I find these books well written, well organized, and well indexed.

The Anatomy Coloring Book
Just minutes of visual study can make brain and body work together better.

The Physiology Coloring Book
A more in-depth look at your systems. I don't actually have this but I probably will one day.

Wheels of Life
This is an deep exploration of each chakra, consistently from multiple angles and with integrating text. Learn about the corresponding yoga poses, foods, sounds, emotions, organs, body parts, et cetera.

Hands of Light
My main guide to the human energy field and very well-regarded (check the internet).

The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy
A great guide for caring for yourself and developing your sense of smell. The writer is quite knowledgeable and I use her recipes personally and professionally.

The Complete Book of Flower Essences
Explores subtle healing through the endocrine system. References chakras too. I use flower essences with some clients as well as for myself.

You Can Heal Your Life
"If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed."
- Louise Hay
This book has a whole chapter of charted ailments, body parts and emotional correlations that I respect and use.

Random House Webster's Unabridged Dictionary
The ultimate reference. Do you use the words that mean what you intend?

Beliefs & the Mind

Our minds are our most uncharted tools. There are some great approaches in these and of course tons more to add.

The Four Agreements
"Presents a simple yet effective code of personal conduct from his Toltec ancestors."

Los Cuatro Acuerdos
El mismo en Español

The Mastery of Love
"Highlights typical misplaced expectations in relationships."

Arts & Photography

I consider developing the senses an important aspect of well-being.


Body Knots
What a collaborative expression of physical and visual artists! The color and design choices are stylish and stimulating. The contortions of the models are impressive and interesting. The photographic angles are deep and offbeat.

Literature & Fiction

Illusions: Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah
Light and deep - I had delicious naps while reading this, and food for thought that was pretty darn effortless.

By the Light of My Father's Smile
"Synthesizes ancient and modern wisdoms in a way that's as artistically daring as it is politically correct."
I agree. The same story is told from the perspective of two adult sisters and their dead father...

Winner of the Turner Tomorrow Award, an award for authors whose fiction helps produce solutions to global problems.

The Story of B
"A sequel of sorts to Ishmael, this book is not really a novel, but an extended Socratic dialogue."
I felt it nearly completed its very complex mission. Near is very notable, especially when it comes to culture and the other mysteries of the world. I was able to journal out my missing links which was great.
