Our Journey


Before going any further, you should get a few certain books. You probably already read them, but they are so important you should keep them around as resource material. And if you're anything like me, you have worn them out by reading them numerous times. It's time for new copies.

By Jack Kerouac: Book of Haikus, Dharma Bums, Good Blonde and Others.
By Rumi: The Essential Rumi, The Book of Love, The Big Red Book. (All translated by Coleman Barks).
By Thich Nhat Hanh: Be Free Where You Are, The Miracle of Mindfulness, Peace is Every Step, The World We Have, True Love.
By Anthony de Mello: Awareness, The Way to Love.
By Others: Pleasures of the Damned (Charles Bukowski).
