Book Circle for Soul Searchers 
with Diane Sears

Is the stack of books in your study or on your bedside table calling to you?  And a list of other books too, for when you finish that stack?  The wisdom within those books is waiting for you, ready to enlighten you about such soul-searching questions as: Why am I here?  How can I attract all that I desire?  Who was I before I was born?  How can I be more creative?  Where do we go when we die?  What is a purposeful life?

If you love books and are searching for answers to these types of questions, you've found your perfect circle!  We'll read one book each month, then gather to discuss our insights and share our experiences related to the exercises or challenges put forth in the books.    

In fact, here is a sampling of other books we may discuss in future circles.  And we welcome suggestions by circle participants of other titles to include along the way.  

  • Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Robert M. Pirsig
  • Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
  • The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho
  • Care of the Soul, Thomas Moore
  • E Squared, Pam Grout
  • Many Lives, Many Masters, Brian Weiss
  • Mind Over Medicine, Lissa Rankin
  • One Zentangle a Day, Beckah Krahula
  • Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Richard Bach
  • A Book that Takes Its Time, Irene Smit
Answer your soul’s calling to receive the inspiration and wisdom within these books, and enjoy insightful and lively discussions with soulful community.

The Wise Child: A Spiritual Guide to Nurturing Your Child's Intuition, Sonia Choquette 

"Connecting to our intuition unites us with both our soul and the soul of the Universe, Divine Spirit. It takes away our fearful sense of isolation and inadequacy. It replaces fear with a sense of spiritual direction and safety. The world becomes friendly, nonadversarial, and welcoming. Life becomes joyful, amusing, generous, and abundant. This is the divine plan. The intuitive life is one of confidence, inner peace, and creative expression. What better gift to ourselves and our children?" 

How can I help my children to thrive and prosper? How can I ensure that they will not become unhappy and frustrated as I have been? These are the questions that inspired Sonia Choquette to write this profound and accessible book explaining - through spiritual principles, modern-day parables, and practical exercises - how even busy parents can help children connect to their own source of divine guidance.

Talking with the Animals, Patty Summers  

Is it really possible to talk with animals? Or at least to realize that they are talking to us all the time? Patty Summers listens and understands.  An animal communicator, Summers can converse directly with a variety of animal species, from cats and dogs to rabbits, horses, and iguanas. In this beautiful and moving book, the animals share their wisdom, their perspective on life, and even how they feel about human beings. The animals can teach us many things, and Summers uses her abilities to help humans listen and to aid humans and animals in understanding one another better.  She also describes the ways that animals comprehend the world, and explains that they always understand the intent of human communications, if not the words. And she teaches that they share our wants and needs, as they desire the same things that humans do: love, compassion, kindness, and respect; and they do not want to be thought of as pets or as beings to be exploited.  Summers shares numerous encounters with animals, and each story has a valuable lesson - each is a gift of spirit from the animals. We have so much to learn from our animal companions, domestic and otherwise. Talking with the Animals provides a rare glimpse inside the minds of the creatures with whom we share our planet.
