BEYOND 2012:
Catastrophe or Ecstasy – A Complete Guide to End-of-Time Predictions

by Geoff Stray

Edited by Andy Thomas

According to ancient calendars, 21st December 2012 ushered in a ‘New Era’ of rapid global change and a shift in consciousness. What were the exact prophecies? How many cultures share the predictions? What modern science exists to back them up? What should we really expect of this New Era?

This classic book, by one of the most respected scholars of ancient cycles and predictions, has been acclaimed as the definitive guide to the prophecies for our times, and the answers to all these questions, and many more, can be found here.

According to the ancient calendars of the Maya, the world as we knew it ended on 21st December 2012, when we entered the new ‘Creation’ predicted by many ancient cultures. The world didn’t literally end, as the media joked that it would, and a few doom-mongers thought it might, but instead the day which marked the turning of a 5,125-year cycle ushered in a period that the prophecies suggest will bring rapid and enormous change for the world on a physical, social and spiritual level. Many people believe the years following 2012 could be the most pivotal time in modern history, and so far they seem to have been… Will they bring global catastrophe or spiritual transformation?

Investigations have revealed that several civilisations across the world have calendars, myths, prophecies and visions connected with this ancient cycle, all of which are sifted here with balance and fascinating analysis. First published in 2005, this edition is the 2009 version with a revised cover.

Geoff Stray has studied the meaning of ancient cycles since 1982. In September 2000 he made his work available through the website Diagnosis2012, which quickly became renowned as the most comprehensive database on the subject. Also compiling his work into a booklet, Beyond 2012, this eventually grew to become the book version, which in turn became one of the most important texts on the subject. Geoff is also author of The Mayan Calendars, 2012 in Your Pocket and Mendip Madness, amongst other works.



“What an incredible piece of work… an honest masterpiece… Simply and overwhelmingly impressive. Everyone needs to read this book” (Vincent Bridges, co-author of The Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye)
“This is a beautiful book and it belongs in any serious thinker’s library. No expense has been spared in its production – it even smells good… This is a scrupulously researched book, and the production values are very high.” (Zyzygyz, moderator and owner of the Time Wave Zero discussion group)
“The book is fantastic!!! Unbelievable!!! Applause, applause… Just from leafing through it I loved it already, and on further perusal, I loved it even more. Great Book!!!” (Jonathan Bethel, webmaster of Omega Point Institute and
“This book is blowing me away… Rest assured that someday, very soon, this monograph will be coveted for its vast collection of insights. Beyond 2012 will continue to be everyone’s cross reference of ideas as they follow their individual path.” (Joel Keene, author of Cosmic Locusts: The 2012 Convergence of Nostradamian, Mayan and Biblical Prophecy)
“If a ‘Golden Age’ is meant to become manifest… Stray helps us sort the wheat from the chaff to increase the quality of our understanding.” (Nexus Magazine)
“In Beyond 2012, a rather dizzying smorgasbord of scenarios that may greet us on the winter solstice of that year is offered. Fortunately, the author doesn’t fearmonger in his response to the advanced waves coming in from galactic central. He pretty much allows the reader sufficient headspace to contemplate the myriads of potential outcomes at hand… Beyond 2012 can be used as a kind of useful field guide to orient us in the right direction, if we approach it with an open mind and much discretion as well.” (Jaye Beldo, Paranoia Magazine)
