As a lover of knowledge in all forms (especially reading), I’ve been slowly devouring any thoughtful, captivating and fascinating books that have cropped up. Some of which have soothed, enthused and left a powerful lasting impression, that will stay for the rest of my life. There are so many titles to choose from and each individual has a unique area of interest. This makes it difficult to craft a list of 5 books for everyone. However, here’s my attempt, if anyone were to pick up one of these, it could cause a shift in perspective and hopefully, in a positive way. These are some of the books that have influenced my experience greatly and resonate strongly with my perception of reality.
Instead of writing a description for each book, there will be an excerpt from each book. This way if you are excited by the excerpt you may just get a copy and read on. Here are 5 Influential books that challenge your way of thinking (in no particular order) :
Open To Desire by Mark Epstein
Vagabonding by Rolf Potts
Consolations Of Philosophy by Alain De Botton
Healing Our Deepest Wounds by Stanislav Grof
LSD: My Problem Child by Albert Hoffman
I hope you enjoy! Let us know if you have any more books that you highly recommend to read and also if you have read any of the books on the list your thoughts on them.
