Also, Louise Hay’s publishing house offers a variety of media. Along with Louise Hay, this site includes other healers and empowerment coaches within the Human Potential Movement.
If you enjoy TED Talks, search by specialty, like psychology, coaching, or other forms of therapy. Also, you might search for a specific topic, like happiness or mental health. Here’s a wonderful talk by Ingrid Fetell Lee on finding joy. This talk focuses on feeding the soul from a different angle because it does not dwell on personal practices like those listed above. Instead, it focuses on the physical environments around us and their design: the importance of colorful, curvy, fun places to be.

Many resources can be found free at your local library. For instance, some local libraries offer services like Overdrive. City residents with a library account can check out online books and media at no cost.
