My holy trinity:
Pema Chödrön An American Buddhist nun, Pema has touched millions of lives through her easy to understand books and talks. I’m one of them. Her book “When Things Fall Apart” literally turned my world upside down. Regardless of your religious affiliation, I highly recommend you check her out.
Tara Brach Tara is a both a clinical psychologist and a teacher of Buddhist meditation. Her work is a wonderful blend of traditional psychology and eastern spiritual traditions. Her talks (freely available on her website) are engaging, enlightening and often funny to boot! I highly recommend checking her out as well.
Brené Brown You probably know Brené from one of the two TED talks she gave that later went viral. She has a PhD in Social Work and has spent a lot of time researching and talking about the topics of shame, vulnerability, courage and worthiness. It doesn’t exactly sound captivating, but it is! If you haven’t seen her TED talks, do it now. If you like them, (who doesn’t?) move on to her books. They’re excellent as well.
I’ll be adding to this list as I go along, as many, many people have inspired me throughout my journey, and later I’ll be putting up another page highlighting some of my favorite words of wisdom from them. Enjoy and feel free to add your own sources of inspiration! I’m always on the lookout for new material 😉
