This is the extraordinary book that initiated the Harmonic Convergence in August 1987 and awakened the world to the Mayan Calendar. In it, Jose Arguelles revealed three revolutionary ideas: that a great moment of human transformation awaited us as we approached 2012: that there are galactic "seasons" and that the Maya accurately recorded them; and that each person had the capability to connect directly with the energy of a beam emanating from the galactic center that contains the power to awaken the higher mind.
José Argüelles, Ph.D. (1939-2011), worked full time on behalf of the World Thirteen Moon Calendar Change Peace Movement and was president of the Foundation for the Law of Time. He was the author of numerous works, including The Mayan Factor, Earth Ascending, and Surfers of the Zuvuya.
"The Mayan Factor teaches us how to connect directly, sensuously, and electromagnetically with the Galactic Synchronization Beam, a time wave that is now triggering a new phase of galactic evolution. Since 1987, we have been exploring the galaxy with our minds, and The Mayan Factor is an essential guide."
– Barbara Hand Clow, author of The Pleiadian Agenda
"The Mayan Factor opened up a new audience for the understanding of cyclical time, as opposed to linear time. This is a perspective that we desperately need today. This book serves as a point of entry into a new cosmic consciousness."
