Eckhart Tolle has helped thousands to self-transform and find their inner peace over the past years. His well written style is easy to understand and the more than honest preface lets you know from Page 1 what you're getting yourself into.

Presenting his own pain and initial fears Tolle immediately manages to get a hook on the reader, furthering the interest and setting you up to embrace the journey of Mindfulness and take on your "ego" yourself.

When we acknowledge and accept the facts and start working with our thoughts rather than reacting to it, we create the much needed space for transformation to happen.

Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life by John Kabat-Zinn

Wherever You Go, There You Are introduces you step-by-step to more and more meditation practices that are easy to grasp and can be immediately implemented into your own life routine.

While Mindfulness may be an ancient Buddhist practice, it certainly isn't just for very spiritual people or long time Buddhism practitioners.

This book provides the insight needed to become more aware of yourself and the things happening around you.

The mostly short chapters will teach you the techniques of taking a step back from the world and then engaging with it on a more honest and self-reflected basis so you can be more comfortable with yourself when acting.

Much of it what is written in Wherever You Go, There You Are comes across like listening to an experienced tutor that leaves the technical details for the (boring) reading assignments.

An excellent introduction to the World of Mindfulness, Meditation and Self-Transformation!

The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself by Michael A. Singer

The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself is a great book to get a handle on yourself, your emotions and start your journey of awareness and self-exploration.

Michael Singer perfectly describes examples why we are lost in thought, driven by ego and imprisoned in a dream-like state controlled by a non-stop rambling inner monologue.

All day, every day - like a clockwork - this voice is piloting our lives and we lie at its mercy.

Singers message is clear: The way for the soul to become untethered is for us to realize that this process is happening and paying attention, realizing that we aren't defined by our thoughts - we aren't our thoughts - we are simply witnessing its effects on us.

When we start approaching the walls of our thoughts, we can finally break out our soul of this prison created by our current model of the world and expectations of people.
