I started this page so that I could list books (in no particular order) that have been meaningful for me at different points in my life. I hope (eventually) to write at least mini-reviews of all of them, even if it’s just to write a sentence or two. I’ll continue to add to the list, so please check back from time to time.
The Book of Awakening by Mark Nepo – This book of 365 daily readings is the first thing I read upon waking. I have only recently discovered this lovely open-hearted book, but it is sure to become the Velveteen Rabbit of my spiritual bookshelf…well-used and worn from much loving.
Broken Open by Elizabeth Lesser – See http://pathwriter.wordpress.com/2012/01/21/book-review-broken-open-by-elizabeth-lesser/
Care of the Soul by Thomas Moore
The Re-enchantment of Everyday Life by Thomas Moore
The Gift of Change by Marianne Williamson
Everyday Grace by Marianne Williamson
Loving What Is by Byron Katie
Finding Your Own North Star by Martha Beck
Steering by Starlight by Martha Beck
Finding Your Way in a Wild New World by Martha Beck
Ordinary People as Monks and Mystics by Marsha Sinetar
The Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Illusions by Richard Bach (actually, pretty much anything by Richard Bach)
A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle – I had this book on my shelf for a couple of years and finally picked it up to read recently…confirmation once again that I’m led to the right books at the right time. Many of the concepts that Tolle talks about in this book I had heard and understood on an intellectual level, but didn’t know on that deep, wordless, soul level. Not only was I ready for what Tolle has to say, but his words also dovetail beautifully with other recent reads.
Defy Gravity by Caroline Myss
The Firestarter Sessions by Danielle LaPorte
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert – Another book I bought and didn’t read until years later. Related to a LOT of what Gilbert shared.
