The Agreement of Love
November 20 - 22, 2020
In the best-selling book The Four Agreements, don Miguel Ruiz gives us principles to transform our lives into an expression of unconditional love. Join Ruiz’s sons—don Miguel Ruiz Jr. and don Jose Ruiz—for a weekend designed to unlock the power of these deceptively simple agreements so you can begin living the life you really desire. Guided by Toltec wisdom, you will learn to apply each agreement as a code of conduct, and throw off shame, abandon guilt, and find the freedom to express the real you without fear of judgment.
