We welcome back visionary and luminary author Don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements and The Mastery of Love.

Don Miguel Ruiz discusses in-depth the concepts behind The Mastery Of Love.

Our interview includes:
>>Why “domestication” and the “image of perfection” lead to self-rejection
>>The war of control that slowly destroys most relationships
>>How to finally accept and forgive ourselves and others
>>Illumination of the fear-based beliefs and assumptions that undermine love and lead to suffering in relationships

Don Miguel Ruiz was born into a family of healers and raised in rural Mexico by a curandera (healer) mother and a nagual (shaman) grandfather.  The family anticipated that Miguel would embrace their centuries-old legacy of healing and teaching, and carry forward the esoteric Toltec wisdom and knowledge.  Instead, distracted by modern life, Miguel chose to attend medical school and become a surgeon.

A near-death experience changes his life.  Late one night in the early 1970s, he awoke suddenly, having fallen asleep at the wheel of his car.  At that instant the car careened into a wall of concrete.  Don Miguel remembers that he was not in his physical body as he watched himself pull his two friends to safety.

Stunned by this experience, he began an intensive practice of self-inquiry.  He devoted himself to the mastery of the ancient ancestral wisdom, studying earnestly with his mother, and completing an apprenticeship witha powerful shaman in the Mexican desert.  His grandfather, who had sinced passed on, continued to teach him in his dreams.

Don Miguel Ruiz, a nagual from the Eagle Knight lineage, is dedicated to sharing his knowledge of the teachings of the antcient Toltec.  He lives in San Diego, California.
