Reading List

These are a variety of introductory and intermediate level books that help set the foundation for spiritual practice. The frameworks may vary across traditions, but the universal principles are consistent.

    Dear Angela,
    I love your second Instagram–very nice.
    One thought for you, on the first one: Do we “fight” our “enemies”, or do we stand in the Truth (as in Satygraha) with those who are in separation?

      I used the word fight because I meant the word fight. I dont subscribe to the philosophy that your comment implies.
