“This book by Don Miguel Ruiz, simple but so powerful, has made a huge difference in the way I think and act at every encounter.” – Oprah Winfrey Ashley Rao, of the Survivor Assistance Program, wrote, “Wherever we end up in the spiritual spectrum – from skeptics to believers and beyond religious beliefs – the application of Ruiz`s principles offers possibilities for transformation.”  Rachel Thompson of the HuffPost says the book “is a very useful book that can be put into practice in everyday practice by dealing with criticism of all kinds.” “Don Miguel Ruiz`s Book is a roadmap for enlightenment and freedom.” – Deepak Chopra, author, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success In addition to the book and audiobook, there is also an e-book, a four-color picture book, a card game and an online course.  Janet Mills is founder and president of the Amber-Allen Edition.

Their goal in life is to publish books of lasting beauty, integrity and wisdom and to inspire others to realize their most loved dreams. In the first part of this 2-part video, we learn how the “domestication” of men and how all the rules and values of our family and society are imposed on us by a system of punishment and reward. As young children, our true nature is to love and be happy, to explore and enjoy life; We are absolutely authentic. But then we learn to be what others think we should, and because it`s not normal that we are who we are, we start pretending we`re not what we`re not. When we are teenagers, we have learned to judge ourselves, to punish ourselves and to reward ourselves after agreements that we have never chosen. The four agreements help us break self-limitation agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us freedom, happiness and love.
