Time, Evolution, Prophecy and 2012

Autumn Conferences at Emerson College

2012 is a time of global turbulence and change. The old is disintegrating and a new culture is waiting to emerge.


For many years the end of the Mayan Calendar on December 21st, 2012 has been the subject of prophecy.


In this series of three conferences at the internationally renowned Emerson College, our expert presenters will delve into the possibilities opening up in this special time.


The Conferences

September 7th–9th

The Calendar, Cyclical Time and Evolution

Friday, Sep 7th, 4:30pm to Sunday, Sep 9th, 1:30pm

Emerson College, Forest Row, RH18 5JX


Contributions by John Meeks & eurythmist, including a eurythmy performance.


This conference will look at the history of the calendar in the light of the evolution of consciousness. We will discuss the different cycles of time - the archangel periods, the Platonic Year, the great epochs of planetary evolution and the Mayan Calendar.


We will also see how these periods are mirrored in the festivals of the year and other calendrical cycles.

October 12th–14th

The Mayan Calendar and the real meaning of 2012

Friday, Oct 12th, 4:30pm to Sunday, Oct 14th, 1:30pm

Emerson College, Forest Row, RH18 5JX


Contributions by Dr Robert Powell and Angela Lord


In this conference we will examine the significance of the end of the Mayan Calendar on December 21st, 2012.


Taking an approach inspired by the work of Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, we will explore the interrelationships of the heavenly bodies as an outer expression of the being of Sophia—the embodiment of human wisdom—and show how Steiner's work is able to describe the spiritual connections between the macrocosm and the microcosm - between the universe and our personal lives on Earth.

We will also bring deeper perspectives to these developments based on Rudolf Steiner's insights into reincarnation and karma.
