A bit dated, but the following article is on the topic of 2012.
Daniel Pinchbeck- Modern Shamanism and Reality Bending
By Preston Peet
February 5, 2007
Published in High Times Magazine
To many, Daniel Pinchbeckis one of this generation's closest thing to Terrance McKenna. Already well known and respected by many for traveling the world ingesting just about every psychedelic, mind-expanding substance known to man, [as detailed in his first book, Breaking Open the Head- a Psychedelic Journey into the Heart of Contemporary Shamanism] Pinchbeck is a leading visionary when it comes to the possibilities inherent in exploring our inner spaces, as well as an enthusiastic proponent of consciously thinking a positive world into reality.
Pinchbecks latest book, 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, takes a good hard look at the state of the world today-the massive destruction humankind is doing to the planet, and the possibility that we may be reaching the point where, as the Mayan calendar predicts, a cosmic change or even the end of time- could rapidly be approaching. Whether this means an end to the human race or merely the end of our current destructive habits and outlooks, has yet to be determined.
I had the pleasure of meeting with Pinchbeck after an event at the Gershwin Hotel in Manhattan, where he read selected excerpts from his newest book, accompanied by a musical ensemble playing trippy, ethereal music. The reading was followed by an intense dialouge, during which he and the audience discussed shamanism, apocalyptic visions, the evolution of consciousness, and the end of the Mayan Calendar in the year 2012.

Subject: [Ibogaine] 2012 mayan calendar
I have always been interested in the Mayan prophercy of "the end of the world" in 2012; wondering how things would play out; if it would be some thing that would apply to South America or literally the whole world. Recently I was watching an unrelated documentary on the Amazon river; according to the documentary there are plans to dam the river which would cause all kinds of problems. I cant remember if this was to start in 2010 or 2012 but I could see how this can seriously affect things on a planetary level.
For those who are not all that familiar with the Mayan calendar the 21 Dec. 2012 ends the cycle of what was called the long count when the earth completes the wobble on its axis and aligns with the sun and the center of the milky way. The Maya were obsessed with math and were equal to if not more advanced than ourselves now.
