It is the year 2011 and the comet Raven is entering our solar system. A Mayan woman—an astronomer and teacher, predicts there is more to Raven than first appears. Her former student, Karen Rune, is living in San Francisco. Karen is troubled by strange dreams and sleep-states since the death of her lover. Recalling her teacher’s words about the baktun cycles of the ancient Mayan calendar and the concept of zero, Karen travels with a friend through Mexico in search of her teacher, the apparitions in her dreams and the meaning of Raven.

BAKTUN 2012 tells the story of one woman's spiritual adventure in the Mayan pyramids. As the year 2012 approaches, a San Francisco woman named Karen Rune still grieves for her deceased female lover, and remembers how happily they had lived together in Mexico several years before. Karen finds herself dreaming strange dreams and feels drawn to return to Mexico to seek guidance from a Mayan astronomer and teacher named Yvonne Quextal. When she arrives in Mexico, Karen learns that the coming of the new Mayan age, or baktun, coincides with the coming of the Raven comet that the Mayans call 'crow,' because it announces a new creation. The surprise of BAKTUN 2012 is how this creation comes into being... there is an unexpected twist at the end of this book!
