So it’s no secret that I love to read. I talk about books that I’m reading all the time in my classes and a lot of classes are themed from things I’m currently reading. Students have asked me about these books and often ask me for book recommendations as well, so I’ve decided to start posting the books that I read each month with a few words on each.
Here is my reading list from January:
Dancing in the Flames – Marion Woodman
This book rocked my world! One of those books that came in right at the perfect time. Marion Woodman is a Jungian psychiatrist and this book is all about images of the goddess in our lives and in our dreams and what it means to accept the energy of the goddess into our life.
Daring Greatly – Brene Brown
A great book all about vulnerability and daring greatly. I recommend everyone read this book, and check out Brene Brown’s TED talks. They will change your life 🙂
Paths to God – Ram Dass
Wasn’t actually what I was expecting, but I still really enjoyed it.
The Courage to Teach & Teaching Guide – Parker Palmer
Great books even if you don’t teach. Tons of great motivational material for teachers. The books really tap into what it means to be a teacher and the role we serve to our students.
Cool Yoga Tricks – Miriam Austin
Actually a really bad name for the book, as there is some great info in here. Well illustrated and some great prop suggestions and pose variations.
