I appreciate and follow the teachings of Don Miguel and his family. They help one find inner peace. I have changed my life with their help.

I'd rather hold a grudge

ByDerithon March 5, 2014

Forgiveness is a foreign concept to me. I'm a master of holding a grudge and I have a memory an elephant would admire when it comes to wrongs - both real and perceived. I've been told I should 'let it go.' 'Get over it.' 'Move on.' 'Forgive yourself.' I don't get it. I wanna get it. I bought this book to help me understand and liked it very much. I'll have to read it again, because I forget to forgive. Forgiveness is a state of being and a condition. I'm a work in progress. 

Authentic and Enjoyable! WELL WORTH THE READ!

ByMamaof5on December 11, 2013

I have really enjoyed reading this account of an encounter with this Toltec master! I am a huge Don Miguel Ruiz fan and have all of his books, but I cannot get enough of the Toltec energy, so I went online to search out more sources, and of course the first links were AMazon!!! I chose this and several others and I think other than Don Miguel this is my favorite! Well written and very authentic, Oliver does not claim to be any kind of a Toltec master he is just a guy like you or me and that is what I think makes ti so real and fascinating to read….

This book is one to read and read again, if we followed the teachings our relationships would be better for it. I have bought other copies to give to friends. Olivier has a way of showing us what we need to understand, very easy to read, hard to put down.

This author gets it, explains it from his own perspective then demonstrates how he lives it. It is definitely a guide to walking your talk.


4.0 out of 5 stars An easy read, February 21, 2013

C.F.M "Devi" (Suwanee, GA)

I was kinda taken aback that this was not written by Don. And felt kinda duped. But the book is worth reading. I love what Olivier experienced and felt the need to share. Forgiving ourselves, as well as others is an important tool to carry in our lives. And this is why this book is 4 stars.


 Great Book, December 27, 2012

This is a very simple concept but not necessarily the method you might imagine - it is well worth the read


 Fantastic Book, December 26, 2012

Spiritual Seeker (Chula Vista, CA)

Oliver Clerc describes his experiences with Don Miguel and the importance of forgiveness and gives great instruction as to how to make this a life practice which is super important to spiritual and probably physical health as well.


4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful little pearls that have stuck with me, November 28, 2012


Found several little pearls in this book, making it worthwhile, five stars is reserved for original Toltec teachings by don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements and Mastery of Love. The beauty of most Toltec teachings is the simplicity of the words. Domestication, and all our personal agreements make it seem so complicated. This book's focus, is for everyone, lack forgiveness of ourselves and of others only limits the person not doing the forgiving, limiting freedom and possibilities.


 Highly recommend this book!!!!, December 9, 2011

Erica Davenport 

It's a small but powerful book, I had issues with forgiveness and when I asked other people about it I just got conflicting information. It answered by questions and made it easier for me to let go of the past and understand my participation in the events that occurred. It freed me up, just amazing what a simple exercise can do I would recommend it to any one who has held on to pain and anger just a compassionate way to deal with it.

Outstanding book, a must read for anyone who needs to forgive,weather be himself or someone else. I feel all of Don Miguel Ruiz book are super reads. For anyone who wants to enjoy their life, and truly love. Another must read is The Mastery of love, and The four agreements. I have reread my books many many times.

 Another of don Miguels greats, June 29, 2011

Amy Bade Pappas "Amy Pappas" (California, USA)

This one is a fast read and very powerful. After reading a few of his books I thought this might be interesting too! I was right, it's fast and useful. If your reading it at a time in your life when you need help forgiving (even yourself) you will find it helpful and easy to read and do. Enjoy!


 the gift of forgiveness, December 29, 2010


I read this book after reading The Four Agreements. A superb way to review and cement the teachings of the Four Agreements. I bought several and give them out as gifts. It has changed my life in a profound way for the better. Others to whom I gave or suggested the book(s) have had equal experiences.

Jacques Bernizan (Calgary, AB, Canada)

In the field of personal development, we often hear about "forgiveness" or "forgiving". This is a topic which at first sight looks rather simple. We understand its advantages, or even the mandatory need to forgive.
But the problem, actually, is applying such nice theories: what should we do to successfully forgive?
This is where Olivier Clerc has a gift. As with his other books, the author uses a clear and simple language that we understand without any effort. Here, no complicated terms or concepts only accessible to the few.
This is a practical book which offers a very easy and effective way to gain real results on a topic otherwise difficult to address. A real gift.


 One Technique, June 15, 2010

James F. Morris "Jim Morris" (CA USA)   

This is a slender volume devoted to one technique the author learned from don Miguel Ruiz. It's a simple technique and easily learned, but it does have te power to change your life for the better. As such it is well worth this small investment.
