(From the Front Flap)

The Maya Calendar, the Aztec Sun Stone, Mixtec codices: these—and many other documents, artifacts, monuments, and stories—speak of an amazing timekeeping system that has been in use in Mesoamerica for thousands of years. This system, still kept alive by Mayan daykeepers, not only explains and encodes the nature of the energies that influence daily life, but also provides the key to understanding human destiny.

Hidden for centuries after the Spanish Conquest, aspects of this system are now coming to the attention of people the world over, often through media hype that sensationalizes ideas related to the “end-date” of the Maya Calendar.

In Manual for the Soul these ideas are put into a larger context as mythological, historical, and technical aspects of this system are explored from the perspective of history and personal biography. Within this work over 1500 significant events in world history are viewed through the lens of this calendrical system, as are the lives of over 1800 prominent figures, from scientists, humanitarians, artists, and mystics, to builders, entertainers, and world leaders.

Designed to shed light on questions such as “Who am I?”, “Why am I here?” and “What is happening on this planet right now?” this work also includes the identification of important evolutionary cycles, helping to explain the significance of December 21st, 2012.

Manual for the Soul may be of particular interest to those who enjoy reading about world history, biography, and/or mythology, and to those for whom the mysteries of Mesoamerican calendars and cultures hold intrigue. It could also be of great value for those interested in connections between body, mind, and spirit.
