CC and Larry

Living with openness and honesty is a life-long practice. We have both benefited so much in our growth from the inspiring words of many different teachers. We would like to share some of the best resources that we have found to contribute to a life of connection and authenticity.

Students of Solsara will often have dramatic and profound openings during one of the immersions. They ask us how they can maintain this new level of openness when they return to their daily lives. The books and resources below will help you in that pursuit.
