Sacred Arts Academy Reading List

By request – a list of books to read/listen to as part of your journey with the sacred arts.

For the books that I recommend as an audio book, there is a 馃攰 icon next to them.  These books are narrated by the author, and I find you get deeper teaching sometimes by listening.  Most are available through the public library as both print and audio books, but not all. The books are listed in the order I recommend reading them.

This list will be updated from time to time.
