Recommended Reading

These are the books that come up in class that are recommended additional reading.

Not surprisingly being a book worm I’ve read most of these and enjoyed them thoroughly!

Autobiography of a Yogi (Mass Market Paperback)

One of my favorite books of all time is Autobiography of a Yogi. It’s one of the few books that I actually have read multiple times. I have a copy in the prairies and am resisting the urge to purchase another copy here. Every time I read this book my world view changes and I’m inspired to more pursue the activities that interest me spiritually.

Anatomy of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Power and Healing

This is an amazing book. Just amazing book. Super informative. Guru Raj Kaur recommended anything by Carolinne Myss as she talks a lot of woundology and victim states and archetypes. Its great for energy and intuitive healers of all kinds; anyone really who is interested in healing others.

How to Know God: The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali

This is actually a course required book. I am just making my way through it right now. It is one of the founding books of Yoga written by the guy who founded all yoga. Pretty crazy, eh? Love it!

Dharma Punx

One of my favourite books. This is about a man’s journey from punk to Buddhist without loosing any parts of self. Noah writes of his journey from rebellion to integration. Noah Levine is the son of Stephen Levine, a best selling Buddhist author.

The Yoga of Eating: Transcending Diets and Dogma to Nourish the Natural Self

I was super impressed with this book. In fact, I took it out from the library, read it in an afternoon and took pictures of every page I wanted to keep with me as reference. A very good read!

Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers

I haven’t read this book yet but it was recommended by Hari Singh, as was the next book on this list (also unread by moi).

Wheat Belly

I haven’t read this book. I’m kind of scared to read these wheat books. I’ve known people who’ve read them and its revolutionary for them. I also feel like I know wheat is not good for me, is reading this book going to make me feel better or worse after reading it when I sometimes eat wheat products despite knowing it won’t be good for my system atm?

The Soul’s Code: In Search of Character and Calling

I remember Guru Raj getting excited when she was speaking about this book. She talked about it in relation to our Soul Body and I have noted beside it “The Acorn Theory”.
