Today’s episode welcomes my special guest, Don Jose Ruiz. He is a Toltec master of transformation and modern-day Shaman. He is a direct descendant of the Toltecs of the Eagle Night lineage and is the son of don Miguel Ruiz, author of New York Times bestseller The Four Agreements. He is the author of The Fifth Agreement (co-authored with his father), Ripples of Wisdom, and My Good Friend The Rattlesnake, The The Wisdom of the Shamans, The Medicine Bag, and his newest book released this month, Shamanic Power animals

Don Jose Ruiz was born in Mexico City and raised in Tijuana, Mexico. When he was 21, he came to live in the United States with his father, don Miguel Ruiz. He lectures and gives workshops around the world and dedicates his life to sharing the ancient Toltec wisdom by translating it into practical, everyday life concepts that promote transformation through truth, love, and common sense. 

In today’s episode we discuss his book The Fifth Agreement that was co-written with his father Don Miguel Ruiz. The book offers a fresh perspective on the Four Agreements, and a powerful new agreement for transforming our lives into our personal heaven

The Fifth Agreement takes us to a deeper level of awareness of the power of the Self, and returns us to the authenticity we were born with. In this compelling sequel to The Four Agreements, we are reminded of the greatest gift we can give ourselves: the freedom to be who we really are.
