Beyond Fear: A Toltec Guide to Freedom and Joy – The Teachings of Don Miguel Ruiz

More expansive and in-depth than The Four Agreements, Beyond Fear contains information on life after death, prophecies about the evolution of humanity, and exercises and ceremonies to walk readers through the process of shedding fear and becoming spiritually and emotionally alive.

Fear is the source of all of the negative agreements we’ve made with life. It can alienate us from the joy that is our birthright. When we are able to look at our lives without fear or judgments, we realize that reality can be whatever we want it to be. Beyond Fear leads seekers of the Toltec way of freedom and joy on their spiritual journey into a state of empowerment.

In order to practice the Four Agreements, before we can achieve the Mastery of Love, we must move Beyond Fear. Fear is the source of all the negative agreements we’ve made with life. It can alienate us from the joy that is our birthright. When we are able to look at our lives and our worlds without fear or judgments, we realize that this dream we are dreaming – reality – can be whatever we want it to be.

It has been my privilege to know don Miguel Angel Ruiz, and his lovely wife Gaya, for several years. Miguel and I have shared numerous conversations in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico, and in Teotihuacan, Mexico.

On each occasion I became aware, for the duration of our talk, that we had been in another dimension where the possiblities for transformation are boundless. In this other place, where Gaya also dwells, affirmation, a positive viewpoint and a profoundly holistic sense of the sacred prevail. My task has been to collect, record and shape don Miguel’s wisdom.

Though I am neither an apprentice nor a shaman, through the years of writing this book my imagination has been penetrated by nagualism with its eternal promise of heaven on earth, and I am grateful.

Don Miguel Ruiz, trained as a medical doctor and surgeon, is also a nagual (one with the ability to guide others to spirit), initiated as a Master of Intent in the Toltec tradition. His wisdom derives from a vision of Teotihuacan, “the place where Men become Gods.” Seekers of the Toltec way to freedom and joy follow a ritual procession along the main passageway in Teotihuacan as they move beyond fear into a state of empowerment. Many students have made this journey with don Miguel. This comprehensive guide to the teachings of don Miguel Ruiz includes:

  • the basic elements of Toltec wisdom and the spiritual practice that is the basis of The Four Agreements
  • Tools for Transformation – exercises and ceremonies to walk readers through the process of shedding fear, judgment, and guilt
  • an imaginary journey to Teotihuacan, the sacred center of nagual teaching
  • information on life after death, and prophecies about the evolution of humanity
  • biographical information on don Miguel Ruiz and his training with his curandera mother, the famous healer, Mother Sarita

The knowledge contained in this life-changing volume has the power to replace fear with joy.
