Workshop: Mayan Dream Weavers of Time:  Solving the Mystery of 2012
Tuesday, January 26 - 10:45 am to 12:00 pm

Vastly contradictory 2012 prophecies are rapidly proliferating on the Internet, at international workshops, and in videos and books. Is the coming era of 2012 the end of time and the destruction of the planet? Or, is it the beginning of a Golden Age, a time of harmony and unity? While December 21, 2012 does correspond to a genuinely important Mayan date, very little information from actual Mayan writings, teachings, and prophecies has been considered. Mayan inscriptions can now be read, but attention is focused instead on pictorial art, which permits the builders of grand theories to bypass the language and literature of the ancient Maya. Today there are more than 7,000,000 speakers of Mayan languages, and there are many practicing Mayan healers and diviners who use the ancient calendar and practice naked-eye astronomy, but few of them have been heard from. Instead, people with little knowledge of indigenous culture or history state that the ancient Maya came from distant stars, or that they are galactic surfers who came to our planet to leave us a set of clues about nature, then disappeared hundreds of years ago.

Goal: To share information on the Mayan calendar and prophecies for 2012.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will learn the basics of Mayan writing, timekeeping, and  astronomy.
  • They will hear translations of Mayan statements about time, calendars, and prophecy from deciphered inscriptions and from indigenous leaders in Guatemala.
  • Participants will learn the basics of Mayan divination, healing, and dream interpretation from teachers who learned to speak K’iche’ Maya and were formally trained and initiated as ajq’ij or daykeepers.
