The Transcendent Wisdom of the Maya

Can you think like the Ancient Maya?

Gabriela Jurosz-Landa, a cultural anthropologist and Maya shaman, explains the spiritual wisdom of the Maya calendar as a living entity, its cycles of time, and the significance of “the counting of the days,” which helps keep time itself alive. She examines Maya spiritual and cosmological concepts such as how the universe is shaped like a triangle over a square. Exploring other Maya secret knowledge, she also details Maya ritual attire, Maya future-telling with the calendar, the reading of the Tzi’te beans, and how the Maya communicate with ancestors through the sacred fire.

Illustrating how contemporary Maya life is suffused with spiritual tradition and celebration, Gabriela shares the teachings of the Maya from her initiate and anthropologist point of view in order to help us all learn from the ancient wisdom of their beliefs and worldview. Because, to truly understand the Maya, one must think like the Maya!

Star-Crossed Consciousness

Star-Crossed Consciousness - Ancient Origins Webinars

Can celestial electro-magnetic fields influence the rise and fall of civilization and man’s mental wellbeing?

Walter Cruttenden’s Great Year hypothesis* entails that subtle celestial influences, produced by the electromagnetic fields of planets and stars, can impact not only human consciousness but also the rise and fall of civilization. There is enough evidence that humans are affected by magnetic fields, exposure to light, and the ionization of the air we breathe. Solar flares of planets 45,000 light years away cause ionization changes on earth, and it has already been established that man is sensitive to negative ions (an anti-depressant) which can cause a change in consciousness.

The Conscious Electro Magnetic Information Field Theory (CEMI), shows that the brain’s weak, but complex, electromagnetic field (EM) allows each cell instant access to the information contained in every other cell in the brain. In essence, it suggests that consciousness is related to the EM fields that the body produces—especially those produced by the brain. The latest neuropsychological non-invasive therapy, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), involves an electrical current running through a coil placed on the scalp. Already research is indicating that it counters the effects of depression in 60% of patients for whom nothing else worked.

Arguably, TMS involves the use of a pulsed electromagnetics in close proximity to the brain, creating a much more intense localized field than we would experience from the Earth’s and Sun’s magnetic fields, but it is possible that the waves generated by celestial objects in distant space may also have a rhythmic or “pulsing” effect due to the resonant nature of orbital physics – the very mechanism that keeps space orderly and causes the cycles of nature.

Eastern philosophies about life and consciousness date to prehistory and are fundamentally different from those in the West, especially in the field of medicine. According to Eastern healing philosophy, man has an energy or spiritual body that supports and transcends the physical vehicle. This predates Western physical medicine and stretches far back into the distant past of the Asian cultures, with acupuncture and acupressure being two examples. The ancient Chinese 64 I Ching code is identical to the genetic code of DNA, which describes the entire living world and was discovered by the West less than 50 years ago.

The Power of the Black Madonna and Her Still-Living Shamans

Was a goddess born when a black meteorite struck Earth?

The mysteries of the Black Madonna can be traced to pre-Christian times, to the ancient devotion to Isis, the Earth Goddess, and the African Mother, to the era when God was not only female but also black. Sharing her more than 35 years of research and fieldwork at sacred sites around the world, Belloni explains how her love for Italian folk music led her to learn the ancient tammorriata musical tradition of the Earth Goddess Cybele and the Moon Goddess Diana and discover the still-living cult of the Black Madonna in the remote villages of Southern Italy. Belloni shows that the shamanic traditions of the Black Madonna are still alive today—and just as powerful as they were millennia ago. 

Discover the surprising ancient connections of the Black Madonna in this fascinating In-Depth interview with Alessandra Belloni.

Alessandra Belloni is a world-renowned percussionist, singer, dancer, and actress born in Rome. Voted one of the best female percussionists in the world by Drum Magazine, she designed a signature series of tambourines for REMO, Inc. She is the founder and lead performer of “I Giullari di Piazza,” an Italian music, theatre, and dance ensemble, and is an Artist-in-Residence at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City.

Whales in the Egyptian Desert? Discover Wadi-al-Hitan - Valley of the Whales
Saturday December 8, 2018 3:30pm EST
by Prof Fanie Vermaak
Whales in the Egyptian Desert?  Discover Wadi-al-Hitan - Valley of the Whales

How on earth did whales come to swim in the deserts of Egypt?

Join Professor Fanie Vermaak, archaeologist and expert on Ancient Egypt and the Near East on a walk-through of Wadi-al-Hitan and explore how the fossils of these whales landed up in the desert.  Surprisingly, there are also a larger number of shark fossils with them!

The ‘Valley of the Whales’ — often called the ‘Bay of Whales’ — has a large number of fossilized whales (more than 500 fossil skeletons and five different species) in a relatively small area at different strategic levels roughly 60 kilometres south-west from the Fayum, in the Western Desert of Egypt.  

Wadi al-Hitan was declared a World Heritage Site in 2005. The number, concentration and quality of the fossils from the Eocene era in this protected area have no comparison across the globe. The fossils of the Basilosaurus and Dorudon are only some of the species from around 40 million years ago.

Besides the abundant mangrove and several crystal logs of beached shipworm-bored wood, a large variety of sawfish, bony fishes, several kinds of turtles, sea snakes were also found in the area. Scholars have now been questioning whether it should rather be called the “Whales in the Valley of the Sharks” because the remains of the whales have tremendous bite marks from shark and even shark teeth remained on the skeletons of the whales!

Discover how this happened and the current research in this fascinating In-Depth interview with Fanie Vermaak.

Fanie VermaakDr Fanie Vermaak is a professor in Ancient Near Eastern Studies at the University of South Africa. With an initial background in theological studies (also ordained minister of the Dutch Reformed Church) he focuses on various cultural activities in the Ancient Near East, specializing in Sumerian and Egyptology.

Vermaak studied Theology and various Semitic Languages at the Universities of the Free State (Bloemfontein) and Stellenbosch, South Africa.  He specialized (PhD) in the cuneiform (Sumerian) studies of the Ur III period (2100-2000 BC) on the activities of the temple administrators of Southern Mesopotamia and published also extensively in this regard. He extended further studies with the various ancient gateways of the Near East towards also the outside world so far as the Indus Valley. Vermaak is also the chairperson of the Ancient Egypt and Near Eastern Society (AENES) who is responsible for the monthly evening lectures for the public sector (15 years). He served eight years on the national academic society called Southern African Society for Near Eastern Society. He is a founding member of International Society of Cuneiform Studies. Fanie often acts as a Middle East analyst on various media and has a special interest in the ancient and modern Near East or Middle East.

Journey into Darkness: The Fossil Discovery that Changed History

Journey into Darkness: The Fossil Discovery that Changed History

In the bowels of Mother Earth laid Naledi…

Join our expert caver and explorer, Rick Hunter as he takes us down the narrow chute into the bowels of Mother Earth to find Naledi, long-forgotten by time.

September the 13th fell on a Friday in 2013, a date reputed for bad fortune, though it proved one of the luckiest days in the history of palaeoanthropology. Within the unexplored compartment ~ 30 meters underground, now known as “Dinaledi Chamber,” Rick Hunter and his caving partner Steven Tucker discovered such an incredible surface collection of hominin fossils that even without training, they knew that both their lives and the face of an arcane field of inquiry were irretrievably changed. The long shadow of good fortune cast from that cavern has extended into all aspects of Rick’s life, both professional and personal.

Evolutionary Studies InstitudeRick (as a “small space specialist”) and Steven went on to form the core of a dedicated five-member exploration team employed by Professor Lee Berger of the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa to expand the list of known hominin fossil sites within the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site (CoH WHS). This has led to the discovery of scores of new sites, new fossils, and new skill sets. Always one to push the boundaries, Rick has pursued advanced off-road driving, rope work, venomous snake identification and handling, and recently received his RPL (remote pilots license) that will help pioneer a new level in exploration.

This exclusive interview will detail the discovery, recovery, analysis and interpretation of the newly discovered hominin species Homo naledi, as well as a spine-tingling ride through exploration deep within the depths of ancient caverns full of secrets.

Perhaps most remarkably, the context of the find has led the researchers to conclude that this primitive-looking hominin may have practiced a form of behavior previously thought to be unique to humans! Join Rick to find out.

 

Rick HunterA native of Johannesburg and alum of Randpark High, Rick Hunter showed an early interest in dark and dangerous activities, much to his mother’s chagrin. Rick’s daunting resume includes rock climbing, abseiling, bouldering, technical rope work, Rap jumping, venomous snake-handling, and motorcycling.  Rick Hunter’s passion for exciting, outdoor activities brought him to caving in February 2013. By September 13, 2013, he had already logged over 50 underground trips, though the one that date was to become by far the most memorable. On that evening, along with colleague Steven Tucker (caver), Rick undertook the exploration of an unknown, tiny chute within the well-traveled Rising Star cave system, Cradle of Humankind, some 50 kilometers north-west of Johannesburg, South Africa.  |  University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa

O My Prophetic Soul! A History of Paranormal Activity in South Africa

O My Prophetic Soul! A History of Paranormal Activity in South Africa

‘O my prophetic soul!’, cries Hamlet when he encounters the ghost of his murdered father in Shakespeare’s play.

31 October marks Halloween, All Hallows' Evening or All Saints' Eve, originally a three-day observance dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints, martyrs, and all the faithful departed.  The roots of Halloween may be traced back to the Pagan Gaelic harvest festival of Samhain which had been transformed by the church to commemorate the deceased.

Whatever its origins, the festival has morphed into a fanfare of ghosts, witches, goblins, zombies and other macabre underworld creatures roaming the streets begging for sweets. During the Middle Ages, churches that were too poor to display the relics of martyred saints at All Hallows’ Evening invited parishioners dress up as saints instead and from there came the custom to dress up in costume. Globally the dead are celebrated on this night, and haunted places attract the brave and the curious like moths to a candle.

Paranormalist Mark Rose-Christie takes an In-Depth look at the phenomena of paranormal manifestations and especially their activities in South Africa. Join us for the night and share Mark’s encounters with residual ghosts, crises ghosts, single apparitions and everyone’s favorite, the poltergeist. He also discusses some of South Africa’s most famous haunted historic homes, like the Erasmus Castle, St Aidan’s Jesuit College and a Feather Baron’s Palace in Oudtshoorn.

O My Prophetic Soul! A History of Paranormal Activity in South Africa

Mark Rose-Christie is academically a sociologist, a professional TV/film-maker, theatrical producer/director, entertainer and illusionist, as well as being South Africa's leading paranormalist, his work appearing in several ghost books.

As a sociologist he lectured at the University of Port Elizabeth (today NMMU), and continued studying at Rhodes University, whilst also producing the shark movie “White Death” (a parody of the movie “Jaws”), plus magazine programs for the launch of the SATV-2 Xhosa-Zulu channel back in its day in South Africa, under the mentorship of the late Bill Faure. 

Mark prematurely launched the Mystery Ghost Bus of South Africa, a 'Theatre-On-Wheels' production which remains unparalleled to date in that it offers more than any other known ghost production in the world. It has become the longest running ‘production-on-wheels’ in the country, winning the esteemed International Luxury Travel Guide Awards three years in a row. | Mystery Ghost Bus

Join us for a spooky and thrilling In-Depth Interview, and get a sneak-peek at Mark’s paranormal investigations in the Ancient Origins article, “Former Home of South African Statesman Rumored To Be Haunted”!

The Grail Code: The Mystic Druidic Teachings of Jesus of Nazareth
Friday September 21, 2018 2:45pm EST

The Grail Code: The Mystic Druidic Teachings of Jesus of Nazareth

What advanced wisdom was Jesus passing on to his inner circle?

In AD 35, two years after Jesus’ crucifixion, Christianity entered Britain with the founding of the Nazarene Church in AD 37. This was accepted by King Caractacus and the British Royal family, who were relations of Jesus. Joseph ha Rama Theo (James the Just) in his role of Decurio, (procurer of minerals) with a granddaughter married to the nephew of Caractacus, Apostle Simon Zelotes, and Astrolobus were all present in Britain around this time, linking Jesus to the Druidic Schools and the high culture of Britain and indicating Britain as a starting point for his mission.

Christian O'Brien's translation of the Askew and Bruce Codices, 2nd-century-AD-Egyptian-Coptic copies of original documents, recording the spoken words of Jesus of Nazareth, presented within the text of The Path of Light, provide authoritative and detailed support of the existence and journeys of the soul. It also provides the scriptural evidence that Jesus taught Surat Shabd Yoga, and should be recognized as a Perfect Living Master in the Druidic and Oriental tradition.

Following his attempt to restore good government through kingship and the Grail Code, Jesus was teaching the ancient druidic/oriental wisdom to his inner circle of chosen disciples after his Crucifixion, so that they could carry on his work following his Ascension. His words were recorded and witnessed by the disciple scribes Matthew, Philip and Thomas - the required process of authentication of important documents, under the Hebraic law of that time.

Of the greatest importance to the future of religious harmony today is that this O'Brien secular translation of these source documents has established that Jesus was teaching Surat (soul) Shabd (word) Yoga (union) to his inner circle of disciples, which contained both men and women. This advanced teaching to both men and women was a feature of all high cultures in the ancient world centered on archaic Druidic philosophy and practice.

The Grail Code: The Mystic Druidic Teachings of Jesus of NazarethChristian O’Brien was the one person who, before he died in 2001, mastered the translation skills required to understand the archaic Sumerian cuneiform writing.

Edmund Marriage, founder of The Golden Age Project, will be presenting Christian O’Brien’s translations and interpretations of Jesus’ Grail Code teachings as discussed in O’Brien’s The Path of Light.

Edmund Marriage is the Principal of the Patrick Foundation, an Independent Researcher with a background in Investment Management, Business and Land Management. He qualified as a Chartered Land Agent (CLAS)and as an Associate of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (ARICS) at the Royal Agricultural College Cirencester and Wye College, London University.

His extensive historical research has revealed a single advanced, secular benevolent source for all religions. His Golden Age Project, inspired by the work of Christian and Barbara Joy O’Brien, promotes the recovery of past knowledge in order to resolve many of today's problems. He believes that re-establishing high standards of training and knowledge for all important roles, forms a priority in establishing good government and successful social organization and cohesion. Edmund’s Learning form History series of Presentations and Broadcasts attract an audience of over 100,000.

Stone Age Enlightenment & Sacred Numbers in Megalithic Monuments
Sunday August 26, 2018 5:00pm EST
by Richard Heath
Stone Age Enlightenment & Sacred Numbers in Megalithic Monuments

What was the Greatest Secret of the Stone Age?

Clear-thinking survivors of the last Ice Age applied their minds to understanding events within an ever-changing sky. Counting time periods within repeated sky-events revealed special "sacred" numbers, as relationships between celestial cycles. Stone and earthwork constructions were used, employing simple geometries, lengths to count days and, noticing the properties different numbers have, forging an astronomical world-view.

This world-view has been partially recovered through studying how and why megalithic monuments were built, and by noticing that our oldest religious stories and temple-building cultures conform to astronomical numbers. So long as the Stone Age is considered less knowledgeable, the modern world avoids learning their greatest secret; that the outer planets have become musically harmonious and the inner planets remain a source of creative tension within our oldest stories.

Discover the secrets of Stone Age wisdom with Richard Health in this mind-expanding AOPremium In-Depth Interview.

Richard Heath is a development engineer with degrees in systems science and computer-aided design. After decades of technical and spiritual training, Richard Heath became interested in megalithic astronomy and its numerical skillset. He has written five books on the sacred use of numbers. In Matrix of Creation he explores those found in the planetary world, in Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilization he explores those important to ancient civilizations, and in Precessional Time and the Evolution of Consciousness he examines the numbers that define the important Ages of the world. In Sacred Number and the Lords of Time he provides an alternative history for megalithic astronomy, and in The Harmonic Origins of the World, he explains how the megalithic discovered planetary harmony through counting lunar months, thus explaining why ancient texts were informed by harmonic numbers. He lives in the Preseli Hills of West Wales. | See NumberSciences.org

Richard explores the concept of megalithic astronomy and ancient tuning theory in The Significance of Planetary Harmony: Creating Megalithic Structures Through Music”

Dwaraka, The Golden City of Krishna

Dwaraka, The Golden City of Krishna

Has the sunken ancient Golden City of Krishna been rediscovered?

Located on the west coast of India in the state of Gujarat, the city of Dwaraka is considered one of the seven holy cities of India. Archaeological discoveries of ruins and artifacts off the city’s coast have now conclusively proven what many have long believed: modern Dwaraka is built on the same site as the famed city of the same name from the Puranas and the Mahabharata—the “Golden City” of Lord Krishna.

Its submerged secrets were hidden well by the waters, and the descriptions of the famed Dwaraka were thought to be only a myth and not based on anything real. However, in the 20th century, archaeological and astronomical studies, as well as many maritime explorations, have established the historicity of the city of Dwaraka. The finding of the great city of Dwaraka is a great break-through in shedding light on the history of ancient India and has conclusively proved the historicity of Krishna!

Discover the significance of this underwater find as Vanamali Mataji  is welcomed by Ancient Origins Premium for a fascinating In-Depth Interview.

Mad, Bad, and Deadly: Power in the Hands of Infamous Roman Emperors
Friday June 1, 2018 10:30am EST
by Robert Fabbri
Mad, Bad, and Deadly:  Power in the Hands of Infamous Roman Emperors

Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Hedonistic, debauched, corrupt, sadistic and cruel would describe the 1st-Century Roman Emperors Caligula and Nero.  Both men became rulers of the largest empire in the world in their late teens and neither could manage to keep that power under control. 

Caligula proclaimed himself to be a god, and as a god he could take life at a whim as he pleased, and he did. He turned his palace into a brothel, bedded his sisters and prostituted them. He squandered taxes and would expect Romans to commit suicide and bequeath their estates to the Emperor. 

Nero also practiced omnipotence over life and death.  He divorced his wife and handed her head as a gift to his second. He would use humans as torches at banquets and fornicate with the wives of his senators.

Last man standing after political and literal bloodshed, Vespasian came to power. He possessed a different morality than we would expect in the 21st century; He had the wisdom and survival skills to become a “hero forged in the flames of battle.” Was Vespasian able to bring sanity back to Rome?

Robert Fabbri is the acclaimed author of the Vespasian novels series, and with his outstanding detailed research he manages to create the world of the godlike emperors, when life was at peril of the whims of immature, power crazy, incompetent young men, whose egos were more fragile than a leaf in the wind. Robert joins Ancient Origins Premium for an eye-opening In-Depth Interview.

Robert Fabbri was born in Geneva in 1961. He read Drama and Theatre at London University and worked in film and TV for 25 years as an assistant director. He has worked on productions such as Hornblower, Hellraiser, Patriot Games, and Billy Elliot. His life-long passion for ancient history inspired him to write the Vespasian series. He writes in his study in Berlin surrounded by research books, a load of Historical Fiction, as well as his 3,500 hand-painted lead soldiers. He lives in London and Berlin.  The Vespasian series covers the life of the Roman soldier turned Emperor.  Vespasian survived the reigns of Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius and Nero and commissioned the Colosseum to be built.  Robert Fabbri is also the creator of The Crossroads Brotherhood Trilogy, giving an insight into the life of organized crime and protection in 1st century Rome and the trials and tribulations of Marcus Salvius Magnus, Vespasian’s unofficial bodyguard and friend.   |  Visit RobertFabbri.com
