John Major Jenkins on Mayan Cosmology and 2012

Joe Moore presents episode 40 of the Occult Sentinel Podcast:

This is a recording of a talk that John Major Jenkins gave to Evolver Boulder on December 6th 2012. He discussed the trajectory of his work, his key findings, and how he found them. I personally think his work is pioneering and foundational to Mayan studies.

He is the author of a number of books including:

- Maya Cosmogenesis 2012: The True Meaning of the Maya Calendar End-Date
- Galactic Alignment: The Transformation of Consciousness According to Mayan, Egyptian, and Vedic Traditions
- The 2012 Story: The Myths, Fallacies, and Truth Behind the Most Intriguing Date in History
- Pyramid of Fire: The Lost Aztec Codex: Spiritual Ascent at the End of Time

John also helped to translate and edit The Key to the Kalevala by Pekka Ervast.

It was the Con Edison plant blowing up.

Once-in-a-century super-storms and “Frankenstorms” are now annual events, regular occurrences, and quickly growing worse.

Sandy supports what I have been writing and saying for years about this time as one of intense transformation and planetary initiation. I wrote a book and made a film about the Mayan calendar and the year 2012.
