Rev Arda's Book Recommendations

Friends, my spiritual journey began in childhood at the age of 7 and led me through a lifetime of seeking what many people would call God. After decades of exploration and experiential study, what I ultimately ended up finding was myself. Throughout the entire time, I was (and still am) a voracious reader. While this isn't a complete list, many of these books have played an integral part in my personal, spiritual, and even professional development. They have informed my work at different stages of my life as an executive, a spiritual leader and a human rights activist in NYC. Today, as a devout Humanist, I still draw inspiration from many of the figures and traditions I've read about and practiced over the years. Wherever you are on your personal journey, whatever your belief system–or lack of–I have no doubt you'll find something here to support, assist and inspire you on your way. Enjoy.
