If I hadn't encountered these and all that unfolded, I would never have been able to express my joy and create, felt or paint, share my work or flourish and thrive!
**In the process of adding... these are the first ones...**
Over the last few years I've read so many books and articles that have helped me immeasurably, in opening up to awareness and understanding of my own experience on the topics of Narcissism and being Highly Sensitive and an Empath. These have in turn led me to mutually supportive communities and individuals who have been inspirational in the most beautiful ways, and also, fundamentally, to an experiential understanding 'beyond' the book reading. xx
I have an innate love and joy of libraries and lists :) and so wanted to start to collect the resources all together here, partly for my own handy reference but mainly for any others who come across them and find them of interest and perhaps very helpful... They're not organised in the Dewey Decimal classified system ! but in an organic way for me, although they do all intermingle x
If you come across this page and would like to suggest any other books/resources on these topics that you've found helpful, or would like to make any related comments, please do, in the comments below, or email me :)
