The Books I Picked & Why

The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

By Eckhart Tolle

The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

Why this book?

One of the greatest benefits of breathwork is its ability to calm the mind by remaining present. The teachings in the Power of Now complement this approach. It is a wonderful, well-written book that supports readers to understand the benefits of training the mind to stay focussed and in ‘the now’. This helps the reader find ways to manage the thought patterns that contribute to stress and anxiety. A book I found genuinely insightful on my own path to manage stress.

You Can Heal Your Life

By Louise Hay

You Can Heal Your Life

Why this book?

The first self-help book I ever read was You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. This book literally changed my life and how I saw myself. It gave me a new belief in what I could achieve and most importantly, it showed me that I could take back control of my life. For the first time, I became aware that everything I felt on a daily basis was something that could be changed if I was willing to see myself differently.

Love Is Letting Go of Fear

By Gerald G. Jampolsky, Jack Keeler

Love Is Letting Go of Fear

Why this book?

When I first read this book decades ago it was a revelation, showing me that there are only two core emotions in life – ‘love’ and ‘fear’ – and which one we choose to feel will determine our quality of life and day to day experiences. This book was paramount in my understanding that addressing the stress we feel, (that eventually sits on our faces), is often much simpler than we think it is. A great read that I highly recommend for understanding our thought processes and how we can learn to feel happier.

A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "a Course in Miracles"

By Marianne Williamson

A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "a Course in Miracles"

Why this book?

About 30 years ago, one of my agents gave me a copy of the book A Course in Miracles. I was working in the fashion and beauty industry in Europe and it seemed like an odd choice for her to gift to me. But once again it was the right book at the right time for me, that showed me so much about life and purpose. A Return to Love is based on the principles in A Course of Miracles. It highlights so beautifully how we can approach concepts that are critical to our ability to live a happy, stress-free life. One of the most memorable of these for me is the power of forgiveness.
