Here is a list of my top reads for a “Sophia Education,” a.k.a the study of Feminine Wholeness. These books have opened my eyes and taught me precious things about Sex, God, Womanhood, Mind, Brain, Body, Relationships, and Yoga. Keep in mind that not every book is for everyone, and I do not necessarily support every little idea expressed in each book. Trust your gut to decide what read right for you at this particular point in your journey.
Treat these books as resources, not as ultimate Truth...that is for you and God to decipher together! It’s a journey for each of us and I am honored to share it with you.
Gratitude for the brave women and great thinkers who share their stories with us, and the wisdom their unique perspective and personal vision brings.
p.s. I will continue to add to the list!
