Excellent introductory reading.

researcher John Major Jenkins goes to the source to find the surprising answers: the original Mayan calendar found in the city of Izapa. 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. Living at the end of a cycle and practices drawn from Mayan spirituality that we can apply in our everyday
lives. Beyond 2012 - transforming our consciousness so we can create and nurture a better world, and more.
