About the Author

Sheri A. Rosenthal, DPM, is a Toltec Mentor trained by don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements. In the early 2000’s Sheri acted as executive director of Sixth Sun Foundation, a Toltec non-profit corporation where she designed and ran don Miguel’s power journeys and co-taught his workshops. She has lectured and held workshops on the subjects covered in The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Toltec Wisdom, and was appointed a fellow of the Center of Spiritual Life at Eckard College in St. Petersburg, Florida.

More About the Author

My personal adventure began in 1998 when I was going through a challenging time in my life. I realized on some level that I had never been truly happy.

Although I changed: husbands (twice), cities (five moves), podiatric practices (three different offices) and friends (should we go there?), I still had no real joy in my life.

A leap of faith was the last resort - I sold my practice, boy-friend (only kidding), and home - and closed the surgical residency program I was director of (yes, that was a pretty big deal - and yes, the medical community thought I was nuts).

During this time I received a copy of don Miguel Ruiz's NY Times best-selling book ("The Four Agreements®") and decided to go on one of his spiritual journeys to the sacred site of Teotihuacán. The journey was profound - I discovered there wasn't anything outside of myself that needed changing at all - instead it was what I believed about myself and my world that needed work.

It was the first time I realized my pain stemmed from my basic lack of self-love and limiting beliefs. As a result of that journey, I became a student of don Miguel Ruiz for 8 years and later a teacher of this enlightening work that even Oprah was fond of.

Learning from don Miguel inspired me to write several books: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Toltec Wisdom, Banish Mind Spam! and the How to Forgive eCourse an online program.

From 2000 to 2002 I had the privilege to design and run don Miguel Ruiz's spiritual journeys and retreats. It was a fantastic opportunity to wander around the world and learn the travel business at the same time inspiring me to give birth to Journeys of the Spirit® in 2003 (and JOTS® Luxury Travel in 2011).

As a journey leader, speaker and transformational coach for many years now, I have watched people travel to the ends of the earth only to realize that the most profound part of their journey was the internal one - a mysterious adventure of self-discovery that would change their perspective and life forever, and open their heart deeply.

I have been mentoring with Sheri for a little while now, and when I read the book I feel like Sheri is speaking to me.

Sheri Rosenthal has a knack for distilling the essence of the toltec tradition into a delightful and practical guide.

Format: Paperback
Here is an all-embracing collection of Toltec wisdom in a fun, easy-to-use format. To impart this kind of wisdom in an idiot's guide is no easy task, but this intelligent author does it! All of the 25 chapters hook your attention with in-your-face headings and content. This animated guide gives you lots of informational boxes of Toltec Topography, Warrior Wisdom, Warrior Warnings and Impeccable Words, some humorous cartoons, a helpful glossary, and a wealth of other resource and reference material.

In just this one handy book, you will find current information on everything Toltec, past and present. With real-life examples, this guide can expose and challenge your belief systems and fear-based emotions that keep you imprisoned. Toltec Wisdom delivers with authority heart-felt wisdom, experience, and enthusiastic techniques for transcending your mind and cultivating your personal power. It demonstrates the life of a spiritual warrior through the three masteries of Awareness, Transformation and Intent, in practical and encouraging ways that are easy to relate to and very inspiring!

I am delighted with this book, and you will be too. There is no question this is a book to keep, so buy an extra one for giving!

If you read "The Four Agreements" by don Miguel Ruiz and tried to apply those wonderful agreements in you life but kept falling back into the same patterns, this is a book that you have to have. Dr. Sheri Rosenthal has written the practical map to your personal freedom. This book takes you through the history of Toltec philosophy straight to the heart of your own life. Dr. Sheri explains, in clear and concise verbiage, with amazingly close to home examples and explanations, how to apply the principles the four agreements are based on to your own life. If you are ready to create bliss in your life, start here!

I spend my spare time searching for spiritual books or teachings that will help increase my connection to the universe. Unfortunately, most of what I find I cannot recommend. But I highly recommend this book. Sheri Rosenthal has written an excellent book. I tell other spiritual seekers about this book but I don't loan them my copy.

This book is for anyone who wants to improve their own thought processes, change their perceptions and remove the programming in their head that they do not like. I believe that other Toltec teachers like Carlos Castaneda's teachings have great power but they are not very accessible. Of course a Complete Idiot's Guide fixes that by defining things in boxes in the margins. The many techniques in this book are useful. I also loved the chapters on Toltec history and Toltec traditions and teachers.

Wow, what a resource!

One of the many great things in this book is a list of the 52 most prominent books on Toltec wisdom. I've only read 31 of them, but, as far as I know, none do what this book does. It's a complete one-volume survey of the entirety of Toltec wisdom, and that alone makes it potentially the most valuable resource for serious students.

All the other books, and many of them are magnificent, present pieces of the Toltec puzzle, and personal histories of students and teachers. But none other that I know of can sweep you through all of it.

I've read this book once now, but I look forward to a day when my copy is highlighted in four colors, indexed, and has a new, more durable cover (There's nothing wrong with this one. It's just a standard trade paperback cover.), which will last until it becomes a part of my grandchild's library. It's that useful.

That the book is also nicely and clearly written, flavored with the personality of a clear-thinking, well-organized, humorous woman, who is totally on to herself, is a great bonus. It has a quality all too often missing in esoteric literature. You can tell what it means by what it says.

This will be a great intro for the beginning student, but a must have for the serious student. Do not delay. GET IT NOW!

I have to say, I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, even though I knew I would learn alot... well, I was pleasantly surprised by how wonderful this book really is. It breaks down every part of the toltec wisdom that one person can think of, and it is so organized and easy to read. I absolutely love it, and it has helped me to get even more clarity about my mind. I have been mentoring with Sheri for a little while now, and when I read the book I feel like Sheri is speaking to me. Thank you Sheri for being a mirror to me and for writing this book that Im sure will begin to awaken many people. I love you!

Format: Paperback
As an avid reader of Carlos Castaneda's books for many years, I read and reread every one attempting to glean what lessons I could. Unfortunately I was never able to develop a comprehensive personal approach for applying those lessons to my daily life in a meaningful way.

In The Complete Idiot's Guide to Toltec Wisdom Sheri Rosenthal has distilled those many and varied teachings into one practical, easy to understand and implement, and inspiring guide. She presents the Toltec teachings in such a clear and logical manner that anyone, whether on the path or not, can use her book as a framework to add meaning and happiness to their everyday lives.

If you're searching for a guide to help you find peace, happiness, and freedom; congratulations - you've found it. Thanks Sheri!
