Le bonheur

A Fully Immersive Summer!

For me the summer is the best time to be learning, stretching and expanding in new directions. Last summer I immersed myself in Crystal Healing. This summer, I made a personal commitment that I would sharpen my French language skills as well as deepen my meditation and mindfulness practices. I approached this goal by reading everything that I could get my hands on. In the process, I sharpened my leadership skills (thanks to a serendipitous encounter at my local cafe that led me to the singular, Robin Sharma). Please find my list of the books and podcasts that I personally found to be transformative on a multitude of levels. Bonne lecture (Happy reading)!
