Focus on Mexico – A Learning Adventure

 

Focus On Mexico

In October November 2018, I had the opportunity to experience the Focus on Mexico Learning Adventure in Ajijic Mexico. My wife and I had been in Ajijic in August 2018 when Focus on Mexico had their August gathering and had the opportunity to speak with FOM attendees who were participating in the August 2018 session. The unanimous opinion of those August 2018 FOM attendees was “This is a fantastic program! Do it. For sure.”

We returned to the U.S. and decided I should enroll in the October (25-November 2nd 2018) Focus on Mexico forum. I did just that.

Frankly, I had a blast at Focus on Mexico…met fantastic people…learned more than I could have imagined…and will remember the Focus on Mexico learning adventure for the rest of my life. Honestly, it was priceless for me. Here’s how I really feel about Focus on Mexico:

“Don’t hesitate! Register for Focus on Mexico NOW! This is NOT a seminar. It IS a learning experience – with others like you, exploring the possibilities of relocating to Lakeside. It is also the opportunity to meet new people, begin enduring friendships, meet those in the business of serving your everyday needs (transportation, moving, customs, immigration, legal matters, fitness, pet care, financial considerations, real estate, healthcare, transportation, investment, foreign currency exchange, financial planning, etc.). Don’t worry – you wont be locked in a dark room for a week! On the contrary, FOCUS staff intentionally immerses the group in a variety of  essential forays into the surrounding communities and culture. Expect to Learn. Ask Questions. Laugh. Explore. Wander. Have Fun! Register today – and complete this learning experience! It is an essential investment that will deliver practical and tangible benefits to you and yours for years to come! You will be very glad you did. We are.”

Your hosts Michael Nuschke and his wife Rhonda Newcombe are AMAZING people and fantastic guides.

Templo Expiatorio – Guadalajara, MX

Templo Expiatorio – Guadalajara by Bill Dahl

 

This sacred space in Guadalajara, Mexico left me speechless…It’s beauty, grandeur, architecture and immensity consumed my being and left tears in my eyes…It is a MUST VISIT. Make Guadalajara a  HIGH PRIORITY on your MUST Visit bucket list.

Construction began on this cathedral in 1897 and was completed 75 years later in 1972. It is constructed of hand carved stone and stained glass – that adorns the structure throughout – including –  its’ 100+ foot interior spire soaring into the atmosphere above you.

Don’t overlook that at each hour, there are hand carved characters that emerge from the interior of the structure on the outside (far left of the front main entry) on a moving carousel to music.

Just a fabulously humbling experience to enjoy the privilege to enter this sacred space.

The Sacred Architecture of Central Mexico

Catedral de Guadalajara

Whether you are a religious person or NOT – the architecture of the sacred places in Central Mexico is an inspiring and world class marvel.

On a recent trip, I captured images inside and out of cathedrals in Guadalajara (Catedral Metropolitano, Templo Expiatorio, (and many others), in Ajijic, Chapala, Jocotepec, Jiquipan, Tizpan, San Cristobal and Petatan.

For me, and I am not Catholic, these structures- many of which took 100 years and 3 generations to build – are humbling – and are a testament to the creative genius of the human spirit and the penchant to create unique and special places for the celebration of the God-Man relationship. Needless to say, they memorialize the centrality of religion in Mexican culture.

Dios de los Muertos – Mexico

I visited Jiquilpan, Mexico on Saturday November 3, 2018 as the City was in the midst of celebration Dios de los Muertos. Typically celebrated between October 31 and November 2nd – Jiquilpan has a 4 day celebration from the 1st through the 4th.

A celebration that memorializes the dead. Families and communities celebrate the lives of those lost in this life. It is an incredibly beautiful, colorful and sacred Mexican tradition.

A vastly more purposeful, meaningful, colorful ,and all inclusive celebration that that of the typical American Halloween.

ENJOY!
