PARENTING:  

Dr. Shefali Tsabary

Acclaimed author and wisdom teacher, Dr. Shefali has been endorsed by Oprah Winfrey and countless other thought leaders.  Dr. Shefali has written several books including The Awakened Family and Out of Control. In this revolutionary book, Dr. Shefali takes you on a journey to transcending your fears and illusions around parenting and helps you become the parent you always wanted to be.  This book provides hands-on, practical strategies and real life examples to become a conscious parent. It brings into question outdated modes of parenting our children, fostering connection over conflict.  I absolutely love the combining of East meets West philosophy and I trained in Dr. Shefali's Conscious Parenting Institute.

Smart Love

Smart Love's groundbreaking theory of "loving regulation" completely informed my parenting life.  Smart Love questions traditional forms of discipline and punishment and focuses on loving connection between parents and their children. Smart Love is a caring and patient approach to parenting created by Dr. William Pieper and Dr. Martha Heineman Pieper.  In my opinion, it is one of the first books to dispel the myth that discipline and punishment are effective ways to create change in your household.  Smart Love helps to cultivate children's inner happiness while managing their behavior in age-appropriate ways.

GoZen!

GoZen creates online social and emotional learning for kids ages 5-15.  Their mission is to reach 1 million kids to transform stress, anxiety, worry, anger, perfectionism, negativity and social worry into power!  GoZen was started by mastermind Renee Jain.  Renee Jain also authors a book with Dr. Shefali Tsabary titled Superpowered: Transform Anxiety into Courage, Confidence and Resilience.  

The Motherhood Evolution: How Thriving Mothers Raise Thriving Children

This beautiful book is written by Suzi Lula, spiritual counselor.  In it, Suzi tells of the important need in our culture to recognize the deep self care women and mothers need to truly honor themselves. I know firsthand that women, especially mothers, put themselves in last position when it comes to taking care of the household.  Suzi Lula calls for women to honor themselves in first position -- the idea of filling your own tank before filling those around you.     

 

SPIRITUALITY:

The Biology of Belief

The Biology of Belief is considered groundbreaking work in the field of new biology. Former medical school professor and research scientist Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., presents his experiments, and those of other leading-edge scientists, which examine in great detail the mechanisms by which cells receive and process information. Dr. Lipton invited me to examine my existing belief systems in such a way that led me to question those beliefs and ultimately change my thoughts.

The Power of Now

In this book, Eckhart Tolle describes how we can connect to the essence of our being. The Power of Now is a rare book that draws the reader in and can radically change our lives.  This book has widely been recognized as one of the most spiritual books of our time. 

The Power of Intention

In The Power of Intention, Wayne Dyer brings intention to the forefront and describes how it acts as a force in the Universe - an energy that we are all a part of and have access to.  Our all creating universal mind of intention is powerful enough to be creative, kind, loving, beautiful, expanding, abundant, and receptive!  I am inspired every time I read a chapter of this book.

EWG empowers people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. With breakthrough research and education, it inspires us to civic action and more conscious choices.

Beautycounter

A collection of clean products to detoxify your beauty regime. I have been working with this intentional B-corp for several years.  Beautycounter bans over 1500+ ingredients from their products. 

Radical Remission & Radical Hope

New York Times best-selling author Dr. Kelly A. Turner, PhD, traveled the globe studying 1,500 cases of radical remission— patients who had complete reversal of a serious or terminal cancer diagnosis—and discovered they shared nine common healing factors. This groundbreaking research is presented in Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds. This book played a large part in my healing from breast cancer and Radical Hope is also a great read.
