Other Great Books That I Love that focus on personal growth/spirituality. I believe in a whole person approach to health:

Truly fascinating book. Talks about the new scientific revolution. Our thoughts actually create a chemical need in our cells that  become addicted to certain repetitive thoughts. Mind blowing. Worth the read.

Fabulous exercises to prove to yourself that there is more than just the human brain that plays a role in our lives. My favorite was “The Dude Abides”exercise.

This was one of the first books I read that launched my spiritual growth inquiry. Love Alan Cohen’s writing, he tells great stories to  illustrate spiritual principles.

Don’t think the title really does justice to this book. It’s one of my favorites. So many great spiritual principles are covered. It’s my “go-to” Alan Cohen book.
