Light on Yoga: The Bible of Modern Yoga...
B. K. S. Iyengar
informative and essential
After practicing yoga for a few years, I finally got around to reading about yoga. I took the advice of a few Amazon reviewers and purchased this book. Great (inspiring) pictures with concise/precise descriptions for each pose. Most helpful to me are the "Effects" sections; I am needing exercises to help with lower back, abdominal strengthening and to quiet sciatica problems. I am a cautious ...

I found his meditations fascinating
I love history, philosophy, and religion. This book covered all three subjects and kept my interest. It is not often that you get a philosopher emperor to write down his thoughts, but this is what happened here. You have a man who by all accounts was a great leader and a good man and we get to see what was important to him and what his underlying assumptions were about life. His values are ...
The Language of Letting Go (Hazelden Meditation Series)
Helpful and insightful daily tidbits for meditation, especially if you are dealing with a difficult issue and need some help getting out of your head and seeing it in a different way.
The Pursuit of God
Old LandMark Publishing, 2008
A Must Read - a practical concordance for seeking God!
So many of my favourite writers (Francis Chan, John Eldredge, Randy Alcorn, Dallas Willard) make reference to Tozer that I felt compelled to seek out his wisdom. According to the back of this edition, there are "over three million books by AW Tozer in print", and this one seems to be his defining piece of work. And wow - it's 90 pages (yep, that's all!) of power and Godly insight. This was ...
50 Days of Heaven: Reflections That Bring Eternity to Light
Tyndale House Publishers, 2006
Scriptural, easy read, great book!
Everyone should read this book, especially Christians wondering about life after death. Alcorn takes scripture and make very clear what happens after we die. This book is very easy to read and very comforting.
Healing After Loss
Very Comforting and A Wonderful Way to show You Care
The individual meditations crystallized what went through my mind after a loved one was lost. It is hard to discuss with friends the feeling of being cheated by life, or the need to hold on to the lost persons dirty socks and dishes, used magazines etc just to keep all parts of them alive in your mind. This book does that and more. It shows that what you are feeling is not uncommon and gives ...
Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life
Thich Nhat Hanh
must have for every person
This is probably the 9th copy of this book I have purchased! Most of my entire wedding ceremony speech and vows came from it. I give it to everyone special to me, especially when they are having a hard time finding peace in the moment. This book is amazing. Never read it cover to cover, and never read too many of the very short and simple passages at one time. Just read one or two and soak them ...
The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
New World Library
As a spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle is magnificent. This book is exactly as the name implies "Enlightenment". His way of describing everyday situations and that we face and putting them in perspective helps to relieve the stress of life. I am now reading it fro the second time. Whether you are religious, atheist, or agnostic, you will embrace the information in this book
The Mindful Way through Depression: Freeing Yourself from Chronic Unhappiness
The Guilford Press
Very helpful book for depression and anxiety. A whole new way of looking at thoughts and coming to terms with them.
Sandy Steen Bartholomew
I picked this book up at a craft store the other day and I love it. It has so many inspiring, modern and funky designs and ideas, great instruction. I love this book and think anyone who wants to draw/doodle better can do it. I think it will bring out the confidence and artistic talent that may be hidden in some of us!
The Miracle of Mindfulness
Beacon Press, 1975
I've never taken the time to review anything until now. This book is so simple and so thought evoking that it is always at my side. (Okay, most of the time) I just open up to a page, as many open up a Bible, and take some pearl away that always seems appropriate. Thich Nhat Hanh has truly given us a gift in his writing.
Wherever You Go, There You Are (ROUGH CUT)
Great book for life
I first saw him saying in videos available on the web and thought it was pretty nice. The poem of Derek Walcott's, 'Love after Love' that he introduced almost in any lecture was very thought-provoking. It touched my mind deeply, when it said,"There will be the time when, with elation you will greet yourself..." The words "with elation" expecially touched me. And then I read this book. It was an ...
8 Minute Meditation: Quiet Your Mind. Change Your Life.
quintessential guide to meditation for the uninitiated
8 Minute Meditation is the book for anyone who is interested in exploring meditation in order to quiet and focus the mind, but who doesn't want to delve into the religious aspects or origins. It's also great for those who are afraid to try meditation because they don't have an hour a day or more to give to a practice or think that they can't focus long enough to be successful. While ...
50 Ways to Soothe Yourself Without Food
New Harbinger Publications
A great resource to help stop mindless eating
As a psychologist, I'm frequently on the lookout for books that can help the people I work with. Dr. Albers's book is an excellent resource for people who are struggling with eating issues. As many people struggle with eating mindlessly (when they're not hungry or are upset, for example), it is important to learn other ways to cope with difficult emotions. She gives an overview of mindfulness ...
The Imitation of Christ
A true spiritual classic
"Imitation of Christ" is one of the most widely read Christian spiritual works of all time. In the Middle Ages only the Bible had a wider readership. After you start reading it, it becomes immediately obvious why this would be the case: its approachable style and the perennial good advice that emanates from its every page make this an incredibly readable and inspiring book. The book is not ...
Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul: How to Create a New You
Life Changing Book
This book changed my life. I was at a cross road and ready to begin anew when I found this book which provided me with the tools needed to continue my journey. It is very clear and concise instruction manual for getting past whatever has held you down. I especially liked the way he deals with the ego in this book, and getting over anxiety. Chopra has a unique take on the mind and body ...

Susan K Greenland
The Book I've Always Wanted To Read!
This is the book I have always wanted to read! I have long wanted to share with my children the many gifts I have gleaned through my longtime yoga and meditation practices, but have struggled to find a meaningful way to do this. This Mindful Child offers a wealth of inspiration - from personal stories about the author's family and experiences working with children all the way through to detailed ...

My Life With the Saints
Loyola Press, 2006
Wonderful Resource on the Saints, Life, and Love.
Before this book, I had never once given much to the saints of the Roman Catholic tradition other than a simple respect for the lives they lived. It was a distant relationship, one that looked on praying to the saints with quite cynically. However this book, given as a Christmas gift, has totally reversed my view of the saints and, more importantly, forced my heart to grow a little more. Fr. ...
Mindfulness in Plain English: Revised and Expanded Edition
Bhante Henepola Gunaratana
The title is incredibly accurate
This text *IS* all about presenting what can be the very challenging topic of meditation (and particularly Vipassana meditation) in words and language any person truly can understand. Moreover, the author doesn't try to appeal to and appease everyone; he is firm about what Vipassana is and isn't, about what challenges people do experience in meditation and in Vipassana, and about how it is work ...
