I’m getting ready to go on my annual summer holiday and as I seem to be incapable of just reading one book at a time I tend to attempt to squeeze in 10 books into my carry on – just in case I feel inspired to read them. In most cases I might only get to one. 😉
To be honest, I rarely actually read a book from cover to cover (with a few exceptions, especially audiobooks). My style of reading tends to be dipping in and out…. which is probably why my bedside table resembles something like a book tower and my bed often resembles a resting place for non-fiction and poetry. The books I love the most have love marks in the form of scribbles, water stains from adventures in the bath, and dog-eared pages emphasising a deep soul YES.
One of the most common questions I get is “what are you reading?” and so I’ve written a blog on exactly that! Here is what is on my bedside table right now…
Deep soul yes! This is a book whose time has come. I’ve been drinking it in fast. Meggan is a wonderful writer. I’ve been waiting for it to be ushered into the world since I first heard she was writing it.
Hafez, Rumi and Kabir have my heart forever.
An amazing book regardless of whether you are a mum or not (I recommend the audiobook).
Christopher (Hareesh Wallis) was my Sanskrit scholar on my Kirtan training. I listen to the audiobook of this whopper. He is an incredible teacher, one for yoga teachers to explore as part of their study on Sanskrit and the deeper meaning of yoga.
I’ve been a student for a couple of years, this year I’m doing the daily lesson as part of my daily practice.
Haven’t started this one yet but hear good things!
If you like You Can Heal Your Life, this one is a deep dive.
This is the only book I’ve been deeply guided to through my pregnancy.
Such a fascinating read.
My friend Lisa Lister gifted this to me, loving it so far.
So informative. Peggy Macintire’s white paper on white privilege is an incredible read too.
I’ve listened to the audiobook twice now. It explores the legacy of the peaceful, goddess-worshipping cultures from our prehistoric past.
Quite a dense read, but so so fascinating. I recommend the audiobook.
My friend Hollie Holden raved to me about this gorgeous deck.
I first read this in my early 20’s. After reading a passage from it at the ceremony of my friend Amy Kiberd’s wedding I’ve pulled it out again and am getting so much from it. It’s a great exploration of the soul in the Celtic tradition.
