Talk about your brand

The original cultures of the territory now called Mexico, before the arrival of European Christianity, forged a knowledge and philosophy that has survived to this day through different indigenous communities.
Western thought considers these peoples and their traditions to be exotic, on the one hand attributing "magical powers" to their practices, which constitutes an abusive and superficial relationship, while at the same time subjecting them to systemic material poverty. 

There are concrete proposals for practices emanating from this philosophy that are anchored in the relationship with nature and far from magical thinking. Since it is a system of practices, it is not necessary to have faith, nor to believe in God to try them and obtain concrete results.

Although the system of practices on which my work is based has its roots in what we can generically call Toltec philosophy; which to a large extent is preserved in many of the practices of the Wirrarika and other groups of Nahuatl descent, its modern expression adapted to human development is contained in the works and workshops of Mexican writer and researcher Victor Sanchez, who has developed and shared these practices through an organization and methodologies known as "The Art of Living Purposefully" and particularly in his books.
