In Discussion – January 26 & 27, 2011 Carl Johan Calleman ‘The Mayan Calendar’

Guest Carl Johan Calleman was born in Stockholm, Sweden at noon May 15, 1950, which in the Sacred Calendar corresponds to the day 5 Jaguar. Curiously this is also the exact midpoint of the month dedicated to the Roman goddess Maia. Stockholm is fairly remote from the jungles of Guatemala, but these were some signs that maybe he had something to do there (although of course I was only appreciate the importance of these signs at a much later point). He first became interested in the Maya and their calendar during a trip to Mexico and Guatemala in 1979. He fell in love with this people, and also had a feeling that this was my spiritual home on earth. Somehow it seemed that the purpose of his life was linked to this people and their calendar, that he had become fascinated by. This was long before the Mayan calendar had become a matter of widespread and as he read in Michael Coe’s book about the Maya that their calendar would come to an end in the year 2011 it sparked a deep wonder in him. ”Why would a calendar end?” he asked himself although 2011 then seemed a long time into the future.
