Aztec Sun Stone Calendar Replica Wikipedia Image.


December 21st, 2012, is the end of the Aztec/Mayan calendar.  

Collisions with comets, conflagration, and cataclysms are predicted. And that’s just on the History Channel.

Hollywood’s Cecil B. DeMille-scale, end-of-the-world thriller, 2012, will be out in November.

Doomsday prophets warn of floods, pestilence, wars, and diseases.

And, even scarier, there’s a rumor that in 2012, Sarah Palin will be on the Republican ticket.



But is it all doom and gloom?

That’s the question the 2012 Quantum Leap conference asked.

The first in a series of global 2012 Quantum Leap conferences was held in Burbank, CA, March 13-15th, 2009. The conference was offered by Sri Ram Kaa and Kira Raa, founders of the TOSA Center for Spiritual Enlightenment in New Mexico. (www.selfascension.com) Sri is a former psychotherapist, and Kira is a clairvoyant.  

Sri and Kira gathered together a host of non-doomsday, positive thinkers and artisans to explore the mysteries of 2012.  

And they all offered a welcome balance to the Nostradamian negativity that tends to permeate the subject. The 2012 winter solstice may be more like a great cosmic odometer quietly hitting 99,999 miles. Thankfully, the recalibration of the odometer generally doesn’t cause the car to explode.  

As Kira reminded everyone, often the loudest proclamations about the end of the world come from the folks at “BuyMyBunker@Bunker.com.”



the Venerable Tulku Karma Gyurme Sonam Rinpoche

Tibetan lama, the Venerable Tulku Karma Gyurme Sonam Rinpoche, was accompanied by his father, a monk who has lived in a cave for the last 24 years. They offered chants and prayers at the opening to bless the conference.



don Jose Ruiz

Nagual (master teacher) don Jose Ruiz, the son of the famous “The Four Agreements” author, offered a dose of Toltec wisdom generously spiced with humor. He reminded his audience that the ancient leader of the Aztecs fell because he misinterpreted the prophecy of the return of Quetzalcoatl as an event that would happen OUTSIDE of himself, instead of within, inviting the audience to their personal inner journey of re-membering.
