True Love: A Practice For Awakening the Heart
By: Thich Nhat Hanh
A beautifully written book by internationally known Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hanh.This book explores four aspects of love from a Buddhist perspective and provides many meaningful stories and anecdotes to help understand the teachings. I have given many copies of this book to individuals over the years. This books is a lovely
reminder of how much choice we have in how we show our love and
affection for others.
The Artists Way
By: Julia B. Cameron
This book takes you on a creativity boosting adventure! Julia Cameron guides the reader through different exercises meant to help with creativity, self-love, and confidence while also explaining the importance of cherishing and supporting the inner artist in us all.
This book has been incredibly helpful to so many different people in
my life, including myself! I often find myself going back to certain
exercises or practices I learned in the Artists Way. In fact, many of
these practices have become a regular routine in my life!
The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma
By: Bessel van der Kolk M.D.
This book is the ultimate book on trauma. Not only is it readable (some might even say a page turner!), but it also illuminates the world of trauma and the way trauma effects our body, mind, and brain! Psychology fans
will love this book, and most everyone else will find the personal stories, the anecdotes, and the research to be so compelling that they will find
themselves searching for the sequel.
Memories, Dreams, Reflections
By: C. G. Jung
A beautiful story, and often the hook that gets individuals interested in Jungian theory. In this book Jung talks about the entirety of his life, from growing up in a religious household to his famous split with Freud. The writing is compelling and thought provoking. This is a book you will
want to read over and over again.)
