Metanoia is the greek word for “to change one’s mind.”

Below are a number of my personal favorite books including and beyond the ones I share in the video above.  Each one has helped me “to change my mind” about many a topic in life.

Read them at your own caution.  They will disrupt your life in the best way possible.
