As an aspiring wellness-minded co-journeyer, I am deeply drawn to the space of healing and self-transcendence. If one thing I learned from living in the relentlessly Corona epoch is to follow my instinctual sense of self-renewal – By turning my stare to the internal inventory to create evermore fulfillment from within. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by the sympathetic state that is being internalized in my somatic experiences, I chose to be brutally honest with myself by walking on an alternative path over the past year – Into a wholistic horizon that would invite more self-knowledge, inner peace, and coherence (of my true essence) in Life that IT IS.

In between the pause, I am compelled to share the first 45 mindful book-series resources that I’ve been foraging over time, and perhaps to finally let them land into a place where one may find appealing to their well-being & wholeness, too.
