As I looked back over my journey from fear to love, I discovered Twelve Keystones that I had to embody, or perhaps I should say master, so that I could reclaim my happiness and awaken to the truth of my magnificence. Through teaching about my experiences, I found they apply universally. I have shared them here! You are the playwright of your own life! The backdrop for life is like a Magical Theatre, and as the star of the production, we are each free to create our own roles, changing them at will but first we need to investigate the myth, truth,… Read more.

Gini Gentry’s teachings stem from the heart of Toltec wisdom while at the same time embracing the unity of truth held within all the mystery traditions. She is committed to revealing the love, honest reflection, and outrageous joy that is our divine birthright with a provocative and often humorously entertaining style.
Gini first met don Miguel Ruiz in 1988. Several years later she was approached and asked to manage don Miguel after his wife Gaya dreamed Gini would expose his work to the masses. Gini accepted the position, and immersed herself in the work. As she personally deepened into the knowledge of the Toltec tradition, she organized and expanded the reach of the teachings including developing “power journeys” with Ruiz for thousands of followers to locations such as Hawaii, Peru, Egypt, Greece, Canada and many sacred sites in Mexico, including Teotihuacan, the heart of the Toltec tradition.
After a few short years, Gini became the Nagual Woman (female spiritual leader) in the Toltec lineage brought forward by Ruiz. Working with don Miguel as his teaching partner, they traveled the world reaching thousands of people through lectures, workshops and journeys to sacred sites.
As once prophesized, Gini became the marketing mastermind that brought Miguel’s teaching to the public. She found the perfect ghostwriter/publisher in Janet Mills and served as the content editor of the New York Times bestseller The Four Agreements.
While Ruiz’s fame began its meteoric rise, Gini built a retreat center at her ranch near Santa Fe, New Mexico, to expand her personal teachings with student residency programs and workshops. Known for combining her unique empathic abilities and interest in the feminine face of the Great Mystery, Gini enjoys success on talk-radio and as a featured speaker at new-thought conferences. Gini continues to combine her unique blend of knowledge through her blog, workshops, and several annual guided journeys to sacred sites around the world.
Gini is the author of Dreaming Down Heaven, available on September 29, 2010 and is featured in the documentary Dreaming Down Heaven slated to be released later this year. She continues to share her unique blend of knowledge through guided journeys to sacred sites around the world, her much followed teachings on Facebook, workshops and personal intensives. Her website www.dreamingdownheaven.com includes direct links to You Tube videos of her teachings at Teotihuacan. When not traveling to share the love, Gini lives and teaches at the Garden of the Goddess Retreat Center in New Mexico.

“I don’t know how I am ever going to do my spiritual journey when I am so stuck in judging my physical appearance.” ~ Cindy, Santa Fe, NM Dear Cindy, Our bodies continue to serve us to the best of their ability, regardless of how often we have cast blame in their direction for failures in our love life, sports life and inner life. Love does not arise out of body image. But we can keep love away by continuing to deprive ourselves of self-love. It’s not the size of our body parts, it’s the size of our issues that count!… Read more.
Free yourself from judgment. Each judgment you have is a complaint with the Divine Mystery. Let go of your attachment to being right. This doesn’t mean you can’t be right, only that you can’t keep score. Let go of your attachment to being wrong. Scrutinizing your actions to identify your “mistakes” is a justification for self-judgment. The opposite of being wrong and the opposite of being right is the same-just being. Stop trying to fix yourself. You are not broken, you don’t need repairing, and you don’t need to try harder. All you need to do is accept yourself as you are. Get over thinking… Read more.
