It is always difficult to recommend something
to the unknown reader but I guess you will pick the right
one for you anyway. Enjoy.
MY GRANDFATHER’S BLESSINGS
Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D.
Her ‘stories of strength, refuge,
and belonging’ are about regaining a sense a wholeness and trust
in one’s own life force when experiencing feelings of being fractured
by the realities of life.
I love her warm, humble and respectful attitude which is reflected in
her encounters with patients. “Compassion occurs only between
MAN’S SEARCH FOR MEANING
Victor E. Frankl
The psychiatrist V.E.Frankl writes about
his experiences in a Nazi concentration camp.
His focus is on “choosing one’s attitude in any given circumstances,
to choose one’s way.”
What sounds like a paradox at first unfolds into a very practical way

LIVING WITH IT
A SURVIVORS GUIDE TO PANIC ATTACKS
A first hand account about the signs
and symptoms of panic attacks and helpful survival strategies.

and, by doing so, facilitate access to deeper feelings that need to
be understood and nurtured.

words touched me and reminded me that getting home starts in the now.
YOUR INNER PHYSICIAN AND YOU
John E. Upledger, D.O.
This book is an insightful introduction
to CST and SER (Somato Emotional Release).
Upledger describes how he discovered the craniosacral system and the
process that led him
to explore and develop CranioSacral Therapy. He presents complex subject
matter in an easy to understand and enjoyable format.
DO WE GET SICK ?
WHY DO WE GET BETTER ?
A Wellness Detective Manual
e-book at http://www.lulu.com/content/372354
This book presents a workable model for how the different parts of you,
physical, emotional and the deeper parts, interact with each other and
how, when they are out of sync, cause symptoms. I highly recommend his
book: it opens the door to a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness
between illness and the way we perceive our own world. The questions
at the end of each chapter are the ones you’d hope to be asked
by a good friend to challenge you and help you focus.
The Stress Release Programme
Dr. Craig Hassed
He informs, from a western medical perspective, about the benefits of
meditation. This book is wonderful for everyone with a lot of conversation
going on in their heads! He gives practical advice on how the ancient
approach of meditation is useful to get in contact with the person who
thinks these thoughts in today’s life.
