2 Hour Keynote with Q&A

Sacred Technologies and the Mastery of Time

Most of us are taught that both time and “progress” are linear, and that the only way we can move on this planet is forward. In this workshop, Dr. Alberto Villoldo will explore this idea in comparison to shamanic teachings and share some indigenous stories of creation that speak about the Mastery of Time. As you will learn, some ancient sages and shamans believed they could influence events that occurred in the past and nudge destiny, and that time was neither fluid nor fixed. This presentation will explore the questions: Is it possible that the river of time does not flow in only one direction? Are there ancient technologies that can help guide our world now to a healed and sustainable destiny for humanity’s future? Join us to find out. 

don Miguel Ruiz Jr

At the age of 14, don Miguel Jr. apprenticed to his father don Miguel Sr. and his grandmother, Madre Sarita. From that early age, he was called upon to translate Madre Sarita’s prayers, lectures and workshops from Spanish into English. In this way, through constant repetition and review, he learned the content of her teachings in both languages.
Through interpreting for Madre Sarita, don Miguel Jr. came to understand the power of faith. He saw first-hand how she manifested her intent to heal people, both physically and spiritually.
don Miguel Jr.’s apprenticeship lasted 10 years. When he reached his mid-20’s, his father intensified his training. At the apex of this power journey, don Miguel said to his eldest son, “Find your way out. Go home and master Death by becoming alive.”
For the past six years, don Miguel Jr. has applied the lessons learned from his father and grandmother to define and enjoy his own personal freedom while achieving peace with all of creation.
Today, don Miguel Jr. is married and has two young children. And so, as a Nagual he begins once again to pass along the wisdom and the tools of his family’s traditions in helping others to achieve their own personal freedom and optimal physical and spiritual health.
Miguel Jr. has taken the lessons of his father and grandmother and discovered his own personal freedom. Being able to apply his teachings to the world around him gave Miguel Jr. a new understanding of the lessons his father and grandmother had passed onto him, once again giving him the desire to pass on his beliefs. After decades of training, Miguel Jr. was finally ready to share everything he had learned. As a Nagual, he now helps others discover optimal physical and spiritual health, so that they may achieve their own personal freedom.
He is the author of The Five Levels of Attachment, Living a Life of Awareness, The Mastery of Self—A Toltec Guide to Freedom, Don Miguel Ruiz’s Little Book of Wisdom, and co-author of The Seven Secrets of a Healthy, Happy Relationship, with HeatherAsh Amara.

The Mastery of Life, a Journey to your Heart

Drawing from his new book, The Mastery of Life, don Miguel Ruiz Jr will lead you on a metaphysical journey through the Ancient Pyramid complex at Teotihuacan and explain how in the Toltec tradition of his family, the plazas and pyramids found here can be understood as symbolic stops along the path to personal freedom and self-realization for Toltec Warriors—those who apply the teachings of the Toltecs in their own lives to win the inner war against the forces of domestication, fear, and self-judgment. Miguel will also share how the key to overcoming these forces can be found in the wisdom of your own heart, if only you are willing to listen.

don José Ruiz

don Jose Ruiz was born in Mexico City, Mexico and was raised in Tijuana, Mexico. When he was 21 he came to live in the U.S. with his father, don Miguel Ruiz. From a very young age don Jose was guided by many teachers present in his life including, his mother and father, his grandmother Sarita, and several other Naguals.

Through masterful guidance by his teachers and amazing life experiences with precision synchronicity, Jose came to ‘silent knowledge’; he witnessed the world as it is, without any story. In his early twenties, don Jose lost his eyesight. In his process of surrendering, he learned the value of learning to listen; to listen to his inner wisdom and integrity and to see different perspectives, while knowing nothing is personal. He had a renewed love and gratitude for life ~ and he found acceptance, happiness and abundance; he found bliss. He grasped a true understanding of faith, love, gratitude and humility. Through his surrender and faith, in concert with modern medicine Jose recovered his eyesight.

He is the author of The Wisdom of the Shamans,The Medicine Bag, and Shamanic power Animals.
