Resources

I found Kirsten Hale – aka. The Crazy Herbalist – ‘s resources page, which she made because she found Jim Mcdonald’s resources page, and I’m just jumping on the bandwagon.

So here’s some of the stuff that’s helped me, I hope you get as much out of it as I have 🙂

Podcasts

Chris Grosso interviews Sera Beak about sexuality, being female, being spiritual and facing our demons.

 

Books 

Red Hot and Holy by Sera Beak. Sassy and divinely feminine. Both accessible and unorthodox.

Birthrites by Jackie Singer. Kind and powerful, a book which gives support and instruction for various stages of female life – focusing on fertility, birth and beyond. She also talks beautifully about infertility and other female issues.

Liberating Love a collection of accounts from the communities of Zegg and Tamera. An exploration into ‘free love’, or ‘polyamory’ or whatever else you want to call it. It changed my perspective. On a similar note…

Eros Unredeemed by Dieter Duhm. The power of sexuality. Changing views on sexual love. Freedom.

The Yoga of Eating by Charles Eisenstein. Not a set of practices or a book of principles. Precisely the opposite – how to transcend dogma and become more conscious, more realistic and self-loving by understanding food. Realise that you already know, another liberator.

The End of Money and the future of civilisation. By Thomas Greco. Very empowering. And very simply and clearly written, busts the myth the money is difficult to understand.

 

Poetry

Readings in Classical Chinese Philosophy. Contains much of Confucius’ analects, Laozi, Zhuangzu (both Taoist poets / philosophers) and some contrasting authors from the Classical period of Chinese history.

Abre La Puerta by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.

A Hopi Elder Speaks

 

My stuff!!

Photography: My photoblog

Writings: My other blog (I’m working on integrating it with this one, bear with me)

I write about my emotions, things that have triggered me, how I’m dealing with it, etc. The process of writing is extraordinarily therapeutic for me so that’s mainly why I do it. I also think there is great power in reading someone else’s story.

Poems: To share myself with youI am all of itdon’t hide your sadness away
