Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book comes with dozens of illustrations, references, and a wide range of information from mundane astrology to the current obsession with mono-atomic gold, which has been compared to the elixir of eternal life. I thoroughly recommend this book to any thoughtful and dedicated researcher of the facts, not the fiction, of the 2012 phenomenon." (Leslely Crossingham, New Dawn, Mar/Apr 2009)

"To prove her point, the author draws upon mythology, archetypes, and symbols from a variety of other ancient belief systems. . . . 2012 and the Galactic Center is very well written and extremely powerful." (TCM Reviews, Sept 2008)

" . . . this is a great book for those who wish to accelerate their personal growth as 2012 approaches . .  I applaud this author for her thoughtful input about how we can embrace this time of great opportunity for personal growth." (Jeb Schlackman, reviewer, Sept 2008)

"Whereas thinkers in the Christian (and Islamic) world have distorted this story to reinforce patriarchal dominance, Page reinvigorates this cross-cultural learning tale asserting its essential theme, long neglected and suppressed, of the need to recover the wisdom, power, and compassion of the feminine principle." (Curtis McCosco, CirclesofLight.com, April 2010)

“. . . the emphasis is on the heart rather than the mind . . .” (Dell Horoscope, November 2010)

“A masterpiece of ancient wisdom and truth that is so compelling that you cannot put this book down. Rarely does a book come along that reads as if it is a text directly from an ancient mystery school, but 2012 and the Galactic Center qualifies for that status. It truly is a must-read.”
(Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Power and Healing)

“Based on the keys to understanding 2012--the galactic alignment, the dark rift ‘birth place’ in the Milky Way, and the Galactic Center ‘womb’--Christine Page elaborates the astrological dynamics and spiritual challenges of our impending transformation and renewal.” (John Major Jenkins, author of Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 and Unlocking the Secrets of 2012)

2012 and the Galactic Center engages us in the most exciting event in 260 centuries! Christine Page presents positive challenges to conventional doubts about the future.” (C. Norman Shealy, coauthor of Soul Medicine: Awakening Your Inner Blueprint for Abundant Health and)

“Christine Page is a remarkable wisdomkeeper, and her book is a masterful and enlightening synthesis of ageless wisdom that speaks to our troubled times.” (Brian Luke Seaward, author of Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water)

"Dr. Page's book is an inspirational journey into spiritual alchemy." (Nexus New Times Magazine)

"[2012 and the Galactic Center is] about tuning in to the goddess (feminine) qualities of intuition, compassion, and emotional creativity to facilitate the expansion of our collective consciousness." (Chris Lorenz, Dell Horoscope)

" . . . very well written and extremely powerful." (Dr. Tami Brady, Whole Health Therapist)

"An extraordinary book for an extraordinary time." (Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide, Issue No. 29, Jan/Feb 2009)

"The significance of this 2012 date, coupled with the void at the center of the galaxy, creates fear in some; the end of the Mayan calendar could be the end of times. Others are far more hopeful. Dr. Christine Page sits squarely in the second camp." (Spirit of Change, Vol. 22, No. 106, W)

"Read this book if you can, it could open you up to interesting possibilities, and at the very least, mitigate your fears around the 2012 issue, at least a little. Strongly recommended." (Bani Sodermark, Karlstad, Sweden, Nov 2008)

" . . . I found the book an enjoyable and interesting read." (Geoff Stray, Caduceus, Issue 76, Jan 09)

“A masterpiece of ancient wisdom and truth that is so compelling that you cannot put this book down. Rarely does a book come along that reads as if it is a text directly from an ancient mystery school, but 2012 and the Galactic Center qualifies for that status. It truly is a must-read.”

“Based on the keys to understanding 2012--the galactic alignment, the dark rift ‘birth place’ in the Milky Way, and the Galactic Center ‘womb’--Christine Page elaborates the astrological dynamics and spiritual challenges of our impending transformation and renewal.”
--John Major Jenkins, author of Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 and Unlocking the Secrets of 2012

This is an extraordinary time in the planet’s history. In 2012, for the first time in almost 26,000 years, our sun will be most closely aligned to the Galactic Center. This Alignment, which began with the Harmonic Convergence in 1987 and will conclude in 2023, presents a thirty-six-year window of opportunity for humanity to participate in the creation of a new era of expanded consciousness.

Christine Page explains that, as the source of all creation, our galaxy is the Great Mother and its center, her heart. Auspiciously aligning Earth with the heart of the Mother, the Alignment heralds a rebirth of the divine feminine qualities of the Triple Goddess--intuition, emotional creativity, and renewal. Drawing on alchemy and mythology, Page details how to connect with and use the sacred spiritual tools unlocked during the alignment to merge with the Great Mother, a spiritual transformation that allows us to expand our awareness and experience ourselves as eternal beings.

CHRISTINE R. PAGE, M.D., began her medical practice in London in 1978 and combined it with homeopathy in 1989. She is an international seminar leader on subtle energy and energy medicine, having created a three-level training program to enhance the power of intuition for health care professionals. She is the author of Frontiers of Health: How to Heal the Whole Person and Spiritual Alchemy. She lives in California.

48 of 50 people found the following review helpful By Bani Sodermark VINE VOICE on September 23, 2008
Format: Paperback
As the magic date of Dec.21, 2012 approaches, there has been a tremendous upsurge in the number of books on the subject (my own search on amazon revealed some 94,000 plus entries). Many of them spell out apocalyptic prospects for humanity in the few years to come, in effect, amplifying the already dominant 'victim' vibration in our troposphere. This book is not like that. Refreshingly original, it re-creates some age old methods of creating a new space within ourselves with which to go out and meet the coming changes with welcoming hearts, instead of fear and foreboding. The way there, according to the author, is, in short, the quite simple, (or complex) prescription of acknowledging and accepting our own shadowy and unloved selves, and allowing them to operate in concert with our total persona as a whole.

However, this book is not a how-to-manual. Rich in allegorical content, it uses the imagery of archetypal energies to depict, among other themes, the journey of soul through the twelve signs of the zodiac into a recognition of its own light. Especially evocative, is the imagery associated with the comparison of the heart of the Galactic Center with the Great Mother, whence the expansive white area of stars, represent her pregnant womb and the Dark Rift between, her birth cleft or vagina. Another appealing symbol that has been invoked, and one that to me, resonates particularly strongly, is that of Kali, the Hindu goddess of Death and Regeneration, also referred to by Paramahamsa Yogananda as 'Divine Mother'. As the energies of our sun align with those of the Galactic Center, it is, (according to the author) as if we die to our old selves when we get sucked into the 'black hole' of Kali's womb, and emerge on the other side, via a 'white hole' renewed and rejuvenated in entirety.

Format: Paperback
This book presents a very important contribution to the exploration of the significance of the year 2012. It's focus is on archetypal patterns and the transformation of ourselves that can be fostered as our civilization is faced with this time of shifting. Dr. Page examines major archetypal roles that have been reflected in the myths of societies from around the world through history. As the subtitle suggest, the archetypal aspects of the feminine are of great significance, and we are invited to integrate all aspects of ourselves. Astrology and alchemy are metaphysical tools for understanding and applying this awareness in the process of spiritual growth and integration. Thus, this book examines astrological issues as well as elemental and archetypal patterns that are reflected in myths. This book actually has little to do with what may happen externally in 2012; instead, it invites us all to progress in our path of inner transformation. There is a lot to ponder here... this is a great book for those who wish to accelerate their personal growth as 2012 approaches, though anyone looking for prognostication about earth changes and rapid shifts in the external world may be disappointed. I applaud this author for her thoughtful input about how we can embrace this time of great opportunity for personal growth.

It was fantastic to find in only one book all the knowledge I've been reaserching in many books for quite some time. Understanding with my left hemisphere what has been first intuited on how one thing is linked to the other. It confirms the feeling of how the Great Mother is emerging from the unconscious of many, at least that 5% she speaks about. For the awakened and those on the way, it's a great2012 and the Galactic Center: The Return of the Great Mother read.

Format: Paperback
This 234 page book from 2008 is different than the many other spiritual awakening and 2012 books that I have read and I really enjoyed it. I honestly wished I had read it sooner, but I probably understood it better by reading it at this time in my path. It is full of mythology and alchemy, and history. It has the "stuff" behind the Wizard of Oz's curtain. It tells you how we traveled from here to there, and how it all connects. Our author, Christine Page, "began her medical practice in London, in 1978 and combined it with homeopathy in 1989. She now lives in California, and has created a training program to enhance the power of intuition for health-care professionals."

The "Great Mother" is the overarching primal source, the "ocean of possibilities" where all dreams and ideas arise and where they will cycle back to return one day. The first chapter lays a foundation of the transformational period we are in now, from the 1987 Harmonic Convergence, the Mayan Calendar and shift to 2012, and beyond - entering the world of the "ether/5th element," gaining access to multidimensional realms of universal awareness, Pythagorean concepts/Platonic Solids, entering the New Age of the Unity/Christ Grid, and the Journey Through the Galactic Center.

Although there is a lot of interesting info in this book that I enjoyed (and I will read it more than once), my favorite part was toward the end, where we review Hermes Trismegistus and the writings of Balinas, the third incarnation of Hermes. Here, Christine breaks the lines down, matching them to each of the chakras (energy centers of the body) and discusses the meaning/journey of the self through that chakra toward ascension. (This section alone was priceless to me!
