This list will include only books that I have read more than once or definitely will read again.
First on the list, because I return to it again and again, is The Wisdom of Yoga by Stephen Cope. I shared the poem below, from this book, in class a few weeks ago.
For a few laughs, I recommend Yoga Bitch by Suzanne Morrison
A little more on the serious side... a book about meditation, Gradual Awakening, by Stephen Levine.
A book I am currently absorbed in, Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future (and a way to get there from here) by Bruce Lipton and Steve Bhaerman, offers insight into biology, belief, behaviour and where to focus for evolution and growth.
A great Kindle book, Thriving in Chaos by Sandy Dow, contains tips for calming the nervous system. The book version will be out in the fall. It's super handy for stressful moments. You can get the Kindle app for your phone so it can be with you all the time.
Last, and certainly not least, The Man Who Planted Trees: A Story of Lost Groves, the Science of Trees, and a Plan to Save the Planet, by Jim Robbins. This book, gives a great overview of what we haven't known about trees up until recently (and really should).
This is a very short list compared to my library, so perhaps I will need to do a second instalment. Let me know what you think and what you're reading.
