I was shocked to learn today (on John’s 53rd birthday) that he is suffering a life-threatening illness. John has been a lifelong impassioned researcher of Mayan cosmology and a major voice & author on the significance of the Mayan culture, calendar, and the year 2012.
His perspective on the 2012 phenom, however, was not that it was about “the end of time,” but rather, “the center of time.”
Interesting! .. but not on the gravy train of most other voices re: the 2012 phenomenon, and John found himself on the receiving end of much blow-back due to his independent findings and POV.
He was recently interviewed for over FIVE hours by friend “Jonathan Zap,” who trekked out from Boulder to John’s mountain home for what might turn out to be his “last word.” I’m sad to learn of this situation and can’t help but wonder (suspect) this illness befell him as his life’s work met with so much flack.
If JMJ & his 2012/Mayan work are/were of interest to you, you might want to check in with him now. In a perfect world this interview would have been broken into manageable segments but as it is, it’s a full 5 hours that I’ve only heard the beginning of as of this moment.
Check the bulleted list of topics below to get an idea of its contents. The interview is audio only, but many photos provide visual documentation of John’s soul-driven life.

John Major Jenkins — Reflecting on a Life of Discoveries and Tribulations
in Conversation with Jonathan Zap
Under somewhat ominous circumstances on Sunday, February 12th of 2017, I drove from where I live in Boulder to the home of my old friend and colleague, John Major Jenkins, who lives in Windsor, Colorado. It was a beautiful day with Colorado’s glorious high-altitude lighting and unseasonably warm temperatures.
The metaphorical weather, however, was out of synch with the actual weather because there were dark, storm clouds massing on the personal horizon of my old friend. John is facing a life-threatening health crisis, and the main purpose of my visit was to record the long conversation you have in front of you, an in-depth reflection on the meaning of John’s most important discoveries, and the triumphs and tribulations of a path of exploration he began when he first visited Mayan ruins at the age of twenty-two.
It is the sort of health crisis where one could still hope for miracles, or at least to be an extreme statistical outlier, but only a fool would neglect preparations to cross the event horizon. And John is no fool of course, and has been spending all his free time in ultimate deadline writing and publication mode. Continue reading
