These books have all had a dramatic shift in how I show up in the world at some time. Yes, some of these I read decades ago and still re-read.
Living in the light
Personal growth pioneer Shakti Gawain has been mentoring readers toward optimal living for three decades. Her books are ever-vital classics that not only broke ground for peers such as Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, and Don Miguel Ruiz but continue to empower succeeding generations of seekers and teachers. Here, with her trademark insight and accessibility, Gawain highlights the transformative power of bringing the light of awareness to every aspect of the self — intuitive wisdom and rationality, power and vulnerability, peacemaker and warrior. Exercises on subjects including creativity, the world as mirror, relationships, parenting, money, health, and transforming the world help readers put Gawain’s teachings to personal, practical use. Together they compose a comprehensive map to growth, fulfillment, and heightened consciousness.

Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life
Lucidly and beautifully written, PEACE IS EVERY STEP contains commentaries and meditations, personal anecdotes and stories from Nhat Hanh’s experiences as a peace activist, teacher, and community leader. It begins where the reader already is – in the kitchen, office, driving a car, walking in a park – and shows how deep meditative presence is available now. Nhat Hanh provides exercises to increase our awareness of our own body and mind through conscious breathing, which can bring immediate joy and peace. Nhat Hanh also shows how to be aware of relationships with others and of the world around us, its beauty and also its pollution and injustices. The deceptively simple practices of PEACE IN EVERY STEP encourage the reader to work for peace in the world as he or she continues to work on sustaining inner peace by turning the ‘mindness’ into the mindful.

The 5 Levels of Leadership: Proven Steps to Maximize Your Potential
True leadership isn’t a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. In his seminal work, leadership guru John Maxwell presents readers with the five stages of leadership and explains how to maximize each one to become more influential, respected and successful:
1. Position – People follow because they have to.
2. Permission – People follow because they want to.
3. Production – People follow because of what you have done for the organization.
4. People Development – People follow because of what you have done for them personally.
5. Pinnacle – People follow because of who you are and what you represent.
