Finding Yourself — A Love Story

This short story, written by Katharine Rivers, who attended one of our retreats, tells a personal story—a human story that many of us will relate to. She beautifully and honestly shares a part of her journey and opens the curtains so that we can all see inside her—her self-talk, comparisons, judgments, ranking system . . . and her heart.

reology-finding-yourself-cover-3dWe are invited to travel with the author as she finds herself, no longer needing to hide—from others or herself.

If you feel like taking a short ride, having a good laugh, and possibly bumping into yourself along the way, download and read this very human tale.

Get Weird — by Jake Eagle

This award-winning book is written as a conversation–questions and answers, back and forth between two central characters who are brothers trying to heal their relationship. One of the reasons this format is helpful is because the book teaches us a new way to communicate by allowing us to listen in on this very personal conversation.

The story between the brothers is tender, honest, vulnerable and funny at times. It is an easy read with many profound lessons. It teaches us a unique way to communicate–so that we stay present and open-minded, which eliminates tension and conflict.

This book also provides fascinating strategies to help us if we feel overwhelmed, conflicted, or depressed.

This book shows us a new way to speak to ourselves and other people. It is like a mindfulness practice we can use every time we speak, and by doing so we center ourselves, empower ourselves, and create clear boundaries.
