Gazing Into The Cosmic Center December 21, 2012
John Major Jenkins

When I think back to how I was introduced to 2012, I remember one warm summer afternoon when I was 12. I had a conversation with my childhood friend, Joe, that foreshadowed my lifework—my deep involvement as an adult with Mayan cosmology, eschatology, and end-date 2012.

Joe showed me a book his dad was reading about the Indians down in Mexico. They were astronomers and had a calendar that was going to end in the year 2011. “December 24, 2011,” Joe said, and that date rang like a beckoning mystery in my mind. I chewed on it. What could it mean? Would time just stop? Would the world blow up? Curious, I looked at the book, a big hardcover with a dark blue dust jacket. I didn’t fully register the author or the title, but 10 years later I had a deep feeling of recognition when I found Frank Water’s book Mexico Mystique. Yes, that was it. (Water’s book used an erroneous calculation and thus called the end-date December 24, 2011, but in truth, it is December 21, 2012.

A chain of thoughts sprang up from that day with Joe, and something was triggered in my own cognitive development. The idea of “philosophy” was planted, the realm of ideas and complex thought, ancient cultures, history, and deep time. And yes, a specific seed-thought was planted, that an Indian calendar from Mexico was going to end during my lifetime.

To get to the root of the significance of 2012, it is important to understand the Maya and their calendar. The ancient Mayan day-keepers visited their mountain shrines and tracked the sacred sequence of days. But they were more than just counters. They were also stargazers, cosmologists, philosophers, and shamans. As shamans, they interacted with multiple dimensions to divine hidden secrets, access healing powers, and see beyond the veil of mundane appearances. Our appreciation of ancient Mayan genius must take into account this mystical domain of human endeavour, which today is often misunderstood and dismissed as primitive or superstitious. As with other New World societies, the Maya engaged in visionary shamanism as a precondition for the formulation of profound cosmologies and metaphysical teachings. Among the Quiche Maya, the visionary shamans were called the nik wak’inel—those who gaze into the cosmic center. According to them, the center of time and space would be revealed when their big calendar cycle came to an end—December 21, 2012.


John Major Jenkins is one of the most well-known independent researchers of the Mayan calendar and the 2012 end date. He reveals what the Maya foresaw for the year 2012.

THE PURPOSE OF THE 2012 TIPPING POINT PROPHETS CONFERENCE VANCOUVER JULY 23-25, 2010 is to explore a radically different, more optimistic interpretation of the Mayan prophecy. This brings together JOSE ARGUELLES, FLORDEMAYO, ANDREW HARVEY, BARBARA MARX HUBBARD, JOHN MAJOR JENKINS, JOHN KIMMEY, JOHN PERKINS, LLYN ROBERTS, DANIEL PINCHBECK, RICHARD TARNAS, and MIGUEL ANGEL VERGARA into the beautiful setting of Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada. Following the conference will be in-depth post-conference workshops JULY 26-27.
