As a child, Don Miguel Ruiz, Jr., listened to the stories of his father, who passed on the ancient beliefs of his family through tales his young son could understand. As Miguel Jr. grew older he learned to listen to more than just the words of the story, but to search to find truth and meaning. He was just 14 when he became an apprentice to his father and grandmother, translating her workshops and lessons from Spanish to English. Finding the right words for in both languages to explain faith and its power gave Miguel Jr. a significant understanding of his family’s traditions.
As Miguel Jr. found peace in his own life, he realized that he was ready to share the wisdom of his family’s traditions. When his child received the diagnosis of autism, Miguel Jr. used his father’s teachings to gain a better understanding and perspective on life. Miguel Jr. shares these concepts with us, in an honest and open interview you won’t want to miss.
Don Miguel Ruiz is the international bestselling author of The Voice of Knowledge, The Mastery of Love, and The Four Agreements (a New York Times bestseller for over seven years).
Born into a family of healers in rural Mexico, Ruiz was chosen to carry forward his family’s centuries-old legacy of Toltec wisdom and healing. Instead, distracted by modern life, Ruiz chose to attend medical school and become a surgeon.
Late in the 1970s, a near-death experience changed his life and Ruiz decided to devote himself to mastering the wisdom of the ancient Toltec. To this day, he continues to share these teachings in lectures and journeys to sacred sites around the world.
Ruiz is widely known for transforming complex human issues into simple common sense — a talent which has earned him millions of fans, international acclaim, and a vote of approval from Oprah Winfrey. Sales of his Toltec Wisdom books have soared to more than 7 million copies in the United States alone, and have been translated into more than 30 languages worldwide.
