ThePowerofNowThe Power of Now – Eckhart Tolle

Ekhart Tolle’s message is simple: living in the now is the truest path to happiness and enlightenment. And while this message may not seem stunningly original or fresh, Tolle’s clear writing, supportive voice, and enthusiasm make this an excellent manual for anyone who’s ever wondered what exactly “living in the now” means.


MindsetMindset  – Carol Dweck

It’s not just our abilities and talent that bring us success–but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn’t foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals–personal and professional. Dweck reveals how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area.


TranslucentRevolutionThe Translucent Revolution – Arjuna Ardagh

Spiritual awakening is not just for monks.  This advance in human consciousness is marked by what Arjuna calls “translucents” — individuals who have undergone a spiritual awakening deeply enough that it has permanently transformed their relationship to themselves and to reality, while allowing them to remain involved in ordinary life.   It’s more common than you think.  The breakthroughs experienced are startlingly similar and marked by a new sense of well-being, increased joy in life, diminished fear, and a natural impulse to serve and contribute to the world in a real way. Very affirming if you’ve shared in a spiritual awakening.

Spiritual bypassing is the use of spiritual beliefs to unconsciously avoid dealing with painful feelings, unresolved wounds, and developmental needs.  It’s so pervasive, and largely goes unnoticed, and such actions often do more harm than good.

ANewEarthA New Earth – Eckhart Tolle

This book expands on the idea of living “in the now” and shows us how transcending our ego-based state of consciousness is not only essential to personal happiness, but also the key to ending conflict and suffering throughout the world.
