Book club time! We want to share some of our favorite reads with you from our go-to experts and brilliant podcast guests.. These books inspire us, teach us, open our minds, and shift our perspectives. We hope you’ll love them as much as we do!

K+L’s Favorites:

Law of One by Ra a Humble Messenger

I’ve read it multiple times and it resonated with me so deeply that I knew I’d never be the same. (I even did a full podcast episode on it. Check it out here.) It’s a beautiful metaphysical text that has helped me understand history, consciousness, quantum physics, healing, and so much more. I have to warn people though, it can be really weird to read because the vocabulary is so advanced (it’s spoken from a higher dimensional consciousness), but it’s worth it!

Women Food and God by Geneen Roth

When I wanted to heal my relationship with my body and food, this book helped me heal in a big way. The book starts with this concept that resonates so much with me: “The way you eat is inseparable from your core beliefs about being alive. Your relationship with food mirrors your feelings about everything and it takes you to your spirit and soul.” 

Stop Missing the Point by Peta Kelly

Peta is one of our dear friends, and we always come back to her wisdom in this book. Peta reminds us that conscious people can enjoy life too — that we can lighten up and enjoy the ride! She’s inspiring us to live, lead, earn, and give more consciously.

Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer

Part memoir, part investigative report about the morality of food, this one was so impactful for us. Jonathan Safran Foer writes about every fish we eat, every chicken we fry, and every burger we grill. Jonathan asks what it means to eat animals in an industrialized world — and we are so glad he asks.

Dynamic Thought by Henry Thomas Hamblin

It’s a powerful 12-week course in applying The Law of Attraction to transform your life. Henry Thomas Hamblin helps us get in touch with our human system and teaches us how to come into harmony with the Universal Laws that rule our world. This one’s a game changer!

Meet Your Soul by Elisa Romeo

Elisa Romeo created a super powerful guide for us to connect with our most sacred self. She helped us create and cultivate a strong spiritual practice, access the voice of our soul, and discover our divine purpose. 

Becoming Supernatural by Dr. Joe Dispenza

Joe Dispenza is a go-to resource for us — I do his meditations every day. Becoming Supernatural brings together scientific information and ancient wisdom to show everyone how to experience a more mystical life. We are powerful and supernatural, and we can realize that through meditation, creativity, and changing our energy. This one is an A30 team favorite, too!

The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield

James Redfield breaks his book down into several insights with each one helping us move toward a completely spiritual culture on Earth. It’s a beautiful story of adventure and discovery while also helping us direct our energy for our future.

Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian Weiss

This is a super provocative and timeless true story. Psychologist and author Brian Weiss tells the story of one of his patients who began recalling past-life traumas that seemed to hold the key to her recurring nightmares and anxiety attacks, including channeling revelations about Dr. Weiss’ family and his dead son. It’s hard to put this one down once you’ve started.

The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein

I mean…you know how much we love Gabby! This book is full of her stories and universal lessons to help us find happiness, security, and clear direction. She helps remind us to stop chasing life and truly live. The universe really does have our back if we let it!

To Shake the Sleeping Self by Jedidiah Jenkins

Jedidah quit his dream job and spent sixteen months cycling from Oregon to Patagonia on the eve of turning thirty. Terrified of being funneled into a life he didn’t choose, he questioned what makes a life worth living and reflects on all of this in his honest and reflective memoir. 

Boss Bitch by Nicole Lapin

Nicole gives us a fun and actionable guide to empower us all to be the boss of our lives and our careers. 

The Gut Repair Cookbook by Dr. Josh Axe

Dr. Axe starts at the place where health begins: the gut. With his cookbook, we learned about which foods to remove from our diet and which foods to double down on. He also walks us through simple yet satisfying recipes for each meal.

Careergasm: Find Your Way to Feel-Good Work by Sarah Vermunt

Sarah gives us a rousing, no-BS book of advice for aspiring career changers. She helps us step out of our career rut into action and fall in love with our job!

#Girlboss by Sophie Amoruso
