Recommended by therapist Lisa King Smith, EdS, LPC, CPCS, CCTP: "How do we keep moving forward when it feels like everything around us is crumbling? Most of the time we want to run away from the pain and suffering we experience, but what would happen if we instead decided to run toward it? Pema Chodron shows the reader that once we learn to embrace our pain and allow it to change us through our heart we have a better opportunity to become more resilient and loving human beings."

Man's Search for Meaning

Viktor E. Frankl

$16.00 $14.88

Recommended by therapist Lisa King Smith, EdS, LPC, CPCS, CCTP: "Viktor Frankel wrote this book in 9 days, not long after being released from a Nazi death camp after World War II. Dr. Frankel writes about his experiences in multiple Nazi concentration camps and what he discovers about the human experience, and our ability to be resilient and loving human beings, despite living through a nightmare experience and seeing the absolute worst in human behavior. One of the many quotes from this book that Viktor Frankel is famous for: “When we are no longer able to control a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” This book is life changing and a go to for gaining perspective during challenging times."

Devotions: The Selected Poems of Mary Oliver

Devotions: The Selected Poems of Mary Oliver

Mary Oliver

$31.00 $28.83

"Wild Geese," my all-time favorite poem, is available here as it is in lots of different poetry collections (let me know if this one is priced out of what you'd like to spend), but this is Mary Oliver's magnum opus, her final collection, spanning poetry over five decades, arranged by the poet herself before her death. I am slowly making my way through every page and have found so many poems, new and well-known, to add to my list of go-tos in times of trouble and in times of joy.
