Born in France as the child of an American diplomat, Barbara Emrys grew up in Europe, Africa and the West Indies. She had a career as an actress on television, stage and film, as well as a co-producer of independent movies. Her writings today reflect both her diverse cultural upbringing and creative education.

Twenty-five years ago, she met don Miguel Ruiz and began an apprenticeship with him. Her shamanic training, as well as her many years of work as a teacher of Toltec Dreaming, have given Barbara unique insights into human behavior and an artistic approach to life. Her collaborations with don Miguel, in the classroom and in their writing, are an ongoing source of inspiration and creativity.
