Meet don Allan
ALLAN HARDMAN began his career in the healing arts in 1989, when he trained as a clinical hypnotherapist at the Alchemy Institute of Hypnosis, in Santa Rosa, CA. He went on to study with many other teachers and modalities in spiritual psychology, and returned to instruct professional trainings with the Alchemy Institute for several years.
In 1995, Allan met Miguel Ruiz, Toltec Nagual and author of the best seller, The Four Agreements, The Mastery of Love, and the newly released, The Toltec Art of Life and Death. For the next ten years, Allan studied and traveled with don Miguel, until he had completed his intensive apprenticeship in the Toltec tradition.
Allan is a powerful Toltec teacher, an elder in the Eagle Knight Lineage of Miguel Ruiz, and in in the words of don Miguel, “Allan became a true Toltec Master several years ago, and it is the way he lives his life.”
Allan continues his passion for the Toltec path, offering classes, workshops, and lectures in California, the USA, and Mexico, along with his online program TACO, which supports seekers in an international online community.
Allan has met life as a forestry firefighter, student (BS in National Park Management), 1970’s vagabond in the world and woods, manager of a large natural foods restaurant in Vermont, manager of a health food store in Hawaii, custom landscaper, counseling hypnotherapist, commercial beekeeper in California, ranch caretaker, garden wedding host, student of New Thought— and he brings it all together now as a magician of healing.
Allan’s multi-discipline background in emotional healing and spiritual counseling, together with his unconditional love, piercing insight, and delightful sense of humor, offers a powerful and safe space for his students and apprentices. He is an expert at revealing and healing the hidden belief systems that limit and sabotage our lives—and showing the way to the freedom to be all we can be. He truly does live his life as a master, and to experience his passion and teaching presence is a gift we at ToltecOnline and TACO hope you will enjoy giving yourself.
Allan is the author of The Everything Toltec Wisdom Book, and co-author of The Heart of Healing and Healing the Heart of the World, with Deepak Chopra, Caroline Myss, Dr. Andrew Weil, Prince Charles, and others.

Your desire for freedom, your perseverance, your setbacks and successes, have pulled from me the silent knowledge that has enriched all of our lives and has led directly to the success of our online learning community, TACO. Thank you. I love you all.” Invite don Allan to speak or participate in your group, journey, online summit, or other gathering by contacting us here: firstname.lastname@example.org
