Publisher's Summary

Did the ancient Mayans predict that the "world will end" in 2012 - or is that a modern misinterpretation of their true message? Respected author and researcher John Major Jenkins goes to the source to find the surprising answers: the original Mayan calendar found in the city of Izapa.

Learn how the Mayan mystics based their myths and prophecies on a deep understanding of cycles, their beginnings, their endings, and how the impending cycle ending impacts our lives. According to Jenkins, the Mayan legacy offers the following teachings to help us understand 2012:

  • What is the Galactic Alignment? The astronomical phenomenon predicted by the Mayans, and how it will affect us.
  • Izapa as the origin place of the 2012 calendar and the "uncorrupted vision" of the early Mayan skywatchers.
  • Living at the end of a cycle and practices drawn from Mayan spirituality that we can apply in our everyday lives.
  • Beyond 2012 - transforming our consciousness so we can create and nurture a better world, and more.

    Hogwash

    The galactic alignment sounds like the craziest idea of the lot, but actually it's true. Trouble is it happened in 1998...

    Other than that, this is the usual cash-in nonsensical pseudoscience, conflating ideas from the Mayans, the Aztecs and other meso-american cultures and spinning them all into a hotchpotch of what ifs and ooh scary...

    Tripe, from beginning to end. Read Simon Singh's Big Bang for a story of cosmic explosions, real science and above all, truth.
