]If you’ve ever struggled to quiet your inner voice or wanted to free yourself from your own self-defeating thoughts- this book is a great place to start. I one heard someone refer to it as “psychological bootcamp,” and I think that’s a pretty good description of The Untethered Soul. This ambitious little book aims to teach us that our thoughts and feelings don’t define us. That we are far more than our perceptions of the world around us and that once we are able to cultivate this awareness, we will no longer find ourselves ruled by our thoughts and emotions. A little dense in some places, a little over-simplified in others– but overall a great message that really resonated with me. This is definitely a book grounded in spiritual principles, so if that would be a turnoff to you, feel free to skip this one.

From Goodreads: What would it be like to free yourself from limitations and soar beyond your boundaries? What can you do each day to discover inner peace and serenity? The Untethered Soul offers simple yet profound answers to these questions.

Whether this is your first exploration of inner space, or you’ve devoted your life to the inward journey, this book will transform your relationship with yourself and the world around you. You’ll discover what you can do to put an end to the habitual thoughts and emotions that limit your consciousness. By tapping into traditions of meditation and mindfulness, author and spiritual teacher Michael A. Singer shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and self-realization. Check it out on Goodreads!
