The Four Agreements Women's Circle
The Four Agreements:
The Toltec lived in central Mexico, and their traditions were those of education and passing knowledge down to the next generation. The Four Agreements shows how the Toltec concepts and ideas can help us realize our full potential as well-balanced and happy people, and how to remove the weight of other people’s expectations of us.
Ruiz(author of " The Four Agreements) tells us that we are all taught strict rules as children, which we make ourselves live by as adults. The society we live in imposes many things upon us, including the collective ‘dream of the planet’. The rules of this collective dream are impressed upon us by our parents, schools, religions and other influences. We learn how we are meant to behave through this, and what we should believe and accept as normal. Ruiz says that because we didn’t choose these rules and agreements, we should question why we accept and live by them.
As children, if we rebelled or behaved “badly” we were punished by parents and other authority figures for not following the rules. When we were “good”, we got attention and praise from parents and others.
The Four Agreements shows us that there is a different way. By breaking free from the societal structures and expectations, we can make new agreements for ourselves.
In our women's circle we will explore the 4 agreements through conversation, meditation, group activities, journaling and so much more!
Join us Monday's at 7:30pm in Northwest Edmonton(near North Pointe Church) starting Monday November 25
