HEALING ENERGY AND SPIRITUALITY RESOURCE LIST

NOTE:  THIS IS ALMOST AN IMPOSSIBLE LIST. THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY GREAT AUTHORS AND EXAMPLES OF THE IDEA OF HEALING ENERGY, SPIRITUALITY, GROWTH AND MINDFULNESS.  THESE ARE SOME THAT I'VE FOUND CAPTIVATING AND USEFUL.  FEEL FREE TO EXPLORE ON YOUR OWN.  IT IS THE JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY, NOT THE DESTINATION.

(Note:  Topics on this list will interest some and offend others.  If it resonates, check it out. If it offends, move on - or check it out.  This is how the mind and spirit opens)
