When Nina Mistry’s life hits rock bottom, she decides to change her stars by falling in love…with herself. 30 Things I Love About Myself is a hilarious, heartfelt story from outrageously funny novelist Radhika Sanghani.

A remarkable exploration of the therapeutic relationship, in The Zen of Therapy, Dr. Mark Epstein reflects on one year’s worth of therapy sessions with his patients to observe how his training in Western psychotherapy and his equally long investigation into Buddhism, in tandem, led to greater awareness—for his patients, and for himself.

Author Agapi Stassinopoulos approaches prayer an an ongoing conversation with something larger than oneself. And similar to a mindfulness practice, believes that a daily prayer practice has the power to change lives. Speaking with Spirit is a collection of 52 prayers and stories to inspire, unlock inner strength, and navigate daily life with spirit, from the author of Wake Up to the Joy of You.
