We announced on Facebook this week our #motorcycle trip #MotoGuat2017 from San Miguel de Allende to Guatemala in February. We’ve ridden much of Mexico, US and Canada by motorcycle and now we’re adding Guatemala to the list.
Motorcycling is one way we satisfy our adventurous side. We can feel the air, smell the land and connect with people more easily than traveling by car. It’s also very meditative. One has to be present to ride.
There is beauty and life all around that if we really plug into it makes an ordinary day extraordinary. The greater life around us is just waiting for us to say yes to going beyond our current frameworks.
What adventure is waiting for you today?

Last week we visited the Pyramid Cañada de la Virgen an Otomi site a half hour outside of San Miguel. This moment of the life force of Beauty in nature was deeply moving to us both.
Extending Holiday Offer into 2017-Awakening Into Beauty Retreat
We are extending our Holiday Offer for the Awakening Into Beauty Retreat because we feel that Beauty is the necessary energy needed at this time in the world.
The response to the Awakening Into Beauty retreat is heartening. Some have said they are so grateful we are doing this because they really need it and San Miguel is an inspirational setting.
In another conversation, as a friend asked “Why would the Beauty Retreat change my life and make it better?”
Here is our answer.
Beauty is not just an idea, it’s a living energy that wants to dance us. It connects us to the greater life we are and that surrounds us and allows possibility to unfold in our lives.
Through the processes we have designed each person will see and feel the ways they have conditioned or edited their connection to beauty. You will liberate your heart, your sacred intelligence to be in creative union with the life force beauty is.
When we have distanced ourselves from beauty our lives begin to shrink. We begin to feel that we are slaves to our lives rather than creators who are free and sovereign.
Through the lens of beauty, you can have curiosity and joy, even in the midst of challenging times. You will leave with a renewed connection to the greater life you so that you can allow new opportunities, relationships and abundance to occur in ways you could not engineer.
At Wisdom Rx, we know this really works because we’re doing this. If beauty and curiosity are not present in our lives real transformative healing is slowed down or doesn’t happen so Come and Transform through Beauty with us.
We wanted to share the launch of a project dear to our hearts that we filmed here in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Many of you know that we have a history as filmmakers and produce what we call Media as Medicine as part of Wisdom Rx.
When we moved to Mexico, we signed up for Spanish lessons with Warren Hardy who’s been teaching Spanish here for almost 30 years. He is a master educator deeply steeped in the cultural differences between Mexico and The United States. Partway into our first class he gave a lecture on “How to Have Good Relations with Mexicans.” We were not only thoroughly impressed with the content but also with Warren’s wonderful capacity to deliver the message.
We are on a sacred journey and have taken each of you with us.
Here’s our report at the midway point. We’ve included a series of photographs for you as there is a wordless beauty that keeps presenting itself.
We’ve traveled just over 1000 miles down into the heart of Chiapas. We have been met with kindness, a little curiosity but overall hospitality. As we write, we are in Palenque. It is the site of an extensive Mayan city abandoned about 1200 years ago.
Nineteen years ago, our friend David Z. was on vacation in southern Colorado with his buddy who he describes as a gray haired, Jewish, neuro-psychologist from Brooklyn. They stayed in a log cabin motel with a bar.
That night, the jukebox stopped playing and his friend asked if he could play the piano and sat down and played boogie-woogie. After one song, the place went wild. As David Z. describes, a Harley rider, with a slicked back pony tail, old fashioned tattoos, wearing an unfashionably tight t-shirt, went outside returning with a whole set of harmonicas and joined in. For David Z. these two guys couldn’t have been more different.
