The Toltec Way: A Guide to Personal Transformation by Susan Gregg

When Ellen DeGeneres appeared on Oprah and spoke about the profound changes that certain Toltec principles have made in her life, Dr. Susan Gregg suddenly found herself a beneficiary of that marvelous book-selling phenomena, the Oprah effect.

Dr. Gregg, author of two previous books on shamanism, was deep in the process of writing her latest book. Now in paperback, The Toltec Way is a book created specifically to bring this ancient wisdom to readers in a way that is easily understood and that makes it applicable to modern life.

The gift of the Toltec is in being able to transcend ordinary human awareness and achieve personal freedom. Simply put, personal freedom is the ability to choose how to act rather than react to the events in your life. The three Toltec Masteries of Awareness, Transformation, and Intent are the key to transcending your limitations and experiencing yourself as the creator of your life.

This book is about change and changing yourself. It emphasizes the need to take personal responsibility for the choices in your life. Included in each chapter are exercises and guided visualizations. And, because the wisdom to be learned is often best encountered indirectly, you will find that some of the most important knowledge is hidden in the parablelike stories that are scattered throughout the book.
