Naked Revival's Fall Reading Guide

Cozy up with our founder's favourite fall reads: 

The Big Leap by Gay Hendrix

An oldie but a goodie, this classic is an annual re-read for Amber-Lee. The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks is a self-help book that teaches how to overcome the self-imposed limits on happiness, success, and love. The book argues that we have an unconscious maximum level of happiness that we allow ourselves to feel and that we sabotage ourselves when we exceed it. The book shows how to identify and break through these upper-limit problems and how to expand our comfort zone to achieve our full potential.

Intimate Communion by David Dieda

These days, women rarely come across men who can meet them fully in intimacy, suggests maverick teacher and author David Deida. Why? Because women have culturally evolved beyond men. What does sexiness mean in today's changing world? How do men and women re-learn to trust each other in spiritual depth and emotional intimacy?

 

Shakti Rising by Kavitha Chinnaiyan

In this book, which is written from the perspective of an ordinary woman—a cardiologist, wife and mother—these great goddesses come to life to reveal subtle aspects of the inner journey such as spiritual bypassing, spiritual materialism, and self-deception.

 

A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

"Classy fiction" in Joel's words, this novel tells the story of Count Alexander Rostov, a Russian aristocrat who is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol Hotel in Moscow for writing a poem with revolutionary ideas. The book spans over three decades, from 1922 to 1954, and follows the Count’s life in the hotel, where he makes friends, falls in love, witnesses history, and finds meaning in his existence. 

 

Women Who Run with Wolves by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés

The book is a collection of myths, stories, and folklore from various cultures and traditions that explore the archetype of the Wild Woman, the instinctual and creative force that lives within every woman. The author, who is a psychoanalyst and a storyteller, uses these tales to illustrate the challenges and opportunities that women face in their journey of self-discovery and empowerment. She also offers psychological insights and interpretations to help women reconnect with their inner wildness and wisdom.

 

A Heretic's Manifesto - Brendan O'Neill

The book is a collection of essays that challenge the dominant narratives and orthodoxies of our time. The author, who is the editor of spiked, an online magazine that defends freedom of speech and thought, argues that we need more heretics who are willing to question the new dogmas and taboos that stifle debate and progress. The book covers topics such as identity politics, cancel culture, Covid authoritarianism, climate change, democracy, and human rights. The book is a defence of Enlightenment values and a critique of the illiberal elites who seek to impose their views on everyone else.
