Don Miguel Ruiz
He is a renowned spiritual teacher and internationally bestselling author of the “Toltec Wisdom” Series, which has sold more than 12 million copies and has been published in 46 languages worldwide, including the books including “The Four Agreements,” “The Mastery of Love,” “The Voice of Knowledge,” “The Four Agreements Companion Book,” “The Circle of Fire,” and “The Fifth Agreement.”
Don Miguel Ruiz, the youngest of thirteen children, was born in rural Mexico to healers and practitioners of ancient Toltec traditions. He graduated from medical school in Mexico City and practiced neurosurgery with his older brother in Tijuana. However, a near-fatal car accident forever changed the direction of his life, prompting him to give up medicine and examine the essential truth about life and humanity. With the help of his mother, and through her ancient teachings, he discovered his own path to awareness, which evolved into a deep understanding of the physical universe and the virtual world of the mind.
Combining Toltec mythology and scientific perspectives, Don Miguel has been able to fuse ancient wisdom with modern physics and practical common-sense, forging a new philosophy for seekers of truth and personal authenticity. Today he is a revered Nagual teacher who teaches transformation workshops with the goal of touching people's spirits to help them understand that they have a choice.
