The following are resources that you can use to help you along your journey of health and healing.  Each category is related to an aspect of integrative health and includes beloved authors of books that have helped me along the way.

I have included a link for purchase with Amazon.  I will offer the suggestion of shopping locally at your nearest independent bookstore.  Two suggestions in the Boston area are  Porter Square Books and Trident Booksellers & Cafe.  Both offer both online and in store purchase.
