Books have been some of my best teachers along my spiritual path. I find that they come at just the right time to offer insight into my next phase of learning and expansion.

I no longer adopt other people’s truth or experience as the “right way” but I sit with their experiences or knowing to see if it rings true for me. Sometimes only part of a book holds true for me, sometimes all of it, or sometimes what once was true no longer applies.

Below are some of the “teachers” who have lit the way for me. These beloved books do not replace your own inner wisdom but can act as friends who offer their version of the truth so that you may find your own.
