Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Mayan symbol Hunab Ku represents movement and energy—the principle of life itself—in a spiraling design reminiscent of the Eastern yin-yang symbol. As an embodiment of harmony and balance, Hunab Ku invites us into the age of consciousness, which is predicted to begin on December 21, 2012.HUNAB KU prepares us for this cosmic awakening by presenting 77 sacred symbols that create an interactive system for learning, healing, and meditation. Beautifully illustrated and exhaustively researched, this virtual pilgrimage invites us to explore artifacts, earthworks, numerological patterns, and archetypes from diverse traditions the world over: ancient Greece, the Americas, Africa, the British Isles, Babylon, India, and beyond. Hunab Ku waits for you at the book’s center, the threshold between our present age and the coming age of enlightenment. Like runes, tarot, and other pathworking systems, the archetypes herein open doors, create bridges, and shed light on our past and our future. These spiritual signposts are all around us and within, waiting to be interpreted. Let HUNAB KU be your guide.

    Synopsis:

    The Humab Ku glyph, a yin yang-like spiraling symbol of balance and harmony, represents the ancient Mayan god of creation. This god fills us with intelligent energy and ushers us into the Age of Consciousness, which, according to the Mayan calendar, begins on December 21, 2012. HUNAB KU illustrates and describes 77 signs that will help you navigate your way on this journey toward enlightenment. Much like a carot deck, the book inites you to explore, reflect on, and interpret visual symbols drawn from ancient sites, artilacts, and earthworks from around the world. Believers are drawn to these symbols and sites for worship and healing from the stone burial engravings of Sanchi Stupa. India, to the New Grange spirals in Ireland, to First Nations petroglyphs in the United States. These ancient signposts of the Age of Consciousness are already available to us: let HUNAB KU be your guide.
