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.

Highlights

 • The Art of Commitment: embracing your power of choice

 • The Art of Loving: coming back to unconditional love

 • The Art of Trust: how to stop undermining your trust in yourself and others

Exploration of your true self

Man I knew from the other books I felt like there are parts to my being that I needed to let go of to feel a sense of joy and completeness. However when I got to the Art of Showing up its more than I expected. More emotion and more avenues showed me the journey wasn't over. I'm so happy I got this book and I hope everyone else who gets it feels the same

Too much icing on the cake

Could not finish. I appreciate the insight but couldn’t get past the dramatic pauses and the overall feeling of fragility I felt being projected by HeatherAsh. Just my opinion though.

good book, inspiring

I really enjoy Heatherash Amara's warrior goddess books and so I bought this one. This was my first Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. experience and I quite enjoyed the collaboration.

Communication Revealed Simply

I loved how easy a listen this was and the two delivery styles that they both brought. The perspectives and principles brought me great clarity in areas of communication I needed growth in. Their stories were relatable.

An Insightful take on personal growth and healing

The narration felt genuine and at times I caught myself smiling at the content and the way it was delivered. Would recommend to anyone interested in improving themselves and their relationships.

BEST NARRATOR

I believe Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. was the narrator. WOW such passion in his words. I have to listen to this again with better focus. Lots of hidden gems!

Simple and effective

Great presentation by the two lecturers. Very nice energy by them, which is usually more crucial than the words themselves.

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.

Content very good however the voices did not compliment each other. :(

Miguel’s voice was soothing and allowed for moments of silence. His voice rich in tone. I did not appreciate the mixture with Heathers voice. After listening to Miguel’s voice Heather’s came across as being screechy. It distracted greatly from the flow of the content I was adjusting the volume back and forth constantly. I felt on edge and annoyed in anticipation to when Heather was going to speak again. Heather’s content was good there was however too much of a gap in volume, approach and frequency of both voices. If your goal was to get your valuable content across. Then I suggest using one voice or the other preferably Miguel’s in the finished recording. Don’t know if I will finish the book as a result. Really disappointed.

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. ❤️🙏🏼❤️

So many seeds were planted....

When Heatherash Amara and DMRJ come together something magical occurs and you get books like this. I learned so much and enjoyed hearing it from both sides of the spectrum. It is narrated by both of them and the extra meditations at the end of each really helped me to soak up and summarize each session.

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.
