About Koyote

Salvadore√Īo in exile.

Poet. Artist. Writer

Tata Nkisi of Palo Mayombe.

A Nahual walking the path of the infinite.



Koyote is a Toltec Shaman who began his training among the volcanoes and jungles of
El Salvador, where the revolutionary dreams of a just and good world framed his
spiritual aspirations. While pursuing his Jesuit education and volunteering to create and
lead a literacy program for the children of war refugees, Koyote trained in Tantra Yoga
and Western Mysticism during his adolescence, until he was forced into exile when
targeted by that troubled country’s death squads.
In 1985, Koyote fled to the USA, where he obtained political asylum and, eventually, his
citizenship. He then took on the role of a householder and raised a family, worked full
time, and pursued his graduate and post-graduate studies in Philosophy and Cognitive
Sciences at UCSD and Santa Clara University. His worldly obligations did not stop his
spiritual pursuits. He was initiated in Kriya Yoga and Magick while fulfilling his duties as
a householder.
In 1995, he was initiated by his Yaqui-Lacandon benefactor into the Toltec tradition and
the Path of the Infinite. Koyote was acknowledged as a teacher in the lineage by the
elder Nahual, Teczaki G√ľitame Cachora.

He developed a Toltec improvisational performance art called The Telling, a mystical
inducing experience known to affect and transform the listener through a direct and
unmediated experience.

He works both for humanity, but also against the status quo of this current world.

He is a holder of different traditions: Tantra, Yoga, Magic, The Path of the Nagual, Mayombe, The Brujo.
