As I mentioned in my bio, I was the first in my class to learn to read. Since the age of 6 I’ve been in the habit of reading at least two hours a day (every day!) and so, over time, you can imagine what a quantity of material I’ve digested. Anyone interested in psychology or philosophy or literature etc. can contact me for a more complete list of recommendations, but here I would like to only mention two books that I believe have the power to truly deepen folks’ understanding of themselves and their place in the world. Taken together they are excellent tools for the alleviation of suffering.
1. The Interpretation Of Dreams by Dr. Sigmund Freud
2. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
