Books and Lending Library
These are books that I have personally read and found to be helpful in some way. I also offer a lending library to those within the Hudson Valley area!
- One of my go-to books about dharma is Stephen Cope's "The Great Work of Your Life". Richly detailing how relatable modern-day figures answered the call to their dharma, this book also links us back to the root of this concept in the Bhagavad Gita. The result is a fascinating read that inspires us to heed the call to action in our own lives.
- "The Equisite Risk - Daring to Live An Authentic Life" by Mark Nepo is a classic guide to slowing down enough to really experience life and hear the voice of your authentic self.
- George Kinder's "Life Planning for You" is the original guide to life planning by the founder of the life planning movement. A great start to self-inquiry.
- Tosha Silver's fun and quirky read, "Outrageous Openness" reminds us to open our hearts and minds to the messages from the "universe". Pay attention to the signs all around you and let your life unfold.....
- If finding your next career is your objective, "Zen and the Art of Making a Living" by Laurence G. Boldt should be on your list of must-reads. Helping to square your need to feed your soul with the need to earn a living, this reference work contains useful worksheets to help you through the maze.
- "The Wealthy Barber" by David Chilton and "The Millionaire Next Door" by T. Stanley and W. Danko are both classic financial self-help guides to financial independence for everyday mortal creatures.
- Newly released, "The Art of Money" by Bari Tessler is financial therapy for dealing with the money demons within. A good starting point if you have deep-seated fear or anxiety related to money that creates an obstacle to moving forward.
- "Who Moved My Cheese" by Spencer Johnson, MD is a tiny bundle of wisdom about change and thinking outside the box. The world will not adapt to your whims - you must adapt to it.
- Best known for "Eat, Pray Love", author Elizabeth Gilbert switches gears to offer us some really great advice on getting your stuff out there in her recent work, "Big Magic - Creative Living Beyond Fear". We all fear failure. Successful, famous people just are more willing to fail, and we should be too.
