Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Victor Sanchez is a Mexican author from Guadalajara. He was initially inspired by the writings of Carlos Castaneda and by his own studies among the Wirrarika, said to be descendants of the Pre-Columbian Native American Toltecs.

Sanchez's first book, The Teachings of Don Carlos: Practical Applications of the Works of Carlos Castaneda (1995), provides in-depth techniques and commentary on a path of "self-growth" based on the wisdom of the Toltec descendants. Sanchez has published three further books: Toltecs of the New Millennium (1996), providing an overview of and background on the author's experiences with the Wirrarika; The Toltec Path of Recapitulation: Healing Your Past to Free Your Soul (2001); and The Toltec Oracle (2004). Sanchez's recapitulation technique bears some resemblance to Sandra Ingerman's soul retrieval technique. Other shamanic teachers using similar techniques include Michael Harner, PhD founder of core shamanism, and Ken Page founder of Heart and Soul Healing. Some have associated Sanchez's work with Toltec author Don Miguel Ángel Ruiz, author of the Four Agreements.

In his works Sanchez coins the term "anti-anthropology", likening his form of research to anti-psychiatry. His approach to the study of the natives he portrays is, in his own words, "not to transform them, but to transform" himself.

Sanchez was sued by Castaneda for infringement of copyright after including an eagle, desert, and other iconography on the covers of his books similar to that used by Castaneda.[1]
