"Owning your glow is the art of being a fully-expressed woman.  Owning your glow is a catalyst, accelerating positive change from the inside out. Owning your glow is about embodying love and standing in your purpose."

Own Your Glow: A Soulful Guide to Luminous Living by Latham Thomas

I am so thrilled that my friend and mentor Latham Thomas has written another book for us; she is so deeply knowledgeable, authentic, connected to source energy + committed to women realizing their full potential through purposeful self-care.

I had the pleasure of interviewing her about Own Your Glow for The Next Layer Podcast™, we talked about why the "slay"culture might be inhibiting our progress, the best time to tap into our creative power, how we fall short of our greatness and so much more. Look out for that unforgettable episode tomorrow.

“We have to know ourselves to know where we end and another person begins, and we have to develop the skills to navigate the space between us. Or else we will seek wholeness through false means that honor neither us nor those we love.” 

Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection by Sharon Salzberg

In this book we get to explore love - with truth, thoughtfulness + compassion - through the lens of mindfulness; it's such an important perspective for understanding the essential role of self-love in cultivating relationship with our self + others. Each page offers answers to questions you didn't know you had in your heart.

“When you cease to fear your solitude, a new creativity awakens in you. Your forgotten or neglected wealth begins to reveal itself. You come home to yourself and learn to rest within."

Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom by John O'Donohue

This is not a new book but the words still feel like a warm blanket of peace + beauty right now...a salve for the weary heart in these challenging times. John's words bring us back to the warmth, loving nature + strength of our humanity; he invites us to look closely at our inner landscape + carefully tend to the garden of the soul.
