Okay people, if you are looking for some last minute Christmas gifts, and especially if you are looking for a great read…here is a fantastic list of books from Riane Eisler, PhD, the co-founder of
Dr. Eisler’s books paint a beautiful portrait of peace for our world today. Her organization, CPS, exists to build a culture of gender and racial equity, economic justice, and a sustainable environment.
The Real Wealth of Nations — hailed by Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu as “a template for the better world we have been so urgently seeking.”
The Power of Partnership — hailed by Christiane Northrup, M.D., as ” a brilliantly accessible plan for transforming ourselves and our world.”
The Chalice and The Blade — hailed by Ashley Montagu as “the most important book since Darwin’s Origin of Species” and by Isabel Allende as “one of those magnificent key books that can transform us.”
Dr. Eisler also recommends books by her partner, the social psychologist David Loye:
3,000 Years of Love: The Life of Riane Eisler and David Loye — the story of our 30+ years of adventures together.
Darwin’s Second Revolution — the first of David Loye’s trilogy, Darwin and the Battle for Human Survival, with nine pages of endorsements by leading scientists.
For the children in your life, I recommend:
The Warmest Place by Licia Rando — beautifully written and illustrated, conveying the most important message of all: what matters most is love.
For pre-teen girls, a subscription to New Moon magazine — I have been giving it for years, and the girls (and parents) love it.
For parents, you can download — for free — our acclaimed Caring and Connected Parenting Guide (also by Licia Rando) — endorsed by Dr. Brazelton, Dr. Siegel, as well as two Nobel peace laureates.
For teachers, here are some more ideas:
The award-winning Tomorrow’s Children: A Blueprint for Partnership Education for the 21st Century (the book or DVD).
