The Toltec were revered for their spiritual teachings: the word “Toltec,” according to Don Miguel Ruiz, means “men and women of knowledge.” Archaeologists describe the Toltec as one of the great Mesoamerican cultures. The Toltec believed that life is a dream and that we are always dreaming, even when awake.
