Books of the Summer

Everything gets better when I read. My awareness. My marriage. My health. My joy. My energy. All of it gets an uptick in a better and more beautiful direction.

Here’s a few of the books I’ve enjoyed over the last couple months.

The Third Plate – Dan Barber

third

You may recognize the author, Dan Barber, from one of the episodes of Chef’s Table on Netflix. You’ll find it packed with incredible stories and if you’ve never awakened your inner foodie this will do it.

How To Be Here – Rob Bell

All too often we hold on to our yesterday’s and prematurely jump into our tomorrow’s. Rob wonderfully unpacks just how electric our present moments are with the wonder and awe that we are truly after. Rob joined us earlier this year at Let The Music Play Podcast to talk about How To Be Here.

Biocentrism – Robert Lanza

bio

You know the world isn’t flat and, hopefully, that finding meaning isn’t linear. But wait until you learn about consciousness.

Becoming Wise – Krista Tippett

Krista’s work at OnBeing is truly one of my most cherished gifts I’ve experienced over the last few years. In Becoming Wise she takes the gold gathered from many of her interviews over the years and couples it with her insight and personal alchemy. Krista, from all of us, thank you.

Present Over Perfect – Shauna Niequist

From the author that brought us Bread and Wine, comes a lovely memoir that is mapped full of roads to more peace, fulfillment, and simplicity. PS – She may be joining us at LTMP Podcast soon.

Enjoy.
