Book: The Five Tibetans: Five Dynamic Exercises for Health, Energy, and Personal Power
Author: Christopher S. Kilham
The Tibetan Rites are five simple, yet profoundly effective, movements are easy to incorporate into a daily practice you may already have. They have been said to be the “fountain of youth”. Even though the Tibetan Rites are an ancient practice of over 2,500 years old, they were first brought to the West just last century in 1939 with Peter Kelder’s book The Eye of Revelation. Kelder had learned about the Rites from a retired British colonel who had gone to a remote monastery in the Himalayas after he kept hearing stories of llamas who became surprisingly strong, young-looking, and full of vigor after doing the so-called rites. At the monastery the colonel learned that the stories were true. They taught him about the seven “psychic vortexes” that, as we age, start to spin slower which leads to worse health. They found that the spin rate of the vortexes can be restored by practicing the 5 rites on a daily basis. Amazed by this information and feeling the need to share it with the world, Kelder published this book to serve as a great guide to making the Tibetan Rites a part of your daily practice.

Book: I Am That
Author: Nisargadatta Maharaj
This book is the ultimate as far as high-vibrational Self-realization teachings go. By cutting away all the non-essential fluff that sometimes comes with spiritual lessons, teacher Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj unmasked the mystery of what the true Self is. He does not promote any specific ideology. Furthermore, the format of the book is very interesting. It is written out in the form of dialogues he had with people who came from all over the world with the intention to strip away all the layers that had built up around their true ‘I’ and its timelessness.
Book: Sacred Sounds: Magic & Healing Through Words & Music
Author: Ted Andrews
In essentially every human culture where there was a spiritual philosophy, sound was considered the tether connecting humans with the Divine – the creative sound of the Universe is that through which everything came into existence because sound creates form. This book will teach you how to tap into the magical aspects of sound and the incredible healing nature of toning. Beyond healing, you will discover how to shift into higher states of consciousness and you will also be able to become more creative and enhance your intuition. If you feel like you have an energy block, Sacred Sounds is a “must-have” as it will teach you how, with the power of techniques such as directed esoteric toning, to dissolve blocks easily and effectively.
Book: The Holographic Universe
Author: Michael Talbot
The world has always been perceived as being a solid thing that is incredibly difficult to change. There is, however, another perspective today – an incredible amount of evidence today supports the idea that the universe is a holographic projection out of some primary Reality. This book dives into the beliefs of esteemed physicist David Bohm, a former protege of Einstein’s and quantum physicist Karl Pribram, that the universe itself is probably a massive hologram, partially manifested by the Mind. Within its pages you’ll discover how this perception shift would explain many of the mysteries of physics, including telepathy, out-of-body and near death experiences, “lucid” dreams, and the mystical experiences of collective oneness and miraculous healings. Be prepared to have your mind blown.
