When Miguel was a young boy, his grandfather told him many stories of the Toltec Tradition. A powerful one was the Story of The Sleeping Giant, a symbol for an unaware humanity.
One day this giant will awaken in Mexico, and awareness will spread throughout the world. Humanity will return to its full potential.
As any child who hears stories in the early years, Miguel forgot and years went by before this story surfaced again. On his honeymoon, Miguel and his bride sat on top of the Pyramid of the Sun, over looking the sacred grounds of Teotihuacan. Then, Miguel saw the giant clearly laid out as a snake with two heads, and he realized that this site was a 2500 year old map for enlightenment. The path begins in one of the heads, out through the second head and finally onto the Pyramid of the Sun.
The name Teotihuacan means 'The place where humans awake and become God'.
This Journey of Enlightenment in Teotihuacan, awakening the snake within each of his apprentices, has been Miguel’s body of work since that day in 1987.
Now the time has come for humanity as a whole to awaken to its full awareness, it's time to fully awaken the giant.
December 21st, 2012 is the end of the Mayan calendar. Mythology says this is the end of the world. Truth is that this day is like any New Years Eve, it will come and it will go and nothing will happen...
... unless we make it happen.
Miguel's invitations is for us all to agree that this indeed is the end of the world... as we know it.
'Let's utilize this unique moment in time. Let's all agree that this is the end of an era living in fear and fanaticism, and instead the beginning of a new era living in truth... and then let's act on this new agreement... the world will change with this new awakened humanity.
Please help join me in this change, by changing your own world.'

The trip is an event where don Miguel, don Jose and don Miguel Jr speak, give exercises, assign homework (the fun, short and reflective type).
Typically there is a high level of direct interaction between the family and the participants. It is much more involved than a class, lecture or a workshop and provides you with an extensive level of emersion into the teachings being offered.
The basic itinerary for each day is usually around a two hour talk in the morning, then spending the day in the pyramids doing inner work and learning and healing experiences with the Ruiz familiy and his team, and another two hour talk in the evening.
However, they teach through inspiration so this is always subject to change. If you notice, we never publish a detailed program schedule for any event. The reason is that our trip leaders teach from Spirit as it guides them, and that is always changing! Depending on the group energy, the program may shift in any direction.
Please trust that magic will happen at every event and put your "voice of knowledge" and "need to know" at rest. Be assured that we have a wonderful journey planned for you!
