Hello Colorado! In May, GoldenGyre Productions is bringing to Fort Collins an astounding line-up of speakers, who wil address aspects of the 2012 phenomenon that relate directly to the Maya calendar and Maya teachings. The event will be preceded by interviews with speakers on Duncan Campbell's KGNU "Living Dialogues" program and KRFC's "Spirit of Intention" program with Michelle DesPres. Our event at the Lincoln Center is envisioned as a gathering, bringing everyone together in an interactive experiential environment - unlike anything else! More info and tickets:

Confused about the Galactic Alignment? It's an astronomical fact, but it has nothing to do with our orbit around the Galactic Center:

SPECIAL OFFER. My first major offering in more than five years has just been released. A 3-CD audio program running 3 1/2 hours, Unlocking the Secrets of 2012: Galactic Wisdom from the Ancient Skywatchers is published by Sounds True in Louisville, Colorado. See my special offer - a free DVD with your purchase.

Over 2,000 years ago the early Maya formulated a profound galactic cosmology. They saw that the sun, on the winter solstice, was slowly moving toward the heart of the galaxy. Naturally enough, with their uncorrupted intelligence intact, they suspected that the world would go through a transformation when the solar and the galactic planes aligned. They devised their Long Count calendar to target when the cosmic alignment would maximize, and that time is AD 2012. We are lucky that the brilliant skywatchers who devised the 2012 calendar left carved monuments for us to decode, and that they have survived the decay of centuries, so that we can know exactly what they prophesied and believed about 2012.

Incredibly, at the early Maya site of Izapa in southern Mexico, the galactic cosmology and a profound spiritual teaching are preserved. Izapa speaks to us of the Galactic Alignment in 2012 as a transformative nexus in time, a still-point turnabout, inviting us to reconnect with our cosmic heart and eternal source. With the Divine Wisdom. But how can that be achieved? What is the original, undiluted, prophecy for 2012, divined by those ancient mystics and stargazers who invented the 2012 calendar?

Izapa's carved monuments provide the answers—now, for the first time in two millennia, the secrets of Mayan sacred science have been decoded. Now, we can directly read the 2012 revelation right at its source.

Check out these indispensibly important gateways into the Galactic Alignment, 2012, and Izapa:

In a special edition of December, 2007, The U.S. News and World Report reprinted the New York Times article that featured my work.

COLORADO, December, 2007. After spending almost three months traveling this year, leading tours and speaking at events in the U.S., Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico, I'm doing some local Colorado events. In December I spoke and signed books at Matter Bookstore in Fort Collins (December 4) and the Boulder Bookstore (December 6). Just before the Boulder Bookstore event, I had another great conversation with Duncan Campbell in the KGNU studios (see his program Living Dialogues).

July 1, 2007. My work is featured in a piece on 2012 in the New York Times, Sunday Magazine. This is a long awaited fair and accurate treatment of my work in relation to other writers in the field. Jonathan Zap comments. The piece is also available to view on the New York Times website.

July 7, 2007. The Pyramid of Kukulcan at Chichen Itza is included in the new list of the Seven Wonders of the World. The shadow serpent that appears on the equinox is no doubt the reason. But how many know about the even more profound alignment to the sun and the Pleiades in the zenith that I decoded in my 1998 book Maya Cosmogenesis 2012?
