Unlocking the Secrets of 2012
Galactic Wisdom From the Ancient Skywatchers

by John Major Jenkins

John Major Jenkins is an independent researcher and teacher who has studied ancient Mayan cosmology and philosophy since the mid-1980s. His is the author of ten books about the Mayan sacred calendar. In his latest work, Unlocking the Secrets of 2012, Jenkins presents the Mayan legacy in three CDs.

The first CD explains the origins of the Mayan cosmology, Mayan creation mythology, what time meant to these ancients, and what shamans did around celestial cycles. CD two reveals Jenkins' own travels in Maya country, what synchronicity is, who the three primary Mayan deities are, the importance of the three galactic centers, and what the coming galactic alignment means. Disc four further explores the galactic centers, explains the mysterious Mayan ball court, and brings understanding of the prophesy of 2012. The series includes guided meditation and shamanic breathing techniques.

Though most people assume that the ancient Mayans predicted the end of the world on December 21, 2012, Jenkins explains that this date signifies the end of an age, not the destruction of the world. According to Jenkins, as we draw nearer to the cosmic alignment of 2012 as foretold by the Maya, we need to understand that changes in consciousness will occur with this new age.

Unlocking the Secrets of 2012 is the most complete information on the Mayan prophesy of 2012 I have found. Jenkins presents the material in a clear manner. His voice is pleasant to listen to as he lectures. Yet it is less like him teaching in a classroom, and more like him sitting in your living room discussing his ideas with a group of eager learners. Highly recommended.
