Inspiration and Guided
for Living in Love
by don Miguel Ruiz
with Janet Mills
"In my teachings, 'The Circle of Fire', ceremony celebrates the most important day of our lives: the day when we merge with the fire of our spirit, and return to our own destiny. This is the day when we recover the awareness of what we really are, and make the choice to live in communion with that force of creation we call Life or God."
In The Circle of Fire, bestselling author, don Miguel Ruiz, inspires us to enter into a new and loving relationship with ourselves with our fellow humans, and with all of creation. Through a selection of beautiful essays, prayers, and guided meditations, Ruiz prepares our minds for a new way of seeing life, and opens our hearts to find our way back to our birthright: heaven on earth. The result is a life lived in joy, harmony, and contentment.

Don Miguel Ruiz was born into a family of healers, and raised in rural Mexico. As the youngest of 13 children, he was chosen to carry forward his family's centuries-old legacy of healing and teaching. Instead, distracted by modern life, he chose to attend medical school and become a surgeon.
Late one night in the early 1970s, a near-death experience changed his life. He awoke suddenly, having fallen asleep at the wheel of his car. At that instant the car careened into a wall of concrete. Don Miguel remembers that he was not in his physical body as he watched himself pull his two friends to safety. Stunned by this experience, he began an intense practice of self-inquiry, and decided to devote himself to mastering the ancient ancestral wisdom. To this day, don Miguel continues to share these teachings in lectures, workshops, and journeys to sacred sites around the world.
