Spiritual Authors for Personal Transformation

Lynn Serafinn, author 7 Graces of Marketing & Tweep-e-licious "Author 7 Graces of Marketing, Tweep-e-licious! & More"
The list author says: "I wanted to create a list of titles I have personally read, and which had transformed my own life in some way or another. All of these titles below helped to make my own soul blossom at different parts of my life. While most are non-fiction, the fiction titles also speak directly to us to show a mirror to the Self. This list is a work in progress, and I will be adding more titles to it soon."
The Garden of The Soul: lessons from four flowers that unearth the Self
The Garden of The Soul: lessons from four flowers that unearth the Self
"'A magical adventure toward deeper understanding of the relationship between Self and the world' that has been called ‘as spiritual as Deepak Chopra and as magical as Paulo Coelho.’ An open invitation for you to explore how you are already the hero of your own life."
Finding Your Own North Star: Claiming the Life You Were Meant to Live
Finding Your Own North Star: Claiming the Life You Were Meant to Live
"I found this gem at a time in life when I was completely lost without out compass. Beck's book gave me the navigational tools to find the way home. Witty, insightful, essential."
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: a Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: a Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams
"I love this little handbook, and have given it to several people as gifts. Having studied Indian philosophy for decades, I appreciate Chopra's "man in the street" approach to explaining concepts like Karma and Dharma, and bringing them to life in practical daily practice. Written as a 7-day meditation."
Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology and the Chakra System As a Path to the Self
Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology and the Chakra System As a Path to the Self
"The absolute bible of books on chakras. Enlightening, fascinating, creatively presented, down-to-earth, logical and thought-provoking."
A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose (Oprah's Book Club, Selection 61)
A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose (Oprah's Book Club, Selection 61)
"Even though everyone probably knows this book by now, I couldn't have a current personal transformation list without this title. Add it to your library if you do not have it already."
The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
"You might find this to be an odd title for this list, but Gladwell's unique and creative observations about what he calls "social epidemics" actually gave me immense insight into the power of intention and attraction, and helped me see what was needed in my life to create the impact I wanted to create. An utterly brilliant book."
The Little Prince: Paperback Picturebook
The Little Prince: Paperback Picturebook
"Surely NOT just for children, "The Little Prince" is a tale of loyalty, courage, imagination, love and life purpose told in a charming, metaphoric and subtle way. My number one favourite book of ALL time."
Steppenwolf
Steppenwolf
"Hesse's books are a part of my youth in the 1960s. However, I returned to this book a few years ago when I myself was turning 50, only to realise that Hesse himself had written this book when he was 50, and the book itself was about his own mid-life soul journey. A fascinating Jungian voyage into the subconscious, Steppenwolf will always be one of my favourite books."
The Anatomy of Peace: Resolving the Heart of Conflict
The Anatomy of Peace: Resolving the Heart of Conflict
"The "must have" sequel (actually "prequel") to "Leadership and Self-Deception". I think I actually liked this one better than its predecessor. Basically, this book is about "getting real" to create a more peaceful world, showing us that actual peace always starts with Self."
The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence (Chopra, Deepak)
The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence (Chopra, Deepak)
"Another practical volume from Chopra. It's been a while since I read it, but I distinctly remember the impact it made on me when I did the archetype exercise. It really helped me to zero in on the primary aspects of myself, and the power of metaphor."
The Celestine Prophecy: An Adventure
The Celestine Prophecy: An Adventure
"While I found Redfield's story and writing style to be not particularly compelling, I must admit that I was fascinated with how he lays out his personal beliefs and philosophies in this book. I was particularly drawn in by his ideas on how we steal energy from one another. Very interesting. This book helped me reflect on how modern consciousness is evolving. Definitely worth the read."
Leadership and Self Deception: Getting Out of the Box
Leadership and Self Deception: Getting Out of the Box
"While number 1 in business management books, this book (and its companion "Anatomy of Peace") is actually about how we lie to ourselves and how to cultivate self-honesty for the purpose of better relationships and personal fulfilment."
Narcissus and Goldmund
Narcissus and Goldmund
"My other favourite Hesse classic. The two title characters really represent the two archetypal sides of the Self, which we commonly view as the sacred and the profane, and how true happiness can only come about when the two embrace each other. A wonderful book."
Awakened Wisdom: A Guide to Reclaiming Your Brilliance
Awakened Wisdom: A Guide to Reclaiming Your Brilliance
"A practical guide to the Eight States of an Awakened Life by former Buddhist monk, and current leadership coach, Patrick Ryan. A superbly deep, yet down-to-earth, approach to getting real and becoming self aware."
Blast Off!: The Surefire Success Plan to Launch Your Dreams into Reality
Blast Off!: The Surefire Success Plan to Launch Your Dreams into Reality
"A genuinely helpful book that shows you how to achieve your goals in life. Fun, lighthearted, accessible and practical."
Check Mates: A Collection of Fiction, Poetry and Artwork About Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, by People with OCD
Check Mates: A Collection of Fiction, Poetry and Artwork About Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, by People with OCD
"While you might not have thought this to be a "spiritual" book, it is. It digs deeply into the heart and soul of OCD, allowing us to feel connection and compassion in a way not experienced in any other book on anxiety I have read. Truly unique."
Sybil
Sybil
"You might find this (sometimes disturbing) book to be a strange title to be on this list. What this book opened up to me was greater insight into the mind-body-spirit connection, and how our emotions can manifest both physical and mental illness."
Dark Night of the Soul
Dark Night of the Soul
"Not just a book for Catholics (or even Christians), this intense, self-reflective volume takes the reader through the spiritual experience of the mystic, through the vehicle of powerful symbolism that transcends religious dogma."
The Different Drum: Community Making and Peace
The Different Drum: Community Making and Peace
"What an awesome classic this book is. Peck's model for spiritual and community evolution is one that I observe every day of my life. Inspiring, innovative, precious! Read this book, and you will suddenly understand why there is war in the world, and what it takes to bring about peace. Fantastic."
Kids Who See Ghosts: How to Guide Them Through Fear
Kids Who See Ghosts: How to Guide Them Through Fear
"An interesting and sensitive journey into the world of intuition and extraordinary perception, of great use to parents and teachers."
Flight to Arras
Flight to Arras
"St Exupery wrote this wonderful book as a reflection of his flight on a reconnaissance mission over France during WW2. That may sound dry, but it is one of the finest statements on the inhumanity of war I have ever read. Understated, poetic, powerful, beautiful. It also helps you understand the heart of the man who wrote the classic book “The Little Prince.”"
