When this week’s guest, Tony Schaefer, and his wife bought their home in Puerto Aventuras in the early 2000’s, he had never heard of paddleboarding. While sitting on the beach one day, Tony saw what appeared to be someone walking on the water. It was a paddleboarder. He says it was love at first sight. He has been passionate about the sport ever since.

 

He ordered a couple of paddleboards and quickly found a friend who shared his enthusiasm for the serene, zen-like feeling that came from being on top of the ocean. When his paddle boarding companion, Tony Johnson was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer, Tony was devastated.

 

In honor of his friend’s voracity to find a cure for his illness, Tony is creating a paddleboarding event to help raise $500,000 for cancer research for the Tony Johnson Memorial at University of Calgary. The event is gaining support from paddleboarders from Calgary, the U.S., and the local Riviera Maya paddleboarding community.  If you are interested in coming to the area to participate in the event and want an authentic Mexican experience, Tony recommends visiting:

 

 

For authentic local foods that support the local economy, Tony recommends getting a taco from one of the many vendors that line the streets. Or, for a scrumptious meal with plenty of green chilies, visit The Pub in Puerto Aventuras and the Naughty Burrito

The energy of Tulum called out to this week’s guest, Kelli Reese.  She had been feeling vibrationally out of alignment in her marriage and 17-year career in Northern California. During a visit to Tulum, Kelli felt the energetic pull of Tulum and the surrounding area. She knew she must take whatever actions necessary to follow her destiny and move to the Riviera Maya.

 

When Kelli’s soul profile in her Akashic Records confirmed her path, she quit her job and followed her heart to Tulum. Kelli currently uses her ability to read a person’s soul history Akashic Records to guide others to their destiny in her Life Coach practice and in her new book, The Destiny Road Map: The Little Guidebook to Face Your Fears, Embrace Change and Follow Your Heart. She also offers online readings.

 

She says she has reconnected to her true self in Tulum and when she needs to find peace away from the frequent construction dust in the area she heads to The Coba Ruins, she visits with a local Shaman for a Mayan cleansing in Temazcal and she submerges her body in the healing waters of the Caribbean waters.
