Product description

The Galactic Alignment is a rare astronomical event that brings the solstice sun into alignment with the centre of the Milky Way galaxy every 12960 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. * 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.

Review quote

Back cover copy

ANCIENT HISTORY / ASTRONOMY "Galactic Alignment brings us full circle, into the re-membering and re-cognition of the wisdom of our own ancient origins--re-connecting us with 'whole' consciousness, and initiating us into the 'mystery of mysteries.' A profound work of epochal importance for our historic moment." --Moira Timms, author of Beyond Prophecies and Predictions "Not since Hamlet's Mill drew attention to the connection between mythology and cosmology have I seen a book to equal Galactic Alignment. Building on Jenkins' original and groundbreaking research on the Maya, Galactic Alignment presents a sweeping look at the world's esoteric traditions in terms of a central and powerfully compelling new idea: that times of galactic alignment might also be times of transformation." --Vincent Bridges, coauthor of A Monument to the End of Time "At this critical crossroads of our destiny, this book will encourage us to discover how the same cosmic harmony that inspired the Ancients is as relevant today as it was in our planet's deep past. More than ever we need an inspiring vision that is integrating and universal. This book offers insights into just such a vision." --Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet, author of The Gnostic Circle and The New Way 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 put forth in 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 an ascension stage in the development of human consciousness.
