Capturing Mindfulness

By Matthew Johnstone
Authors:
Matthew Johnstone
There are few better ways to consciously slow down and truly engage with your surroundings than when you are armed with a camera. With Capturing Mindfulness, de-stressing and being in the moment needn't be limited to simple diary-keeping and fill-in journals; instead you can capture it with your lens. Bestselling author Matthew Johnstone's latest book Capturing Mindfulness, is a natural follow on from his last book Quiet the Mind which came out in 2012.Matthew has been practicing what he terms 'photopresent' for the last 15 years and believes that next to meditation, this is one of the most creative and enjoyable ways to attain mindfulness in day-to-day life. The very essence of photography; after all, is all about focus and capturing 'the moment'.Matthew is fascinated by light, colour, composition and most importantly how he can see the world differently. For him, having camera in your hands is the reminder to consciously slow everything down from your breath, to your walk, to your thoughts and begin to really observe your surroundings as if seeing them for the first time.Mindfulness photography is about seeing something that no one else can, capturing something that will never happen again and finding beauty where it doesn't typically exist. When we become more consciously aware of where we are, what we're doing and what we're thinking, life can become calmer, more enjoyable and generally more manageable.

The Child Catchers

By Kathryn Joyce
Authors:
Kathryn Joyce
When Jessie Hawkins' adopted daughter told her she had another mom back in Ethiopia, Jessie didn't, at first, know what to think. She'd wanted her adoption to be great story about a child who needed a home and got one, and a family led by God to adopt. Instead, she felt like she'd done something wrong.Adoption has long been enmeshed in the politics of reproductive rights, pitched as a"win-win&rdquo compromise in the never-ending abortion debate. But as Kathryn Joyce makes clear in The Child Catchers , adoption has lately become even more entangled in the conservative Christian agenda.To tens of millions of evangelicals, adoption is a new front in the culture wars: a test of"pro-life&rdquo bona fides, a way for born again Christians to reinvent compassionate conservatism on the global stage, and a means to fulfill the"Great Commission&rdquo mandate to evangelize the nations. Influential leaders fervently promote a new"orphan theology,&rdquo urging followers to adopt en masse, with little thought for the families these"orphans&rdquo may already have.Conservative evangelicals control much of that industry through an infrastructure of adoption agencies, ministries, political lobbying groups, and publicly-supported"crisis pregnancy centres,&rdquo which convince women not just to"choose life,&rdquo but to choose adoption. Overseas, conservative Christians preside over a spiraling boom-bust adoption market in countries where people are poor and regulations weak, and where hefty adoption fees provide lots of incentive to increase the"supply&rdquo of adoptable children, recruiting"orphans&rdquo from intact but vulnerable families. The Child Catchers is a shocking exposé of what the adoption industry has become and how it got there, told through deep investigative reporting and the heartbreaking stories of individuals who became collateral damage in a market driven by profit and, now, pulpit command.Anyone who seeks to adopt- of whatever faith or no faith, and however well-meaning- is affected by the evangelical adoption movement, whether they know it or not. The movement has shaped the way we think about adoption, the language we use to discuss it, the places we seek to adopt from, and the policies and laws that govern the process. In The Child Catchers , Kathryn Joyce reveals with great sensitivity and empathy why, if we truly care for children, we need to see more clearly.
  • The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Workbook for Menopause

    By Sheryl Green
    Authors:
    Sheryl Green
    Although research supports the use of cognitive behavioral therapy to address the symptoms of menopause, this is the first book to explain how readers can use this approach to calm hot flashes, stop mood swings in their tracks, and manage other common physical symptoms. The Cognitive-Behavioral Workbook for Menopause can be used as an adjunctive treatment to hormone replacement therapy and herbal remedies, or may be effectively used on its own. This evidence-based program works by helping readers understand their symptoms and reduce the psychological self-talk that makes physical symptoms of menopause even worse. By reducing the anxiety about menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, readers reduce the duration and intensity of these symptoms. Because menopause can also affect women's mental health, the workbook includes help for menopausal depression, anxiety, irritability, and mood swings. It also features information on hormone replacement therapy and supplements that can help. This workbook is an essential resource for any menopausal woman seeking to regain control over her body, health, and mood.

    The Complete Book of Vinyasa Yoga

    By Srivatsa Ramaswami
    Authors:
    Srivatsa Ramaswami
    Sri T. Krishnamacharya (1888-1989) was the most influential figure in the last 100 years in the field of yoga. Many of today's best-known yoga teachers- including his brother-in-law B. K. S. Iyengar, his son T. K. V. Desikachar, and Pattabhi Jois, founder of Ashtanga yoga- studied with him and modeled their own yoga styles after his practice and teaching. Yet, despite his renowned status, Krishnamacharya's wisdom has never before been made completely available, just as he taught it. Now, in The Complete Book of Vinyasa Yoga, Srivatsa Ramaswami- Krishnamacharya's longest-standing student outside his own family- presents his master's teachings of yogasanas in unprecedented detail. Drawing upon his 33 years of direct study, beginning in 1955 and continuing nearly until his teacher's death, Ramaswami presents more than nine hundred poses and variations in logically structured sequences, precisely describing Krishnamacharya's complete Vinyasakrama system. Along with every movement of each yoga posture, he covers the proper breathing techniques for each pose- something no other book also derived from Krishnamacharya's teaching does. Nearly 1,000 full-colour photographs are featured in this authoritative landmark presentation of the study practiced by the "grandfather of modern yoga."

    Coping With Erectile Dysfunction

    By Michael E. Metz
    Authors:
    Michael E. Metz
    Coping With Erectile Dysfunction was awarded the best consumer book of 2006 by the Society for Sex Therapy and Research. Continuing the momentum of their revolutionary book, Coping with Premature Ejaculation, Michael Metz and Barry McCarthy, two of the nation's most respected sex therapists, bring you the only complete self-help resource on the market for men dealing with erectile dysfunction. Not only is this book the first to address this problem using the most current research into male sexuality, but it is the first to propose a treatment approach that unites medical, psychological, and relationship-enhancing techniques into a cooperative process that couples can work through together. The book begins with an uncomplicated explanation of ED and a discussion of the mythologies that surround much of male sexuality. After describing the integrated treatment approach, the book helps men develop a set of realistic sexual expectations for each phase of their lives and explores the role of their partners in resolving ED problems. Exercises help men assess the nature of their problems. The results of the assessments lead readers to explore medical, psychological, and couples-related interventions. The book closes with a detailed program for relapse prevention. Ultimately, the Metz-McCarthy approach encourages couples to explore their own sexual intimacy as a means of overcoming the problem.

From understanding the signs and symptoms at an early stage to modifying work and lifestyle from proven alternative therapies and helpful medications to nutrition and exercise, The Carpal Tunnel Helpbook provides authoritative advice and practical, up-to-date information to spare many patients the ordeal of surgery to treat their injuries.
