Publisher's Summary

The beloved teacher of spiritual wisdom and author of the phenomenal New York Times and international best-seller The Four Agreements takes listeners on a mystical Toltec-inspired personal journey, introducing us to a deeper level of spiritual teaching and awareness.

In 2002, Don Miguel Ruiz suffered a near-fatal heart attack that left him in a nine-weeks-long coma. The spiritual journey he undertook while suspended between this world and the next forms the heart of The Toltec Art of Life and Death, a profound and mystical tale of spiritual struggle. As his body lies unconscious, Ruiz's spirit encounters the people, ideas, and events that have shaped him, illuminating the eternal struggle between life - unending energy and truth - and death - matter and subjective knowledge - in which we are all called to engage.

Over 10 years in the making, The Toltec Art of Life and Death invites listeners into the mind of a master of spiritual seeking, offering an unparalleled and intimate glimpse into the development of a soul. In this culmination of a lifetime's learning, Ruiz shares with listeners the innermost workings of his singular heart and mind and summons us to grapple with timeless insights, drawn from ancient Toltec wisdom, that are the essence of transformation.

Extremely boring

I loved the 4 agreements, this book is nothing like that. Felt like reading the Old Testament.

too slow for me

Some good points but far a few between in my opinion. I struggled but finally gave up trying to stay interested at chapter 16.

Lessons on life and death

I enjoyed the concept of unity and inclusion of the survivors and their determination as well as their surrender of knowledge to encompass wisdom regarding living and transformation.
