Each year the Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa selects 12 books to enhance and inspire the spiritual paths of our congregants, providing them with the means to delve deeper into each month’s focus. The book of the month program is very popular because there is a sense of belonging and cohesion that arises when a spiritual community studies and practices together. There is a common language that is created and experienced when folks are reading the same books at the same time. And there is an increased opportunity for dialogue—exchanging ideas and expanding awareness while walking together on common ground.
In the month of January, we read Wisdom Walk: Nine Practices for Creating Peace and Balance from the World’s Spiritual Traditions by Sage Bennet. April’s book was Living Buddha, Living Christ by Thich Nhat Hanh. And in October we will read The Wisdom of Native Americans by Kent Nerburn. These are just a few of the books from the 2015 reading list. The reading list contains books that are steeped in depth, knowledge, and inspiration.
