Written by Mexican shaman Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements is a practical guide to personal freedom and healing. Ruiz believes that human beings feel lost and unhappy because of the constant domestication that they receive from the people and environments they frequent, even though they have everything they need to live a life full of love and wisdom. The Four Agreements can help people make changes to their behaviour that will enable them to live their own truth. Living according to these agreements can give us all the chance to experience heaven on earth, and the satisfaction of having the strength to do so.

Don Miguel Ruiz is a Mexican shaman who has dedicated his entire life to the power of transformation. Son of a curandera and grandson of a shaman, he was born the thirteenth child of a humble family in Mexico. After attending medical school, he understood that both people’s body and soul need to be treated in order for them to be well, so he decided to go back to his mother to learn the art of healing. Then following a terrible road accident, in which he almost died, Ruiz decided to devote himself to the care of the soul by revising the teachings on the traditions of Toltec.
