Mayan Revelations: Decoding Baqtun

52 mins2015

Filmmaker and author Elisabeth Thieriot embarks on an epic journey of discovery through the jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula and Guatemala to dispel the myths about “the December 21st 2012 end of the world” conspiracy theories surrounding Aztec and Mayan Calendars. Specifically, she works to decode the mystery of the Baqtun, also known as the measurement of time that the Mayans identified as a 3,300-year cycle.

Along her journey, Elisabeth discovers a connection between repeatable cycles in the cosmos, nature, and human existence. These discoveries lead Elisabeth to revelations of wisdom residing within the living Mayan descendants known as “Abuelos,” who share their knowledge of the intricate workings of time, the cosmos, and our connection to earth science on a spiritual and scientific level.
