The Surrender Experiment:

My Journey into Life’s Perfection

By Michael A. Singer

[/vc_row_inner]
The diversity of our philosophies, beliefs, concepts, and views about the soul often leads to confusion. To reconcile the noise, Michael Singer writes about how to put aside conflicting beliefs, let go of worries, and transform misdirected desires. Singer combines accounts of his own life journey to enlightenment—from his years as a hippie-loner to his success as a computer program engineer to his work in spiritual and humanitarian efforts—a road map to live in a state of happiness.

Je ziet mij nooit meer terug

Als talkshowhost en interviewer was Sonja Barend voor mij en vele anderen een voorbeeld en inspiratie. In dit bijzondere levensverhaal gaat ze op zoek naar antwoorden over haar jeugd, meer over haar vader die ze alleen kent van een foto, het lot van haar ouders in oorlogstijd en de invloed daarvan op haar verdere levensloop. Al lezende wordt al gauw inzichtelijk wat Sonja gedurende haar hele loopbaan heeft bewogen en wat de richting van haar televisiewerk heeft bepaald. Het boek is bijzonder eerlijk geschreven.
