2012 and the Ring of Light: When Mankind Finally Grows up


2012 and the Ring of Light:  When Mankind Finally Grows up Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Will 2012 signal the end of the Fourth World-our current world-and the beginning of the Fifth, a world in which all races live in peace and harmony? Author Nancy Shaffron weaves a riveting and hypnotic tapestry from the threads of Hopi and Mayan legends to which she brings thoughtful discussions of catastrophic geological events and mysterious worldwide DNA changes. The Hopi Indian Fifth World legend and speculation about the ancient Mayan calendar's abrupt end at the winter solstice of our year 2012 provide the backdrop as DNA researcher Dr. Jason Towne and his colleague, geologist and parapsychologist Greg Sutherland, seek to understand the changes in their families and the rumblings of Mother Earth. Shaffron's haunting words transport us into dark and ancient Druid ceremonies and paint deeply moving stories of conception and birth and a heart-wrenching scene of loss. We hear the strange music of the ages and the words of the Light Beings as they guide and watch our tiny blue planet struggle through its transformation. We are left to ponder these ancient legends-could the end of Earth and the rebirth of humankind possibly occur at some future winter solstice, perhaps December 21, 2012?
