Publisher's Summary

Discover the art of creating deep and loving relationships - starting with yourself.

“You cannot give what you do not have,” teach HeatherAsh Amara and don Miguel Ruiz Jr. To build stronger and more loving relationships with others, the starting point is always your relationship with yourself. With The Art of Showing Up, Amara and Ruiz bring you a powerful audio workshop to undo the inner patterns that keep you trapped in cycles of conflict and misunderstanding - and help you build a foundation for all your relationships to flourish and grow.

Dispelling the illusion of conditional love

Most of us have been indoctrinated in the illusion that we should be rewarded with love when we are worthy and punished with abandonment when we are not. That is called conditional love - which leads to power struggles, deception, and the need to “domesticate” each other. Yet conditional love is learned, and can be unlearned. Using insights and guided meditations, Amara and Ruiz offer seven essential arts to help you locate the places where you are stuck in conditional thinking, so you may open again and again to a love that reflects the purest expression of yourself.

In the Toltec wisdom taught by HeatherAsh Amara and don Miguel Ruiz Jr., you learn to replace the conditions of love with agreements. These agreements arise freely from a place of mutual respect, curiosity, and honesty. With The Art of Showing Up, these masterful teachers reveal how you can cast aside the masks you wear in relationship with others and yourself - and discover the joy of unconditional love you were meant to share.

The REPETITIVE Art of showing up.

Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. is not his father and HeatherAsh is annoying. The concept is good and the meditations were nice. However, the same thing was said again and again. It was painfully slow to get through each chapter. I found it to be boring and their narrative to be over dramatized. Not awful but not the best.

I recommend this book to EVERYONE.

This is a life changing book. I recommend it to anyone who has ever been in a relationship, is in a relationship, or looking to be in a relationship. It is also incredibly helpful in strengthening the relationship with oneself, as well as with family, friends, and for simply living a more authentic life. I wish I could have listened to this book when I was a teenager, when I was just starting to enter into romantic relationships, and getting to know myself. I believe my life would have been much different if I had. This is not to say I'm ungrateful for where I am now, because I truly am! But these lessons and insights are powerful tools that could have helped me on my journey, and I know I would have experienced much less heartbreak in my life if I had read this sooner. Thank you Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. and HeatherAsh Amara for all the love you both put into creating this book and for releasing it into the world. May it spread like wildfire! Will there be a hardcopy someday? I hope!
Thank you again. I am grateful beyond measure. ❤️🙏🏼❤️

Life-changing advice. I will listen to it again.

If all of us listened to this information, there would be less divorces, less break-ups and more happiness in the world due to less conflict and unnecessary relationship drama.
