Radical Acceptance by Tara Brach

Book recommendation by Ali Binazir, M.D., M.Phil. from Happiness Engineering

“Tara Brach, a world-renowned meditation teacher, has a lucid and gentle explanatory style that makes mindfulness accessible to all audiences. Each short chapter explains a particular technique — e.g. mindfulness, loving-kindness (metta), deep compassion — then provides a guided meditation to practice it. It’s an indispensable reference, perhaps even more so because Brach herself uses these methods to allay her own suffering from a painful chronic condition. A gem that belongs in every library.

PS: My all-time list would also include The Power of Now (Eckhart Tolle), A Path with Heart (Jack Kornfield), Real Happiness (Sharon Salzberg), Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Awakening (Joseph Goldstein), The Untethered Soul (Michael Singer), and Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation In Everyday Life (Jon Kabat-Zinn).”

Everything is Happening at Once: A Memoir by Jonathan Marcus
Everything is Happening at Once: A Memoir by Jonathan Marcus

Book recommendation by Jonathan Marcus from Jonathan Marcus Writer

Marcus ushers you inside a semi-secret New Age group called The Work, where he serves as right-hand man to the charismatic leader. Outrageous, kinetic, and brilliant, Jan Cox based his teachings on the mystic, G.I.Gurdjieff. Habit-busting, revelatory ‚ÄúTasks‚ÄĚ couple with both meditation and crazy bacchanalian celebrations to facilitate mind expansion and ultimately, enlightenment. This is an utterly fresh take on the endeavor conscious people pursue in many forms: the age-old desire to transform their lives, challenge the status quo, and the positive effects such personal growth ultimately confers on society.
