Come, Follow Me: The Commandments of Jesus/Invitation to Discipleship by Anthony J. Gittins
The author attempts to stimulate reflection and action. Each chapter focuses on a specific command of Jesus and, in everyday language, sheds light on the meaning of the text and challenges our complacency. There are questions at the end of each chapter to further jar ones comfort zone.

The Conscious Universe by Dean Radin
HarperOne (an Imprint of HarperCollins Publishers): 1997 - This rigorously reasoned manifesto by an eminent parapsychologist provides astonishing answers to universal questions by unveiling persuasive empirical evidence for the existence of psychic phenomena. - New York Times Magazine

The Emotion Code by Bradley Nelson
This is an excellent introduction to the emerging fields of Energy Psychology and Bioenergetic Medicine. It is an informative self-help book re: removal of trapped emotions, heart walls and much more.

Entangled MINDS by Dean Radin
This illuminating book sets the stage for a rational, scientific understanding of psychic experience. Radin shows how we know that psychic phenomena such as telepathy, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis are real, based on scientific evidence from thousands of controlled lab tests.

The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe by Lynne McTaggart
McTaggart reveals a radical new paradigm--that the human mind and body are not separate from their environment but a pocket of pulsating power constantly interacting with this vast energy sea, and that consciousness may be central in shaping our world.
"One of the most powerful and enlightening books I have ever read. A magnificent job of presenting the hard evidence for what spiritual masters have been telling us for centuries." Wayne W. Dyer

The Legend of the Light-Bearers by Dr. Joe Rubino
A process of personal and global transformation is outlined through this powerful fable.

The Magic Lantern by Dr. Joe Rubino
A tale of personal and spiritual development that teaches the keys to success. The fable examines what it means for people to make life work harmoniously and to become maximally effective with others.

The Paradox of Power: From Control to Compassion by Michael Crosby
By drawing from real-life examples as well as theory, the author shows us how the creative energy of power can heal and construct healthy relationships, marriages, families, organizations, churches, nations, etc.

A Presence That Disturbs: A Call to Radical Discipleship by Anthony J. Gittins
This powerful, moving, and "disturbing" book looks at the contemporary issues that block the attainment of a revitalized Church-a Church united rather than fragmented, a Church tuned to justice for all rather than to provincial myopia.

The Seven Blessings by Dr. Joe Rubino
A spell-binding fable with so many parallels to our modern-day world. It is a book for leaders and followers.

Zero Limits by Joe Vitale
This “how to let go and forgive” Ho-oponopono ritual is working minor and major miracles for those who use it.
