Crossing over to the shaman’s world
A JOURNEY TO MEXICO
A 10 days / 11 nights journey thru the land of the ancient Toltecs
April 29 – May 10, 2024
“The Nagual told us that we are Toltecs. All of us are Toltecs. He said that a Toltec is the receiver and holder of mysteries. The Nagual and Genaro are Toltecs. They gave us their special luminosity and their mysteries. “
Carlos Castaneda – The Second Ring of Power
A long time ago the people living in central America developed a certain kind of knowledge. Those men and women, receivers and holders of mysteries, were known as Toltecs.
The world of the Toltecs is long gone but one can still find remainings of it in the land of Mexico : many ancient ceremonial places such as Theotihuacan, Cholula, Tula, Monte Alban … still attest of the existence of their civilisation.
And they not only left us magnificient sites but some of their knowledge managed to reach to us thru time.
This knowledge had to do with acknowledging and cultivating the link with the transcendental aspect of human beings.
As Carlos Castaneda writes :
Every Toltec warrior had two faces and faced two opposite directions. The second face was the second attention.
This ability to integrate both aspects of human being : the rational / social aspect and the trancendant or energetic aspect gave to this civilisation a particular brillance.
Until today it is possible to feel and connect to the extraordinary vitality of those ancient seers and to the force of their incarnation on this planet.
During a 10 days / 11 nights journey thru Mexico : from Mexico city to Oaxaca and back to Mexico City, we will walk on the land of the Toltecs and connect to this Toltec heritage.
This journey will start with a set of online meetings in March and April in which we will learn and practice a series of movements from the Toltec tradition, and prepare to cross over, as a group, to the Toltecs’ world.
During the journey itself, we will take some time everyday to practice those movements and notice and share our perceptions with each others.
