Awakening is about letting go!


God is a hidden treasure! The pursuit of God can seem so difficult and evasive, only to find that the Divine is so easily found, hidden in plain sight.  The following is a list of books that I, Pat Evert, have enjoyed and summarized for my benefit and yours.  The summaries are mine and so contain my interpretation of the original books, so I encourage you to read the books for yourself as well.  May these summaries whet your appetite and direct you as to what topics of interest you would like to pursue.
