Synopses & Reviews
Change is a constant, defining characteristic of life.
Seasons change, weather changes, leaves change, and so do people. In HeatherAsh Amara's The Toltec Path of Transformation: Embracing the Four Elements of Change, we are encouraged to embrace the changes in our lives and create the kind of change that we want to see in ourselves and our world.
The Four Elements: air, fire, water and earth--all carry specific properties and functions that can lead to a complete life transformation along the Toltec path.
- Air represents our mental body, and grants clear perceptions once we shift our focus from the negativity surrounding us to the love and gratitude that lie just below the surface.
- Fire, the energetic body, gives us the opportunity to clean out the agreements, behaviors and beliefs that no longer serve us, so that we can make room for new, beneficial connections.
- Water, the emotional body, encourages us to open to new things, people and experiences. By staying open, we can gracefully accept what life brings while still working to create our own changes.
- Earth, the physical body, acts to nourish us from the inside out, proving again that both beauty and health start from within.
It is through HeatherAsh's carefully composed instruction and guidance that we can use the Four Elements of Change to navigate the Toltec Path into our Divine center, where comparison and judgment drop away, and we can meet ourselves as the beautiful beings that we were meant to be.

In The Toltec Guide of Transformation
, Heather Ash Amara shares heartfelt shamanic wisdom on how to live a centered life, even in the midst of change.
The basic premise here is that if any of us are interested in transforming our lives and consciously manifesting what we truly desire(whether it is enlightenment, living to our true potential, or even doing better in school), we must learn to live in balance with the four elements that are the foundation of life: air, earth, water, and the sun.
Drawing on the ancient wisdom of the Native American peoples (in particular the Toltecs), Ash Asmara provides a practical and concrete daily practice for readers. She provides exercises, tasks, visualizations, and personal stories that give the reader daily access to shamanic wisdom. This is a guide for grounding, growth, and transformation.
