Houston IONS November Meeting

WHAT:  Video: “Being Your True Story, the Pathway to Happiness”
 We will show the presentation by Don Miguel Ruiz from the IONS Chicago Conference in July 2015.  Be inspired by the author of The Four Agreements, as he shares ways to cultivate a happier and more rewarding story for ourselves. We are born perfect, and we will die perfect. We search for everything we believe we don’t have, not knowing that everything we are looking for is already inside us. We are born with it.

Don Miguel Ruiz
Author of New York Times bestseller “the Four Agreements, Don Miquel Ruiz is a Mexican author of Toltec spiritualist and neoshamanistic texts.  His work is part of the New Age movement that focuses on ancient teachings as a means to achieve spiritual enlightenment. Ruiz is listed as one of the Watkins 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People in 2014.  Some have associated Ruiz's work with Carlos Castaneda, author of The Teachings of Don Juan.  The Four Agreements are:
Be Impeccable With Your Word.
Don't Take Anything Personally.
Don't Make Assumptions.
Always Do Your Best.
