Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

The Intimate Life: Awakening to the Spiritual Essence in Yourself and Others

The Intimate Life: Awakening to the Spiritual Essence in Yourself and Others - Judith Blackstone This book was given to me and I am so grateful. I highly recommend finding a teacher to do the meditations with you, as it's pretty difficult to figure out on your own (at least for me!). This is a book I shall be reading again and again, as I deepen this practice of connecting with the spiritual essence in myself and all beings. The language can be quite dense, but she also sprinkles some "real-life" stories to explain each meditation, which I find really helpful.
