BOOKS TO SOOTHE YOUR SOUL

 

 

Raising Resilience by Christopher Willard, PSYD

In every spiritual tradition, we find teachings on the virtues and qualities that we most want to pass on to our kids—such as generosity, kindness, honesty, determination, and patience. Today, a growing body of research from neuroscience and social psychology supports these teachings, offering insights into cultivating these virtues in ourselves and in our families. Raising Resilience is a practical guide for parents and educators of children from preschool through adolescence, detailing ten universal principles for happy families and thriving children.

 

 

 

It’s Ok That You’re Not OK by Megan Devine

In It’s OK That You’re Not OK, Megan Devine offers a profound new approach to both the experience of grief and the way we try to help others who have endured tragedy. Having experienced grief from both sides—as both a therapist and as a woman who witnessed the accidental drowning of her beloved partner—Megan writes with deep insight about the unspoken truths of loss, love, and healing. She debunks the culturally prescribed goal of returning to a normal, “happy” life, replacing it with a far healthier middle path, one that invites us to build a life alongside grief rather than seeking to overcome it.

    I would love to win these new books to help me with self development. I am at a stage in my life that it would truly help and not only me but loved ones. Because if I better myself, my loved ones better themselves to. It’s a pay it forward thing. I would share it with others. I would make the books come to not only life but frutation.

    I would love to read all of these books (the Millman ones again!) but I would particularly like to read the one about grief. My best friend lost his daughter just before her 13th birthday, and he and his wife are still struggling, 16 months later. I’d like to read it for myself, and to pass it on to them.

    As a seeker I am always looking for more quality works to add to my ever-expanding library. The audiobook would be a welcome addition for my work commute.

    I would love to win these books as I am at a Crossroads in my life. After losing my 29 year old daughter last year I just don’t know how to find peace and really live life.!! I feel like I am faking it. I’m scared of letting my grief come to the surface….it’s just too painful. I believe all three books would help me. Thank you for the opportunity. Mary Musso

    I would love to win as they all sound very interesting and enlightening especially It’s ok that you’re not ok. I’ve struggled with various things all my life but the last 4 years have been and still are the worst in terms of intensity and closeness in time, since losing the 3 closest people to me one after the other, my stepdad who raised me, my marriage of 20 years since age 21 then to top it all off my Mum out of the blue. She was always my closest parent. Still struggling to deal with her estate and even though sometimes I know its not true, I often feel like I am never going to get over and through all this. It still affects me every day and every day is a struggle. I dont feel like I am over any of the 3 losses. I am hard on myself and dont love and accept and care for myself the way I should and none of this helps in the situation either. The title grabbed me for all those reasons. I know people have and are going through much worse things in this world and so theres still much to be grateful for but that doesnt stop the pain and struggle at times.

    I realized early on that the more you learn, the more you realize you have to learn. It took me much longer to realize that this endeavor is a beautiful, lifelong journey. Dan Millman’s first book actually played a big role in that shift and I’m a huge, grateful fan. My significant other came from this mentality of, “That’s just the way I am and you need to accept it,” and although it took years, we finally deciphered the difference between trying to change one another versus learning and growing, both individually, and as a couple. We recently made a commitment to one another with this fresh belief in growing for the rest of our lives on behalf of ourselves, our family, and our tribe. These books would be a fantastic way to start this journey.

    I Am a 65 years young,self-help guru and spiritual student on the awakening journey. I suffered severe agoraphobia for fifteen years,early in my marriage, while being a devoted mother of Three. I was totally incapacitated and felt like a prisoner in my own home. Dan Milmans book The Peaceful Warrior was one of my many treasured books that helped me on my healing journey. I have been an avid fan of sounds true and their multitude of programs and authors for years. Through sounds true and other self help programs on mindfulness and meditation I fought my way to where I am today. A healthy young senior who thinks of herself as the Peaceful Warrior, ready to be in service as a light worker to all I meet. Having this package in my toolkit would help facilitate this intention!

    These books would help me deal with my 98 year old mother who has spent her years critizing me. It is more vile than ever as she blames me for everything in her life [she lives in a nice retirement home] & perfers to be the ‘victim’. I don’t want to end her life full of resentment & pain which are bubbling under the surface & eating away at me so need some skills to provide comfort in her last few years

    I have a grandaughter who is searching to find who she is in this very difficult and confusing culture. She is reaching out and asking question and trying to come out of the fog of medications doctors put her on for depression. It’s heart breaking to see how the medical system has taken over this young women’s life and convinced her that there is a medication for every feeling she is experiencing. I, as a grandmother am very upset that she is on so many medications and now in search of identity she thinks she is a boy. Of course her therapist is willing to prescribe testesteron without making sure that it’s a right path for her. I am hopeful thay she will find herself because she is reaching out and asking good question about meaning of life, looking through my books and even willing to go to our sangha at our Buddhist Center here in Philadelphia. I think the books would be great for her to start her on her own path of healing.
    Thank you very much

    P.S. We the family do not comment and contrdict her doctors recomendation understanding thay it would be more confusing and damiging to her.

    These lovely works of art would aid in my already blessed fight in/of life. I recently found gems such as “women who run with the wolves” via sounds true and since then have been plugged into your podcasts and absorbed every gem of knowledge and experience I could possible receive from your platform. Having just overcome homelessness and dejection from an overculture I am just finding my roots within myself internally, and new home externally. I have found my art and priceless wisdoms to keep me afloat whilst I struggle everyday in fight with my chronic illness in a new life and new identity. I am independent but truly depend on the works of doctors/writers/people of experience on your show/site and many like yours. On weeks of disparity and healing I find hope in these works and would love nothing more then to growl with those gifts and one day be well enough to give back in writing art and therapy myself. Thank you.

    I am a psychiatric nurse working in a crisis clinic. Winning these amazing books would not only be a personal benefit, it would also benefit the community I work in where I would be sharing the knowledge gleaned from these books. I would also share these books in our clinician library that we are piecing together so that the knowledge is as widely shared as possible.

    I would like to win because as a student in spiritual care and psychotherapy I am always looking to stay on top of great resources so that I can bring these ideas into assisting others in their own spiritual journey and healing physical, psychologically and spiritually!

    I would love to win, the grief book speaks to me as I’m pregnant with my second child. While pregnant with my first I was heavily grieving the loss of my Mother, and I appreciate the idea of finding a middle ground instead of trying to return to a normal “happy” life.

    All the titles speak to me. Within the last month I lost my grandma and my husband his dad. Finding peace and getting through these times knowing all is ok is my dream now.

    I would like to win these books because during this financial and physical hardship I am experiencing at this time it would be a great answer to prayer do you have tools to help me learn to be OK to feel feelings, be vulnerable and courageous, as well as learning how to grieve my old ideas and create a new life.
