Synopsis: The year 2012, which, according to the Mayan calendar, will be a year of global upheaval, is rapidly approaching-and interest in the Maya is at an all-time high. Gerald Benedict, who issued a timely warning in The Mayan Prophecies for 2012, now takes a wider look at the Mayan worldview and its relevance for today. Looking beyond doomsday scenarios, he finds a positive message for the 21st century in Mayan concepts of synchronicity, diversity, and unity: These ancient thinkers teach us to understand and embrace our place in the universe as individuals and as members of a community, so that we can fulfill our true potential.

About the Author: Gerald Benedict graduated in Divinity from the University of London, and has a postgraduate diploma from the School of Ecumenical Studies, University of Geneva, and a PhD from the Open University. His main academic interest is comparative religious philosophy, and after teaching religious studies and philosophy in colleges and universities in Britain, he moved to France. He is the author of the Watkins Dictionary of Religions and Secular Faiths and The Mayan Prophecies for 2012, and he has won awards for a novel, several short stories, and radio drama for the BBC World Service.

Book Description Watkins Media. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Maya: 2012: The End of the World, or the Dawn of Enlightenment?, Gerald Benedict, In this book Gerald Benedict takes up a number of the major themes of The Mayan Prophecies for 2012 and explains them more fully. These themes include: * The Maya's notion of Time and its relationship to their knowledge of astronomy, their concepts of synchronicity, diversity and unity, and the implications of these ideas * The Maya's understanding of what it is to be human - how they understood themselves * The powerful relationship between prophecy and evolution In the process of exploring these ideas the author shows how Time, Synchronicity and Prophecy relate to our lives today. The Mayan prophecies make it clear that we are both the prophecy and its fulfilment. The 'end of time' calendars pointing to the Winter equinox of 2012 underwrite the urgency of the message: if we are to solve our many ecological and demographic problems, and if our civilisation is to survive, we must become what we were intended to be. The abiding message of the Mayans is that we must find, understand and embrace our place in the universe as individuals and as members of a community. We need to identify and build upon what we have in common to counter the existing problems of diversity and difference, and we must recognise and respect our spiritual evolution - so that we can grow and fulfil our true potential.
