General Supportive Reading

4 July, 2012

Here’s a selection of reading materials.

Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh was published in 1955 and its simple, clear messages are still relevant in today’s world.

Michael Leunig has drawn, written and spoken about life issues, politics, emotional and spiritual living in a funny, sublime, philosophical, controversial and profound way for the last 40 years.  You’ll know his cartoons.  His books include The Prayer Tree which I discovered at a book reading, and lingers in my mind.

 Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way guides you to your inner artist and your creativity, freeing you from limiting beliefs, doubts, fear and self-sabotage.

For those struggling with family conflicts and issues, John Bradshaw’s  books go deep into how the family impact’s our lives, and helps readers deal with truths while staying connected to our families.  See : Family Secrets: The Path from Shame to Healing.

Victor Frankl  Man’s Search for Freedom – the triumph of the human spirit explained.

Robert A Johnson, Ken Wilbur, Carl Rogers are all important writers on psychology and solutions-focused coaching.  Joseph Campbell’s Hero with a Thousand Faces is an important work on understanding archetypes.

Jon Kabat-Zinn has written on mindfulness and how to use it to deal with stress and illness in Full Catastrophe Living. Calming your Anxious Mind is a book on using mindfulness to help with anxiety.
