Bert Gunn, MSW, ACSW, is a clinical social worker/handyman from Chaplin, CT. He assisted, traveled with, organized for, and interpreted for Tlakaelel, the Tolteka-Mexica Elder from Teotihuacan, Mexico for 22 years until his passage in July of 2012. Bert is currently writing a book on the passage of Tlakaelel from this world three years ago as well as a book on his travels on the “red road”.
“I have always been a seeker, exploring the essence of many traditions, and can remember at the age of about 10, knowing that I had some mission, some message to bring to this world. I have now been learning and following the “Red Road” (the path of Native American and Mexica spirituality) for over 30 years now, learning many of the ceremonies and traditions.
Bert has been trained and authorized by Tlakaelel and other Elders to conduct various traditional ceremonies and teachings. Among other ceremonies, has been assisting in and conducting the Four Colors Ceremony for 25 years around the world, as well as the annual Tonal Mitotianilitzli (Celebration of the Sun) dance ceremony in Mexico and conducts the Temazkal sweat ceremony. He is also available for individual consultation/healing sessions when asked, with no fee ever asked..
“I try to offer a down to earth re-connection to our selves and our spiritual connection to the universe through sharing, ceremony, and seeing ourselves as an integral part of the cosmos. We are integrally connected with all of creation, and when we realize this, we then feel more of the great healing element of love, which is truly the basis of most spiritual teachings. This universal love is the greatest healing element in our universe. My work is more universal than tied to one specific tradition, tho I primarily practice the ceremonies and indigenous traditions of the Americas. “
