The Mastery of Self with don Miguel Ruiz Jr.

A Toltec Guide to Freedom

Jun 02 – Jun 07 2019 

Rhinebeck, NY

Take the Toltec apprenticeship journey don Miguel Ruiz Jr. learned from his father, don Miguel Ruiz Sr., and his grandmother, Madre Sarita.

The Mastery of Self uses the wisdom of Toltec philosophy to explain how a person can liberate themselves from illusory beliefs and live with authenticity. The Toltec tradition is an instrument by which life teaches us how to be free and enjoy every moment that life has to give. This is the path that don Miguel Ruiz Jr. took throughout his apprenticeship with his father, don Miguel Ruiz Sr., and his grandmother, Madre Sarita.

Now Ruiz Jr. shares his apprenticeship journey with you through guided exercises, visualizations, and principles he learned throughout his many power journeys to Teotihuacan. This week you learn to:

  • Discern between “who you are” and “what you know”

  • Gain awareness of the way your attachments have created your reality

  • Stop creating your identity based on opinions and judgments of others

  • Let go of the fear of what you are without your beliefs

  • Make new agreements that are more in line with your authentic self
