RECOMMENDED READINGS

Books mean a lot to me. They are always a good source of inspiration and sometimes deliver this
little bit of realization which is needed in a particular moment of life.

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.
ISBN 1573228567

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 equals.”


MAN’S SEARCH FOR MEANING
Victor E. Frankl
ISBN 0671023373

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 of being.
The reader witnesses the powerful shift from resistance to acceptance of the given condition. Only then the unimaginable becomes possible: to find personal meaning and growth; and to see the world from a different perspective.


LIVING WITH IT
A SURVIVORS GUIDE TO PANIC ATTACKS

Bev Aisbett
ISBN 0207180407

A first hand account about the signs and symptoms of panic attacks and helpful survival strategies.
I enjoy how effortlessly the cartoons capture emotions of fear and anxiety and, by doing so, facilitate access to deeper feelings that need to be understood and nurtured.


STILLNESS SPEAKS
Eckard Tolle
ISBN 0340829745

A collection of profound wisdom, his words touched me and reminded me that getting home starts in the now.


YOUR INNER PHYSICIAN AND YOU
John E. Upledger, D.O.
ISBN 1556432461

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.

WHY DO WE GET SICK ?
WHY DO WE GET BETTER ?

A Wellness Detective Manual
John Dalton
ISBN 978-1-84753-965-6
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.

KNOW THYSELF
The Stress Release Programme
Dr. Craig Hassed
ISBN 978-0855723361

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.
