar, in which 1987 is the year one...
AND 2012 IS YEAR 25.
A traveler tells her story of visiting Chichen Itza at the link above.
A mystery of the "Bearded Man" Sculpture at the ball courts...
Mayan men do not have beards.
So she asks the question... Was the bearded man Jesus?

Synthesis 2012 Festival- A Mayan Calendar Celebration in Chichen Itza and Piste Pueblo

Welcome to the Synthesis 2012 festival, A global gathering, world music festival and spiritual celebration in Piste pueblo and Chichen Itza in the Yucatan. This 2012 festival will occur at the end of the Mayan Calendar on Dec 20th to 23rd this year. We will arrive on the 20th and participate in the global gathering on the Winter Solstice on the 21st. The Synthesis 2012 festival team is working directly with the local Mayan people, event producers in Mexico to produce this historical event.

Imagine yourself here at Chichen Itza in the Yucatan with the Mayans and thousands of others at the dawn of the new age and cycle this December.

I wonder if it would be possible to take a boat from New Orleans?
or would the best travel plan be to drive
from Brownsville, Texas...
Airplane travel seems very expensive... 
Passport Needed?

Villahermosa is the closest airport but may not be the cheapest. Cancun is a bit further away but it is a bit cheaper than Villahermosa, depending on who you fly with. [and close to Chitzen Itza]

Have fun at this and every Rainbow Gathering.
