The Toltec Medicine Wheel

The art of knowing how to live’

The Toltec Medicine Wheel (4 cosmic consciousnesses) offers us to seek our balance and perception from our inner center, opening us to the four directions of the universe (South, North, West and East).

Likewise finding the benefit for our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body. It allowing us to be in harmony with ourselves and with everything that surrounds us as we pass through our venerable beloved Earth called ‘Tonanzin Talli”

  • How should I go?

  • Shall I leave nothing behind me on earth?

  • How should my heart act?

  • Do we come to live in vain?

“Let’s at least leave flowers, let’s at least leave songs”

You can bring: flowers, seeds and/or fruit for the altar, white clothes and food to share


The Toltecs 

Much has been written about the Toltecs and in truth little is known about them.

They say that the Toltecs were “a people” or “a culture”, , but the truth is that the

Toltecs were a lineage of knowledge of the ancestral wisdom of the Cem Anahuac, name given to the world of the Nahuas/Mexicas (Indigenous people of Mexico).

Toltec was a degree of knowledge of the Toltecayotl.

What was the Totecayotl?

  • …. It was the art of living in balance, the philosophical thought that gave meaning to existence.

  • For the natives, Toltecayotl represented the pinnacle of their worldview.

  • The Toltec is, symbolically, the artist among artists, the one who makes one’s own faces and true hearts emerge, the one who illuminates like a smoking torch, the teacher among teachers…

  • There existed in the Cem Anahuac a group of Toltecs from all towns and cultures.

These men and women of knowledge studied and practiced the knowledge of the Toltecayoti. The irradiation center of Toltecayotl was Tenotihuacan, the place where human beings achieved divinity.

For the Toltecayotl, the human being is metaphorically divided into four parts starting from its center. From the navel to the head it symbolizes heaven and the spirit; It is represented with the quetzal, the most beautiful bird that remotes the heights desired by human beings.
