Overview

This is the extraordinary book that initiated the Harmonic Convergence in August 1987 and awakened the world to the Mayan Calendar. In it, Jose Arguelles revealed three revolutionary ideas: that a great moment of human transformation awaited us as we approached 2012: that there are galactic "seasons" and that the Maya accurately recorded them; and that each person had the capability to connect directly with the energy of a beam emanating from the galactic center that contains the power to awaken the higher mind.

An illustrated treatise on the law governing whole systems. A masterpiece of theoretical integration.

Editorial Reviews

Barbara Hand Clow

"The Mayan Factor teaches us how to connect directly, sensuously, and electromagnetically with the Galactic Synchronization Beam, a time wave that is now triggering a new phase of galactic evolution. Since 1987, we have been exploring the galaxy with our minds, and The Mayan Factor is an essential guide."
Frank Waters
"The Mayan Factor opened up a new audience for the understanding of cyclical time, as opposed to linear time. This is a perspective that we desperately need today. This book serves as a point of entry into a new cosmic consciousness."

    interesting... confusion

    What I was hoping for was a book more of common terms and interesting reading on the fantastic Maya...what I got was so much mumbo-jumbo about time in another dimension of thinking and logic that it made my head spin....not for the average 'seeker' of Mayan lore/knowledge,but,if you're going for a PHD,I'd highly suggest it......
