If life can be characterised as a gentle, natural process of evolution, then Théun Mares is the embodiment of that process. In the world today, though, there is no such gentle, natural process. The problems we face are the result of stagnation, of spurning the process of life, and so the earth and all who inhabit the earth, are dangerously out of balance. But we know all this. The question is, how do we, as individuals, regain our balance? How do we again incorporate into our actions the interrelationship of all of life? How do we implement the principles, within our own lives, that will result in a new world coming into being? One thing we can be sure of, and that is what we have tried so far, is clearly not working.

The life of Théun Mares has always been about finding balance; learning it, and also imparting that knowledge. What is it that causes a lack of balance in each of us? What specifically, in a way that is unique to us, has caused every one of us to be so out of harmony with ourselves, with our relationships, with the world around us? From his career as a classical dancer, to his career in education, and then writing books and guiding people, Théun has found the balance and poise within himself, and been able to impart this uniquely it to others. As Théun says, "What is balance, but a finely-honed application of life's guiding principles of intelligent co-operation?"

"If we can learn what it truly means to co-operate intelligently with all of life, then we can experience harmony, instead of destruction. If we allow life to evolve naturally and gently, then we can also experience regeneration. Such is the way of the warrior - to touch the world lightly - to learn to be fully part of the world, but yet not to despoil her."

Yet, for far too long, our cultures have embodied the corrosive divisiveness that grows out of the separativeness of a purely rationalistic approach to life. We have forced our views continually on others and their societies - man vs man, man vs nature. We even force our views onto our own children. The books of Théun Mares show how we can overcome the effects of separativeness within ourselves, and within our lives, and so achieve the balance and harmony we so desire. A balance between spirit and matter, feelings and mind, male and female, our light sides and our dark sides, a balance between all of the seemingly opposing forces that threaten to pull us apart. Théun Mares shows that once ALL our aspects have been brought into alignment; have been reconciled, we find that our life is evolving harmoniously and we feel constantly renewed.

However, just as the training of a dancer is not quick, but takes many years of constant practice for the many tensions that exist to be integrated, so too is the process of living a life of intelligent co-operation also not easy or quick.

To help people experience balance, and intelligent co-operation in action - in addition to his many books and his teaching and guidance websites - Théun has established the Temple of Peace, where sincere visitors can come to a direct understanding of these principles for themselves, and discover more how to apply them in their daily lives.

Eulogy

Théun Mares was never concerned with catching the eye. Instead, his every movement originated from, and was addressed to, the heart. The result is that Théun's life carries an influence that is powerful beyond calculation. All that we can say at this point is that the effects will be felt for aeons to come.

Théun Mares’ life ended peacefully in 2011.

If life can be characterised as a gentle, natural process of evolution, then the life of Théun Mares revealed that process. In the world today, though, there is no such gentle, natural process.

Throughout his life, Théun always sought that balance. What is it that causes a lack of balance in each of us? What specifically, in our own unique way, has caused us to be so out of harmony with ourselves, with our relationships, with the world around us? From his career as a classical dancer, to his career in education, and then writing books and guiding people, Théun strove to find the balance and poise within himself, and was able to impart this uniquely to others.

Théun always said that he was a nagal in a hurry, as he needed to achieve so much in his lifespan. Consequently, in the many endeavours that Théun initiated, he trained a select group of people, who could be trusted to continue his work in their respective areas of specialisation – the work of bringing the Toltec Legacy, in its different forms, to humanity.
