9781591430971: Beyond 2012: Catastrophe or Awakening?: A Complete Guide to End-of-Time Predictions

An illustrated, encyclopedic overview of the prophecies, calendars, and theories that indicate the year 2012 is a threshold of great change for humanity

• Looks at the scientific and anthropological evidence for the rare galactic alignment due to occur in December 2012

• Sifts through the catastrophic theories to show what we might really expect in 2012

In December of 2012 the Mayan Calendar’s Great Cycle will come to an end. Opinion remains divided as to whether apocalyptic scenarios of worldwide destruction or utopian visions of a spiritually renewed humanity will prevail after this key date has passed. What is certain, however, is that a rare galactic alignment will occur, one so unique that it is found at the core of many wisdom traditions from around the globe.

Geoff Stray has been collecting the vast amounts of data relating to the 2012 phenomena since 1982. Far from confining his research to the Maya, who provide the most prominent predictions indicating this date will herald significant changes for humanity, he has studied the prophetic traditions of other cultures--including the Tibetan, Chinese, Jewish, Ethiopian, and tribal cultures from around the globe--to show the kind of convergence of cosmic purposes happening along a number of parallel tracks. This book offers an extensive study of many modern theories, including Terence McKenna’s timewave zero and Maurice Cotterell’s sunspot research as well as anomalous phenomena such as near death experiences and crop circles. Sifting through all the scientific research and speculation that the year 2012 has inspired, Geoff Stray provides an encyclopedic look at what we might really expect on this pivotal date.

From the Back Cover:

MAYAN STUDIES / NEW AGE

“If there is one book you need to read about 2012, it is this one. Don’t believe a thing until you do. The facts, the fiction, and the reality--it’s all here, Made easy. Essential reading.”
--Andrew Collins, author of From the Ashes of Angels and Gods of Eden

“I support and encourage serious discussion of 2012, and the current level of the discussion--in quality and cogency--must be raised. Beyond 2012 does this with admirable comprehension and comprehensiveness, inviting us all to engage with this topic in deeper ways.”
--John Major Jenkins, author of Tzolkin, Maya Cosmogenesis 2012, and Galactic Alignment
