International bestselling author and spiritual teacher, Don Miguel Ruiz, has shared his family’s teachings globally through the books of Toltec wisdom which have sold over 10 million copies alone in the United States, and been published in 40 languages worldwide. His sons Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. and Don Jose have joined together for this unique workshop to share the wisdom from The Mastery of Love book in which Don Miguel Ruiz illuminates the fear-based beliefs and assumptions that undermine love and lead to suffering and drama in our relationships.
Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. and Don Jose will share their family’s Toltec tradition that gave shape to their father’s books, and will show you how to heal from emotional wounds, and recover the freedom and joy that are a part of your birthright, thus restoring the spirit of playfulness that is vital for love to blossom in relationships.
Ultimately, we all wish to enjoy life. There are many facets in our everyday experience that allow us to express this joy. One of those ways is through the relationships we have with the people in our lives. In the Toltec family tradition, the Mastery of Love begins by bringing harmony into our most impactful relationship, the one with ourselves. This mastery gives us the opportunity to share that harmony with everyone in our life.
The workshop will cover:
Why “domestication” and the “image of perfection” lead to self-rejection
The war of control that slowly destroys most relationships
Why we learned to hunt for love in others, and how to release the love inside us
How to finally accept and forgive ourselves and others
Re-discover the love of your life
Don Miguel Jr. and Don Jose Ruiz will teach you how to empower yourself and step into masterful levels of faith and authenticity. Their brilliant teachings will help you to move beyond doubt and let go of the lies that create emotional drama, victimization, and the limiting belief systems that programmed our “domestication”.
This life-changing program will help you to return to your innate wisdom, and live your life based on truth. They will help you understand that the agreements we make are ultimately about seeing our whole reality through the eyes of truth. The result of practicing these agreements helps you to move into complete acceptance of yourselves just the way you are, and the complete acceptance of everybody else just the way they are. The reward for doing that is your eternal happiness.
Don Miguel Jr. and Don Jose Ruiz will teach you to:
Become aware of how you confuse what you know, for who you are
Gain awareness of how your agreements have created your reality
Release the fear of what you are without your beliefs
Let go of conditional love and embrace unconditional love
Make new agreements that are more in line with your true authentic self
