"Unfuck Your Boundaries: Build Better Relationships through Consent, Communication, and Expressing Your Needs"
By Faith G. Harper, Ph.D. Microcosm Publishing. ISBN: 978-1621061007
Boundaries are the ways we communicate our needs. They are what allow us to feel safe among strangers, in everyday interactions, and in our closest relationships. When we have healthy boundaries, we have a strong foundation in an uncertain world. And when someone crosses your boundaries, or you cross someone else's, the result range from unsettling to catastrophic. In this book, bestselling author Dr. Faith Harper offers a full understanding of issues of boundaries and consent, how we can communicate and listen more effectively, and how to survive and move on from situations where our boundaries are violated. Along the way, you'll learn when and how to effectively say "no" (and "yes"), troubleshoot conflict, and respect your own and others' boundaries like a pro. You'll be amazed at how much these skills improve your relationships with friends, strangers, coworkers, and loved ones.

Boundaries & Protection by Pixie Lighthorse
BOUNDARIES & PROTECTION
Honoring Self, Honoring Others
Boundaries & Protection is Pixie’s greatest hit.
Lighthorse takes us on a healing journey through our developmental territory to track what’s behind our inability to set boundaries for ourselves, as well as honor the boundaries of others. Gentle and firm, B&P guides the reader to remember that while compassion may be infinite, physical, mental, and emotional energy for conflict is often in limited supply. Pixie Lighthorse’s fourth book is guided by the graceful, territorial, fiercely protective spirit of Mountain Lion.
This is a book for deepening our relationships and intimacies, for developing vitality. Where our boundaries were violated as children, where our caregivers did not adequately protect us, we may unconsciously be living out the same patterns in the present and perpetuate them into the future. This book helps the reader see the imprints of the past while inspiring courage to change behavioral patterns, to self-advocate, and to make relational re-bonds and repairs.
With 52 short, powerful chapters on a wide range of themes,Boundaries & Protectionis designed for reading and re-reading. It’s meant to be carried as a companion when you need to exercise self-care and draw lines in the sand for yourself.

The Library of Esoterica: TAROT by Taschen
To explore the Tarot is to explore ourselves, to be reminded of the universality of our longing for meaning, for purpose and for a connection to the divine. This 600-year-old tradition reflects not only a history of seekers, but our journey of artistic expression and the ways we communicate our collective human story.
For many in the West, Tarot exists in the shadow place of our cultural consciousness, a metaphysical tradition assigned to the dusty glass cabinets of the arcane. Its history, long and obscure, has been passed down through secret writing, oral tradition, and the scholarly tomes of philosophers and sages. Hundreds of years and hundreds of creative hands—mystics and artists often working in collaboration—have transformed what was essentially a parlor game into a source of divination and system of self-exploration, as each new generation has sought to evolve the form and reinterpret the medium.
Author Jessica Hundley traces this fascinating history in Tarot, the debut volume in TASCHEN’s Library of Esoterica series. The book explores the symbolic meaning behind more than 500 cards and works of original art, two thirds of which have never been published outside of the decks themselves. It's the first ever visual compendium of its kind, spanning from Medieval to modern, and artfully arranged according to the sequencing of the 78 cards of the Major and Minor Arcana. It explores the powerful influence of Tarot as muse to artists like Salvador Dalí and Niki de Saint Phalle and includes the decks of nearly 100 diverse contemporary artists from around the world, all of whom have embraced the medium for its capacity to push cultural identity forward. Rounding out the volume are excerpts from thinkers such as Éliphas Lévi, Carl Jung, and Joseph Campbell; a foreword by artist Penny Slinger; a guide to reading the cards by Johannes Fiebig; and an essay on oracle decks by Marcella Kroll.

Jessica Hundley is an author, filmmaker and journalist. She has written for the likes of Vogue, Rolling Stone, and The New York Times, and has authored books on artists including Dennis Hopper, David Lynch, and Gram Parsons.

Goldmining the Shadows by Pixie Lighthorse
GOLDMINING THE SHADOWS
Honoring the Medicine of Wounds
Goldmining the Shadowsis book five and the healing companion to Pixie Lighthorse'sBoundaries & Protection.
This book is written for readers who want to hold themselves accountable for the harm their wounds are causing themselves and others. It is a call for transformation through self-learning and self-knowing.
We all experience hurts, especially early in development. Our pain causes us to adapt for emotional survival. Our behavioral responses to pain and suffering create unconscious “shadows” that follow us to work and into relationships, creating sets of circumstances from the trajectory of our wounds.
The tendency in western, colonial culture is to suppress or ignore pain, which only fuels our shadows’ needs for domination and/or victimization. This book encourages the reader to shift the perspective and to see shadows as frightened inner children, desperate to even out the imbalances caused by our developmental adaptations.
Shadow work is an act of liberation—one with the potential to transform our lives and our culture for the better. Pain— individual and collective—contains valuable wisdom. With loving compassion and lived experience, Lighthorse guides readers to recognize, call out, and learn from our pain.
Composed of 52 short, digestible one-page chapters,Goldmining the Shadowsis designed for picking up when compassionate truth is needed. It is meant to be carried as a companion and reread at different seasons of life, its many facets revealed over time.
