Books I love and recommend…

Men & Masculine-Feminine

No More Mister Nice Guy - Robert Glover

Attachment Theory

Anxiously Attached - Jessica Baum

Great, little book about staying on the path to mastery and learning to “love the plateaus”, as you will spend most of your life there…breakthroughs are temporary and fade, but working day-to-day at the new level of living is the real work and has the most benefits.
