But what we may not realize is that each one of these agreements represents an attachment, a limiting filter on who we think we are, and what the future could hold. We call these attachments “knowledge” without ever questioning if that knowledge is necessarily true for us. The Five Levels of Attachment: Toltec Wisdom For a Modern World ($18.95) by don Miguel Ruiz, Jr. is a guide to understanding how we have developed our belief structures and how to go about re-evaluating—or even severing—these harmful attachments.Register now for this limited space workshop!

He is a direct descendant of the Toltecs of the Eagle Knight lineage and is the son of don Miguel Ruiz.
