Michael is Author of Open Mantra Meditation and Teacher of the Yogic Medicine Bag: Chanting Practices of Love, Forgiveness and Gratitude. Michael has studied the teachings of Miguel Ruiz since 2002. His favorite book is the Mastery of Love. His teachings are guided by the self-love he found in practicing the Four Agreements and meditation techniques he picked up from the Eastern approach of spirituality. Michael is forever thankful for the teachings of Meditation her learned from Samuel Sagan and created Open Mantra Meditation in combining such techniques with his passion of chanting. Now in the Yogic Medicine Bag he draws even more from his experiences with the Ruiz family in India, Teotihuacan (Mexico), and in the USA. He has brought the ancient practices of chanting using a flame, a mirror and a stone to free yourself from your own judgments and realize you are the Temple. God, the infinite, spirit, love, all answers come from within. These practices are the tools Michael used to free himself!
