"In the Wisdom of the Shamans: What the Ancient Masters Can Teach Us About Love and Life"
by don Jose Ruiz
August 18th at 6:00pm in the Winn Room at the Coronado Public Library
In this book, Toltec shaman and master storyteller don Luis Ruiz shares some of the most popular stories from his family’s oral tradition. For generations, Toltec shamans have passed on their wisdom through storytelling with the purpose to improve the way of life.
The author begins by breaking down the stereotypical image of a “witch doctor”. He explains, that ancient shamans were men and women who fulfilled several vital roles within their communities: philosopher, spiritual guide, medical doctor, psychologist and friend. Their teachings are neither primitive nor reserved for a few chosen, but are accessible and applicable for all.
Exercises, meditations, and shamanic rituals are included in the book to help you, the reader, to experience the personal transformative power that is offered. Shamans teach that the truth you seek lies within.
Don Luis Ruiz was born in Mexico City. At the age of 21 he joined his father, don Miguel Ruiz, the critically acclaimed author of “The Four Agreements.” He is the co-author, with his father, of “The Fifth Agreement.”
The event will take place at the Library’s Winn Room.
