Tom SpectorTom Spector began meditating while in graduate school at Yale University in 1968. He realized he had low self-esteem, lots of anger, and was flunking out of an intense, specialized program. Meditation helped him immensely. He began to work out his deep-seated personal growth issues and rapidly became a star student, completing the full Ph.D. program in record time. In 1976, after a magical meeting with Elizabeth Kubler-Ross at a Ram Dass meditation retreat, Tom started sharing the techniques that helped him so much. He continued meditating and teaching, even when he was the International VP For Cancer Research at GlaxoWellcome (now GSK). Tom is internationally regarded as a refreshingly effective meditation teacher. He teaches at many different venues, including meditation retreats, universities, hospitals, corporate firms, and other organizations. Tom also sees individual clients. He has a special gift for helping people discover the root of their suffering and their path to heal. His Meditation and Healing CD and new book, Our Two Gardens: How to Cultivate Healing will be available at the presentations.





Tom lives in North Carolina with his wife, Joanna, who teaches yoga at Duke University and their studio. To learn more about meditation and yoga, visit their website, www.hathahouse.com

The Maya and 2012
with Latin American scholar Robert Sitler

Friday January 27, 2012

Stedman Auditorium on the Duke Center for Living Campus

7:30 -9:00 pm
Robert SitlerRobert Sitler fell in love with the Mayan world 35 years ago while visiting with Ch’ol villagers in the rainforest of Chiapas, Mexico.

He completed a PhD in Hispanic Literatures at the University of Texas-Austin in 1994 with a dissertation on Maya-related Criollo fiction with the late Dr. Linda Schele overseeing the project’s Mayan dimensions.

Dr. Sitlers’ on-going academic passion for things Maya has been complemented by numerous immersion experiences among Maya from a dozen language groups in Guatemala, Mexico and Belize. His primary interests have been the Mam-speaking community of Todos Santos Cuchumatán, Guatemala and the significance of year 2012 in the Mayan Long Count calendar. In 2006 he published the first academic work to focus on the 2012 phenomenon. His CV also includes a 2012 book entitled The Living Maya and a translation into English of the only 2012 book written by a Mayan author.

Robert has published several articles on Mayan literature and 2012, and has been interviewed both on radio and on-line concerning the Maya and their calendars. He lectures regularly about beneficial dimensions of Mayan culture while clarifying common public misconceptions about 2012. Dr. Sitler has worked to include more Mayan perspectives in the discourse concerning the significance of this much-anticipated year.

Robert is currently a Professor of Modern Languages at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida and serves as Director of its Latin American Studies Program, teaching courses in Spanish, Mayan culture and the Latin American humanities.

Does the Maya calendar really predict 2012 apocalypse?

The talk will look at the 2012 phenomenon with a well-grounded approach that relies entirely on sources from within the Mayan world. Learn about what the Maya themselves said about 2012 in the ancient glyphs, in their calendars, and in their Chilam Balam prophecies. Discover what contemporary Mayan elders say regarding the date based on interviews in numerous Mayan linguistic communities in Mexico and Guatemala.

PEG monthly meetings are dedicated to the discussion of psi and consciousness through listening and speaking from personal experiences with a policy of honesty, privacy, and sharing without judgment. Shared experiences have touched on topics such as telepathy, healing, precognition, extended senses, psychokinesis, remote viewing, dreams, haunting, reincarnation, near death experiences, out-of-body experiences, and other unsolved mysteries. As personal stories flow, ideas and inspiration begin to flow for developing our extended psi and for finding creative ways to be of greater service in the larger community.

Facilitators are Pamela St. John and Debi Pratt. For questions or information, please contact: Pamela St. John or call (919) 740-9184
