The New Me

Halle Butler
Authors:
Halle Butler

I'm still trying to make the dream possible: still might finish my cleaning project, still might sign up for that yoga class, still might, still might. I step into the shower and almost faint, an image of taking the day by the throat and bashing its head against the wall floating in my mind. Thirty-year-old Millie just can't pull it together. Misanthropic and morose, she spends her days killing time at a thankless temp job until she can return home to her empty apartment, where she oscillates wildly between self-recrimination and mild delusion, fixating on all the little ways she might change her life. Then she watches TV until she drops off to sleep, and the cycle begins again. When the possibility of a full-time job offer arises, it seems to bring the better life she's envisioning - one that involves nicer clothes, fresh produce, maybe even financial independence - within reach. But with it also comes the paralyzing realization, lurking just beneath the surface, of just how hollow that vision has become. Darkly hilarious and devastating, THE NEW ME is a dizzying descent into the mind of a young woman trapped in the funhouse of American consumer culture.

Handwriting, Orion Plain and Simple

Eve Bingham
Authors:
Eve Bingham

Handwriting analysis, or graphology, is the science involved in producing a personality profile of the writer by examining the characteristics, traits and strokes of an individual's handwriting. It seems impossible, but a trained graphologist can gather an astonishing amount of information about the writer just from analysing their handwriting. Besides creating a complete personality profile, many other things are revealed in your handwriting, such as health issues, morality, past experiences, hidden talents, mental problems - to name just a few.The Orion Plain & Simple title explains what handwriting analysis is and why it works. The author gives a brief history of the art then delves into every aspect of writing, including:· The way the writing moves across the page· The meaning of the pen, pencil, and ink chosen· The slope of the script and the amount of space between words· The size and shape of the individual letters and signatures· The meaning of writing styles in headed paper, logos, and shop signs

Xiu Yang

Mimi Kuo-Deemer
Authors:
Mimi Kuo-Deemer

For centuries, Chinese sages, rulers and spiritual seekers have embraced a simple yet powerful principle to enable them to live in harmony with the Source of nature and all life; the art of 'self-cultivation' or, xiu yang. Xiu yang works with the idea that we can steadily nurture our capacity to being fully human and fully awake. Like a field that is patiently cultivated to optimally grow the nourishing and healthy crops, we can undertake practices aimed at smoothing out the roughness and irregularities in our bodies, minds and spirits in order to produce a deep, lasting spiritual happiness. Xiu yang promotes the idea that inner balance leads to outer radiance: in order to be in harmony with the world, we must first be in harmony with ourselves. By tending to the field of our own bodies, hearts, minds and relationships, we can start making positive changes within our lives and in the lives of others. In this nurturing lifestyle guide, Mimi Kuo-Deemer champions the contemporary value of adopting this ancient approach. Through a combination of practices from meditation and mindfulness to yoga and qigong, Xiu Yang offers a fresh approach to finding balance and bringing peace into your life, home and community. Part I: The Art of Xiu Yang Part II: Xiu Yang for a Healthy and Harmonious Body Part III: Xiu Yang for a Balanced Mental and Emotional Life Part IV: Xiu Yang for a Happier Place in the World

Authentic Gravitas

Rebecca Newton
Authors:
Rebecca Newton

Having a powerful, meaningful impact on others is not about being the most dominant person in the room; it's about being intentional, curious, and courageous.Organizational psychologist and executive coach Rebecca Newton has found that even her most successful clients still want more of one quality: gravitas. They want their words to carry weight, to have a positive, lasting impact on those around them. Gravitas can seem like an elusive, intangible quality, but it isn't about adopting the style of another or being someone you're not. Newton draws on extensive research and experience coaching business leaders to show what underpins authentic gravitas and how anyone can develop it. She presents the counterintuitive idea that in order to be valued, we shouldn't spend all our time and energy trying to stand out from the crowd; instead, we should focus on the crowd - connecting with others and understanding their needs in order to make a significant difference.Newton debunks the myths of gravitas and gives readers the practical tools to develop it by: * Minimizing the gaps between intention, action, and impact * Remaining true to yourself while adapting to work successfully with people who have different styles * Choosing to be courageous regardless of how confident you feel - as you engage in courageous behaviours, confidence naturally buildsAuthentic gravitas extends beyond commanding presence in the room during a key meeting; it's about the small things you can do beforehand, during, and in all the spaces in between - to be someone who genuinely adds substantive value in the workplace and beyond.(p) Orion Publishing Group 2019

The Book of Hope

Eileen Campbell
Authors:
Eileen Campbell

"We need vision and conviction that the future can be better. With motivation we can act with bravery and daring. Determinations help drive through our vision but is balanced by patience and letting things unfold without trying to force them. Instead of being afraid of the future, we can cultivate the habit of love (the very opposite of fear). . . . With hope the world becomes transformed."We live in chaotic times. Nearly every country in the Western world is confronted with a variety of daunting problems ranging from the rise of neo-Fascist parties, economic stagnation, falling currencies, and a widespread sense of disenfranchisement. There is a sense that we no longer control our lives that circumstances have careened out of control leaving us adrift in a sea of change. Hope seems to be in short supply, and fear at times threatens to overwhelm us as we try to stay afloat in our sea of troubles.This is a book of daily meditations designed to help restore a sense of hopefulness and purpose. It is a book for women who feel overwhelmed and underappreciated. It is the perfect antidote to despair: a book that teaches women to practice hope - to take concrete steps in the face of pain and despair and to make their lives happier.Throughout the book Campbell includes stories of those who have triumphed over adversity and have been sustained by hope, such as Anne Frank, Grace Lee Boggs, Ann Davison, Marie Curie, Artemisia Gentileschi, Hildegard of Bingen, and Xiaolu Guo. She also includes the experiences of those who have been abused or kidnapped--Maya Angelou, Oprah Winfrey, and Natascha Kampusch, for example--and the stories of refugees who have made new lives for themselves, escaping from Uganda, Iran, and Syria.

The Use Of The Self

F.M. Alexander
Authors:
F.M. Alexander

The world famous classic by the originator of the Alexander TechniqueFrederick Matthias Alexander was born in Tasmania in 1869. In his twenties, he became a professional reciter of dramatic pieces. After almost completely losing his voice he pioneered a method of improving the 'use' of his body musculature in all positions and movements and cured his vocal problems without medical aid.Alexander then realised that most people stood, sat and moved in a defective manner and that incorrect 'use of the self' might be the cause of much human suffering. He moved to London and established a school, publishing several books and achieving success, with recommendations from famous contemporaries such as Aldous Huxley and Sir Stafford Cripps. Alexander died in 1955 but his 'principle' lives on through the work of many teachers of his method.
