Unity presentation to help regain power

Ruiz will speak on his book, “The Five Levels of Attachment,” as part of Unity’s fall series “Wholehearted Living: Experience Your Authentic Self.” Tickets to the event are $20 and can be purchased online at worldhealing.org.

“The Five Levels of Attachment’ is a guide to understanding how we have developed our belief structures and how to go about re-evaluating — or even severing — these harmful attachments,” said Ruiz. “It is important to be aware of where we are on the scale of attachment with any particular belief. With awareness we can regain the power to make our own decisions.”

Ruiz is a Nagual, or Toltec Master of Transformation. He is a direct descendant of the Toltecs of the Eagle Night lineage, and the son of don Miguel Ruiz, author of “The Four Agreements.”
