ORANGE SOCKS: How a yuppie goes yogi
by Valerie Simonson
An autobiography about a business woman who had it all, yet wasn’t happy and had to know The Answer. She discovered meditation is for fairly normal people. It can be used in everyday life even business. The book is about how to become king over your mind and claim your right to self-sovereignty.

THE SEAT OF THE SOUL
by Gary Zukav
The author explains that we are evolving from a species that pursues power based upon the perceptions of the five senses – external power – into a species that pursues authentic power – power that is based upon the perceptions and values of the spirit. He shows how the pursuit of external power has produced our survival-of-the-fittest understanding of evolution, generated conflict between lovers, communities, and superpowers, and brought us to the edge of destruction.
DON’T GET MAD GET WISE: Why No One Ever Makes You Angry… Ever!
The author’s message is that we all have anger in our hearts, and it corrodes relationships everywhere, from the individual to the international. But anger is never healthy or justified. At its root, anger is a spiritual rather than an emotional issue. We can’t be angry, and peaceful and loving, at the same time. This book is about learning what forgiveness really means, how to be peaceful, and to live without anger. It’s about healing the wounds of our anger-driven habits and learning who we really are.
THE ART OF HAPPINESS
Dalai Lama & Howard Cutler
The Art of Happiness is written by Howard Cutler and the Dalai Lama, the spiritiual and temporal leader of the Tibetan people. In The Art of Happniess, Cutler blends psychology with the Dalai Lama’s Buddhist meditations, stories and guidance on how to defeat depression, anxiety, anger, and jealousy through meditation. He discusses relationships, health, family, work, and spirituality and how to find inner peace while facing these struggles. Like any art, the art of happiness requires study and practice and the talent for it, the Dalai Lama assures us, is in our nature.
