Books, Music and Media
There is no way I could even begin to list a fraction of the inspirational & creative sources that have helped me and influenced me on my path. Here are just a very few to get you started.
Wider View column - This is an article I wrote several years back, about some books I love. (It’s also under my Articles link). The titles I mentioned here are timeless, and I would still recommend them all!
Goddess to Goddess Radio Hour book links - This web site has a lot of good recommendations with which I agree (there are many I have not read, but am familiar with other works by most of the authors).
Alternate Beauty - by Andrea Rains Waggener. WOW. What a fun and profound novel! Thank you to my beautiful and brilliant niece, Tami Agasi, for introducing me to this book. Everyone in the Western world should read it to see how influenced they are by cultural norms.
Kirtana - Kirtana’s music and lyrics are gorgeous and intensely awakening; she goes right to the core. She is the only musician I know of who has sang at events with such spiritual teachers as GangaJi, Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, and Brandon Bays, among others.
Putumayo - I am so impressed by this fantastic line of CD’s. One can never own enough Putumayo CDs, in my humble opinion. I don’t know how they do it, but they cull the best of every genre of music worldwide.
Kaila - This man has a soulful, uplifting energy in his voice. He is vastly under-known, as far as I am concerned. His music reminds many of the wonderful Jack Johnson, with a bit of Hawaiian flavor.
New Dimensions Foundation - This is the granddaddy of New Consciousness broadcasting. Justine and Michael Toms have been doing excellent radio interviews with everyone from the Dalai Lama to the “spiritual comedian” Swami Beyondananda for over 30 years.
KZSC-FM Radio - This station, at 88.1 in Santa Cruz County, is available by internet non-locally as well. Broadcasting from the University of California at Santa Cruz, it plays an excellent eclectic mix. (I am pretty sure it’s on the iTunes radio feed, also).
