What I’m reading now
Updated: Mar 29
Everyday I read A Course in Miracles. If you have a favorite book or suggestion please post it in this blog.
Welcome, what's on your mind. Who's your fav. I love poetry by Langston Hughes and Paul Lawrence Dunbar. When I was growing up I read Maya Angelou , Richard Wright, and out of sight of my mom, Donald Goines. During my college years, I focused on African American literature. African American history and literate was my sole purpose. I even did my thesis on the Black Arts Movement, studying the Last Poets. Now I read authors like Marianne Williamson, Wayne Dyer, James Redfield, Willard Johnson, etc...
One of my favorite authors on teaching children meditation is by David Fontana and Ingrid Slack. I suggest you read their book "Teaching Meditation to Children" especially if you are a teacher and want suggestions on mindfulness and concentration strategies. You'll also receive a thorough understanding of meditation and how its usage benefits children. You might be asking how my book differs, well I added another technique, Reiki. Combining the two improves one's connection to one's true Self. Using both modalities can help improve concentration, offtask behavior, mindfulness, memory and stress.
“A healer's power stems not from any special ability, but from maintaining the courage and awareness to embody and express the universal healing power that every human being naturally possesses.”
―Eric Micha'el Leventhal
