On the Bookshelf– January 30, 2012
First, my apologies for being absent for so long from the Bookshelf! The holidays interfered with my reading schedule a bit, and I honestly do *not* know where January has gone! Nevertheless, my latest read….
“No Boundary” by Ken Wilber.
This is a terrific read as an introduction to deeper encounters with the Self. For the most part, the author writes in clear, easy to follow language that any non-psychologist/therapist/counselor can grasp. With the author’s background in philosophy, though, the first half of the book tends to be very philosophical in nature– so fair warning on that point. (Full disclosure: I had a *hard* time reading until about chapter 7. But that could just be me. My brain isn’t wired for philosophical discussions.) Chapters 7-10 provide less philosophy and more practical exercises for getting in touch with your deeper consciousness.
If you’re looking for a relatively short, concise book that will help you move forward on your journey to a fuller, deeper life experience– this is the book for you!
