Normally, New Age platforms attract the interest of only the narrowest group of enthusiasts. But this one has been generating wider audiences because it so forcefully underscores the turmoil of the times, as indicated by the stock market plunge,Iran
s nuclear ambitions, the Sept. 11 attacks, global warming and the possibility of a magnetic pole shift and stronger sunspot cycles. To some, the end of theMaya Long Calendar
s roughly 5,000-year cycle portends calamity, or the birth of anew age, or both.The conference
s slogan:
Shift happens.
The gathering of about 300 people from as far away as Holland was launched withthe blessings of a Guatemalan shaman and the scary predictions of Jay Weidner, whose firm, Sacred Mysteries, has sponsored four 2012 events in the last six months.
The greatest crisis in human history is unfolding all around us. It
s not the end of this world, but it
s the end of this age,
he likes to say.
To survive the 21stcentury, we
re going to have to become a sustainable world
people should want toknow how to pound a nail, milk a cow and grow their own food.
Now, a gold rush of
2012ology
is underway. A similar conference in Hollywood thisyear drew an audience of more than 1,000. At least two gatherings are planned for the Los Angeles area in the spring.
A Complete Idiot
s Guide to 2012
was publishedlast month, adding to a burgeoning market of books, CDs and History Channel specials suggesting that the ancient Maya predicted the impending end of the worldas we know it.Director Michael Bay is set to make a movie titled
2012,
based on a novel about multiple earths in parallel universes slated for destruction.Stewart Guthrie, professor emeritus of anthropology at Fordham University, was not surprised by the growing interest in newfangled notions about what those Mayatime keepers might have had in mind as far back as AD 200.
When events leave us feeling powerless and confused, we are more open to new claims about the disorders of the world,
he said.
If people persuade enough others toaccept their answers to this crazy world, it can become a movement, for better or worse.
For example, the Gulf War and the Oklahoma City bombing boosted the popularity of doomsday predictions of famine, earthquakes and social tumult. Some were cobbled from the spooky riddles and images in the Bible
s book of Revelation, which scholars believe was actually written to help early Christians cope with their Roman oppressors.
 
In 1973, when the appearance of Comet Kohoutek coincided with a decision by members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries to announce an oil embargo, the big question was whether the chunk of dirty ice hurtling through spacewould be the most spectacular celestial sight of the century, or wreak social unrest, tidal waves and earthquakes as claimed by some members of the New Age crowd. As it turned out, Kohoutek fizzled and shot past Earth without incident.Then there was the worldwide turn-of-the-century panic in the late 1990s that had corporations spending millions on computer fixes, and people around the worldstocking up on Spam, water, batteries and energy bars.The scene at the 2012 Conference here had the same giddy sense of urgency. Conference co-organizer Sharron Rose said the Maya timeline foretold
the most profoundevent in human history. Everything we know, everything we are, is about to undergo a substantial and radical alteration.
Exactly which direction to take, however, was unclear. The group is strikingly splintered, each focused on his or her own New Age theories: Spiritual teacher Jose Arguelles, for instance, contends that the Maya were prescient space aliens.And author Daniel Pinchbeck describes 2012 as a time for
the return of the Quetzalcoatl,
the mythical feathered serpent of Mesoamerica.Maya researcher John Major Jenkins drew enthusiastic applause from the crowd with a lecture in which he said that Maya hieroglyphics are rife with images of trees and animals that represent the center of the Milky Way galaxy and what he called
the Black Hole of Maya Creation mythology.
That kind of talk irritates Boston University
s William Saturno, a leading authority on the Maya, who did not attend the conference. Saturno dismissed the 2012 movement as
this year
s Nostradamus.
The ancient Maya civilization flourished in southern Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, and lasted nearly 2,000 years from before the time of Jesus until the Spanish conquest in the 16th century. The culture
s achievements includedsoaring pyramids, a highly accurate calendar and intricately carved stone monuments.
I had a guy come into my office once to ask me a question about a specific Maya mural with a depiction of a hanging nest in it,
he recalled.
He claimed it was theexact form of a Maya Black Hole. I said,
Nah, I
m thinking it
s a bird nest.
 
These guys are loony and are making a buck in a market that has to be short-lived,
he added.
And they will continue to do so right up until Dec. 21, 2012, when theMaya calendar simply switches over like an odometer and everything is fine David Stuart, an art historian and Maya glyph expert at the University of Texas at Austin, agreed. He didn
t attend the San Francisco event.
Looking back to the ancient Maya for answers to modern problems,
he said,
is not the best use of our time or brain cells.
But astrological consultant Rick Levine, president and chief wizard of StarIQ.com, said such critics missed the point. People come to an event like this because they are hungry for information,
he said.
You don
t need to be a New Ager to know there
s a lot of weird things going on in theworld.
Sahagun is a Times staff writer.The MayansThe Mayans, especially those who lived from 1200 B.C. to about 800-600 A.D., were simple people who had few possessions. Interestingly, they were also master as
 
tronomers who were in possession of a highly complex and incredibly accurate calendar. St. Germain says they originally came from the Pleiades. Edgar Cayce saidthat they were part of the last survivors of Atlantis who migrated to the Yucatan from Atlantis 30,000 years ago, while that continent was being destroyed.Their calendar, which has recently been decoded, is one of the most accurate wehave ever witnessed. One aspect of their calendar shows that the Earth revolvesaround the sun in 365.2422 days; an accuracy that is just 2 seconds longer thanthe time measured by today's atomic based clocks and sophisticated satellites. Furthermore, how did the Mayans know about the planets Uranus and Neptune withoutthe aid of telescopes thousands of years before Western astronomers discoveredthem? And, to this day, we still don't understand why that civilization suddenlydisappeared into the mist about 800 years ago.More and more we're beginning to understand these people. And the emerging pattern tells us that the Mayans were very different than ourselves. They believed they were living in the fifth age of the sun, with each age being approximately 5128 years. Five of those ages totals 25,640 years, also known as the Great Year or Great Age, which is based upon the wobble of the Earth as it spins on its axis. Each of the smaller ages within the Great Year ended with a cleansing of the planet and civilization had to start over again.Why did it have to start over again? It appears our ancestors were caught up inthe material ways of life, and placed little emphasis on the spiritual. The twoforces were way out of balance. Take a good look around planet Earth today. We're repeating that same pattern again.The final phase of the Mayan calendar began on July 26, 1992 and signifies a moment in human destiny when time will be speeding up quite dramatically. One of the Mayan mandates for this time period is that those who are ready will be blessed and enlightened.What makes the year 2012 more important than the individual 5 ages is that it isalso the end of the Great Age. And this does not include greater cosmic cycleswe don't fully understand at this point in time. As you will see, the channeledinformation I've described below says something big is coming. In the Mayan scheme of things we are already living in the last days of planet Earth as we've known it.The HopisThe Hopi, whose name means "people of peace," are proud and peaceful souls who live a simple life balanced with the spiritual. They continue to farm the earth on their reservation in Arizona. They care for their land with sacredness and love in spite of the pressures being put on them by greedy mining and energy companies who are ripping apart the precious Hopi planting grounds. Some of the younger Hopi have given up hope, while the core Hopi remain faithful to their ancestral heritage.The Black Mesa on which the Hopi reside is kept sacred by their hard work, prayers and ritual and fasting, which keeps their souls in balance and harmony. It continues to be their sacred place until the time of the Great Purification at which time they will be rejoined by the Great Spirit.The Hopi tradition goes back many thousands of years. Within that tradition theyhave kept sacred certain prophesies that would manifest just before a third Great Purification, when the world would shake and when there will be much destruction in order to cleanse the planet of the karmic negativity we have created while serving as its caretakers. Here are some of the signs heralding the coming purification telling us that it is near...Trees everywhere will be dying (it's going on right now).
