How to Be an Adult: A Handbook on Psychological and Spiritual Integration

David Richo

$12.95 $11.91

This incredible book was gifted to me by a client who is also a therapist. Each chapter provides bite-size nuggets of info that feel both incredibly "right" and familiar, while at the same time prompting new connections and "a-ha" moments. I wish I'd had this book by my side years ago-- I plan to pick it up and read it regularly for the rest of my life!

The Joy of Living: Unlocking the Secret and Science of Happiness

Eric Swanson and Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

$15.99 $14.71

Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche merges the ancient wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism with cutting-edge neuroscience. The style of meditation taught in this book is user-friendly; it's what I teach my students.

Tara Brach

$18.00 $16.56

This (along with her second book) are two of my favorite resources to recommend for those interested in making compassionate change in their lives. Tara Brach is empathetic and kind-- you'll feel as though you've found a new friend.
