With the Mayan Long Calendar coming to an end in 11 days some people are preparing for the end of the world while others are celebrating. Travel Weekly has reported that visitors of the Yucatan region of Mexico have been taking part in celebrations since December 21st of last year. According to experts, most Mayans do not believe that the world is actually ending but rather that there is a transition taking place to a “new beginning.”

Xcaret, Cancun’s eco-archaeological park, has had nightly festivities which will end with a grand finale on the 21st that will include the release of 104 Macaws into the sky. The Macaw is special the culture of the Maya in that they represent the Sun. The Asheville Jung Center has just released a full length video seminar discussing the culture and significance of the Maya and the end of their Long Count calendar. It is being offered at a special price from now until December 22nd. We are offering full refunds if the world ends on December 21st! The Asheville Jung Center was founded in 2008 to advance the psychology of Carl Jung and promote an international Jungian community. It is affiliated with innerQuest Psychiatry and Counseling, a regional psychiatrist group.

People are looking for clues that can help decipher the meaning and implications of the Mayan prophecies. The impression that the world may come to some cataclysmic end is deeply etched into the human psyche and appears as a recurring motif. The Asheville Jung Center is at the leading edge of exploring the significance of the Mayan Prophecy.

“There is an aspect of the primitive part of our brain that fears the abyss; this finds expression in sacred literature and in various myths and rituals of ancient cultures, and the failure to acknowledge this notion of annihilation may result in acting out these themes in aberrant ways," says Dr. Steven Buser, co-founder of the Asheville Jung Center. Dr. Len Cruz, also of the Asheville Jung Center, offered several examples of aberrant patterns evident in current events ”…the denial of the evidence concerning environmental degradation, the paralysis in dealing with the impending fiscal crisis in the US and elsewhere, and the psychic numbing as described by the psychiatrist, Robert J. Lifton in association with the threat of nuclear destruction that was initially identified in survivors of Hiroshima.”
