If you follow along on social, you may have noticed I repeatedly post the same few books.
Because I love these books so much, I refer to them almost daily. They’re full of such incredibly valuable knowledge and each inspires my creativity, my meditation practice, and my yoga practice.
Hope you enjoy the list and fill your bedside table and bookshelf with some of these!
Anatomy of The Spirit by Caroline Myss
Author Caroline Myss is an internationally acclaimed medical intuitive. She is INCREDIBLE. Through exploring our energy body, Myss shows how every illness corresponds to a pattern of emotional and psychological stresses, beliefs, and attitudes that have influenced corresponding areas of the human body. Anatomy of the spirit is packed with information about chakras, unlocking the power of intuition and cultivating PERSONAL power to create spiritual growth. All my favorite things. Dr. Myss shares personal stories of people she's worked with over the years, which makes the energy content more relatable and easier to digest, as well as highlights her innate strengths as an intuitive.
Wheels of Life by Anodea Judith
The very best chakra book you’ll ever own. It’s like the encyclopedia of chakras and breaks down everything about each with a meditation, physical asanas, and SO. MUCH. MORE. If you are interested in the energetic body, it’s a must have.
Practice You (Journal) by Elena Brower
The most beautiful journal I’ve ever seen, it’s almost poetic on each page. The writing prompts are profound and encourage some incredible reflection. The journal is organized by chakra, and incorporates stunningly simple watercolor illustrations that make this journal one I look to every day. It’s also a fantastic tool for theming yoga classes- for any teachers out there looking for inspiration!
Modern Tarot by Michelle Tea
My favorite guidebook to reference when studying tarot. It’s written in a modern way, throwing in the occasional curse word and now age references. Michelle Tea knows her tarot, and her personal stories she weaves into the guide are entertaining and really help apply the themes of tarot to life situations.
The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur
I must have read this book of poetry front to back 10x now, and it doesn’t get old. Rupi’s words are chillingly powerful, and each time I re-read it I pick up new meaning. Like Practice You, this book is great to draw inspiration for yoga teaching, meditations, or journaling prompts.
