OUR RECOMMENDED BOOKS TO NOURISH THE MIND AND FIRE THE SOUL! THIS MONTH, WE SELECT OUR TOP FIVE SELF-LOVE READS FOR ALL…
1. How to Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People): Spiritual Advice for Modern Relationships by Meggan Watterson + Lodro Rinzler
A smart, hip guide for spiritual seekers who want to experience more love and stability in all forms of relationships. Told from the unique vantage points of authors Meggan Watterson and Lodro Rinzler, this book explores staying anchored in the foundation of self-love as you navigate the natural (and often stormy) cycle of a relationship.
Their dual perspectives as teachers and scholars of Christian mysticism and Buddhism make for a rich and fascinating dialogue that covers everything from sex, self-worth, falling in (and out of) love, deep friendships, to breakups and how to maintain an open heart through it all.
A healing journey through the terrain of what it is to be a woman. When a woman isn’t in alignment with her feminine essence, she may experience exhaustion and overwhelm, lack sexual desire or passion for life, and generally feel “out of sync”.
In this book, Lisa Lister uses a myriad of tools and practices to teach women how to reconnect to their feminine wisdom in order to start rebalancing all aspects of their lives. Love Your Lady Landscape will move women into a fiercely loving and healing relationship with their body and will teach them how to use its cycles and signs to create a life of vitality, fulfillment, and creation.
Every time we are introduced to someone new, try to be creative, or start a difficult conversation, we take a risk. We feel uncertain and exposed. We feel vulnerable. Most of us try to fight those feelings – we strive to appear perfect.
In a powerful new vision, Dr. Brené Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability, and dispels the widely accepted myth that it’s a weakness. Daring Greatly is the culmination of 12 years of groundbreaking social research, across every area of our lives including home, relationships, work, and parenting. It is an invitation to be courageous; to show up and let ourselves be seen, even when there are no guarantees. This is daring greatly.
4. The Inner Fix: Be Stronger, Happier and Braver by Joanne Bradford + Persia Lawson
A unique and practical step-by-step programme to help you dramatically improve your relationships, feel more confident and become the best version of yourself – both inside and out. With our lives being overrun by social media and celebrity culture, being twenty-something has become pretty complicated.
Wanting things we can’t afford, finding ourselves stuck in a job we don’t enjoy, or still living at home with mum and dad, we reach for things to try to perk us up (sex, booze and drugs) – but eventually, they turn out to be the very things that bring us down. With tools and exercises to work through at your own pace, The Inner Fix is guaranteed to teach you how to stop worrying and start living.
5. Playing Big: A Practical Guide For Brilliant Women Like You by Tara Mohr
When women play big, we make things happen! Five years ago, Tara Mohr began to see a pattern in her work as an expert in leadership: women with tremendous talent, ideas and aspiration were not recognising their own brilliance. They felt that they were ‘playing small’ in their lives and careers and wanted to ‘play bigger’, but didn’t know how. And so Tara devised a step-by-step programme for playing big from the inside out: this book is the result. We love it!
