Sit at the foot of a native elder and listen as great wisdom of days long past is passed down. In The Four Agreements shamanic teacher and healer Don Miguel Ruiz exposes self-limiting beliefs and presents a simple yet effective code of personal conduct learned from his Toltec ancestors. Full of grace and simple truth, this handsomely designed book reads in a voice that you would expect from an indigenous shaman.
The four agreements are these: Be impeccable with your word. Don't take anything personally. Don't make assumptions. Always do your best.
It's the how and why one should do these things that make The Four Agreements worth reading and remembering.
