Happy Monday!! Let’s go deep in our souls this Monday and explore some recommends from our Philosophy, Religion and Spirituality Sections. 

Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief 
By Lawrence Wright

I loved it! Mystery, danger, adventure, and of course, Tom Cruise! This book has it all. A fascinating read all-around. I recommend it to anyone interested in the founding of a modern American religion.

Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year 
By Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato is wise beyond her years. She has created this book of daily reminders to be kind to yourself and to stay excited about life. Great gift for all ages.

Going to Pieces Without Falling Apart: A Buddhist Perspective on Wholeness
By Mark Epstein

All of what I love about this book won’t fit here. To be not long-winded: It is a writing that provides true relief to those of us who shudder at feelings of emptiness and/or inadequacy. Instead of tools to banish such uncomfortable states, Epstein offers the Buddhist approach: allow it all, tolerate it all. Yet he is also a psychotherapist and therefore weaves his chapters with first-hand hope and expertise about how to accept like Buddha and confront like a well, like a therapist.

Angels in My Hair
By Lorna Byrne

A soul-stirring memoir by a humble rural Irish woman gifted with angel communication. She recounts the trials of growing up poor amidst civil unrest and being labeled “retarded”. The support of these powerful energies was her saving grace, and their love and peace radiate from the pages. You’ll feel and envision them for days.
