The Books I Picked & Why

The Power of Energy Medicine: Your Natural Prescription for Resilient Health

By Hilary Crowley

The Power of Energy Medicine: Your Natural Prescription for Resilient Health

Why this book?

I absolutely love this book. When I first picked it up, I’ll admit, I was skeptical. I know a lot about Energy Medicine, and I wasn’t sure what new information I’d learn. It turned out to be one of those books that you cannot put down. The author has an engaging and friendly voice, while also being an astute authority on her topic. Her stories draw you in and open your mind to the possibilities that there is so much more that we don’t know about how the body/mind/spirit works. But this book also allows you to experience her process and get a taste of the power you hold within yourself to accelerate healing.

Tuning the Human Biofield: Healing with Vibrational Sound Therapy

By Eileen Day McKusick

Tuning the Human Biofield: Healing with Vibrational Sound Therapy

Why this book?

If you want your mind blown, and want to cultivate a new understanding of how the universe works: buy this book! Eileen opens up the cosmology that we all learned and shows us that there is another way to view how the world works. And with that understanding, we have a way to see ourselves as part of the world instead of separate from it. This connection is the start of healing. And all of that is only the first half of the book. 

She then takes the reader on a wild ride into understanding how the field that surrounds the body – called the aura or the biofield – works, holds information, and also holds one of the keys to healing and well-being. This book is engaging, inspirational, and totally not what you were expecting!

Radiant Rest: Yoga Nidra for Deep Relaxation and Awakened Clarity

By Tracee Stanley

Radiant Rest: Yoga Nidra for Deep Relaxation and Awakened Clarity

Why this book?

In our house, we now talk about having a Tracee Stanley day, or hour, or time out. A time to nurture deeply and find peace and rejuvenation. In the busy world we all live in, this is a must-do practice.  Tracee’s book is wonderful, clear and comprehensive, and gives so much valuable information on why it is important to rest, why we resist rest, and what we gain by taking rest. Many people think working harder is the way to go, but Tracee lovingly and convincingly teaches the opposite. The more you nurture yourself, the more you are able to show up in your life with wisdom, calm, and energy.

The Five Elements: Understand Yourself and Enhance Your Relationships with the Wisdom of the World's Oldest Personality Type System

By Dondi Dahlin

The Five Elements: Understand Yourself and Enhance Your Relationships with the Wisdom of the World's Oldest Personality Type System

Why this book?

Dondi Dahlin’s book was a total surprise to me! I thought I knew a lot about the 5 Element theory, and wondered what she might add to the conversation. This was another book I could not put down. Her storytelling chops are amazing, and even if I wasn’t interested in the subject, she had me at hello. I was thrilled with the journey she brought me on. And I learned so much about myself, and about how people act the way they do. But more than that, I also learned valuable tools on how to interact better with people, how to extend compassion to myself and others, and how to see the world through a different lens. I adore this book!

Cosmometry: Exploring the HoloFractal Nature of the Cosmos

By Marshall Lefferts

Cosmometry: Exploring the HoloFractal Nature of the Cosmos

Why this book?

This book is dogeared, highlighted, sticky noted, and I go back to it again and again. Now I will admit, I’m a science junkie, and I love to deepen my understanding of how the universe works. But I’m also not a scientist. Marshall’s book is accessible and scintillating, while at the same time teaching valuable and powerful lessons about physics, the nature of the universe, the nature of connection, sound, torsion, so much! If you like science but you’re afraid of big science books, this might be the time to treat yourself. This is one of those books you’ll go back to over and over again and always find something new to spark you!
