Description : This book invites women of all ages into a conversation that challenges the pervasive lie of "never good enough." This common subtext of modern life undermines a woman's appreciation of her own inherent beauty and goodness. The authors recommend 8 Radical Moves that women can make, alone or ideally in the good company of other women, to take on this challenge, to deepen this conversation. The Moves are radical because they aim directly at the center of a woman's being, the inner space of her true nature, her basic goodness, rather than because they require any extreme actions. Nonetheless, the conviction that "never good enough" is a lie requires more than lip service. The authors guide readers in identifying the courage, strength and love they already possess, but habitually deny, to embrace and live by this conviction of self respect, day to day in mind, body and heart. They further encourage women to make this stand with and in the presence of other women to increase everybody's likelihood for success. Regina Sara Ryan, author of numerous books in wellness, women's studies and spirituality (Wellness Workbook; Woman Awake; Igniting the Inner Life) is an elder in her seventies. Shinay Tredeau, a yoga teacher, lifestyle coach, dancer and emerging writer is a "millennial" in her twenties. Together, they bring to this warm and personal treatment a synergy of years of experience in contemplative spiritual practice and dynamic body discipline. Their message is addressed to their sisters, mothers, friends and students, of all ages; to any who suffer from the dis-ease of self-hatred in some form. Each of the 8 Radical Moves provides a slightly different access to clearer self-understanding, leading to self-compassion. For some, the Move to "Inhabit Your Body" will be key to claiming (or reclaiming) a more loving relationship with themselves. For others, the Move called "Learn to Fly" will be just the encouragement needed to refine a spiritual search. Other topics include: - the danger of comparisons with other women - the need to face dark emotions, with compassion - the power of friendship in the quest for self-acceptance - the use of journal writing to articulate developing truth - gratitude as a way of life. This straightforward and challenging narrative is filled with dozens of personal stories, making it ideal for women's groups and book clubs to study and practice.

Description : Click this link to read a review of Einstein, Money and Contentment. Bridging the academic and practical, Palmquist has taken what the open minded reader will view as a first step toward defining a generic "Grand Unification Theory." Objecting to the use of the word, "Theory," Palmquist refers to "Cosmolaw," because he bases his work upon proven formulas controlling the behavior of electricity. His proposed answer to the long-sought-after "GUT" should interest physicists. His inter-disciplinary application of those principles to the field of everyday life should interest economists. The attention he centers upon the commonalities between the laws of nature and the nature of God should get the attention of theologians. Even skeptical scientists must fill out 1040 forms. If they take issue with Palmquist''s views of Physics and cosmology they can nevertheless grasp his reasoning that no government under today''''''''s monetary policies can be rational if it also insists upon collecting income taxes from its citizens. The formulas discussed by Palmquist are shown to be common to all of nature and can be applied to all of life. His study embraces the fields of Economics and spiritual life. Blending observations from natural law with his observations about Economics and ordinary life, Palmquist makes the case that economists should try to provide a better society for us, while we as individuals, using Cosmolaw, find contentment in whatever state life finds us.
