I absolutely love to read! After a busy summer with no time to myself, I’m voraciously reading again! I actually bought a pile of books right at the beginning of the summer, I couldn’t help myself. Now I’m preparing for the Women’s Retreat coming up in October and I feel desperate to finish a few. Namely, this one:
Women who Run with the Wolves; Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype by Clariss Pinkola Estes, Ph.D.
I actually just finished it. It is one of the best books I have ever read. Seriously. I think I need to read it 10 more times. It will definitely be a book I refer to for years to come. Y’all, EVERY WOMAN should read this book! Danielle LaPorte said that about it too which is why I bought it, and I completely agree. The subconscious understands metaphor better than anything. This book uses stories in the ancient traditional way of giving us metaphors and symbolism to understand our spiritual journey, to connect us to our natural, our innate, our Intuitive “Wild Woman”.
Here’s a few other books in my pile:
The Whole-Brain Child; 12 revolutionary strategies to nurture your child’s developing mind. by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. and Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.
The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown
The Chalice & The Blade; Our History, our Future by Riane Eisler
Daring Greatly by Brene Brown
Do the Work by Steven Pressfield
Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown
Awaken the Giant Within by Tony Robbins
Yeah, there’s a lot of Brene Brown in there. I’m embarrassed to say that I haven’t read her books. I love everything she says, so it’s about time I read her books!
Do you have any incredible books you’d like to recommend? What’s the best book you’ve read in a long time?
