Let Go of Suffering and Move with Awareness and Wonder

We are thrilled to invite Dr. Will Taegel as our guest teacher for our Austin Toltec Meetup. Will is a beloved elder, co-founder EarthTribe (http://earthtribe.com/) and Dean of the Wisdom School of Graduate Studies for Ubiquity University, and a Toci board member. He is a true gift to everyone who meets him. Don't miss this opportunity to share in Will's wisdom, humor, and clarity.

A few words from Will about our evening together...

"I had the most amazing night last night. I dreamed about you. Really! And about me. And about Earth. And about our suffering. More specifically about our relationship with suffering and pain. Actually, I have been dreaming off and on about suffering ever since
I agreed to talk with you on Oct. 3rd at Toci. Maybe, it is the icy river I have been swimming in all summer speaking to me through the sting of its icy snow melt. Or maybe I feel the same lure to move up the river in a return to home as do the salmon, suffering
or not.

Some might think that these dreams are nightmares if they are about suffering, but not so. Many wise people, including Buddha and Black Elk, think our experience and awareness of suffering is a likely suspect as the crucial state of mind to learn from in our Earth walk, and I now agree. I didn't before I started these dreams, but I do now. When we meet up at TOCI, talk intimately, and experience a different relationship with whatever suffering you and I have; I can almost guarantee you will move differently through life. Better. More fulfilling your potential as a joyful participant in the circle of life. Almost, I can guarantee it, but not quite. You are an important part of the equation. I'll see you there." ~ Will Taegel

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
