Overview

The Maya are an ancient civilization founded some 4,000 years ago. They were advanced in many ways, including their written languages, their art, their architecture and, of course, their mathematical and astrological systems. These achievements particularly with astrology and their infamous calendar, brought them many insights into the future for both themselves and for the world as a whole. We are now approaching the end of one of their most famous calendar cycles, that of the 5,000-year Fourth Age - the Maya foresaw this time as one of cataclysmic change, a change that many believe heralds the end of the world. However, in this captivating book Gerald Benedict looks in depth into twenty-one of the most famous and culturally relevant prophecies and offers fresh insight into them - and shows that rather than a global apocalypse, 2012 will herald a radical change to our way of life and a profound transformation of our consciousness. These ancient prophecies relate to fascinating topics such as the New Enlightenment, Galactic Synchronization, the Return of a Supreme Being and Changes to the Earth's Magnetic Field.
Challenging us to make real changes to our lives now, they are a wake-up call to us all.

    This straight forward, concise book gives wonderful insight into the Mayan understanding of the universe.

    This book is crisp, clear and to the point. It provides the why's of their calendar by looking at their beliefs and lifestyles. It is easy and enjoyable to read and encourages the reader to think for themselves. Of the many books on Mayan prophecy that I've read - this one is the Best!

    Excellent beginners approach to mayan prophecies

    This book breaks down the basics of Mayan Prophecy into easy to read, short chapters. Very well organized book with good use of sources and information. This book takes a non new age approach to the topic in explaining more of 2012 from a historical point of view.
