Resources

This page is a collection of resources from various areas that we have found helpful and would recommend. Both of us have spent many years using all kinds of resources to further our research and explore different areas of interest. It is a great privilege to have such wonderful sources of information, many of which are freely available. They have been an undeniable source of richness, inspiration and learning for us, and we hope you will find some goodness in them too.

The list is organised alphabetically by topic and then by type of resource (books or online). Scroll until you find something that interests you. Occasionally we will put some notes or clarifications, but no lengthy reviews or we would run out of space! Sometimes we have put samples or further specific links under a category as options we highly recommend or places to start exploring. Please be creative and mindful in your use of these resources, and explore at your leisure.

Feel free to write to us with your thoughts on any of these resources at thestillspace.sg@gmail.com.
