ANGeL's goal is to offer you through this website an immediate and intimate experience of living gratefully. In selecting topic resources, as elsewhere, we favor quality over quantity. This page is not meant to be a directory of related websites and organizations. Rather, we have selected a few specific links and readings that we believe are most helpful in getting you in touch with your experience. Of course, the Internet is vast and our knowledge is limited; so if you know of a link or a book that is more helpful than what's listed, be sure to let us know.
