Spirituality/Personal Growth

The 5 Personality Patterns by Steven Kessler

[Paperback]

Certainly the best book I have read on understanding personality, defense patterns, and how to release our defenses and return to our true Essence. You’ll also learn how to work with people with the 5 different defense patterns without getting triggered yourself (or how to come back to your Self when you get triggered)! Steven Kessler has put in layman’s terms a system I have studied and worked with for years. I recommend this book to everyone.

Do You Do It or Does It Do You?:How to Let the Universe Meditate You

Alan Watts was before his time, to be sure.  He makes eastern philosophy understandable to the western mind.  He’s also quite entertaining in his intellectual sort of way.  A powerful charisma.



Life Visioning: A Four-Stage Evolutionary Journey to Live as Divine

[6-CD Audio Book]

This CD set had a major impact on my life.  I learned Life Visioning for the first time and it was pivotal in my decision to become an Interfaith minister.  It’s refreshing in that it’s not about trying to figure it out and plan the steps – it’s more about letting the Divine flow through you and reveal to you how It wants to express in your life!  I like the 6 CDs because he gives in-depth teachings, especially about the levels of spiritual development.  Many gems here.



Life Visioning: A Four-Stage Evolutionary Journey to Live as Divine

For those who don’t want to purchase the 6 CD set, this gets right down to the Life Visioning Process and leads you through one.
