These eight divine New Age reads belong on every soul-searcher’s bookshelf this fall. Whether you’re seeking more happiness, creativity or zen in your life, we have a book rec for you. Reader beware: This may be the most enlightening reading season of your life.


1. Change Maker by Rebecca Austill-Clausen ($14): Losing a sibling is one of the most heartbreaking events a human can go through — but Rebecca Austill-Clausen’s relationship with her brother didn’t end when he died. She found that she could communicate with him in the afterlife. Chapter by chapter, Change Maker explores Clausen’s spiritually transformative experience and her profound acceptance that the soul’s journey is longer than she ever imagined.

This Trip will change your life

2. This Trip Will Change Your Life by Jennifer B. Monahan ($17): We devour profound stories about people connecting with their spirit, and this New Age delight doesn’t disappoint. One spontaneous trip to Yucatan, Mexico forever changed Jennifer Monahan’s connection to the spirit world, and we guarantee you’ll be mesmerized by her extraordinary goosebump-inducing journey toward discovering life’s grand purpose.

The Universe has your back

Present Over Perfect

6. Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist and Ashley Wiersma ($8): For the daily hustler who’s constantly saturated in their professional grind and routines, it’s easy to forget the meaning of “being present.” Present Over Perfect is an education within itself and gently reminds readers that being an engaged human is the most important goal, and that everything else can take a spiritual backseat.
