Mayan Prophecy

Mayan Calendar


By David Johanssen

For the last several years, everyone has been talking about the Mayan Prophecies, but who is listening to the Maya? At the heart of this discussion rests two fundamentally different views of the world; a materialist and a spiritual. From a modern point of view, the driving factor behind the changing ages is seen as a physical cycle of matter, based on the idea that the locations of physical bodies and the planets are behind events on Earth. A contrary theory is that consciousness is primary to matter, and even the movement of matter is ultimately subordinated to cosmic creation cycles. The true meaning of the Mayan Calendar is something of such a grand scale that it may serve to unify science and religion with the cosmic intelligence. Join us for a discussion on this compelling topic Tuesday, January 6 at 4pm as Shelter Theater continues its documentary series with The Mayan Word. Featuring testimonies from contemporary Mayans throughout Mesoamerica, from spiritual guides to activists, community leaders, farmers, artists, and teachers, this film is a journey into the heart of Mayan struggle and spirituality. 40 pesos.

On Friday, January 9 at 7pm join us for a live concert with The Better Halves, an Austin-based husband-wife duo with roots in country, bluegrass, folk, jazz, and classical music.
