Join Don Jose Ruiz and Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. in this power journey of the Toltec tradition. Over the weekend, you will be empowered with tools to activate your inner wisdom for overcoming the obstacles in your life that are holding you back from being the love of your life and living your true authentic Self. Unlike some forms of shamanism, the Toltec tradition places a special emphasis on unconditional love and personal healing. When armed with love and healing, we create transformation in ourselves and the world.

Don Jose Ruiz and Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. will teach you how to:

  • Become aware of how to differentiate “who you are” from “what you know”
  • Gain awareness of how your agreements have created your reality
  • Let go of the fear of what you are without your beliefs
  • Create a happier and more rewarding story for yourself
  • Make new agreements that are more in line with your true authentic Self

In this experience, each teacher will bring their own wisdom to share…

Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. will share the lessons from his new book, The Mastery of Life: A Toltec Guide to Personal Freedom. His book represents the personal journey, or quest, that we all undertake to find our own personal freedom. He will explain, based on his family’s Toltec Tradition, how the sacred pyramids and plazas of Teotihuacan act as symbolic stops on the transformative path of Toltec warriors. Those who apply the teachings of the Toltecs in their own lives will learn to let go of their domestication, false fear, and self-judgment. At the same time, you will be guided on your own inner journey towards healing, acceptance, and love. Experience firsthand the transformative power of the Toltec teachings. Learn through practical exercises and reflections designed to help you find peace and personal freedom in your own life, right now.

Don Jose Ruiz, a Toltec Master of Transformation and a modern-day shaman, has dedicated his life to sharing the wisdom of the ancient Toltec through his books, lectures, and journeys to sacred sites around the world. He will be discussing and teaching methods to apply messages from his books, The Medicine Bag: Shamanic Rituals and Ceremonies for Personal Transformation and his new release, Shamanic Power Animals. Don Jose will show you how to create your life from the point of view of Toltec Nagualism (animal shapeshifting) and use these ancient tools in our modern-day world. This ancient wisdom will show you how to make your life a masterpiece of art and become your own dream master.

“Mastery refers to that which we practice regularly. In these pages, I ask you to take a deep look at what you believe about yourself and the world around you, and to notice what you habitually do—how you act and react based on what you believe. Then, once you have become more aware of what you think, how you act, and where those thoughts and actions originate, I invite you to practice new ways of thinking, acting, and being that are more aligned with your true nature and your highest good.  The greatest journey you can take is the one within yourself.” —Don Miguel Ruiz Jr., The Mastery of Life: A Toltec Guide to Personal Freedom

“The truth is that it’s only when we change ourselves that we change the world.” Don Jose Ruiz, Shamanic Power Animals
