The Mayan Meetings - 2012 Time and Prophecy in the Mesoamerican World

Next week is starting an interesting event in the Mayan World, if you had doubts of apocalypse or the world ending in the 2012, here is the place where those questions will be clarified. The symposium of The Mayan Meetings 2011 topic: 2012 Time and Prophecy in the Mesoamerican World. 

Catastrophes in the last years as Haiti, Chile, China and now Japan between others have make people have more doubts, fears and paranoia about this topic, specially when we are approaching to the year 2012. 

Even though all this cataclysms has caused human disasters and invaluable lost, there is a difference between what the Mayan really wrote in their prophecies, their meaning, and how the earth has been evolving through centuries before human existence causing all this rough changes surrounding us.With the help of modern deciphering in Mayan studies, we will get to a better understanding to it all clarifying myths and false theories about it.

Hope you really can attend to this event

The 2011 Maya Meetings is thrilled to present new and exciting
scholarship on Mesoamerican philosophies of time, calendars, and
prophecy -- concepts that operated at the heart of ancient Aztec and
Maya notions of the universe and humanity’s place within it.
Through archaeology, iconography, and newly deciphered texts, we
will examine how these time concepts exerted a powerful influence
on ancient history, ritualism, and daily life. Today these ancient
ideas -- or misunderstandings of them -- resonate within very
influential “New Age” thinking about the year 2012 and its
significance, making a search for "real" Mesoamerican concepts of
time and prophecy as important as ever.
