Essays that Remind Us How We are All Connected

This powerful collection of words from award-winning journalist Richard Louv examines the interconnections among people—with each chapter revealing the delicate strands of life that weave us all together.

Touching on the simple truths. It’s often the little things that remind us how connected we all are to one another. Through his insightful reflections, Louv reveals the many places we can find the strands that bind us to one another, and he explores where we can find these strands in our lives—from family and friendship to community and nature. Most importantly, his words remind us of the importance of seeking out these strands in our own lives.

The great web of life. In this collection of inspirational stories, discussion, and quotations, Louv paints a picture for us of the great web of life. With warmth and wisdom, he weaves for us a tale of unity, composed of numerous stories and heartfelt life lessons. As we discover how we are all connected, we also learn how it is our responsibility to care for each other and the world around us. As Louv shares, “In our society, it is easy to lose sight of the web. To mend our hoop, our protective gauze, we must envision the whole ecology and not only the parts.”

Open up this book of inspirational messages and discover:

  • Stories that will open your eyes to the web of life
  • A joyous celebration of the simple things that unite us
  • A philosophy in life that you’ll want to live out!

Soul Moments

By

Synchronicity--the occurrence of meaningful coincidence--has fascinated scholars and ordinary folks alike for centuries. While Carl Jung and others have dealt with the theory of synchronicity, until now no one has highlighted the stories themselves. Phil Cousineau has put together a fascinating collection of these intriguing stories from wellknown authors such as Huston Smith and Larry Dossey, as well as people from many other walks of life. Borrowing examples from literature, poetry, myths, and movies such as Casablanca, Cousineau shows that synchronicity is an unfolding, a sudden connection to our soul and destiny. Recognizing these soul moments help us follow the thread of our lives and sense the invisible bonds that connect us.

Kids' Random Acts of Kindness

Random Acts of Kindness Series

Want to Feel Hopeful About the Future?

Share in inspirational stories of generosity written by children of all ages that reveal their surprisingly insightful feelings about kindness and compassion.

Look back at why the Random Acts of Kindness series was such a sensation. When the adult version of Random Acts of Kindness was first published, hundreds of teachers across the country gave assignments to their students to write about unsolicited acts that they had experienced or initiated. Teachers sent the results to Conari Press which then put out a call for similar stories in a teacher’s magazine. Stories poured in and the result was Kid’s Random Acts of Kindness. Whimsical and funny to moving and thoughtful, Kid’s Random Acts of Kindness helps restore your belief in the potential for goodness in man.

In Kid’s Random Acts of Kindness, you will see how children are the truest examples of open-hearted giving:

  • Kids are hopeful. They believe they can change, easily and often. They look forward not back. They like to think about what could be, not what was.
  • Kids are possibility addicts. They’re always working on something. If you listen you’ll hear a language of hopefulness and striving, an elasticity that keeps them going and trying.
  • Kids love to master challenges. They want to try new things, move in new directions, be productive. They are risk takers, sometimes out of faith, sometimes out of desperation. More than anything else, children want and need to belong, to partner, to collaborate.

Readers of other books in the Random Acts of Kindness series and motivational books and stories like Chicken Soup for the Soul: Random Acts of KindnessA Pebble for Your ThoughtsI've Been Thinking…, and You Can Do All Things will love the encouraging, inspirational stories in Kid's Random Acts of Kindness.
