The 7 Spirituality Books That I Learned From The Most

There are so many spirituality books and authors our there. Some teachers may resonate with you and some may not. Here’s a short list of teachers that I resonated with and learned from the most during my journey. There is no particular order to this list, one is not better than the other, because I learned something different from each one.

1. Deepak Chopra & “The Seven Spiritual Laws Of Success”

I have listened to this gem many times (I have the audio book) and I keep learning something new after every listen. Deepak Chopra is a very popular and active teacher in the medias.

2. Sadhguru & “Midnights with the Mystic: A Little Guide to Freedom and Bliss.”

Sadhguru was one of the first teachers that I fell upon. I really enjoyed the fresh that he brings to his teachings.

3. Stephen Davis & “Butterflies Are Free To Fly. A New and Radical Approach to Spiritual Evolution.”

Stephen Davis is not an active teacher like most of the others on this page but he has created a series of resources, including videos, an eBook and even the audio version of the eBook all available for free. His perspective is somewhat controversial as the subtitle suggest a radical idea but I’m sure everyone will learn something new, I sure did.

4. Joseph Campbell & “The Power Of Myth”

Joseph Campbell is a popular teacher because his style is very amenable to today’s modern culture. His most popular idea is that of the Hero’s Journey as described in the book “The Hero With a Thousand Faces“. In fact, many modern movies follow the story structure of the Hero’s Journey including Star Wars, Harry Potter, etc.

Here’s a great YouTube video explaining The Hero’s Journey

5. Eckhart Tolle & “A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose”

A New Earth is a very popular book among the newest generation of spiritual seekers. If you follow Oprah’s book club, then this was selection 61.

6. Mateo Tabatabai & “The Mind-Made Prison: Radical Self Help and Personal Transformation ”

This is a very practical book to start the process of awakening. Highly recommend it.

7. Marcus Aurelius & “Meditations”

Marcus Aurelius was the emperor of Rome (A.D. 161-180) and although Meditations was written about 2000 years, the philosophy of Stoicism is still pertinent even in today’s modern society.

If you are new to the Stoich philosophy then this book is a good one to begin with.


Bonus: Jed McKenna & “Spiritual Enlightenment: The Damnedest Thing (The Enlightenment Trilogy Book 1)”

Another great author and book that had an impact on my journey of spirituality. I consider this one a bit more hardcore… 🙂

  1. Oneness by Rasha, Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav, Return to the Sacred by Jonathan H. Ellerby, The Force by Stuart Wilde, Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life by Dr. Wayne Dyer, Chasing Rumi by Roger Housden, Lessons From The Light by Kenneth Ring

  2. Little Sugar Addicts – Kathleen DesMaisons

    The practicality of this book brought validation of all the concepts into high definition. The great spirituality teachings are not designed to bring us to a new and better life someday, but by honoring a natural order we can have a better life right now. That we don’t has a lot to do with the creatures inside of us protecting their home and trying harder than us to live out their destiny because they – have no ego. This book written in 2004 predates much of the scientific literature under the title epigenetics but post dates the notions that man can not live on bread alone or that an apple a day will keep the doctor away(psy-phd).

  3. I Am That – talks with Nisargadatta Maharaj

    A Course In Miracles. Often mentioned by Eckhart Tolle and a really in detail account of how the ego fools us….
