A request for workshops in your local area. Part of why I created the Self Mastery on line study course at www.PathwayToHappiness.com
I recently purchased the book Beyond Fear. I have found that Don MIguel’s words speak to me on a very deep level. I had no idea that the ancient people of my country had such a rich spiritual tradition of their own. I’m thinking that it would probably have been better to start off reading The Four Agreements first, but I guess I can just make that my next book.
Anyway, I am really interested in working with a spiritual guide, one who can teach me on Toltec Wisdom. I live in Wisconsin, and I notice that most workshops, events, etc are not in my area. Do you have any suggestions on where to start?
Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time. — Dan
I don’t think there is a wrong order to reading don Miguel’s material. Just add his other books to your list.
I live in California so I’m not local to your area. However I do travel for events. If people wish to create a workshop or event in their area and invite me to teach and share, then I will do so. Aside from that, no there are not a lot of teachers of his work. He taught a small group of people very intensely, focusing on quality more than quantity. Even then, most of those people don’t teach as they choose to do other things with their life. Some are doctors, lawyers, yoga teachers, graphic artists, or raising their children.
Not having a widespread cadre of teachers has been a problem for a while. One that has improved greatly since I started when it was just don Miguel in a limited number of locations. It is something that I began addressing by putting a lot of material on line. It’s at my other site http://pathwaytohappiness.com/index.htm
Where to start?
I suggest here – http://pathwaytohappiness.com/insights.htm
This page has a lot of free audio. They are from my free podcasts. You can also find them on iTunes in the Self Help section. Search under “Happiness through Self Awareness”
The free audio addresses the lay of the land in terms of beliefs, emotions, will power, perception, assumptions etc that make up our minds. The Self Mastery sessions are the action steps of what to do. You will find entry to that work on this page. http://pathwaytohappiness.com/self_mastery.htm
This is where the real work is done. These are specific exercises and practices that I have put together based on my years of study with don Miguel, and teaching my own clients. It is a paced on line audio workbook process where you learn many skills to gain control over your attention, raise your awareness, and inventory and change your core beliefs.
For people who are more focused, or want specific guidance, I also do coaching over the phone. Often this is in support or in addition to the exercises people are doing from my Self Mastery program.
Hope that helps. Send me an email if you have any questions.
For specific exercises for identifying and dissolving fear based beliefs based in the Four Agreements, begin with the free practices in the Self Mastery audio program.
