More than a calendar…
The Tzolk’in calendar is only one of many Mayan calendars and is refereed to as the Sacred Calendar of Creation. The calendar tracks the rhythm, flow and evolution of Human consciousness.
Ian Lungold defined consciousness as “our awareness of being aware.” Most of us experience this only during the significant experiences in our lives. The calendar offers an orientation of time and place to our own Human consciousness.
The Mayan calendars gained widespread interest with the prophecy that December 21, 2012 marked the end of the calendar. The date relates to a prophecy regarding the Evolution of mankind. On a calendar that tracks billions of years, we still reside in that “split second” of time.
FREE TZOLK’IN JOURNAL PAGE (PDF)
This is an early draft of the Tzolk’in journal that will be offered for pre-order in August. You could start your own now to start out in a similar format. I’ll be looking for wholesale pricing on spiral bound journals. The page offers places to note aspects and draw the glyph of the day.
