Reality Unveiled: The Hidden Keys of Existence That Will Transform Your Life (and the World) Paperback – 26 Jan 2017
by Ziad Masri (Author)
The greatest teachers make the complex and confusing simple and knowable:
Ziad Madrid is such a teacher and he conveys the spiritual curriculum with such love and understanding with a message of self acceptance and love being all. For all my years as someone who had been aware that I was on the path, I truly struggled with understanding what it meant to love myself so that I could love others. Seems a straightforward thing, but for me I just could not make it real in my life. As the book unfolds going from science, spirituality and oneness to the impact we make as “individuals” in the world from a loving perspective, I found the penny began to drop about compassion for the self and I finally got it and was able to integrate this lesson into my own self awareness, releasing me from some struggles I am experiencing. Thank you Ziad 🙂 This is such a great book, it brings together so many disparate ideas and teachings into one place and synthesis them in a whole and complete picture. The ocean in a drop, indeed.
‘The book that says it all’
This book says it all for me. I’ve read 100s of books on every aspect of spirituality over the years and this book seems to have brought all those teachings together and presented them back to me in a very warm and human way. Thank you Ziad for your gift.
The Disbelief Habit: How to Use Doubt to Make Peace with Your Inner Critic: Volume 2 (Self-Compassion) Paperback – 12 Nov 2017
by Yong Kang Chan (Author)
‘A very helpful process’
This book outlines a 5 part plan to create a habit of disbelief, so that we do not automatically believe or resist our inner critics, but learn and benefit from them. The author is conversational in style, but clear and knowledgeable. If you want a solution to negative thinking that isn’t just a quick fix, but doesn’t take forever to master, this could be the book for you.
‘Learn to disbelieve the negative voice inside your head!’
This is the second book by Yong I’ve read, and so far, my favorite. He has such a wonderful way of writing, it feels as though he was in same the room speaking directly to you.
In this book, he talks at length about changing our mindsets and in turn, changing our habits. Yong has gone through was he speaks about, and is very genuine in both his approach and advice. He also speaks about why we think what we do, and how we can adjust our awareness of our thinking. This book helped me immensely, as I know it will help you as well!
The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself Kindle Edition
by Michael A. Singer (Author)
The untethered soul: your is about to become free!:
What I love most about this book is that the author actually does take you on a journey of discovery, being the interpreter and guide. You don’t need to already be aware of spiritual concepts to read it. He starts by making us aware that the only thing ‘we’ are is the witness to whatever is going on in our minds, emotions, dramas, etc. We can notice and simply detach. We can drive the vehicle!
As someone who has to manage my anxiety constantly, I have found this a godsend. It’s just a very simple message that I want to burn into my brain – it’s a textbook really. I will be reading it over and over again till the knowledge is close to my heart.
‘Great read, hugely insightful’
This book is pure fire!! Honestly, it puts a lot of things into perspective. Using some of the technics at times where I would have usually overreacted definitely sorted out a negative chain reaction. I am going to read it again so the info sticks. Great read, hugely insightful. Loved it! You will have several aaaahaaaa moments.
A User’s Guide To The Brain Paperback – 5 Jun 2003
by Dr. John J. Ratey (Author)
very interesting for someone who has done any proper science/ biology since A-level over 20 years ago. I would definitively need to read it again if I was hoping to remember all the chemical processes but the examples are very good and very informative. I am a teacher and find it useful to have a good understanding of the brain’s mechanisms
Great in-depth, interesting and factual book:
This book was exactly what I was looking for. To understand more both basic and more indepth with examples. Easy to read, follow and understand. I have an even more keen interest in Neurology.
