For the past 27 years, I’ve been a voracious learner. I’ve always been open to and enjoyed learning about anything that could assist myself and others with becoming our best selves and living our best, most fulfilling lives!

That desire has led me to read many books and articles, watch many talks, documentaries and films on a variety of subjects; personal development and self growth, effective communication, mythology, health and wellness, spirituality, science (particularly quantum physics and neuroscience), business, women’s studies, family systems, boundaries and boundary setting, addiction, depression and anxiety, PTSD and trauma, self esteem, talent, confidence, habits, birthing practices/options, conscious parenting, near-death experiences, mysticism, metaphysics, mindfulness, meditation, new thought, callings and career change, overcoming adversity and stories or biographies of successful people and underdogs.

In the past two and a half decades I’ve read over 300 books and watched over 50 inspirational films and documentaries. When I first began teaching my courses back in 2003, many clients would ask for a categorized reading list as a resource for them on their own journey. While I couldn’t possibly include that whole list here, below is a compilation of some of the books and films I’ve enjoyed through the years. When reading or viewing anything, I always do my best to keep an open mind and focus on whatever I can take away from a book or film. I recommend the same to all my clients as I think this is best how we learn. We must be open to new things and not get caught up in or fixated on what doesn’t speak to us! Instead, we need to focus on that one chapter, paragraph or even sometimes one line that speaks to us directly and can in some way positively help us in whatever way we may currently need on our life’s journey!

Including a book or film below doesn’t mean I endorse or oppose its views. I simply share all in the spirit of resource as I’ve come to find that whenever I need something, it crosses my path at the exact, right moment in time. Perhaps a book or film below will be that for you!
