Personal Growth Resource Roundup #7

It’s Saturday and time for another roundup of some powerful personal growth resources. As always, I’ll be drawing from sources beyond the typical personal growth arena. After all, personal growth is a full-time job and the best opportunities for growth often come in unexpected ways.

But let’s start with a very personal growth focused opportunity. If you have not heard of IONS – The Institute of Noetic Studies – I highly recommend that you check them out. They are on the leading edge of thought and bringing their extensive resources to the study and research of leading edge phenomena.

And, to celebrate the season of giving. IONS has opened their entire multimedia library at Shift In Action through December 24th. This is one of the most extensive collections of powerful personal growth resources I have seen. The library includes videos of Caroline Myss, Larry Dossey, Lynn McTaggart, teleseminars with Neale Donald Walsch, Deepak Chopra, articles from Lynn Twist, Jean Huston, and much much more!

So go check it out before the 24th. (You can become a member after that if you want).

Here’s the link again: Shift in Action.

Next up is an entry from Deb Call. I was very happy to discover Deb’s blog after following the trail begun by Karen Lynch, leading through a wonderful entry from Rick Cockrum and ending up at this insightful look at the Power of Plodding from Deb. Once again, I’m thrilled at the beautiful interconnectedness of this blogosphere.

I was having an online chat with my friend Dawud yesterday. I’m always amazed at how profound our virtual “chats” chats can be. Anyone who says that virtual communication is less powerful than personal connection has not had a chat with Dawud! And if you have not yet read Dawud’s entry about the birth of his daughter Laila it is one of the most beautiful birth stories I have ever read!

Another friend, Adam Kayce, has an extremely interesting post on the power of being a spiritual generalist. I’ve never thought of it in those terms, but when you read his post, you’ll see that it makes a lot of sense.

And finally, if you’ve ever had a difficult time accepting a compliment, Liz Strauss has some good tips on How to receive a compliment without looking like an idiot! Surely an important skill to have.

So until next week, enjoy these personal growth resources. They should keep you busy for a while!
