FREE TOLTEC MEETUP: Who is this mysterious character we call the shadow and what can you learn from it? The shadow holds a great deal of wisdom and power - power that belongs to you. But what is this power and how do you take it back? Join Toltec teacher West Short, who has worked extensively with the Four Agreements and the shadow, for an introductory talk that will focus on the basics of becoming aware of your shadow, stalking it and taking your power back from it.
About West: More than 10 years ago, some events happened in my life that made me to question everything that I believed. I ended up finding solace in a spiritual path, and began working with my uncle, a spiritual teacher and healer. Although he did not reveal it to me for many years, he was what the Toltecs call a nagual, or spiritual leader. One of the very first books he gave me to read was The Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz. This book provided wisdom that seemed very simple at first and easy to understand. The more I learned, however, the more I understood the tremendous depth of the teachings in this book. I went on to read many other books on Toltec wisdom, including the rest of Ruiz' books, the teachings of Carlos Castaneda, Dr. Susan Gregg, Theun Mares, HeatherAsh Amara, and others. I have also worked with other Toltec teachers, and have taken both casual and intensive courses on Toltec wisdom and teachings, including Toci's SpiritWeavers apprenticeship and PUMA. Of all the work I have done, stalking the entity known as the shadow has been the most consistently transformative in my life. After 10+ years of studying and practicing this medicine, I'm ready to share it with others.
