ESTUDIOS MAYAS / NUEVA ERA "El codigo maya es verdaderamente interesante y extraordinario porque sus afirmaciones se basan en hechos. Por ejemplo, menciona los VEDAS. Los mayas llamamos a ese pueblo 'los BEDZA'. Seguian el antiguo calendario de 360 dias, como mismo hacian los mayas con el calendario Haab, que tambien tiene 360 dias. Le recomiendo que lea este libro." --Hunbatz Men, sacerdote de la tradicion itza maya"Barbara Hand Clow ha escrito el libro definitivo acerca del ano 2012. Este libro es, sin mas, el mejor recurso que existe actualmente. Un ser humano muy sabio ha vertido su corazon, su alma y su mente en las palabras aqui escritas. El codigo maya es un magnifico regalo para todo lector." --Whitley Strieber, autor de Comunion y La claveEl codigo maya constituye una profunda exploracion de la manera en que, a medida que nos aproximamos al final del calendario maya, el tiempo y la conciencia se aceleran y nos proporcionan una nueva comprension del universo. Valiendose de las investigaciones de Carl Johan Calleman, y de las ideas de otros expertos en el calendario maya, Barbara Hand Clow examina 16 400 millones de anos de evolucion y descodifica las pautas creativas de la Tierra, o sea, la conciencia mundial. Estas grandes pautas culminan en 2011 y luego, durante 2012, importantes influencias astrologicas nos inspiraran a alcanzar la unidad y la iluminacion.El codigo maya muestra como los ciclos temporales del calendario coinciden con periodos importantes en los bancos de datos evolutivos de la Tierra y la Galaxia de la Via Lactea. Estas fases de la evolucion convergen durante la etapa final del Calendario, el periodo comprendido entre 1999 y 2011. Tanto la guerra y la territorialidad como la gestion de los recursos y la separacion de la naturaleza son parte de los acontecimientos cotidianos que debemos procesar durante estos escasos anos: son prueba de la espiral del tiempo cada vez mas compacta que estamos experimentando debido a la aceleracion del tiempo. Barbara Hand Clow nos asegura que nuestra propia sanacion personal es el factor mas importante al prepararnos para dar este salto critico en la evolucion humana. Esto se ha dado en llamar "el despertar de la conciencia mundial" .BARBARA HAND CLOW pertenece al consejo internacional de ancianos mayas (Comunidad Indigena Maya), es portadora de las cronicas de los cheroqui y es una maestra de ceremonias y autora de prestigio internacional. Ha escrito otros diez libros, entre los que figuran The Pleiadian Agenda [El plan de las Pleyades], The Mind Chronicles [Cronicas de la mente], Quiron, Alquimia de las nueve dimensiones y Catastrofobia, y mantiene un sitio web de astrologia, en www.handclow2012.com.

In Simply Significant, author Anne K. Chinoda recognizes this paradigm shift will not be easy, noting "It isn't enough to penalize and arrest and condemn; that's like killing the patient with chemotherapy." She gives readers a number of examples, stories, historical references and anecdotes that illustrate the meaning of "significance" while sharing several tools, exercises and tests to help readers examine their own "significance." Finally, at the center of the book is the primary foundation on which it is built: the Seven Keys to Unlocking your Significance.

Originally published in the August 1956 issue of GALAXY, this novelette shows William Tenn (pseudonym for Phillip Klass) at the peak of his career in science fiction. Sardonic, profoundly disillusioned and fashioned in the form of a classic deductive mystery, the work was enormously influential and its central plot premise has been appropriated by others over many decades. Original to science fiction--perhaps to the entire body of literature--is the concept of penal terms served “in escrow”; a prospective felon is permitted to do the crime before committing the crime and for the service is granted on completion a get-out-of-jail free card. (Obviously those wishing to commit murder must serve more time in escrow than prospective thieves or embezzlers.) Tenn’s protagonist commits himself to a long term of penal servitude on a hellish planet in order that he may have the opportunity to wreak revenge upon the business partner who has betrayed him. As one of the relatively few who serve such a severe sentence in advance for a severe crime who survives, he emerges prepared to use his promissory note. What he learns however is that there are many levels of crime, many kinds of betrayal and much which is only apparently real. Written with deadpan, ungiving ferocity, TIME IN ADVANCE shows Tenn at a point where he had perfected his style toward apparent (but only apparent) effortlessness.

Through intimate letters, interviews, and stories, this narrative reveals the impact that a life-changing retreat had on a group of inmates at the highest level maximum-security state prison in Alabama. The 38 participants in the first-ever intensive, silent 10-day program inside the walls of a corrections facility—many serving life sentences without parole—detail the range of their experiences, the depth of their understanding of the Buddha’s teachings gained by direct experience, and their setbacks and successes. During the Vipassana meditation program, they face the past and their miseries and emerge with a sense of peace and purpose. This compelling story shows the capacity for commitment, self-examination, renewal, and hope within a dismal penal system and a wider culture that demonizes prisoners.

Exploring the history of the Wiradjuri people, the conflict of colonization, their mythologies, and their attachment to the land, author Patti Miller reveals both her own story and the position of Aboriginal people in today’s society in this fascinating memoir. For 40,000 years, the Central New South Wales area of Wellington was Aboriginal Wiradjuri land. Following the arrival of white men, it became a penal settlement, a mission station, a gold-mining town, and a farming center with a history of white comfort and black marginalization. In the late 20th century, it was also the subject of the first post-Mabo native title claim, bringing new hope—and controversy—to the area and its people. Patti, a local of the area, explores Australian identity in relation to her beloved but stolen country. Black and white politics, the processes of colonization, family mythologies, generational conflict, and the power of place are evoked as she weaves a story that is very personal and, at the same time, a universal tale of belonging.
