The Complete Idiot's Guide to 2012, by Synthia Andrews and Colin Andrews. On December 21, 2012, the Mayan calendar will complete its thirteenth cycle. According to the Mayan belief system, the world will end. And if you don’t believe the Mayans, you can check in with The Bible Code, The Nostradamus Code, or The Orion Prophecy, all of which predict planet-wide doom. Then again, maybe the year 2012 is just a new opportunity. Could 2012 bring us good things instead of bad? This book gives readers a look at what the Mayan prophecy is all about, what it means to them, and much more. It addresses Mayan predictions about global warming and climate change. The book includes a glossary of terms and symbols, resources for a changing world, and exercises to assist the reader in their journey. The existence of almost 600,000 websites on 2012 indicates a huge fascination with this subject. Synthia Andrews has been studying the Mayan prophecies since the 1980s. She is a respected bodywork practitioner and teacher. She has traveled extensively with her husband, Colin Andrews, the foremost researcher into the global mystery of crop circles, meeting with indigenous elders, New Age channels, and well known researchers discussing their knowledge and theories of the ancient prophecies.
