Favorite Spiritual/Personal Growth

I can trace my personal journey very much via the books that spoke to me at various points in time. It always amazes me how so often just the right book at just the right time would come across my path. I have listed the ones that made specific, lasting impacts on my life. In addition to books, I have found podcasts, audiobooks and talks to be very helpful and meaningful.

On Being podcast 

or via iTunes. Or via the On Being app.

On Being opens up the animating questions at the center of human life: What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live? We explore these questions in their richness and complexity in 21st-century lives and endeavors. We pursue wisdom and moral imagination as much as knowledge; we esteem nuance and poetry as much as fact.
