Local business, Radiant Health Institute, LLC, hosts an event at The Ivy House at 6385 Ivy Street, Nashville (37209) on Tuesday, May 21 from 7-9pm to screen the award-winning documentary, 2012: THE BEGINNING, with the filmmaker present, Shannon Kring Buset. Admission is $10 per person and RSVPs and questions can be emailed to dez@radiant-health-institute.com.


2012: THE BEGINNING was the most-watched documentary film at MIPDoc Cannes 2012 and highlights experts who reveal Maya Calendar facts and wisdom, and dispel 2012 Maya Doomsday predictions, myths and hype. Learn the truth, end the fear, and celebrate change. Western pop culture has popularized a myth that misrepresents the modern-day Maya. Living Maya believe in celebrating their spirituality and wisdom and sharing it with future generations.

Through interviews with the world’s leading Maya archeologists, scholars, epigraphers, astronomers, shamans, and living Maya, filmmaker Shannon Kring Buset shines a light on the truth behind the Maya doomsday myths and December 21, 2012 predictions. She also provides insights into how anyone, anywhere, can embrace the spiritual teachings of this still awe-inspiring culture in 2013 and beyond.

Kring Buset’s relentless commitment to honoring indigenous Maya wisdom, along with a dedicated production team and a stellar cast of experts, answered her burning question, “What is the truth about the Mayan Calendar and December 21, 2012?” As she and her film crew traveled through six countries, five myths were uncovered and explored.

“Western pop culture has popularized several myths that misrepresent the modern-day Maya, including the Maya doomsday prediction of the end of the world on December 21, 2012,” says Kring Buset. “2012: THE BEGINNING dispels these myths and shares the truth for future generations to learn from and enjoy.”
