The Many Faces of Confidence

Nice, France — July 20 – 22, 2019

A Carlos Castaneda’s Tensegrity® Premier Event


Do you know what you want for your life? Are your dreams clearly envisioned, outlined and planned… yet they still seem out of reach? What is holding you back from living your dreams? 

For most people, it is what many call a lack of confidence … a trust within themselves that they possess and can access the ability to turn their dreams into reality. You have doubts … constantly second guessing yourself.

Instead of staying fast on your path of heart, you pause when you should be bold. You’re bold when you should be cautious. You miss the opportunities being presented to you … or you simply fail to begin the journey in the first place.




Faces are masks … lies we tell ourselves and others to fein confidence so as to acquire a false sense of certainty, self worth and power. There are many faces of confidence and we see them in action everyday.

The dressing up in power clothes and the “fake it until you make it” mask of confidence. The seemingly obsessive need to argue, to be “right” so as to prove to the world, and yourself that you’re worthy. Losing ourselves in the masks of food, alcohol, drugs, excessive recreation, distraction etc., continuing to feign you “have it all together.”

Confidence, or as the Naguals call it, Personal Power, is not an external face or mask. It is an internal force that connects you to the power of intention. It’s that solidity … knowing from within, exempt from outside trappings, that you can access your fullest potential. Personal Power is that connection to the unknowable that erases doubt, timidity, shyness and greed.



Go Beyond Instinct … into Acquiescence

It is impossible to determine what the intent of infinity is, yet it is there, as palpable as you and I are. Sorcerers say that it is a tremor in the air. The advantage of sorcerers is to know that the tremor in the air exists, and to acquiesce to it without any further ado. For sorcerers, there’s no pondering, wondering, or speculating. They know that all they have is the possibility of merging with the intent of infinity, and they just do it.”

— Don Juan Matus

Develop Your Own Confidence … Your Unique Personal Power

Each one of us has our own form, flow, stride … Personal Power that connects us to intent. In this workshop, you will begin by letting go of the lies you tell yourself. Then, free of those false faces of confidence, you will discover YOUR unique Face of Personal Power. You will practice engaging and testing them so that when you return home, they will be beyond instinct … as natural to you as breathing.



“When sorcerers beckon intent, it comes to them and sets up the path for attainment, which means that sorcerers always accomplish what they set out to do.” — Carlos Castaneda




Discover YOUR Personal Power

Find those multiple faces of confidence, unique to you, that you can carry forward the rest of your life.

“Every warrior has a specific form, a specific posture of power, which he develops throughout his life. It is a sort of dance. A movement that he does under the influence of his personal power.”

— Don Juan Matus


Engage YOUR Personal Power

Move from knowing confidence at the event to testing it in different scenarios in the modern world.

“I will show you then the first movement of power. You must add the other movements yourself as you go on living. Every new one must be obtained during a struggle of power.”

— Don Juan Matus


Engrain YOUR Personal Power

Assess and refine your Faces of Confidence, Your Personal Power, so that they are available to you … ready to use them at any time.

“You need to believe that personal power can be used and that it is possible to store it … to be convinced means that you can act by yourself.”

— Don Juan Matus
