About the Author

Carl J Calleman,Swedish,has a Ph.D. in Physical Biology and has lectured extensively around the world on Environmental Health and Preventive Medicine.

More About the Author

Carl Johan Calleman was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1950. While as young
his main interest was in the humanities and history the first phase of his scientific career was training and practice as a natural scientist in the years 1974-93. He got his Ph.D in Physical Biology under the mentorship of a member of the Nobel Committees and have later also written a number of widely cited articles especially in the fields of Environmental Science, Chemistry and Cancer Research. He was invited to lecture among many other places at the MIT, Cornell, the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine and the WHO.

During a backpacking trip to Mexico and Guatemala in 1979 he however became aware of the enormous hidden potential of the Mayan calendar for helping us understand the meaning of the human existence. This insight led to the second phase of his research career, which has been dedicated to understanding the Mayan calendar. It has included writing books on topics ranging from consciousness shifts to a new theory about biological evolution. He has helped the modern-day Mayan elders bring their message to the world. His three books on the topic have been translated to a total of fourteen languages and he has held courses and lectures in some twenty different countries.

The launching of The Paradigm Shift Trilogy in 2014, with The Global Mind and the Rise of Civilization, draws on the experiences from both of the previous phases. This trilogy explores various aspects of the relationship between brain and mind and how this is related to the rise of the early civilizations of our planet. He is convinced that rigorous science is needed to bring about a paradigm shift, which allows humanity to live up to its spiritual destiny.

Format: Paperback
In this scholarly work Carl Calleman examines the Mayan calendar in detail and explains how the Mayans combined their knowledge and understanding of not only time, but spirituality, evolutionary cycles, historical cycles and the very fabric of the universe into their system. Calleman weaves historical information with science, religious philosophy of various types, the pyramids, evolution and various other items to show how they are all related to the pattern of the Mayan calendar. Since the Mayan calendar continues through the year 2011 it predicts the pattern of things to come.

Interesting reading, it is filled with very scholarly research but at times it seems quite a stretch to make some of the items match up. Still it provides a thorough and rich understanding of the Mayan philosophy and how the calendar system contained their complete understanding of life, the cosmos, time, nature and God. A recommended read.

I know there's been many who have written quite negative reviews, and I am also quite well acquainted with other authors on the same or related topics centering on 2012 and the Calendar and the Nahautl lore and traditions. Oddly, people have taken positions favoring a particular "author", but my take is the content and the overall "message" of the book. Most who had written previously about the Calendar have used it primarily as a focal point to somehow prove the predictions of a coming Biblical "Doomsday" and the destruction of the Earth and humankind. I found my way to this book via Ian Xel Lundgold's video presentation on the Evolution of Human Consciousness! I found that perspective to be SO refreshing, and, dare I say "ENLIGHTENING"? Yes. I highly recommend this book, if for no other reason than to see an more POSITIVE interpretation of the Calendar. It shifts the whole dynamic and gives a greater comprehension concerning things as they have been, as they are, and as they seem to be unfolding.

I know some readers are also looking for definitive "prophetic" revelations, but I think that is perhaps a misguided endeavor (as we can so readily see by all the doomsdayers running amuck). I really resonate with the idea that the cycles Calleman explains are not "circular", but rather like a "spiral" coming to an ultimate elevating conclusion.

Namaste

Format: Paperback
Science and shamanism meet face-to-face in full embrace. I was astounded by the confirmation of traditional teachings with scientific fact. That all of our history and prior evolution can actually be mapped, and was described and predicted by the Maya, is the most reassuring and stimulating knowlege we've yet discovered. Dr. Calleman has proven with precise charts, descriptions and explanations that all events occur in a ever-evolving cycle and that time is not speeding up, creation is! The only conclusion must be that by 2012 we all will be living in a vastly expanded conscousness. Hurrah for this book! Hurrah for the evolution of consciousness!

What has completely entranced me about Carl Johan Calleman's book is that he shows how consciousness is not only primary to matter, but also time itself. I'm sure you've come across the endtime date of December 2012 before, but he's got all the details in-between now and then nailed down and wow what an incredible ride we're in for. The last increase in the vibration of time occurred on January 4, 1999, so that every 360 days we on earth will experience major changes, whereas it had been every 19.7 years approx. Then during the last 260 days (before the closing of the cycles) the changes happen every 20 days!
Creation is accelerating and we are the Creators.

I am so appreciative for this book and all the work it represents. Speaking for myself, I feel so benefitted by the perspective of a picture this big, this ancient and this relevant to events throughout time itself. I have been interested in the Mayan Calendar in times past but never have I been so "grabbed" and held inthralled by the potential of evolving consciousness. What a gift at this timie of so much shifting that all can feel but few can identify sufficiently to draw up a map for living. This book inspires to bend and flex in all the right ways and not to fear but to accept that what is coming will look, feel and be very different from what we are used to.

Format: Paperback
Dr Carl J. Calleman has discovered a strong thread of truth which is presented in this new book. What will we weave of it? Here we have a bridge from our logical, rational western minds, to the Heart of indigenous wisom and the portal of our own intuition. Dr. Calleman offers up information so that any student of Conscious Evolution can prove to themselves that there is indeed a schedual of Creation. From all that we can scientifically prove of what happened when, all of the major events in Evolution and throughout our history match the timing shifts of the Mayan calendar. For 16.4 billion years the flow of Creation and Evolution has been going through an acceleration. We are just now beginning to be able to percieve the shifts in speed and scope of Consciousness within one life-time. Remember when a single second was a short period of time? Now a Billion things happen in a single second. This acceleration will contiune, bringing ever more rapid and dynamic changes to our lives. Understanding "why?" is the tonic we all need. Find yours in this book.
