2012: Crossing the Bridge to the Future is an engaging personal narrative through the author’s apprenticeship with master astrologer William Lonsdale who teaches him how to access a source of great power and creativity buried within the human soul.
The book begins in August 1987 on the slopes of Mount Shasta in Northern California as Borax witnesses the Harmonic Convergence, a spiritual and astrological event sparking a 26-year countdown to 2012, the year that marks the “end of history” in the Mayan calendar. Signs indicate that a “major energy shift” is occurring, a turning point in Earth’s collective karma powerful enough to change the global perspective of humankind.
Borax’s mountaintop experiences compel him to seek solutions to his personal turmoil. He meets Lonsdale and together they launch a mystery school to study how the twenty-five-year period between 1987 and 2012 can be used for a cosmic purging of negativity to release humanity’s core forces and restore universal balance. En route, Borax and his fellow students discover truths about life after death, karma, reincarnation, past lives, human evolution, and the purpose of our existence on earth. In the tradition of The Teachings of Don Juan, Carlos Castaneda’s tales of his shamanic master, 2012: Crossing the Bridge to the Future is a gripping sorcerer’s apprentice story driven by mystical forces, encouraging readers to expand their everyday awareness and challenge their fundamental beliefs about their place in the universe.

When I got this book I attempted to read it but when compared to Carlos Castaneda, Timothy Leary and Aldous Huxley the book is not even the same league. Needless to say I cannot recommend this book. Read full review

A poor imitation of Danial Pinchbeck's much better (and better researched) book on 2012. The author seems more interested recounting his drug-induced adventures which, let me assure him, are not as ... Read full review

Mark Borax studied astrology with Ellias Lonsdale (called William Lonsdale in the book) and was part of the original mystery school that Lonsdale founded in the Santa Cruz Mountains in northern California in the 1980s. Mark Borax went on to develop Soul Level Astrology, a new form of astrology that looks deeper into the nature of the soul than traditional approaches.
