Sergio Magana (Ocelocoyotl)

Sergio Magana (Ocelocoyotl)  by

Sergio Magana, 'Ocelocoyotl', is a well-known and respected healer in Mexico City, who has been initiated into the 5,000-year-old Toltec or Toltecayotl lineage of Mesoamerica. The tradition began with the ancient
Chichimecas, who transmitted it to Teotihuacans and then Toltecs, who then taught both the Mayans and Aztecs. Sergio is also trained in the Tol shamanic lineage (nahualism) of dreaming knowledge that has been passed on in the oral tradition without interruption from master to student for 1,460 years. The time for these teachings to be unveiled is now and Sergio is one of a few spokespeople asked to share this ancient and hidden wisdom with the world.

This is a guidebook for exploring the Andean Cosmovision. The Cosmovision provides a path for discovering profound aspects of ourselves and the Cosmos. It is a path with a heart.
