book cover1.  Transpersonal Development by Roberto Assagioli.  

Assagioli's descriptions and case studies provide an accurate summary of the entire awakening process, including the possible reactions of those who do not understand what is happening to the individual.  I highly recommend this book for anyone who is having experiences that fall outside of the cultural norm and are seeking further understanding of what they could mean.


Carl Jung AutoBio2. Memories, Dreams, Reflections by Carl Jung and Aniela Jaffe.  

This is Carl Jung's autobiography.  Reading Jung is an excellent way to facilitate self-acceptance regarding the "inner life".  In many ways I consider Jung to be my original teacher in coming to understand and work with the various energies that are in communion with us.
