Grounded Relating’s Resource page exists to provide web links and book titles, among other items, to assist our readers and the general seeker alike to find the missing piece, or the next step for the very personal journey to peace, bliss or satiety. There is a Universe of resources online and in the flesh, as above and so below, to help each of us stay grounded! Please enjoy, and forward these resources to any who seem interested.

The loose organization on this page, is just that: very loose and topical. Generally speaking this page will offer resources on the Enneagram, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, spirituality in general, and other general resources of unitive consciousness. Where possible, links will be provided and kept up-to-date. Please contact us if you find some stellar resource missing, or have a suggestion of a resource to add.
