Reading Challenge Update

We are almost 3/4 way through 2017, and I can hardly believe it! What better time to check in on our 2017 Reading Challenge?

So far I’ve finished these books from the challenge:
The Alchemist
East of Eden
1Q84
Rich People Behaving Badly
Field Notes from a Catastrophe
Letters of Note
Hemingway in Love
Travels with Charley
The Essential Neruda: Selected Poems (Bilingual Edition)
Between the World and Me
Rich People Behaving Badly

Plus these from Book of the Month Club:
The Association of Small Bombs
The Nest
Modern Lovers
One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter

I love having Book of the Month Club as a way to discover new literature that I might not otherwise find on my own! The best part is that they don’t ship my box or charge me unless I pick a book, so it’s not a big deal if I forget about it, as I tend to do with subscription services. Anyone else have that issue? I am seriously the worst at forgetting so skip a month. Fortunately I only subscribe to books, wine and more wine, and I’m never mad about forgetting to skip a month of wine.

Update us on your challenge progress in the comments, or share a book we should add to our list!

Happy Reading!

Timshel Reads: White Hot Truth

I feel incredibly fortunate to be part of the Launch Team for Danielle LaPorte’s newest book, White Hot Truth: Clarity for Keeping It Real on Your Spiritual Path from One Seeker to Another. I’ve been a devotee of Danielle’s work聽ever since I discovered The Desire Map: A Guide to Creating Goals with Soul, so I was thrilled to be chosen for this group.

White Hot Truth is the perfect book for anyone who has felt exhausted, joyful,confused, manipulated, inspired and defeated on their spiritual path. Danielle gets raw and real about her own experiences and what she has learned, freeing the reader to examine their own journey without judgement.

The biggest thing I took away from this book, and from the discussions surrounding it, is that I am not alone in my occasional despair over my own spirituality. I’m not the only one who sometimes wonders if it’s all a waste of time. I’m not the only one who聽feels like a total hypocrite five times before breakfast. I’m not the only one who has feared the weight of family disappointment when choosing my own path. I’m not the only one…

I’m learning, slowly, to trust myself more sincerely. Danielle is the master of encouragement in this area, and I know that I will read this book many times over as I continue to grow.

Is there a specific book that has been heavily impactful on you? Have you been in contact with聽Danielle’s work in the past? I would love to hear your experiences!

Love and light,
KD
