Overview

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 - the original Mayan calendar found in the city of Izapa - to find the surprising answers. On Unlocking the Secrets of 2012, listeners will 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; and Living at the end of a cycle - practices drawn from Mayan spirituality that we can apply in our everyday lives
