Books, Websites and People … for Holistic Business and Life
Here you will find products, books websites and people who will help you move from chaos to creativity. The Resources and Products I suggest emphasize entrepreneurial thinking and a whole life perspective. Whatever your goals include, it’s important to know you work for yourself and all aspects of your life are interconnected.
For those who want the bottom line in resources, the following are my current favorites – resources I consider essential in ALL areas in life that I return to over and over again:
- The Four Fold Way, Walking the Paths of the Warrior, Teacher, Healer and Visionary, by Angeles Arrien
(The book I’m using for both business and personal development – a powerful double wammy!)
- Crossing the Unknown Sea, Work as a Pilgrimage of Identity, by David Whyte
(David Whyte is brilliant in inspiring us to follow our gifts and most heartfelt desires.)
- The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream, by Paulo Coelho
(Popular fiction, a very short, simple tale about a man following his dreams and how he awakens his internal power in the process. It’s the story of all of our lives when we dare to wake-up.)
- The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle
(The best explanation I’ve found for the power of reflection, the dangers of obsessive thinking and how to find that quiet and wise place within.)
- A Whole New Mind: Moving from the Information Age to the Conceptual Age, by Daniel Pink
(New in 2005, I’m thrilled with Pink’s latest work. Dan gives a clear and logical explanation for why it’s critical for us to bring our whole selves to work and life … the justification I’ve been waiting for for whole person and holistic business approaches. Hurray!)
I also highly recommend using binaural beat technology to enhance meditation experience. Using this technology will help calm and quiet your mind, bring up and make available for clearing any emotional blocks you are holding, and take your mind into the elusive and deeper delta-wave meditative state. You can read more about brainwave technology here.
If you would like to try binaural beat technology, I recommend the CD sold by Immrama Institute available at: www.immrama.org. You can order their Insights CD here or from their website. This resource is inexpensive, simple and effective.
