on our mind...

Books that set the restart button on life every time...

You may or may not have noticed but Jiyu means freedom and we tend to be a little more "woo woo" then most online stores. Our whole approach to shopping and treating yourself is that it is best enjoyed when your inner space is somewhat balanced. We truly believe that expressing yourself thru clothes is so much more fun when you feel good on the inside. Too "woo woo" for ya? Well we all do the yoga, the meditation, the detox diets but more importantly we think a conscious and clear mind is often the most liberating.
Here are some of our favorite books that free a cluttered mind. Even the most mindful yogi needs to hit the restart button every once in a awhile.
