Bichara Recommends...

Here is a list of the books that I have read that have been very influential in shaping my worldview.  As you can  tell from the list below, I have come to appreciate that wisdom comes from two sources:  the spiritual, religious mode of thinking, and the scientific method.  At the bottom of it all, we model reality broadly based on the totality of human experiences, and specifically on our own individual unique experiences. 

This broader view grounds us all and and our individual experiences guide us.

Please enjoy!!
