Galactic Alignment

The Transformation of Consciousness According to Mayan, Egyptian, and Vedic Traditions

Explores the central role played by the galaxy in both ancient and modern times in the transformation of the human spirit.

• Extends Jenkins' groundbreaking research in Maya Cosmogenesis 2012.

• Reveals how the coming Galactic Alignment of era-2012 promises a renewal of human consciousness.

• Uncovers the galactic vision of Mayan, Egyptian, Greek, and Vedic cosmologies.

The Galactic Alignment is a rare astronomical event that brings the solstice sun into alignment with the center of the Milky Way galaxy every 12,960 years. Building on the discoveries of his book Maya Cosmogenesis 2012, Jenkins demonstrates that the end-date of 2012 does not signal the end of time but rather the beginning of a new stage in the development of human consciousness. He recovers a striking common thread that connects the ancient cosmological insights of the Maya not only to Egyptian thought and Vedic philosophy but also to the diversity of humankind's metaphysical traditions ranging from Celtic sacred topography and Medieval alchemy to the Kabbalah and Islamic astrology. His work presents us with a groundbreaking synthesis of lost wisdom once common to ancient cosmologies that will help us understand the significance of this transformative cosmic milestone.

Galileo’s seminal work, Sidereus Nuncias (Message from the Stars) is now recognized for the paradigm-shattering breakthrough that it was, even though he died a heretic. Reiser’s work, which includes his unpublished book Messages To and From the Galaxy, has yet to be recognized as such. Perhaps someday it will. I will confess that sometimes I feel a deep kinship with these thinkers, along with Johannes Kepler, because the... see more
