Description : Wild Courage is unique in consciously bringing the worlds of business and spirituality together. This book is for all those who find themselves facing a period of difficult inner and outer change. It could be an individual facing bankruptcy or redundancy, or a business in crisis, losing its way in a troubled market and needing to innovate to stay afloat in a changing world. Maybe you're struggling with how to lead your organisation through change, or how to provide comfort, support and inspiration to your subordinates, peers and team members. Or maybe the call to change is more subtle and more personal. It might present itself as a lack of fulfilment; a longing to be involved with more meaningful work, to make a more tangible contribution; a general unease with the ethics and integrity of your organisation; a concern about the environmental and social impact of your company; a sense of having lost yourself on the path to 'success'; the feeling that your life and work have become too small. Or maybe everything seems just fine in your life ...yet still your heart tells you that it's time for change. Elle Harrison guides us on a journey towards soulful leadership. 'I wanted to share the creativity, insight and wisdom of these soul perspectives with the business world and help to bring more wisdom and integrity into business.' Blending together the story of her own personal journey and the experiences of her clients with traditional myths, insights into the natural world, spiritual teachings and stories from inspirational leaders, Wild Courage challenges us to engage and embark upon our own adventure of change, summoning courage and wildness - to 'dig for gold in the shadows of the personal and the collective unconscious'.
Description : The dreams of a courageous Apache girl illuminate the hidden world of an Indian orphanage in this unforgettable story. Over forty years ago, Sharon Skolnick (Okee-Chee) and her sisters were removed from their Apache parents and became wards of the state of Oklahoma. She and her nearest sister made their way together through the Oklahoma Indian child welfare system. Shuttled back and forth between foster homes and orphanages, they finally ended up at the Murrow Indian Orphanage in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Here, Skolnick tells the gripping and ultimately triumphal account of the year the sisters spent there. ø Murrow was a place of wonder and terror, friendship and loneliness, where resilient children forged shifting alliances and conspired together yet yearned in solitude for a home and family to call their own. Skolnick paints an absorbing portrait of the world of an Indian orphanage, a world both bright and dark, vividly rendered through a child's eyes but tempered by the perspective of the woman who survived the Indian child welfare system and became an Apache artist.

Description : "At once profound, spiritual, and witty, Master of the Three Ways is a remarkable work about human nature, the essence of life, and how to live simply and with awareness. In three hundred and fifty-seven verses, the author, Hung Ying-ming a seventeenth-century Chinese sage explores good and evil, honesty and deception, wisdom and foolishness, and heaven and hell. He draws from the wisdom of the Three Creeds Taoism, Confucianism, and Zen Buddhism to impress upon us that by combining simple elegance with the ordinary, we can make our lives artistic and poetic. This sense, along with a particular understanding of Zen that makes art from the simple in everyday life, has permeated Chinese and Japanese culture to this day. The work is divided into two books. The first generally deals with the art of living in society and the second is concerned with man's solitude and contemplations of nature. These themes repeatedly spill over into each other, creating multiple levels of meaning."
