The Reading Room is a collection of books that I would like to share with you.
The sections below will guide you through the main categories of my explorations and discoveries.
A. R. T.
= Acceptance + Reflections + Transformation
In the A.R.T. Project: reviews relating to acceptance, reflection and transformation
the identity matrix: reviews relating to body, mind, heart, soul and spirit
all of your energies
and the full essence
of your Being
tools of discovery and empowerment: reviews relating to joy & compassion, creativity, mindfulness, philosophy, symbols & images
symbols and images are powerful sources of information
I feature books, articles and blog posts that I hope will open the doors to soul-ful exploration and discovery. Reading encourages me to explore deeper awareness and understanding, finding balance and connection in life and thinking.
It is my hope that you find the books interesting and supportive for your holistic journey. Please let me know if there are different books I should read as well and review here for the other readers to consider.
The Reading Room is a continually evolving source of reading resources as tools for personal discovery and growth. Please click the title-link for the related reading review and more information.
