Flying to Guatemala or Belize is not the only way to get to The Next Step Seminar from North America. While flying is the fastest way, you could also travel by bus or boat.
Travel by Bus
The trip overland by bus takes about 5 days from Los Angeles to southern Belize and about 4 days to Guatemala City. If you decide to travel by bus, go ahead and make your destination Guatemala City if you will attend the Guatemala seminar or Punta Gorda, Belize if you are attending the Belize seminar.
Travel by Boat
Another option would be to travel by boat to Puerto Barrios or Rio Dulce, Guatemala (the closest ports to both seminars). I’m not an expert on these routes, so best to do some research and see what you can find. There are some private catamarans and sailboats that make the journey from the US regularly, and there are some charter services along the route as well. I believe you’d probably be shipping out via Miami, Florida or Galveston, Texas. If you decide to arrive by boat, let us know so that we can make arrangements to pick you up where you’ll be landing.
The Next Step Seminar is a jumping-off point for people who want to take their concerns about global climate change and industrial civilization collapse to the next level with honest discussion, in-depth planning, and practical guidance on how to prepare for an uncertain future.
Dr. Guy McPherson joins Dwight Carter, Mother Parama, and John Seed Bearer in Guatemala and Belize for a hands-on, practical exploration of what it means to walk away from the industrial economy and how to design and implement a durable lifestyle with respect for the living planet and future generations.
You can read about the seminar on the About page, including the content, a brief discussion of the Core Human Needs, accommodations, and other details.

We thank you for your interest in this seminar — and for caring to know what’s going on behind the thick velvet curtains of the industrial economy and its attendant infinite growth-driven consumer lifestyle.
We hope to see you in May 2014 in Belize or June 2014 in Guatemala. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have. We look forward to taking the next step with you into a future worth living and passing on to future generations.
