Overview

"Although time (and not too much of it) will tell, I suspect that José will be honored as one of the most important thinkers in human history."
-Daniel Pinchbeck

What if someone told you that you were living in the wrong time and that the unparalleled catastrophes of the world were largely due to
an erroneous perception of time? Would you believe it?

2012: Biography of a Time Traveler is the authorized biography of José Arguelles, the man who first introduced the date December 21, 2012 into mass consciousness with The Mayan Factor. The initiator of the Harmonic Convergence global peace meditation of 1987, Arguelles is also the founder of the annual Whole Earth Festival (1970) in California, and one of the originators of the Earth Day concept.

Following a life-changing vision at age 14, atop the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, Mexico, Arguelles began a lifelong journey to discover the underlying mathematics and prophecies associated with the Mayan calendar.

2012: Biography of a Time Traveler is an engaging journey through the inner and outer realms of this visionary. As the story unfolds, you will follow Arguelles through many startling synchronicities and transformations of consciousness. Through his epic saga, you may see that every detail of your own life is also precisely designed, down to the most seemingly mundane circumstance.

By uncovering the Mayan codes, Arguelles discovered the telepathic nature of time. He also realized that the human species is living in artificial time, which is disrupting its planetary environment and destroying its civilization.

This book sheds light on the crisis our planet is undergoing today andoffers clues about how we can realign with natural time to make a peaceful transition on December 21, 2012.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
He would almost certainly reject the title, but José Argüelles might justly be called "the Father of 2012." He was, after all, the person who first introduced the hinge date of December 21st, 2012 into mass consciousness. Stephanie Smith's authorized biography of Minnesota-born sage shows, however, that his spirit was percolating long before the revelations of his 1987 book The Mayan Factor. She tracks this New World mystic through his transformations, harmonic convergences, and revelations, all of them leading towards an event of truly cosmic synchronicity. A prophet in our own country?
